I’ve been pretty busy here lately. This busyness has caused me to be a little delinquent on my blog postings. The school year is quickly winding down. I have about 7 days until summer vacation. I am so looking forward to summer. Have big plans of working out and pushing myself. Hopefully I’ll do it under a little better control this time compared to last year. Last summer I worked out too hard and did too many stadium stairs. This caused my quads to ball up and I ran with a greatly reduced stride most of the summer.
Running–I am still running. Tend to vary it up between quick 3 mile runs to slower lower teen miles. Not sure what I am exactly training for right now. I do know a fifty miler is a month and a half away. I am worried about my mileage. It doesn’t seem to increase at the typical pace that I had grown accustomed to. Anyway, I will run the Gusher Gallop this weekend and then take it from there.
Biking–I have become very active with my road bike. I have been riding with a group on Saturdays to help me get trained up for FreeWheel. If you are from Oklahoma then you realize that FreeWheel is a bike tour across Oklahoma. This hard bike training is the reason why I have not ruled out the fifty mile run in July. My biking (cross training) is complimenting my running nicely.
I do plan to take a few pictures this weekend. I am attempting to have the best of both worlds. I am running the Gusher Gallop 5K at 8:00 a.m. and then i’m rushing off to Lake Arcadia to ride 50 miles with the Oklahoma Bicycle Society. If I am running behind, I will have to play catch up but that will be okay as long as I have a map and read it correctly.
That is all for now. Thanks for reading.
