Post American River 50 Mile week

Monday - rest day... then back to training.  Gold Rush 100k in less than 4 weeks!

Tuesday - Aside from a tender bruise on the bottom of my right foot, nothing hurt, but it was tough to get (and stay) moving.  Ran 4.45 slow miles.

Wednesday - Post AR 50 M fatigue is still with me. 6.65 miles.

Thursday - It was tough to get going again today.  My midweek runs were mentally and physically tough this week. 5.0 miles.  I felt good about getting some midweek running done, in spite of my tired, post-AR50 self.

Friday - rest day

Saturday - I headed out for a long run and wondered how my legs would hold up.  Turned out pretty well. I downloaded The Great Gatsby, by F. Scott Fitzgerald, audio book and headed out.  I toured around Folsom, winding up at Folsom lake where I met Candace, Lucy, and friends.  It was a warm spring day.  I ran straight into the lake and hugged my dog.  16.5 miles

Sunday - Ran 8.1 miles with Lucy.  I felt better today than on any run this week!  Oh, and Lucy and I ran across a turtle who was a little to far from the creek and much to close to the road.  We gave him a lift back home.  Finished The Great Gatsby today.

Weekly Totals: 40.73 miles, 1,975 ft.

Meeting up with the pooches at Folsom Lake.


Be free... watch out for the lab monster.
