Stepping out of the 70's

I'm not sure how much of a blogger I will be.  Not a lot of expectations.  I read a few blogs and on occasion felt I might want to pontificate on a few running items.  Most of what I have learned about running is from practicing it on myself.

I have had many experiences in my running life.  Still, there is much I would like to do.  Mainly I enjoy just getting out there and getting a few miles in.  I seem to always be training, but don't always have many goal races ahead.  Most who know me understand I run about three ultras a year.  Sort of gave up the other events.  The work to run fast wasn't that appealing anymore.  Still, I get fired up to train a bit and my next event is the Voyageur 50 mile on July 30th.  The course killed me last year, so this year I want to go back and do a bit better.

Been kicking around doing Superior Sawtooth 100 mile on September 9-10.  I will be 50 on 9/11 and this event really has been on my mind lately.  I will wait to after Voyageur to make a decision.  It looks out right nasty.  My goal would be just to finish.  I have completed one 100 miler, but not to sure I can stay on my feet for approximately 30 hours.

Training wise, I have been around 50 a week.  Did an easy 18 today and would like to get over 2 hours in tomorrow.  I'd like to juice up to about 65, but like most people it looks easy with the pen and paper.

    Next thing you know, you will be wearing spandex, arm panties, and dressed like superman.

    I look forward the future posts. You have forgotten more than most of us ever knew.
