One Month to Go

Sans make-up, growing my hair out.
Well it's now about 1 month to go 'till the Skyline to the Sea 50k. Am I on track? I dunno. I think I'll only know when I cross that line a month from now.

The Tuesday Track workout was 1600, 1200, 800, 600, 400 and a 200. Pretty much just what I needed, I think. I got some good leg speed going at the end. I may have been too careful and slow for the 1600 and 1200 though at about an 8min pace for those. I had a lot of gas left after them, so I hit it really hard for the 600 on down.

I took Wednesday off and today I'll do a five miler on the trails, probably Wunderlich. I'm waiting to get in touch with my chiropractor because my sacroiliac joint feels a outta whack. No one is in their office today until 1pm, so I have to wait around.

Tomorrow I'll do a long run. Trails of course!

That contract gig came lookin' for me again. This time no overtime. So I decided to give it a little whirl and make a few extra $$$s for a few weeks at least. So I'll have to push my runs to the very early morning (ugh, yawn!). At least for a little while. I'll start next Tuesday, same day as my oldest starts kindergarten. But I'll start late, after I bring her in and get her settled.

At the very least the extra $$$s will pay for the Halloween costumes that I've already ordered for the kids. Ariel and Snow White. Disney owns our asses.

Our daily trail runs seem so close, it's just a matter of time until we run into each other! We are super-spoiled to have Wunderlich, Huddart, and the Santa Cruz Mtns so close.

At the least I will see you at Skyline! Should be a hoot.
