Workouts – Last Week Today – June 19

picsart_05-01-02.25.10.jpgThis week we wrapped up our Colorado vacation and I got a few runs in once we got back.

While we had a blast in Colorado, I was happy to be home… I missed my fur kids, and I missed my routine.

Here is how this week shook out:

Sunday – Went hiking and site seeing… found a short trail that led up to a waterfall.  It was beautiful.  We also took a very long drive over the Rocky Mountains and the scenery was just incredible. Total steps 9,141.

Total steps 3,928.

Tuesday – We took advantage of the late afternoon flight and headed to grab brunch. When I found how close we were to Voodoo Doughnuts, we had to walk over to there.  Once we got home, we were greeted by 2 very happy pups, the cats didn’t seem to care. Total steps 7,921.

Wednesday – Back to the regular routine.  I was exhausted after work, but still wanted to do something.  Took both dogs for a walk. Total steps 10,358.

Thursday – Easy 3 miler after work (average pace 11:01)… felt great to lace up my running shoes and get out there. Total steps 10,535.

Friday – Rest – Total steps 3,919

Saturday – Easy 4 miler (average pace 11:12). Total steps 14,480.

Total miles = 7

    Sounds like a good week. I’ve never tried Voodoo Donuts but I know they are quite popular!

      Where in Colorado are you going? We have family in the Granby/Grand Lake area. We drove up to the Rocky Mountain National Park one day, that was a lot of fun. There are a lot of places to hike and you can see some wildlife from the road as well.

    It sounds like a lovely trip. I’ve been to Colorado twice: once in winter to snow ski and once in summer for a half marathon. It is beautiful there. It’s difficult to imagine there can be snow in the Rockies as hot as it is here. Getting back to a regular routine it so difficult for me. It looks like you did a great job of that. Thanks for linking with us Vicki.

      It was amazing that when we left Granby (lower down on the mountain) it was in the 70s and when we got to the top (not too many miles away) it was in the 50s.

    Wow, several bloggers I read were in Colorado last week. The scenery certainly is fabulous. I have a hard time being away from my fur kid too. I’ve been away for 6 days and thankfully going home tonight!

    Looks gorgeous! I would love to visit Colorado. And, of course, Voodoo Doughnuts. We have absolutely zero local donut shops around where I live and I crave them.

    I’ve been seeing pictures of Voodoo donuts on Instagram and they make me want to plan a trip to Colorado, ha ha.
