Ran from my house to a natural area which is in a valley with no shade. Nice hot run (95 degrees). Also my first run in my new Ultimate Direction race vest. Vest felt weird for about 10 minutes, then I didn&#39;t notice it again. We&#39;ll see how it holds up to tomorrow&#39;s long run.&nbsp;</p> <p>This week marks my first 40 mile week since probably 2013. Pretty happy about that. Especially happy about finishing the week with no soreness or aches to mention. 7 weeks til race day.&nbsp;</p> Sat, 09 Jun 2018 06:00:00 Fri, Jun 08, 2018 http://jcole.fastrunningblog.com/blog-06-08-2018.html <p>Easy run up to Horsetooth Reservior and back. 57 min. 600 ft of climbing.&nbsp;</p> Fri, 08 Jun 2018 06:00:00 Thu, Jun 07, 2018 http://jcole.fastrunningblog.com/blog-06-07-2018.html <p>Easy miles around my neighborhood. Regretting eating all that jalepeno pizza last night.&nbsp;</p> Thu, 07 Jun 2018 06:00:00 Wed, Jun 06, 2018 http://jcole.fastrunningblog.com/blog-06-06-2018.html <p>Hill workout on the Towers Trail. 15 min warmup on flat trails. 10x2 min hard/2 min walking. CD down the hill. Felt pretty good. Very muggy by CO standards ~50% humidity and 80 degrees. 1400 ft of climbing.&nbsp;</p> <p>Weekly climb total: 3200 ft.&nbsp;</p> Wed, 06 Jun 2018 06:00:00 Mon, Jun 04, 2018 http://jcole.fastrunningblog.com/blog-06-04-2018.html <p>Easy (supposed to be anyway) run around Maxwell, Pineridge, and Spring Creek natural areas. Went a little too hard considering yesterday&#39;s run and the heat (93 degrees).&nbsp;</p> Mon, 04 Jun 2018 06:00:00 Sun, Jun 03, 2018 http://jcole.fastrunningblog.com/blog-06-03-2018.html <p>Went up to State Forest State Park for a long run on the Never Summer course. Didn&#39;t expect much snow. Ended up postholing in knee deep snow for most of the morning.&nbsp;Gorgeous weather and amazing trails. 11 mi in 2:34. Took a lot of breaks to check maps and talk to skiers.&nbsp;</p> <p><img alt="" src="https://pbs.twimg.com/media/Dey_YwLVAAAOZc3.jpg" style="width: 1200px; height: 900px;" /><img alt="" src="https://pbs.twimg.com/media/Dey_YwMVMAAo2RU.jpg" style="width: 1200px; height: 900px;" /></p> Sun, 03 Jun 2018 06:00:00 Sat, Jun 02, 2018 http://jcole.fastrunningblog.com/blog-06-02-2018.html <p>Hello again FRB. As I&#39;m ramping up for the Never Summer 100k, I decided it&#39;d be nice to start recording runs on here again. Hopefully some good pictures from training in the Rockies soon.&nbsp;</p> <p>Today&#39;s run was an easy loop around my neighborhood and local natural area. 80/20 trail/road mix. Fairly flat.&nbsp;</p> <p>327 ft of ascent for the month.&nbsp;</p> Sat, 02 Jun 2018 06:00:00
