I felt pretty good this week following the adventure at Brooks Falls. Tuesday was the most painful with a general quad revolt if I sat still too long. The treadmill jog that day felt pretty good.  I traveled on Wednesday but was able to take a walking-pace stroll at the hotel in Vegas by Thursday evening.

Ended the week with some Base jaunts in the snow-covered and mud-soaked trails around VC. Our first big snow came with the storm that followed us home from Brooks Falls. Several inches remain in the shaded areas while the sunny spots have melted to Comstock goo.  I purchased the the Cross-lites in November with these conditions in mind, and finally I'm putting them to good use. Their traction in the mixed-wet conditions simply can't be beat.

Looking forward to ramping up again next week. I believe I followed a much smarter recovery session than I practiced after Firetrails; let's see if it pays off.
