Pikes Peak Greenway & Sondermann

10 Miles 7:51 average per mile
Longest run so far. Trying to get some turnover back. I might be racing in
5 weeks. I for sure wont be race ready just want to run the best I can.
So this week didn't go as planned only 3 runs. Work got the better of me this week.
Week 6 total 21.8 miles

***Update I wont be racing in 5 weeks after all. I can use my 2018 marathon at
New Orleans as my qualifier for 2020 PPA!!!

Trail was mostly snow covered. Clear in some sections where the sun shines.
Torrents gripped pretty good overall. Going to need to get out my Katoolas soon.
Next week looks snowy and cold.
Looking to purchase a rowing machine. My front runner is the concepts 2 model D.
It's pricey but the reviews are fantastic. Maybe it will go on sale for Black Friday?

He was literally on the trail with me and heading towards me.
It all ended well:)

1427 elevation gain. 9400 to 9900 ft.
Longest run of the year. Knee was a bit sore again. I think the

strengthen it.

Garden of the Gods

4.57 miles 43:29 9:31 average per mile
Knee has been sore last couple days. Using my recovery tools to try
to work it out. Maybe it's from the increased running the past 2 weeks.
I have basically gone from 0 to 4-6 mile runs. I know it doesn't sound
like much but it's very noticeably to me and my current lack of fitness.
I really enjoy this process of trying to basically rebuild myself up.
I'm excited to see the progress going forward.
