Unexpectedly Pleasant


In my attempt to be true to myself here’s how week 8 of my Mogollon Monster 100 training panned out.

Planned Mileage: 85 Km

Actual Mileage:

Days Run: 5

Excuses:  I had a massage on Monday which left me feeling very wobbly, so Tuesday I only managed 3.5km on a treadmill (boo!).  However Wednesday was better and I managed to run twice, before and after work, but I never managed to catch up my mileage.  C’est la vie.

I got some goodies in the mail on Thursday.

What’s this?

Box 1

Box 2

Free stuff!!!  Well sort of.  Dan and I entered an online competition that required us to upload runs and if you hit a certain distance (100+miles in 30 days) you got free GU stuff.  It was back in March and we both forgot about it so it was a pleasant surprise.

On my Saturday run I had the opportunity to cheer on a couple thousand amazing people who participated to The Ride to Conquer Cancer, it was awesome until I realised I couldn’t get across the street to carry on my run.  Thankfully the crowd thinned and I was able to channel my inner “frogger” and get myself safely across the road (and not cause I major bike pile up).

    I meant to say a wise man, but of course where is a wise man when you need one?
