Yesterday was the first day in a week I could consider myself mostly healthy. A bit of congestion and slight weakness in the body but overall I'll take it. 20 mile run yesterday in a decent time. After the run I went and bought some goodies for the Della Santa...
|If one can love an inanimate object, then it is I with certain style road bikes.|
|Next purchase will be a granny gear cog to replace that crit-monster cluster of gears, so I can wobble up mountain passes without exploding a quad.|
I got her a new seat post and saddle. I also found a great deal on a camel back tube to replace the terribly designed one on my new Nathan race vest.
Today I got out for a 12 mile run, looking to spin the legs with some surges. Saw Scott Jurek and Joe Grant as they must have started from the other end of Teller Farms. They seemed to be pushing it a bit when I crossed their path the second time (on my way back).
Now I start winding down, eating well, sleeping, and constant thinking about the race in 12 days. It's 100 miles, so planning splits is ridiculous. But, having splits at Bear worked well for me; kept me focused with small goals of maintaining those splits. I have a few goals in mind, some are time goals and others are competition goals. The main one is to finish, of course!
