And in my own world of racing in 2015, little worried about how the 1/2 will work out in March. The Canyonlands Half Marathon will take place on the 21st of March & then I start my residential on the 22nd. Sounds good right??? So here is my dilemma…. Do I run Saturday & camp in the car until Sunday's check in?? If I choose that option, what do I do w/an extra week of food?? More Coolers??? Or do I run Saturday, Drive Saturday, Pack Up Sunday, & Drive Back to Moab,UT??? How much will that cost??? My other hang up is this….. I will have to leave here by X time to make the shuttle at 7:30am on Saturday. This event still has me hung up. My other thought, to stay true to my training schedule, ride my bike & lay out a course here in GJ & run it on Saturday the 21st. This plan is becoming more appealing because I can add some trail running as well. All of this is coming into play for the Silverton Marathon August 22rd & the bigger picture of a Sub 4hr Lead King 25K race in September. Oh, and sprinkle in all of the MAD Racing events.
My morning routine usually starts w/light stretching, foam rolling, & breakfast w/both dogs. Shadow & I usually take off on our no excuse loop. We come back & I do my core work, foam rolling, & push ups. I check the tires, brakes, & seat post on the commuter & then head out. The afternoon is when I visit my training plan & then I get after it or the Boy Dog & I get after it depending on where I am on the scheduled event of that day. Mr Dave is back at the LetterPress so I am no longer running the Heidelberg Cylinder Press, I only have the floor tile to set down at Orval's Boarding & Grooming, & this frees me up to build miles & clients!!! I didn't realize how much energy it took out of me working 3 jobs, training for the Lead King, & completing my two year practitioners training in Ortho-Bionomy. I would love to ask," What will I do w/all my free time?" But we know that really isn't the case. MAD Racing, Building My Practice, & Training will become more than a full time job!! And that is beautiful!!!
Thanx so much for stopping by, for taking the time to read, for supporting my radio shows, for the encouragement, for the inspiration & more importantly, THANX 4 BEING YOU!!!!!
