I haven’t posted in… ages. I don’t even know how long it’s been. Probably the Bigfoot 50k in December. But that’s because (a) I’ve been busy and (b) I’m ashamed to say I haven’t been running much. I see now that I never really got back into stride after the 50M in September. I was still running, but it was fairly sporadic and not focused on anything. Even over break, I climbed a lot more than I ran – which is fine, since climbing is so awesome. But I ran about 13.5 yesterday for the first time in ages and BAM. All ultra motivation has returned. (That and talking to Jonathan at Running Gear in Brighton. He gave me free Balegas! Woo! Everyone go to Running Gear!) My current/hopeful plan is to run 1.5-2+ hours Tuesday thru Saturday, do a long run Sunday, and take Monday as a rest/climbing day. With that, I can easily get 80+ miles/wk. I still need to actually register for my 100… not sure if I should go ahead and try to tackle Bryce Canyon in May, or if I should do Burning River (point-to-point in Ohio… in July), which has a good rep for a first 100. But… I’ll also be trekking out to Colorado for the summer in May, so maybe I can just go out for Bryce and stay out west… no complaints there! Plus some 50ks before and hopefully a 50M in March.
I’ll start posting again, now that I have immediate training plans and whatnot. Hopefully this semester won’t be too crazy. (I’m so ready to be done with college.) In the meantime, have a sandwich!
Delicious sandwich for lunch. Whole wheat toast, hummus, plain and poupon mustards, tofurkey, tomato, mushrooms, onions, cucumbers, two layers of mashed/spread avocado, salt, pepper, Italian seasonings, garlic, and a dash of Tony’s creole seasoning. So good.
peace love and running!
