Day 53!!!

wow time is really flying!! Ran Niagara Ultra this past Saturday and the first half went really well! About 30K in I started getting the worst leg cramps I have ever had in my life and as time went on I wondered if anyone had ever dropped out of a 50K at 45K in! I did make it (substantially over my goal time) eventually. My spirits stayed pretty good throughout and my breathing was good. No digestive issues either so i will take those small victories! I’m running Jerry’s Peachbud 5K tonight with our running clinic and tomorrow it’s back to the grind!

65 Days to go! Well it’s Thursday and I’ve had a pretty good week so far! (In spite of all the rain! :-() Ran 40 km on Monday and felt pretty good- kept a decent pace and didn’t feel ruined after- even put in a solid 7 hours at work that evening! I figure that’s good endurance training right there! Rain 5 easy with our walk-run clinic Tuesday morning and walked 5 that evening. Biked for an hour yesterday, did elliptical at the gym and did some light speedwork for 5. Today I feel quite human so I will run some hills tonight. I’ve been trying to keep my food in check- running 50 miles carrying 10 or 20 pounds less would be great! but the drinking isn’t really falling into place!! who knew??? oh well, I’ll give up broccoli for rum any day! 🙂
