People come here to run the surrounding trails, do stair workouts, and generally people-watch. This morning, a group of Denver Nuggets (our basketball team) were here with their trainer. Those boys are in seriously good shape.
The view from the bottom: also, note the stairs are in the shadow of this picture, and the seats are the wooden planks in the sunshine.
What I did (all activities started from the bottom and went to the top): walked up stairs twice, box jump every other stair (jump up to step, walk up one step, repeat), one-legged step ups on the seats (all your weight on one leg as you step up - switch legs, repeat).
The view from the top halfway through my workout:
(Crews were setting up for the Widespread Panic show tonight)
I don't usually venture to Red Rocks for working out as it's a 35-40 minute drive, even though essentially it is a free gym. Since it's summertime, and I was there with people I could chat with while I killed my legs, I'll be back!
A friend of mine is closing on her first house tomorrow, so I took her (and myself) out to lunch at City O'City. I dream about their breakfast burrito, so I had it even though it was 1:00pm.
Tofu scramble, potatoes, pinto beans, kale (I asked them to add it in), cashew ricotta (on top!) and smothered in green chile. Yes.
The leftovers, which I'll be eating for dinner, as they appear in sunlight.
P.S. My legs are already sore, tomorrow I won't be able to walk. ;)
