Going Home

for a race.  I've added the Cajun Coyote 100 mile to my list of Most Probable Outcome - DNF.  You can see the full list of Most Probable Outcome - DNF on the sidebar of this blog.

Picking One of Two

My original plan was to run both Grasslands 50 and Hells Hills 50 but it looks like I will only be able to make arrangements to run one of the two.  I have a burning desire to defeat Grasslands (errr just finish) but I also want a WS qualifying time and only HH is on the list.  My desire to one day run WS out weighs my desire to finish Grasslands this year.

101 Post!

Yesterdays post was my 100th post.  I'm not sure that is worthy of noting but I just did.

Week Ending 2.3.13

Monday - Gym - Bench, Press, 30 min stationary bike - legs feeling a little dead so skipped the planned squats.

Tuesday - 45 min stairs

Wednesday - 45 min stairs

Thursday - 24 miles, NB 110

Friday - 45 min stairs

Saturday - zero - My wife had to be out the door by 6:00 am, so that eliminated a morning run.  Then the rest of the day was spent with the kids.

Sunday - 20 miles, NB 101 - didn't make it to the trial and just did this on the bike trail around the community.  The trail is smooth so you can just veg out and grind but there is some nice elevation change, esp. for this part of the country.

Total - 44 miles and 2.25 hour stairs

It was nice to log two 20+ mile runs in the same week but those were my only runs... I guess stair climbing counts as a running like activity and gets the heart rate way up there  but the cadence is different, the tempo is different, the stride, well you see what I am saying.  However, I have fallen in love with grinding vertical and I think that has improved my running.  It will be easier to get out for some random night runs as the weather warms and the days get longer, so some doubles should start popping up again.

Colossians 1:11

Colossians 1:11 - being strengthened with all power according to his glorious might so that you may have great endurance and patience

This is a favorite of mine and I am always seeking great endurance and patience, in all things that I do.
