Green Mountain

8 miles
2,800 vertical
1hr 27ish minutes

Got out with GZ and Claude. Started from Chautauqua, went up Amphitheater/Saddle/Greenman at an easyish pace, shooting the breeze. ~39up from Gregory TH. It was super humid and socked in, raining a bit in spots. Went down West Ridge and Long Canyon to Gregory. My legs are still feeling it from last weekend, especially when Claude got out front, as he is really a downhill speed demon. The down was way tougher than the up in my opinion.

My recovery this week has been lousy. Sunday and Monday I could barely walk. Tuesday I felt good on the up and terrible on the down. The last two days felt lousy on the up and down. I hope to take it easy for the next few days (hiking or biking), then start fresh next week to get ready for Mt. Evans. I might even set foot on a track.....
