Day last of family road trip! Twin Falls ID -> home! Stopped in Boise for a delightful brunch with Tom's aunt and partner. Sylvia enjoyed having some run-around-time instead of pure car. Also, aunt makes a mean french toast casserole.

Good to be home. Own bed/crib/playzone. Only 3 days until daycare starts too, eep!

Running 6:14 [1] 0.53 mi (11:46 / mi)

Orienteering 56:25 [2] 4.37 mi (12:55 / mi)

Early, early morning training at Medicine Bow. Really great to have streamers out to be running to and a course that kept me interacting with some of the alder groves. Thanks so so much to Mikell!

Saw a mom and baby moose early on in the course. The baby was adorable - mom bolted away upon my approach, I stopped looked at her and then saw her baby, closer to me. Mom trotted back to baby, which was not very good at walking yet and they wobbled off together. I backed up and went a different way.

Harder to keep pushing the pace without other around today, but did want to make it back before Sylvia woke up to have no milk, so that kept me going. The low light of very early morning made the visibility a bit tougher, so good training!

Running 3:38 [1] 0.37 mi (9:50 / mi)

Laramie, WY -> Twin Falls, ID. One of our longer drives. Now trying to get baby to sleep, which has been rougher with the non-schedule of these days.

Running 46:30 [2] 5.5 mi (8:27 / mi)

Preconference steady around the creak and Platte R. trails. Much, much better than yesterday at lunch time. Kinda nice to have the Strava segments to motivate a quicker pace here and there.

Running tempo 40:52 [3] 5.2 mi (7:52 / mi)

Oof, rough one. Tom and I are relay babysitting and conference attending. So workout during the lunchbreak, but it was HOT. (High as 90, not sure exactly what temp it was at 1:30pm when I went out).

Did 1 x 12 min tempo and attempted a second, but quite at 8 min when I was feeling crappy.

Then jogged into the bagel shop for lunch and nearly passed out at the counter. Had to sit there for ~10 min feeling faint and drinking cold water (probably should have been juice, but couldn't bring myself to stand up long enough to go get some after sitting).

Guessing it was a combo of heat, altitude and pushing hard when I'm not yet in the shape I kinda expect myself to be. (Tempo pace on Strava looks like 6.40 ish).

Baby's first national park! Arches, which neither Tom nor I had been to either. We did two very chill < 1 mi hikes, down Main Street and then around the Windows/Double Arch area. Very neat, would love to go back and do some longer hikes! Was our first time in the framed baby carrier. Sylvia seemed a happy camper and it was relatively comfy for carrying however much she weighs these days.

Then drove to Denver. I-70 reaches 11,100 ft at one point and it was pouring rain. Not super fun driving (chains destroy roads), but sure it's beautiful if you can see more than 50 ft.
