Getting harder to get put there for that long run.

It is getting harder to get that long run in on the weekends. As it is still getting dark way to early still for my tast to run around the lake. I've just pissed-off to many people to go around there at night alone being so dark. My knees are still coming around from being in the 950 and 750 mile pair of shoes. I need to get 20 miles in tonight but I might settle for 15 to 18 miles. I hate settling. As we will see getting out of work at 5pm home a planned 5:30 and on the road at quarter till. A good 20 hopefully. 2 finish lines and no quitting lines in a race.

An off day for the knee's

I believe that it was a better idea to go to work. The knee's are just to stiff and the P/T work is best to get them streched out before I blow them out. It just seems much more of a wait and see what the legs will give me. Though once I do get moving I am good. I will be just a little carefull untill the 100 miler at the race. I don't know going by the schedule or just going for all around endurance which is better. As far as yet I'd say it's the endurance side I'm going for. We will see. Also do not ever say never or can't because you have already set your mind to fail. My N/C that I proved her wrong was 9:38:20.

Getting ready for another

It has been awhile trying to get ready for the race in April. Needing to get some miles in I have ran in weather I might not have run that much in before. 200 in January and 100 for February so far not to bad of a start but needs to pick up in a hurry. Beyond falling asleep at the computer and running, plus 2 jobs AGAIN plus honeydews at the house. Back off 3 day wk week since 1/5, still did not help this ship from sinking. Free state has opened registration just need to get the form off. This time the knee's are really giving fits and just the aches and pains. Being on buckeyeoutdoors and the daily mile I just keep trying to keep ahead of everyone else. I just can't keep from being competitive and blowing the schedule. So far this week I've got 36 miles under the belt and can hopefully keep it going. The days are getting shorter to April 25th and with the nerves from every other day just doesn't mix with nerves for a race 13 miles longer than the last. With more than I have gone before. Because before 10/11/08 I never ran more than a 10k race.
50 mile---check 9:38:20
100k-----in process
100 mile--in process
As I say there are only 2 finish lines at a race both are real, because there is no quitting line!
