    In other news, my upcoming 50k was cancelled due to permitting.

    I'm a little disappointed but there was no guarantee that my ankle would be fully healed in time so I'm not completely heartbroken.

    My "taper week" shall henceforth be known as"lazy pizza week" [​IMG]

    Yea, there are a couple short steep hills and one ass kicker a bit over a mile at around 22 miles or so into things. It really is a great course and set up nicely.

    That sucks. You had some good training and elevation runs going on. You could find one in early to mid Sept and redo the last 6-8 weeks of your training plan. Lots of ultras to choose from in that month.

    Blahspam - Sad to hear your 50K was cancelled.

    Got in 8.5 miles this morning. Felt pretty good this morning keeping the pace up.

    Quote: I'm racing Bulldog 50k in late August so the cancellation gives me more time to prepare for that one I guess.

    10 this morning with middle 8 at my half race pace. I'm kinda just guessing at that since I haven't raced a half since October of last year. I was pleased that my last mile at race pace was my fastest, both because it came at the end and it included the only real hill on that route.

    Keep forgetting to post here... Ran 6.5 trail miles yesterday. Today was a track workout: main set of 8x400 at a fair quick pace (I Pace for those who are familiar with the V-Dot system). My fastest rep (last one) was 1:20.5, which is probably my fastest 400 since high school, and only seven seconds off my PR. 4 miles total today.

    4.6 easy miles today in my new New Balance 890's. Below is my collection of 890's but is missing a few pairs I have gotten rid of. The new v4's which were completely redesigned from the prior versions are the bottom left in World Cup winning Germany's colors.

    5.4 slow, easy miles this morning. The temps were in the low 50s. After our epically long and cold winter, we have really been blessed with great running weather since then.

    5 miles this morning. There were some torrential downpours last night which made for extremely muggy and humid running weather, even at 5:30am, but I still managed to keep a pretty good pace throughout

    Late hours at work made me decide I needed the sleep more than a run this morning.

    Having some achilles heel problems. Stiff in the morning. I've stopped following my 10k schedule for now. Will (hopefully) pick that up after the vacation. Any tips?

    9.6 miles this morning with two 3 mile intervals below 8 minutes/mile each.

    I ran past a massive 1920s Tudor house with about 5 acres of property and a gigantic stone wall all the way around the property and a gatehouse that looks larger than 2 of my houses combined and got curious as to who owns it. I looked it up in the public property tax records thinking maybe it was somebody I had heard of (locally famous lawyer or doctor, or maybe the head of some big company) but I didn't recognize the name. A quick search on the Googles shows me that the guy was an inventor with a patent for a "football helmet-shaped barbecue grill". I would have never guessed there was so much money to be made in novelty cooking devices.
