Blah, stressful day yesterday capped by sissy-ing out of an easy scheduled jog left me going to bed looking forward to three solid days of training starting today. I find it more difficult to back out or cut short a workout if I write it for the world (read: 6 people) to read. With that in mind, the plan is:
Today - 12 relaxed miles with NMP ("M" is for modest, I'm guessing)
Saturday - 24 miles or 3.5-4 hours, race simulation (probably laps around walker ranch)
Sunday - 2.5 hour progression run, should end up being 20 miles
Next weekend (March 5 and/or 6) I'm thinking up some sort of nutty long run of apx 6 hours if anyone is interested in joining in some or all of it.
On the sweet potato front...
I half baked (insert dumb comment) the ST and added a bit of sea salt. Raw was too much but half steamed or baked and they're actually pretty good. Co-workers are certain I'm crazy and I have resigned myself into acknowledgment and general agreement that they may be onto something.
