Summer Update


So it as been almost a month since I have posted on my blog.  After many e-mails from people wondering if I had run off the edge of the earth, or if I was lying on some trail some where still waiting for help to come I decided that I should post something.  My training has been going well.  I am not biking as much as I should be but I think some changes to my fueling strategy are paying off overall.  Lately the bike has simply seemed boring to me.  I guess that is the plus side of running where you are able to try different trails and paths without having to worry if the uneven surface is going to wreck your bike tires.  My long runs in preparation for my upcoming events are now up to 22 miles.  I completed a 22 miler last Saturday, still in bewilderment that I did, and in two weeks I have a 24 mile run scheduled.  The month of August is going to be a crazy month full of events so I will do my best to keep the results and race stories posted.  This weekend is the Steelhead Triathlon on Saturday and then the Craig Greenfield Duathlon on Sunday.  Then later this month is the Nike Hood to Coast Relay in Oregon and the Rock and Roll Half Marathon in Virginia Beach.  August is going to be a fun month of events to see where I truly am at physically.  A nice long month of tests.  Depending on how this month goes I am even flirting with the idea of hushing a few certain fellow runners that are “encouraging” me to run a 50K in September and give it a try.  I guess we will all have to wait and see.
