My wife and I went to the gym together this morning to lift. It was fun and I showed her a few different exercises for her arms and she was worked. i worked biceps, triceps, chest, lats, delts and did 5 sets of pull-ups. It was a fun work out.

I am still a touch sore because of the race on Saturday, so I wanted to give my legs some work without abusing them too much, so I did 30 minutes on the elliptical. My plan was to take it easy, but I eventually found myself on the max setting for the last 5 minutes. everything feels great and I could have kept pushing, but I backed off just to be safe.

I think I might be climbing something after work tomorrow as long as everything feels ok.

Today was pretty busy for me and I didn't get a chance to work out until after my kids were in bed. My legs are completely recovered from Sapper Joe except for some very minor soreness in my right knee. I will probably he in the mountains doing some steep hiking tomorow (today) so I wanted to rest my legs.

I did work my core/abs with the ball for 45 minutes while watching TV and had a really good work out, except my wife told my I was grunting too much. haha. I guess that means I was working hard.

My wife and kids were away visiting family today, so I figured I would take advantage of the time to climb something, and my friend Matt and I were going to climb the Sundial Peak up Big Cottonwood, but he cancelled on me. I was having the hardest time deciding where to go, and after I got off work I changed my clothes and still didn't know where I was going. I ended up driving to the trailhead for Mt. Wire because I feel very comfortable doing it solo.

It was very hot and within 10 minutes I was hiking alone and couldn't see anyone else on the trail at all. I took off my shirt to soak up the rays and it felt great. My knee has been a touch sore, so I didn't want to push at all, and I didn't. I made it to the top in 57:00, which isn't bad at all, especially since I wasn't pushing it hard. There was a guy leaving the summit and he was the first person I saw on the hike. I stayed on top for about 15 minutes checking out the views and I decided to head over to bag Red Butte and pick up some more miles because my knee was feeling good.

I ran the ridge over to Red Butte and felt just a tiny bit of soreness in the knee, but nothing serious. I cruised over the ridge and then stopped at the summit for a few minutes to watch an eagle soaring right over the top.

The hike down is steep, so I took it a little slow and then when I got down the the Living Room, which a bunch of furniture made of rocks, I took the trail that heads left down into drainage. Jun and I had run this the last time we were there and it was fun. I ran the whole way down and made decent time. I passed a few hikers coming up and then once I was down I ran on the BST back to the car. I did stop the last 1/4 mile to walk because I didn't want to push it too hard.

This is just what I needed today. Total time: 2:15

Crazy day, but fun. Did yard work, but also made it over to the gym with the kids for a few hours at the pool, and also mixed in some TM miles. Yeah for sun!
