I am in a weird place. You know the place. The one that brings you to a finish line of one race and almost to the beginning of a new adventure. I have resisted the urge to ramp up my workouts to fast following MMTR two weeks ago. I have taken advantage of getting extra sleep, over eating at times, and probably having a few too many beers (not all at once). Now that is even getting old.
Saturday was my first time being back in the pool in months. The water felt great and I must admit a welcomed refreshing change (1800 meters). I followed it up with an easy 40 minute spin and topped it off with a little time in the sauna. Sunday we ran. We set out on a course Scott mapped out and after a few turns we starting hitting the hills… nice ones, challenging ones and my body felt alive. The air was cold and the sun was bright. I was in heaven for the 13 plus miles that my body was in motion.
So I am diving back into my research and reading in preparation to this next adventure. Race fees are high and entries are limited. Crossing my fingers that I will even get in. Regardless of the outcome I will post the details of what I do know for 2009 on Dec.1st.
Until then I will be keeping up with all of your happenings. Heck I may even post a picture of my new haircut once my stylist straightens out my bang mess . It was worth it because my new shoes ROCK!!
