Legs and lungs are screaming, but for good reason
I've got a little work left to do to get myself into what I consider mountain shape. I have been getting in 2 miles a day and running the stands (aka snakes) at the football stadium. I'm almost ready to go 3 miles at a time again. Getting there! The Backyarder Camp will be in Colorado come this July for some well deserved fun time. I have big dreams I'm chasing on this go round'...
One of them is to make it up the Manitou Incline under 45 minutes. I think that would be a good time to try for considering what the Incline is.
The next mission will be to hump it out up to Barr Camp on Barr Trail, going up the trail to Pike's Peak. I know I cannot make it to the summit of Pike's Peak. I'm not dumb. But, I'm fairly sure of my abilities in that I can make it to the Barr Camp.
There are many other trails that are close to where we are staying and I intend to make several of those as well.
I cannot wait to get there. It'll be nice to get a break from this damned Texas humidity. We will go and we will conquer.
