Scott over at Outside PR, sent this video my way...
Watching it made me think of my brother, who wants to join the Ultra Running world, and Lesley @ Racing it Off who has recently been bit by the Ultra Running bug.
62 miles = one long day....
Although the Men's winner finished in a little over 9 hours. Hopefully I finish my 70.3 in less than that, or else that will be a super long day too!
My kitchen is finished with my new faucet & electrical plates in place. I have been dreaming about it since moving in almost 3 years ago, so I am super excited. Now I just need to start saving more money so we can finish the basement (which will NOT be a DIY project, definitely hiring for that one).
I discovered new bruises this morning from last night's pole dancing adventure. I managed to get my butt to the gym, and pump out some awesome speedwork. Even though I've been missing a lot of runs, I feel strong, and feel myself able to push the pace. I haven't needed any "illegal" rest breaks during my speedwork. With a half marathon a week and a half a way, I'm a little worried that I haven't done a long run in a month, but I'll make the best of it & just have fun.
Most of all, I feel like I'm missing Triathlon season! Since having to skip the race April 29, due to my kinesiotaping class, I haven't found another sprint to do before my Olympic June 24 in Litchfield Hills, CT. I'm on the prowl, that I can find one before then!
Would you ever consider Ultra Running?
Have you done a half without doing long runs consistently?
Anyone want to cheer me on in Litchfield Hills?
