I actually had to take a break from running to help my husband post surgery (nothing too serious). I should be able to get back at it starting tomorrow. I'm a little nervous cause it will basically be like starting over again, and I just signed up for a difficult 50k trail run in July.
My goal is to 1) Finish alive 2) Finish by the 9 hour cut off
Saturday I get to check out one loop of the race course for the first time (about 11 miles). We plan to walk the hills and run the downhills and flats. I should get a better sense of whether I'll be able to complete the 50k after that. Then I'm off to Colorado for a week.
Did one loop of the race course yesterday. It was tough in parts, and I wiped out twice. I'm not sure if I'll be ready to do 3 of these by July, but I'm going to still try. A friend mapped the run with his Garmin: http://connect.garmin.com/activity/179794498
Well except for the rib pain that I have from wiping out, I guess I held up ok. Spent last week in Colorado (half business, half vacation) and did a mix of treadmill running/walking during the week. Saturday I walked (mostly)/ran the Mesa Trail (13.4 miles total) in Boulder: http://www.protrails.com/trails/view/20 ... mesa_trail
I fell again, but just once this time. I didn't do much for the few days after due to traveling in a car back home and rib pain. Hiked a hilly part of the Wyco Trail (race loop) for about 45 minutes last night. Walked/ran (on pavement unfortunately) 9 miles tonight. Scheduled to run Wyco Trail again on Sunday. We'll see how it goes...
