Fit After Little Bits

eat right..work hard..play harder

Ski, Run, Bike

It’s Monday! Everyone recovered from a weekend of playing?? In the midst of these silly colds, we managed to enjoy some quality play time over here.

On Saturday, I had a goal to get in 4 miles of running….I made it to 4 and when I got home the dog BEGGED to go out for a bit with me, so I was able to get in an extra mile for a total of 5! Bam! Then we spent the rest of the day in the hot tub….kidding. Kind of. We were able to watch the Cyclocross National Single Speed races first 😉 So fun seeing our friends on the YouTube feed!

Sunday morning, we opted to take a slow start to the day. Since we didnt want to share our germs, we decided to skip church.

Once we felt up to activity (you know…when the caffeine kicked in), we got in the truck and headed into town to go skiing. We headed to Howelsen Hill where they have free skiing on Sundays so we could play with Brooke on the magic carpet. Being outside meant that we wouldnt be in anyone’s face and spread our sniffles!

It was pretty much the perfect day to be outside.

Not sure what we are doing….

Dressed and ready to go! Kid crushed it! It was my first time on downhill skis in about 6 years. Like riding a bike….right?

The magic carpet may be the strangest thing I have ever experienced….

Ken sent me over to do a run off the T-bar…um, I thought the magic carpet was strange. I wasn’t quite sure I was going to make it up the T-bar….it was a workout and a sketchy one at that. Only a black diamond down from there…no problem. :/ Managed to keep it upright but was happy to be back to the bunny hill. hahahaha.

Once we were all ready for some lunch, we packed up and headed home. We made it just in time to watch the U23 men and then the elite Cyclocross races!

I kind of lucked out in that there was a 30 minute break between the men’s and women’s races and I got out for my LAST 3.1 miles!! DONE and DUSTED!

My body was pretty excited to get a break from running today 😉

This morning, Ken and I got up at 5:45 and rode the trainers! It had been over a month since I had been on my bike and it felt great….okay, not great…my legs are thrashed from the last 2 weeks, but it felt good to be on the bike again!

I even showered and dried my hair (well, a little bit).

The day was spent cleaning up after the weekend and doing the usual Monday chores. Around noon, it was time to register the husband for the Steamboat Stinger! He will be doing the full race this year and I will be doing the race as a duo with my sister-in-law, Errin!

Errin sent me this gem….I am famous!!

This was getting near the end of the trail marathon last year (the day after the full mountain bike race and I was DONE!). Super excited to make it on their website!

Check it out here… https://www.honeystinger.com/steamboat-stinger and sign up to race 😉

That’s about it for us! Cant believe the summer race season is already filling up. Excited for the fun that awaits us this year! Outside is awesome!
