    On Thursday I started off the morning with a 30 minute run for Day 18 of 30 Days of Change. I am not sure of the exact distance as nothing online has information on the campground trails, but my step counter says that it was around 6.4 km. I did that in 31:09, though this does seem a bit fast for that distance.

    Later we didn't get up to much, though again I had a decent step count thanks to all the campsite maintenance. It was also hot so we went for an evening swim later, though I didn't swim much exactly (though more than last time when I went with the family).

    Back in the tent later I did the abs portion of Day 18 of Spartan Trials. I did 70 pushups combined for the two days (30 then 40).

      Awesome campground views and water. Iโ€™d jump right in with my kayak. Best time to visit Vegas for a cool breeze is in Oct. Highs in the 28c. Itโ€™s the hottest in July which averages 40c. Iโ€™m feeling the right now.

        Lovely pictures, that must have been a lovely trip! I want a workout spot like the flat rock near the water for myself, thatโ€™s beautiful!

          Toka Kayaking would be great!

          AnnieW Thanks!

          Tonight we did a level I in Day 36 in 60 Days of Cardio and Day 36 of Hero's Journey. I also added 120 pushups.

            This morning was 60 minutes of cardio for Day 37 of Hero's Journey. I wasn't really looking forward to this one, because we are going through a heat wave at the moment. This is relative of course, and it was only 22 degrees when I left and 25 when I got back. I decided on the 10.2 km route around the nearby lake as it adds up to around an hour, depending on how I feel. My time today was 51:45, my new best for this route, my previous being 53:23. It was not so fun of a run, as I was very hot when I got back, and so I didn't continue for the full hour, but headed to my basement (which is about 15 degrees) to do a cool down walk for the remainder of the 60 minutes. It was also not so fun as they have drained the lake that forms the perimeter of most of this route. This meant that although this is usually a fairly scenic route, that it was instead just like running next to a wide and muddy field with a small stream running through the middle.

            I jokingly told my wife that I would run fast through the sunny parts and slow through the shaded parts, but it seems like I just ran fast overall.

              Is there a very tall blue chair in the forest??? Looks like it on one of the pictures

                Nebulus Yes, there is a short stretch in this park with public art installations. This one is a reference to the man who donated the land to the city for the park, in this case so that people can look out into nature (like would be possible from the elevated chair). The sculpture is called Lyon's View.

                I threw out my back last night in the back yard, playing catch with a frisbee. This is the least aggressive way in which I have ever done this. It is also the first time I have done so since September of 2017, though not nearly as bad this time as previous times, which is probably the case as I am quite a bit lighter than than I was then. So last night's usual schedule was off, and so was most of today. I still spent most of the day lying down, though I still managed 7,000 steps, mostly thanks to a very slow walk with the family later. I also did Foundation Light Day 1 to a level I later, as this program is designed for people recovering from injuries, among others. I will just take this one day at a time for now. Also no pushups until this passes.

                  Back injuries can really put you out of action. Hope it heals up soon.

                            This sounds frustrating. Take care!
