The views LT marathon will have to offer. Beautiful
Okay, y’all. Life threw me off my schedule again: going back to school schedule threw me off, it was seriously hot & humid, personal stuff (that sucked a lot out of me), I can’t get out of bed that early to go for a run… and on. Blah, blah, blah. My mind & body is the one that’s gonna hurt from it, if I don’t really haul some *ss, when I run 26.2 miles at a 6,000 elevation level at the end of 3 more weeks! Eek! (coming up so quickly)
Hopefully those Zombies will help motivate me (hint: as to date for the next training post, the zombies are very motivating!)
Song of the Week: I’ve been stuck in my old school music lately. I bring you Beastie Boys, Intergalactic. It works really well with Radio Mode on my Zombies game.
Monday: day off.
Tuesday – Thurday: none.
Friday: day off.
Saturday: I was really hoping the running group was running long. but they have their marathon coming up next weekend. So it was a shorter distance. Yet we were hauling race pace in 89% humidity at 90 degree weather. It hurt. The humidity sucked the air out of my lungs. But I did good. – 4.31 miles
Sunday: Coffee walk with my girlfriend – 3.4 miles
Total Miles: 7.71 miles
It’s not the 20+ I should be doing. But I am glad I still got some mileage in during the week.
And at the end of week 15 is when this shindig takes place! Uh-oh.
Add to that, the smoke from the massive Rim Fire in Yosemite National Park, which has been effecting Tahoe’s air quality (badly), almost cancelled the LTM. But the say by Sept 20, the fire should be 100% done. Thank you to all the service people who put their lives on the front line for mother nature!
Question: Best race you done to date? Or favorite place to get outdoors?
