Monster week of intensity flowing straight from my race last Friday. Nearly every hill I climbed was uptempo and aggressive. This is usually a key indicator for me- climbing hard and the shins allowing it. A few pretty hot long runs, including a Rapid River run that must have been 75F. Things are happening that I have waited all winter for. It all seems to be driven by power. Once the power is up, the legs seem to be more resilient. Resiliency encourages 2 a days which mean volume is good and around and around we go. 20 days until Leona 50K.
|8 years old, runnin' with a dime in my hand|
To the bus stop to pick up a paper for my Old Man
Sat on his lap, big old Buick, Id steer as we rolled through town
Tassle my hair, say son take a good look around
This is your Hometown. Your Hometown.
|West Fork Rapid River above the McCrea Cabin. Just missed a PR from last fall to the cabin...and I was not trying to run hard at all...very good sign.|
|SCOTT Trainer 2. Why have I not ran in these yet? Easily SCOTT's most comfortable shoe for my foot. Lots of beef and plush upper encourages long runs. Love the colorway. 9.5 oz.|
|New Meadows from Last Chance Ridge (Forest Road 273).|
|New AK pack. Like it a lot- and I don't care for packs.|
