Somewhat Caught Up

Okay so I’ve somewhat caught up. Well at least my race reports have been posted. I still have to upload some photos to Flickr and add their links but it’s a start. As for my running since Oct 18th, I’ve been trying to stay on top of my training. Did I mention I’m off to Vegas in less then a month. Time flys when you are having fun.

My training is going okay. I’ve missed a few runs thanks to my flu and the occasionally lack of motivation but I’ll be ready. I’m still not confident I can finish in my hopeful goal of 3 hours. It’s gonna be close or maybe not at all. I so want to beat my friend Mark across the finish line. He’s running the full and plans to finish under 3 hours.

My friend, Jessica from Edmonton that is heading down there with me has been training hard and from the training times she has been posting she is gonna be fast. I’d almost bet she will beat me across the line by half an hour. Wow!

I’ve made it up to 15.5k for my longest run and hope to do at least one 18k run before the race. I’ve got another XC trail race this weekend so I plan to delay my long run until Monday. Oh yeah, I’m on vacation all next week. Yipee! The plan is to catch up on some housework, some training and maybe get the living room flooring replaced. The carpet really has to go…lol.

I hope all is well with everyone and that you are staying healthy. Keep on Running!!!
