ajw said it best, "it is build up time."
oh he nailed it.
it is time to take a business type approach now. no missing workouts. no skimping on miles run. it is time to put in the homework. afterall, he should know best, he is in education and a former teacher.
i have started my doubles. the long runs on the weekends are starting to come together. maybe my body has adapted to the blood pressure medication. i am still crossing my fingers on this...
oh this is starting to get fun now that the long runs resemble some of my long runs in the past two years. i am just so thankful that i can have relentless forward motion for 5+ hours. something i would have never dreamed of when i ran a few marathons in years past.
i am just going to roll the dice and hope the luck continues.
i hope all your training is going well.
on a side note, i am intreaged by running events like Sustina and Arrowhead. Maybe Arrowhead a little more as i was born in Minnesota. plus, i have been lucky enough to run slow for a long time in 100's. Arrowhead in February for 135 miles, mmmm, that is interesting. i'm going to have to ponder that for a bit. oh, get educated on doing that kind of event also.
it is time to build. i am ready to do that.
have fun, see you on the trail
