Lift, Bike, Collapse.................

We started the day at CrossFit Red in Grand Junction, Colorado. Thanks to Patrick for letting us crash his place, pugs and all.

Today was a CrossFit Total, so we joined in as we have not tried a total since early in the new year. Anyway here are the numbers:

Back squat: 170#
Press: 80# Back to where it was before the shoulder injury :-)
Deadlift: 245# PR!
Total: 495# Last Time Jan 1st 460#

Back Squat: 335#
Press: 165#
Deadlift: 404# PR!
Total: 904# Last Time Jan 1st 805#

I guess we can say for certain that strength bias works!

Then we had to work out what to do with the girls while we rode. Turned out Patrick has a friend in Fruita who owns one of the bike shops there, Single Tracks. We headed there and Chris, the owner, recommended a local kennel, Soap Creek Kennels, for the girls. It worked out great, we dropped the girls, picked up a couple of rental bikes (GT Force) and headed for the 18 Road Trails in Fruita.

Donna and I both felt the effects of the heat and the altitude (about 1000 feet higher than what we are used to). That said we hit some great trails; Chutes and Ladders, Kessel Run, Front Edge and Zippety Doo Daa.

A local and some scenery

Donna rocks Kessel Run
Now we are sitting back enjoying a Fat Tire beer (sorry breaking with the paleo beer for tonight) and reminising about meeting here in Fruita 4 years ago!
For those in rainy Boston this is what blue sky looks like :-)
The girls would like a recliner and eating paleo on the road ditch the bun and cheese
