Rollin Once Again
All of a sudden there has been one event after another, wine and beer all around, not to mention food. Tough on the training regimen, even for the recreational athlete. BH100 really did a number on me but I'm finally over, took long enough! In the past I've recovered faster from 100s. Speed is mostly back. For some reason I thought I had 2 months till the Headlands Hundred. Wrong! It's only 5 weeks away, got it switched with the Big Kahuna Triathlon. I signed up for the Angel Island 50k being run today. Just giving myself a nice swift kick in the butt to get the long distance training back into play. It's such a small island it will take 6 loops to cover the distance. I don't mind though, it's shaping up to be a sunny weekend and the views of the bay are going to be spectacular. There's 112 runners for the 8k, 99 for the 16k, 84 for the 25k and 51 for the 50k. It will end up being more than that because of race day registrations. It's a small island so it will be quite crowded. It's kind of cool how I'm so excited even if it's just a 50k. Had a hard time sleeping last night. My last dream before I woke up was Wendell telling us to be ready because there was snow and mud on the course. Hahaha. Haven't decided if I'm going to bring my camera. Haven't you guys seen enough of the Bay Area already? Speaking of which here's pics of all the fun things I've been doing outside of training. Been spoiled this past week.
