In Life as well as in running the secret is Pace.

a bit off track


When we last "spoke" (so to speak)

It was Mid April…  I'd already run over 100 miles for the month…  training had been unspectacular but quite consistent…

My injuries (Piriformis, ankles) were better despite the heavy training load


That's about where things went a little off track.

On the 19th I had Lasik done…  Doc said no running for a week…


Then on the 25th Judi and I got married….


And on the 26th we started moving

We emptied 2 houses and filled one up with two 24 ft. truckloads of crap… in 26 hours

Next we cleaned the two old houses stem to stern…

Finally we tried to put the new house into some semblance of order

A Process that is still ongoing…



No big deal right?  Everybody needs a some down time…  But it's not that I'm all tapered and rested…  on the contrary…  I'm exhausted.

And…


Well…  my "A" race for the spring…  heck the only race I've signed up for in 6 months is Saturday.


It's a small little ultra on the beach… I guess we'll see

We went for a little run yesterday after work…  and definitely felt like we were in Remedial Running 101…  I even sang the "Welcome Back Kotter" theme song

Holy Cow, you've got so many things happening! Congrats on the marriage and uniting houses. That's terrific! Isn't Lasik awesome? I had it done, and it's one of the best decisions of my life other than giving my heart to the Lord and marrying my wife! :) You're probably done with your race already, but I hope it went well, and I look forward to a race report.
