Week 16 training. We are now in the month that precedes the month in which I will run my ill-conceived 100 K. Highlights of the week included spending time with family and driving to the magical land of 14ers. The crappiest part of the training week was a long run attempt in 90+ degree heat and semi-failing. Twice!
Week 15 training complete. My “worst” week of training so far (aka, not much running) – but half the week was spent in Utah (hooray!) and two days were spent flying home and participating in my best friend’s wedding (hooray!). Lots of fun stuff this month, it’s been a blur.
Week 14 training complete – 46 miles total. Including a 20 mile trail long run and a trip to Utah for the holiday weekend!
Alcatraz Canyon is a great full day, intermediate canyon in Robber’s Roost, Utah. Featuring fun rappels with big views, and beautiful, challenging narrows.
Week 13 in training and 40 miles complete. Highs: back-to-back long runs (one being a trail run!!), a summer-ish BBQ, and Taco Tuesday. Lows: Chris Cornell died.
Week 12 training was a pull back week! I like those. A trail run, a trip home to the DC area, my friend’s bridal shower, and a visit to my mom’s new home. And 28 miles for the week.
Week 11 of training complete: traveling back from New Orleans, 33 miles of running, and a real crappy end to the work week.
A whirlwind 72 hours in New Orleans for my friend’s bachelorette party. Highlights include beignets, a swamp tour, jazz everywhere, and the ridiculousness of Bourbon Street.
