Going into my first event this year, the Psycho Wyco 50k, I've got some issues going on. My last 3 weeks have all contained 45-50 miles of running, and I've managed a 3 hour run and two 2 hour runs. I've done a bit of speed work, too. However, I really am feeling some lack of motivation running-wise. And I have a feeling (with the forecast calling for mid- to high-30's on Saturday) that I'm going to get beat up pretty good on that relentless 10 mile loop course.
I originally was aiming for a 5 hour finish but am starting to wonder about that goal. I'll probably still go out too fast, though, in hopes of banking some time before the trail turns to mud. Good strategy, eh!?
Work has been up into the 60 hour weeks recently, and more and more planning is underway for the arrival of Lil Baby G--3 months!
More than anything the baby preparations are tiring. Ellie and I are choosing an all-natural approach to the process and the constant questions from family and friends about that are starting to wear on both of us, but we'll manage. Well meaning, but Poorly informed best describes the approach most parents take to the childbirth process. But that's a subject for another post :)
It's gonna be fun this weekend (I keep telling myself that) and I'm looking forward to seeing some old and new friends along the way! By the way, Helen, I think I need a ride from the airport. I'll call you.
Okay, enough of my Monday BLAHS. Back to work.
