Marching On

It's four weeks until Sawtooth and so far the training has been going well. This last week was pretty casual, coming in at around 50 miles. I had a couple of great runs, last weekend six or so of us ran at Murphy and this morning Kurt and I ran 15 down at Lebanon Hills. My legs are feeling great, no aches or pains, and the speed seems to be there too.

I'm getting excited about this one, I think it's been just long enough after Black Hills to have somewhat forgotten the discomfort from running 100 miles. It's going to be fun seeing a lot of familiar faces up there, and I'm hoping to shave a couple of hours off of my time from last year (26:58:01) which I think I should be able to do if the weather permits.

In any case, it's going to be fun. I have one more hard week coming up, starting on Tuesday and a couple of big runs next weekend, made more difficult by the fact that it's also my 20 year high school reunion and I don't think I'll be all that rested for them after gallivanting around all night. I won't exactly be reliving the glory days, high school was fun, but really, I'm having way more fun now.
