Well, my 4 week roadtrip is over. I put 6000 miles on my Tacoma. It seemed to blow by even faster than my fastest 100 miler. So….what do I do now? Shall I run a local race? chill out and wait for the snow to fly?, or look into another 100 miler to try and win 4 this year? My body at the moment says “no”. My mind says “yes”. I should rest right? I”m not really sure I know what “rest” means. I never overtrain, so it’s fair to say I rest plenty.
I am gonna miss the Pinhoti 100. It’ll be interesting to see how a stronger field competes at that one and how low the record can go. It can go quite a bit lower than my 16:42. I slowed down alot when I had a 2 hour lead last year. Needless to say, it’ll likely go down this year, and possibly into the 15’s. There are a few guys in that field that can do it.
JFK is on the radar, Hellgate is on the radar and the NF50 is also on my radar, any suggestions?
What I really can’t wait for is the infamous Luge Run. This year it’s coming back bigger and faster with a section that breaks apart and rejoins, so we can race two at a time. Just wait till the video comes out on that one. All I need now is snow…..but not yet mother nature, I have a few miles left in the Wasatch before it gets buried.
So onward I go, working on recovery from my two recent 100s. Oh yah, I guess I’ll start working on that Honey Do list too, it’s pretty long. to the tile saw…….
And from a sales pitch note: Don’t forget to order up the Speedgoatkarls’ 100 Mile Blend. My famous coffee that creates fast 100 mile runs. I guess that’s my secret. Make it in an Aero Press, every morning I wake up, I brew up a perfect cup and it’s an instant…..ahhhhhhh, that’s so good. Sample it now for a stocking stuffer gift. Now go run!
