What to do now? The Grand Prix Series was kinda The Thing this year! It was also kinda a bust…well the whole year was. The good thing now though, I am pretty motivated and getting to 100% healthy!
The week after Baystate I took very easy. Most of this had to do with getting ready for the 6 Hour which was held on 10/28. It was the first time in a new location, so I felt like I need to use every moment that week to get ready. I only ran on Tuesday. A super easy 3 miles. I also ran a loop at the 6 hour, plus ran while setting up the course.
The next week, 10/29 to 11/4. I was hoping to get a good transition week going.
10/29- 3 miles upbeat. I just needed to get something in. 657-627-555
10/30- 6 miles pretty easy
10/31- 8.1 mile at TNT. A small Halloween crowd, made for a shorter run.
11/1- 4.1 miles easy
11/2- Super hard trail run...but overall it was a lot of fun. About 6.5 miles
11/3- 6 Miles with Bob Corsi, felt super tired
11/4- Around 8 miles at Big River with a group of 6.
41.7 or so miles for the week.
I am already feeling better this week. I hope it continues
I plan on running the Lil Rhody Runaround on 11/19. It will probably be pretty slow, but hopefully a “fun” race.
After that I foolishly? signed up for a cyclocross race! This is funny on a couple levels.
#1: The reason it came about is Warren Angell tagged me in a post looking for a teammate on a relay team at the event. It is a 20 minute race. While one teammate is riding, the other has to eat a donut…and so on. I have a donut reputation, so I guess I am the man for the job? Our team name is Kreme Filled Squirrel Nuts. The name of the race is Secret Squirrel CX and there are donuts, so I thought that name worked awesome.
I also signed up for the novice race, since I will be there anyway!
#2 funny thing. I don’t own a bike! I need to figure this small detail out by 11/25. EEK!
After that I will make the trip out to Newport for the Annual Almost 10k. I have run it way too many times, so why stop now?
