Number 9

Trying to make last minute preparations for Al's run.  I made the decision a couple weeks back there was no way to functionally train for the Glacial Trail 50 mile on October 9th and Al's for September 17th.  Besides, I was just too tired to try and keep the mileage between 50-60, get the long trail run in, and attempt shorter type speed sessions.  So after thinking about it a bit I can to the conclusion, "who cares."  Woody will still love me like a brother regardless of any outcome.  With this wisdom I then figured I would much rather try and sharpen for Al's and let the 50 mile just happen. 

I will say after a couple low mileage weeks my countenance has come around and I feel a bit chipper.  I do wish I would have started the faster stuff 2-3 weeks earlier, but it is what it is.  It is taking a lot more time to bring the ship around.  I feel like I'm motoring (P-funking), but the swatch don't lie.  Some of the changes I've made may have an impact on how I train for the future.  Looking to still run about every day, but incorporate faster stuff.  Let some of the long slow stuff go.

Major kudos to my pals Andrea 17:24 and Dean 17:39 finishes at the Lost Souls 100km this morning.  They needed to break 21:00 to qualify for Western and they blew it away.  They had good wing people in Greg and Mary!  Awesome result.  Best to Greg in the 50km today.
