The Rest Month

I survived. One rest month complete. Since the 6 Inch Trail Marathon, my weekly totals were 50k, 70k (the one that started to get away on me), 48k, and 51k. I found it a little easier to keep the mileage down this past week, as I was in a retreat and could only run from 1 PM - 2.30 PM, during peak heat. 8k of trails was a monumental effort and I found myself several times cowering in a patch of shade, trying to cajole myself into moving on.

I'm still sorting out a few niggles with all the experts, but nothing has been holding back my running at this point.

This week I'll be sitting down to finish hammering out the 2011 race calendar (as much as one can ever predict the future). I've got a template built and it's getting close. I'm very excited!
