The Runner Who Doesn't Run
Saturday I will be running the Grasslands 50 miler, the 4th in the 50 Mile Texas Style Grand Slam, so I am officially in rest mode. Problem is, I've been in rest mode for a while, really since Cross Timbers. I have a pretty good grasp of planning for a race, putting together a training plan with a build up of mileage and taper, but these races close together have me flummoxed. I was beat going into CT, and now I'm feeling unprepared for Grasslands. I hadn't planned on running a lot these last couple of weeks, but I have hardly run at all. My body is tired and creaky. I should be able to get plenty of sleep this week, since it is spring break, so I don't have to get up early to take the kids to school. Here's hoping for a not-last-place finish on Saturday!
