The pooch and I got in a nice, but sticky 5 mile trail run.
QOTD: Yes, but my goal is only to have fun and run frequently and on nice trails.
Leading a hike later tonight, and hoping fr a brief run or ride beforehand. Let's see how those muscles are doing post the 50-miler Sunday!
Sorry to all those who are suffering through the heat/humidity.
Boooring 7-mile jog on bike paths by the Bay. Bonked pretty hard halfway in. Running the day after a major weight session requires more fuel right before the run.
3/8 Way Too Cool 50k WNS
4/19 Tehama Wildflowers 50k
running under the BigSky
got an early morning run, a little short at 3-ish, but some decent elevation gain; it's cooling off great at night-low 50's, but climbs into the 90's in the afternoon evening- so it's early or a sufferfest
qotd: up to recently (moving/new job) pretty close, this last couple of weeks have taken a hit, but hopefully will get back into full swing soon
“Every morning in Africa, a gazelle wakes up, it knows it must outrun the fastest lion or it will be killed. Every morning in Africa, a lion wakes up. It knows it must run faster than the slowest gazelle, or it will starve. It doesn't matter whether you're the lion or a gazelle-when the sun comes up, you'd better be running.”
I think I have finally caught up from my sleep-deprived weekend. Sunday was a SRD, and Monday I did an hour on the stair climber (it sucked being on that machine after the mountains over the weekend.) Today I did 5 miles after work. It wasn't too bad temperature-wise because we had a few thunderstorms roll though and is was still raining a bit, but it was about a billion % humidity.
qotd: I started out the year with a setback but I have been doing ok since the tendonitis in my ankle healed up. 4 more weeks until Leadville.
