I was seriously beat up and sore after Baer Canyon. Extreme DOMS – delayed onset muscle soreness. So much in fact that I I didn’t run again for 2 weeks. And, after that, I only did bike rides for the next 3 weeks, here, here, and here.
I think part of the problem was that I was using OLD trail shoes from years before. In any case – I did see some pretty sites out in the Farmington Bay Waterfowl Management Area.
3 minutes later I was engulfed in clouds of bugs – seriously couldn’t breath. I had to just put my head down and ride blind. That worked well until I glanced up to see that I was about to run into a deer.
