I had a good weekend of running last weekend with two 3 hour outings. Then took four straight days off for no real reason other than work was hectic and other stuff going on. It's probably not bad to rest up before I tear into a 6 week cycle of heavy training, so no biggie. I'm not a slave to running and don't get too bent out of shape about taking a day off (or four). I really like the training I've fallen into this year of few number of runs but big miles/climb on those runs. I feel much stronger on runs the last month than I have in at least four years.
I was supposed to head up to Brainard Lake today for 26 miles with a crazy fast and strong girl. I figured she just stood me up, so I did my run locally this morning. Then I had a couple of texts from her when I got back saying she ended up running alone because she didn't hear from me when she texted to confirm last night. I confirmed, texted again this morning and left a vmail. Way to go AT&T. The most worthless carrier I've ever encountered. If I wasn't so attached to my iPhone...
Anyway, looking to scamper up Green, Bear, South Boulder peaks tomorrow along with 8 or so miles on Mesa if anyone's interested. Just assume I'm starting at 7am - don't wait for a text from me!
