Plus One Is…
Today is my last day. An evening tempo out with the crew tonight will mark twenty-one out of twenty-one days in April. Then, for both personal sanity and responsible training reasons, I’m taking a few days off to rest-slash-taper for my half marathon on this upcoming Sunday. I hear there are lots of hills.
I Like Numbers
For curiosity sake I added a couple of extra calculations to my already cumbersome training tracking and logging spreadsheet. These were to sum up all the time and pop out a total time-running on the year. I’ve logged about 425 klicks in about 45 hours in 2015. Too bad those aren’t billable hours.
My calves have been bugging me for the last few days. Not sideline-bugging-me, but after my double-cramp experimental sidewalk smash of last August’s half-marathon, you can’t blame me for being a bit wary. I’ve opted to (a) crank up my hydration another notch and (b) take magnesium supplements. I hate pills, but I hate cramping even more.
I noticed the registration for the 2016 Disney World Marathon weekend featuring the Dopey Challenge opens in about one week. I think we already agreed that 2016 isn’t in the cards, but a re-run is not completely off the table for a year or two later.
A Running Challenge of a Different Sort
Lastly, I’m working on putting together a different sort of running challenge for my group for this summer. We like to post lots of crazy pics to our (invite only) Facebook group, so I thought why not crank up the stakes a little. A photo scavenger hunt… of the kind only runners could do. How is that not gonna be awesome?
