How many miles did you run today? - Page 705
I have been resting my knee and doing some cross training of yard work and playing with the dogs. I signed up for another race 3 days after the last 50K (why oh why did I sign up???) but it isn't until March so I have time. Just a little overuse I think and nothing serious as massage and stretching feel great.
Truer words about ultras could not be spoken... I swore after suffering through my last two long distance cycling events that I was going to take some time off from the ultra scene, to train for fun, and to rework myself into a running and cycling machine. What's the first thing I think about at the finish? "What's next?", of course!
I still haven't signed up for anything, but am pondering which 100k or 100 miler to sign up for next year. It will need to be late season, since I haven't been running all that much since my 140.6 triathlon in August. My goal remains to qualify for the Western States lottery.
You know it!
Maybe I'm biased but I will also say that the MCM has the Air Force Marathon soundly beat when it comes to pomp and pagentry:
(It was also nice to see the Ospreys actually in the air instead of crashed in somebody's backyard in Jacksonville, NC)
Still taking some time off to help rehab my "runner's knee" which flares up slightly but wanted to heal it before running again. Just doing spin bike and stretches which are helping. Having a weak quad/thigh area leads to this so I may have to start hitting the gym for some light weights.
