While at the Parents’ house for the weekend, we
stole rescued a Mountain bike that probably hasn’t seen the streets in at least four years. Except that one time in July when D rode it while I ran 12 miles…and last Saturday when he rode it while I finished out 20.
My point being, D & I thought we could show it a little more TLC. So we brought it back to Colorado, where a Mountain Bike can roam free!
Tuesday is my “Cross & Strength Training” day; I wanted to use this bike for some trail exploration, while I also had visions of attacking my legs with lunges.
Combining the two into one workout? No problem!
After discovering that my running trails goes a good 6 miles in one direction ( the most I had run on it was ~3), I turned around and headed towards the Park.
This Stairway to the Rec Center is only a few miles from the house, via trail or road. I’ve hit it in the middle of a run before, but going up once doesn’t really compare to turning around and doing it again, 5 times.
Getting back on wheels after lunges/stair repeats is slightly easier than trekking back on foot. Though, either way, the legs were spent! Mission(s) –Explore + ST – Accomplished.
16 miles, 1:12 + Lunges (set of 20) x 3 + Stairs x 5.
What is your Cross Training activity of choice? Right now, it’s the only day my bike gets a little attention, so I’m sticking with what works!
