Happy Halloween!

The storm is gone, and a LOT of snow has melted away.  Woohoo!  I got out on my bike for the third time since Moab.  Yes, that is a once a week ride average since then.  2010 training starts very soon!  I felt super strong today.  NOT going for a run the day before a ride makes a huge difference in how my legs feel! 🙂  I think the running fitness is also crossing over and helping a bit.

I took the mountain bike up to Gold Hill, and knew I’d get to play in the mud!

The roads were pretty good until I got to about 7500′. Then the muddy fun commenced.

Dropping down Lickskillet to Lefthand Canyon. I decided coming down 4 mile would be more of a wet, muddy adventure than I was up for. 🙂

Sweet views.

I ran into Jeff on top of Lee Hill(he left before me today). We were coming up the hill from different directions (I was heading home), and I turned around and went with him to finish off the duration of his ride.

Looks like we will have some nice Fall weather for at least 5 days.  I’m bummed about the time change… it’s depressing.  We are probably heading to Moab next weekend to ride some trails!

Here is the elevation/HR profile from my NEW Suunto T6!! I LOVE IT!

Up to Gold Hill, up Lee Hill, up Old Stage.  SWEEET!  I wanted to keep going,  but made myself to home.
