50,000 Miles Later
The Greatest of All Time
I'm running somewhere tomorrow. It's going to be beautiful. I can't wait.
The Logic of Long Distance
Thunder, may I just say that you are full of pearls of wisdom.
See, I never know if you're serious or not. But there is no smiley face...and obviously you haven't checked the mini swamp yet...or you may not call me so wise!
I would say that's too much too soon. (Meaning 17 miles of the Hills in the park...not the 17 miles) Just my thoughts. The hills out there are going to beat you up. You need to do some hill work in prep, but you don't need to be doing all or most of your long runs at the park. You want to make sure that you make it to the start of the race feeling good and healthy...because you won't at the finish! I will most likely do the 11.2 + 5.8 at some point...but I won't be doing it in September. One thing I did on my long run the other weekend was do an easy 10 somewhere flat that leads into the park, and then I added on another 6 in the park on those hill. So I feel like I got the benifit of running some hills while being tired, but only had 6 miles worth of real pounding on my legs. I'm thinking that's the best of both worlds! So maybe you can do the radnor lake run (10ish) and then add on the 5.8 + luke lea or something for your long run on 9/13. I would think that's a better idea. But that's just me.
I knew this is what the swamp mom would say.
Although I don't consider your 10 miles before heading into the park "easy" there were some hills. But I only know that because Casa kept crying about them on our way there.
Well you were running much harder then I was.
Candice, congrats! Globule said you are 2 weeks pregnant!!
Dude, that's not funny. My brother found out his Ex-wife was pregant about 2 weeks AFTER they decided to get divorced. Yes, it was his...and that's a lot to go through during a divorce!
