Tuesday, 02/28/12 LoBo Run

8 miles/58:43/142 vert./7:20 pace/avg. HR 148  Garmin Data

Eager to run before the predicted 70-80 mph winds (that have still yet to materialize), I got out mid-morning for a flat run from work.  Headed toward Niwot on the LoBo Trail, cut left off of 83rd onto Niwot Meadows Farm Rd. and then picked up a new (but still "closed") dirt path that generally headed East.  Was running somewhat mellow and getting near my turnaround time (had to get back to a meeting) and was hoping the new trail went all the way through to 95th so I could make a loop.  The trail finally ended and I would have had to add distance by going S. to Niwot Rd. through the high school grounds, or trespass a direct line across a farm (still tempting).  Decided to play it on the safe side and just backtrack, so I picked up the effort a bit to be sure I had enough time to shower and re-group.  Still was a fairly moderate run.
