What a mess this week. No camping this weekend. No 20 mile run at noon today. Plans have changed….. again. I can not tell you how hard it has been to get this 20 miler in with enough time to work, pick my youngest up from school, get ready for this camping trip to have it canceled last night. Things like this happen though so I make adjustments to my training once again.
Now that we are home for the weekend I will run the 20 miler on the trails with a girlfriend in the morning at a local State Park. This actually is a much better plan and I am already pumped about it. Since we have a 50k trail race event on June 3rd I am more than glad to do as many trail runs as possible. In fact I would prefer trail running over road running any day. After work today I will get a quick, easy 3 to 4 miles in and then relax for the evening. Some pasta, movie with my husband…. Now this is sounded like a pretty good weekend already!
One last note, I had my massage yesterday and it was fantastic. No undiscovered problems hiding in my legs. I have been spending extra time stretching at least two times a day to prevent injury. Who knew that with the combination of a good ice bath and key stretching that I would feel so good? Took me a while to see the importance but I got it!!
