supposed to be next week, but the Snow to Surf is next week and I will be rather preoccupied
racing this awesome relay with the super ELM crew as a downhill skier no less.
|Wildwood Forest Powerline Trail|
I also am loving the current Top 100 Hits on my Jango Radio app. It's not often that I like listening to the top hits of the season, but I have a mix of new music made up to use from 40-50K when my mind and legs need a boost that includes:
- Happy (Pharrell Williams)
- The Walker (Fitz & the Tantrums)
- Wake Me Up (Avicii)
- Pompeii (Bastille)
- Summer (Calvin Harris)
- Love Me Again (John Newman)
- Counting Stars (One Republic)
- Blurred Lines (Alan Thicke)
- Everything at Once (Lenka)
- Anything by Linkin Park, Meteora
- Several ACDC classics
Broke in my new Mizuno's pretty fast Thurs night in a torrential downpour!
|Summit 1: Queso Grande|
And I can't believe that I haven't mentioned that Sarah has decided to come and race at Sun Mountain with me! So in addition to having my two besties along for the road trip and crewing for me, Sarah will be there running as well. I have no illusions that we will be running together as we will need to each run our own race, but it will be so great to share my first time doing 50K with the person who has seen me through it ALL...and another bestie besides.
|Summit 2: Nekkei Mountain|
|Summit 3: Upper Thirsty Beaver (or somewhere around there) I was quite tired to say the least. This series of 3 shots shows our progressing state of fatigue but we are still smiling!)|
Fuel: 1 Oskri bar, 1 Lara bar, 1 SunRype fruit bar, 1/2 cup mashed potatoes, 1 date, 1 Hammer Gel Blackberry Jet
Notes on Fuel: good on sugars and electrolytes this run!
Post run recovery: Epsom salt bath, compression socks, water, salty snacks, lots of walking and playing baseball with the kids!
Plans for next week: Clean up my diet during taper time, plan our road trip!
