bit of everything

Day 238 I am a bit sleepy so I will try to make this quick. I feel if I don’t write something, I might never get to it. This weekend is everything I want it to be. I totally exhausted myself. I did a 50K on Saturday (the full report will hopefully available some day).… Continue reading bit of everything

Random Friday sort-of

What gave me hard time while running two miles last July, now seemed like nothing at all. I was amazed after running even 16 miles and did not… Continue reading running summary

Should be back in shape

Day 221 I should be back in shape. Not yet at peak condition but should be ready to tackle some hard training this weekend and the next few weekends. I have not put together a solid plan. Actually I prepared one while I was still in Chile in December, but since coming back with 5-6… Continue reading Should be back in shape

Lazy weekend

Day 195 I had a lazy weekend. I did a small 9 miles hike up to Old Rag on Saturday. It took whole day but it was not because the hike was hard but because we had to wait at several times before we could ascend in the crowded section. We might have lost couple… Continue reading Lazy weekend

I will probably the last one until Patagonia. I will be packing tonight once I get home. I have a bit of running to do… Continue reading game on

week7

day 173 I lost track of whether last week was week 7 or 6. It was probably week7. There are about 7 weeks till my 50 miler. I have not trained much last couple of weeks. Running a marathon takes more than a day to recover. I would say maybe even a week. During the… Continue reading week7

Day 171 Guilty pleasure – icecream The weekend wasn’t as intense as I had anticipated. My training fizzled out due to my own undoing. I ran on Friday, but my quad wasn’t healing properly and pain shot out after about 8 or 10 miles. I was going to do 20. Any way, I started the… Continue reading captain log
