Rode mountain bike up and back the Quarry trail.  Fun ride.  When is one of my brothers going to take up mountain biking?

Afternoon run.  Really felt sluggish today.  Probably because it is afternoon and I just ate a great-harvest frosted cookie. avg 8:48

Mountain bike ride approx 9 miles with some fun ups and downs.  I am slow at times but whats wrong with staying in the Granny gear.

Steady and slow with 45th hill to skyline high.  Not to shabby. avg 8:48

 Also added on a 6.45 mile quarry trail out and back trail climb.  Hard ups, but beautiful scenery and a downhill section that is so fun that I like to scream like a giddy school girl.

avg 8:30.  Felt sucky this late afternoon.  Maybe posttraumatic syndrome after going to the internal med doc for my prostate screen.  All checks out at least.

I'm recording this as a run, but it was really a run/power walk.  Decided I need to conquer Granduer peak by millcreek once and for all.  I have started up twice before.  This by the way is the straight up trail by parleys not the wimpy but longer switch back trail from millcreek.  2.5 miles or so up took me 1 hour 25 minutes.  8 minutes at top to survey the awesome view then ran the 2.5 or so back to the car in 30 minutes.  the up hill is a lung bursting 3299 foot climb to 8299 feet ,the down was killing my quads to the point I didnt know if I could keep standing by the finish.  anyway there it is. I am a star.  a star with dimming light but a star none the less.

Hike through BlueJohn Canyon with a group.  This is the slot canyon in southern Utah where aron ralston lost his arm.  This is in a very remote location, but was a beautiful slot.  6.5 mile hike.  9 mile hike the day before in similar country.

Keeping it slow and easy at 9:30 avg
