Blane County Adams Gulch Trail

I had Saturday afternoon all to myself and decided that I needed some trail time near Sun Valley.

I have wanted to do Adams Gulch trail for a while, but last summer, the high water levels had made some of the water crossings where you would have to get wet. So last year, I wussed out and did not do any of that. This year, the water is low and the trees are starting to change color, so with a little encouragement from the Elephants Perch instagram account earlier this year, I decided to hit up this trail.

The directions to the trail posted on the Blane County Rec site was spot on. It was easy to find using the directions posted. Turn on Adams Gulch road from Highway 75. I came from the north.


There was a little road construction on the bridge leading to the trailhead. No biggie. The trailhead was packed with vehicles. This place really is happening!

Got 'er Done

A quicky after work workout at 1:30am! 23 minutes on the elliptical. 15 min on weights. Did quite a few weights to really work my arms. I don't feel weak, but arm work is needed. I didn't do any rows for some reason. Next arm session, I am going to try to lift a little higher. I am on 15lbs for most arms, and I can do 30lbs on triceps, but usually do 25. Downside is that they have dumbbells in 5 pound increments. That is scary, but I guess if I do it, I will have to rep to failure. Then go down to the lower weight to finish my reps. Anyways...

There are usually 2 dudes there when I go in but were not there very long last night. They left before I even got off the elliptical.  Fine by me.

I can take pics of myself in the mirror with only the security camera watching. Slight sweat fest.

Do you ever work out with free weights? It seems all the machines at ghetto renew are upper body related with only 3 for legs and lots of bars with benches. Good arms are nice, but that is not your only body part that needs to be worked. I miss having an adductor and abductor machine.

One good random thing about my day is that I won the Vega Sport goodies from Run To The Finish.
I am pretty excited about this!

What was your workout today?
