CCC 100 Recovery .... Done!

I didn't run or walk more than a mile for 5 days. Friday Jenn and I did 1 lap around Lake Youngs in ~2:20. I don't think I could have gone much faster although running was easier than walking. I took Saturday off. We spent most of the day getting ready to go and then driving to Summit Lake.


Sunday morning we went for a run, well she got a 10 minute head start because I had to change a battery in my foot pod. I ran 4 very hilly miles in 35 minutes and Jenn did 3. We finished together. Ahhhh! And other than some minor pain in the socket of my hip everything was great. Later we did some cross training out on the lake. I went water skiing and tubing with some friends. I can't believe after over 10 years, I was able to pop right up on one ski. I forgot how much fun that is. It’s also a great upper body workout.
Next up Cle Elum 50K.

Sounds like the recovery is going well Arthur.

What are you planning to do for Cle Elum ... early start or not. I would like to carpool if possible and would be willing to go early. I can drive as well ... just don't think all of us should drive since we live so close. Heard from Shawn?

Shawn said she is volunteering, no early start for me this time, carpool sounds great.

Congratulations on your CCC finish. Did you get a buckle or is that picture from another year?

Yeah, what's up with the Buckle?

The buckle was a gift from Dave Dutton. I'm considering it a loaner until I get my own.
