Training 12/26 - 1/1

Um, yeah, training...yeah...um...

This week was supposed to be a step back week, but not nearly this much of a step back. Long story short: I'm sick. I only managed to log 15.5 miles. The only decent run of this week was a snowshoe "run" on Tuesday in the fresh snow. The rest were garbage miles or no miles. *grumble*

However, this week, I did go over 1500 miles for the year. Not a lot for a lot of people, but a significant jump for me from 2008 (1053) and 2009 (1118). And, since I probably didn't run 500 miles combined from 1998 - 2007, I'll take it. That being said, I planning on even more in 2011.

And, I guess that's my wrap up post for 2010. The way I'm thinking about my training right now, I'm not really looking back. I have ALOT of work to do, so I'm focused on the year ahead. (Of course, it would be nice if I could shake this damn cold/plague and actually train.) I posted my race schedule (so far) at right, and I hope to add to it. As I mentioned, the Gator Trail 50k is my focus right now, and I'm already signed up for MDI in the fall. I'm not certain how I'm going to approach MDI yet: whether it will be a fun run or a goal race. I'll make this decision as I get into the summer, which will be informed by my spring "endeavors," which will be decided based on my results/recovery from Gator Trail, which will be determined by my training. Like I said, I better shake this cold...

Duyan and I are running the Tahoe Rim Trail 50 mile, Laurie and Duyan's girlfriend will probably run at least 50k, it will be my first race since June of 09. You should come out and run. We can make the logistics pretty easy on this end. Registration opened today and it is filling very fast. Don't be a puss - Tony

Duyan still exists? TRT 50 is on my "races to do" list, but I don't want to travel all that way for my first 50M. I'd rather keep it closer to home to keep logistics to a minimum. Plus, practically, we can't get that much time off from work in July. I thought you retired after your WS buckle? Or, has it just taken you that long to recover?
