Saturday was one of those runs from - well, it stunk. I managed 15, but that's only because I needed to get back to my car. Felt okay until about Mile 4. Had planned on 20 (my max for the day), but realized I needed to adjust down to 18 (my minimum). At Mile 7.50, I finally said enough's enough and headed back down. Ended up walking most of the last 3-3.5 miles. Just nothing there.
This has happened before, and it'll happen again. I took yesterday off (except for washing/waxing my car and helping Shorty get the house ready to paint), and decided to stay in bed this a.m. instead of doing my core/strength training. Coach Gary scheduled a cut back week this week, so hitting bottom couldn't have come at a better time!
Weaver Basin 50k is in about 4 weeks, then I'll be in a well-deserved rest mode.
. . . . I am, however, already looking at races for next year . . . . ;o)
