How many miles did you run today? - Page 705

If they ran this Tactical Titan course somewhere near me, I'd sign up in a heartbeat (the mud is the reason I always avoid things like the Tough Mudder and Warrior Dash).

Same here, I had been trying to find an obstacle course that didn't have huge mud pits all over the place, so I jumped at the chance to do this "no mud run." I never would have thought about signing up for a Tough Mudder, but I'm doing it with a big group of about 10 friends...all guys I've known for about 20+ years. We don't get a chance to all see each other at the same time as we've gotten older, and we thought it would be something crazy for us all to do together.

Oh, and 4.5 miles today for me. I've been slacking a bit.

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.

4.1 easy miles this am and 4.9 mile tempo run this evening.

Hah, won't be last time either. Ultra's get addictive with the trails, course, destinations, and atmosphere.
Next you'll be thinking "I could do a 50M" and it all just goes downhill from there.

I ran 4 miles at sunset with a couple miles of tempo pace work. I'm trying to get some speed work back in so I can get faster.

Mile 4.0 looked like this:

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.

6.25 hilly miles on my favorite trails, including 1.5 at tempo pace (~7:55/mile).

5.5 miles this morning. The weather at 5:30am is finally starting to cool down making for much better runs
