Day294 weekly run summary

I don’t remember which days my runs were on, so this summary is kind of a joke.

ah Monday. Normally a rest day but it was too good not to use it for a run. Did 26 miles on Memorial day. Wrote a blog about the run to my former high school. It was a hot day.

Tuesday. Short run 14 k. So about 9 miles.

Wed-Friday. Work got busy. Friday put in couple miles. Weather was too humid.

Saturday. Just plain lazy. Watched the shuttle rocket (SpaceX Falcon9 capsule Dragon Demo-2) launched. Ended up it took whole day and didn’t run.

Sunday. out of guilt ran 20 miles. I orginally intended for 26 or more, but started out way too late. Just too much to do to get ready for work again. Great weather though nice cool 65 ish.

GVRAT progress. I reached more than half way. At 380 miles. There are about around 250 more miles, to be considered “finished”. I haven’t run that much in a month, 380 miles! Normally that about how much miles I do for the whole season!

I finally signed up another virtual race and it will take place in Atlanta. I am a bit nervous because it will be my first 100 miles. We have until the end of August to do it. The event itself has a 34 hours limit (yes, it is a 100 mile event).

I am nervous because I am running on an actual real course and it is far from here. I am thinking on the logistic right now, like how do I get myself down to Atlanta.

The curfew and rioting there is not helping. I plan to do it on the July 4th weekend, but nothing is concrete at this point except that I have paid for it already. Hopefully things will calm down a bit.


Moving on

Day 133

I’m itching to run more 50k, so I signed up two of them today that are part of a 3 race series. The next one will be in October (High Bridge Ultra) and is supposed to be flat and easy. It will be on a railroad grade path. The last one in November will be the hardest one.

I think these two will get me ready for the 50 miler.

I also wanted to sign up for the Catoctin Ultra since this one is near me. However, the race is full.
