The Week In Review:
Visited the Denver Aquarium, doesn't count as a workout, but it certainly exercised awesomeness!
AM- 18 miles up Buffalo Pass Rd, out on the CDT to Long Lake and back on Fish Creek Reservoir jeep road (all part of the 100 course), 3:20, 1,500 ft. This run sucked, I made the slow rocky drive up Buff Pass only to realize I had a total of literally 8 ounces of water in the 5 different water bottles in my car, combine that with 18 miles and temperatures above 80 degrees, and you have yourself a longgg last 5 miles. I guess feeling miserable was very practical practice for the upcoming race...
PM- 10 miles up and down the Spring Creek Trail (both directions are part of the course), 1:30, 2,000 ft
5 miles out and back to Rabbit Ears Pass, 1:00, 800 ft
7 miles up and down Mt Sherman with Luke, Luna, and Luna, 2:00, 3,300 ft
10 miles up the Boulders Trail and down Elk Run with Luna, 1:30, 1,800 ft
Totals: 51 miles, 9 hours 20 minutes, 9,400 ft
|This is what it feels like when I run downhill, except I only have one strand of hair flowing behind me.|
Which brings me to this...
|This is what my "dragon tail" looks like to me....|
|This is what the untrained eye believes it is...|
Either way, will the "hundred mile braid" become extinct after the race?
Only time (and possibly my wife) can tell
