I took Sunday and Monday off of running to just relax.. I wasn't sore but I felt tired, so I went hiking with the dog instead. Otis just loves to snuffle through the trees and hang out in any water or mud he finds. I wish he could run further so I could bring him on runs but he poops out after 1 mile. We are going to do the Dog n Jog in June but just the 2 mile walk... the Husband said no running and since we're going to wear costumes it's probably for the best.
Tuesday I went out with Ben & Christy and we finished taking down all the signage from the course, a lot of it was already done but we got the rest and picked up some trash along the way too. I think the only runner related trash I found was a gu packet... the cigarette packets and beer cans I'll attribute to non- runners... although I could be wrong!
Yesterday & today I just did a few easy miles on the road, there is a 10K trail race on Saturday so I'll just kinda take it easy till then, I'm going to squeeze in some Pilates tonight and tomorrow and see how things go on Saturday. Dad has already challenged me to another marathon.. this time he wants it on his turf! We're going to do the Discovery Trail Marathon on Sept 1st in Colorado Springs.. he figures he can beat me 'cause I'm not used to the altitude anymore and he trains on that trail pretty much everyday. We'll see! I also told him to put Feb 7th on his calender, I think I'm going to try & shoot for Rocky Raccoon as my 1st 100... (I'm putting it out here so I can't chicken out!). Dad owes me for years of crewing for his ultras so now I'm going to take my revenge! <>
