Last week’s workouts saw two epic sunrises, two days in the gym and two days of yoga in the studio. There was also another 10K race. That makes two 10K’s in two weeks.
I’m going with the two theme and thinking it takes two to make a thing go right.

It took awhile for me to get into the flow of this run. My legs were dead from Monday’s strength work. At least there was a gorgeous sunrise!

52 minutes trail running with Julie
We ran into a strange dude on the trails. We could see his headlamp up ahead. When we got near him, we found him on the ground doing fire hydrant drills. I said good morning as we ran past. He said nothing. Wtf? He was breathing quite hard, maybe he didn’t hear me? Or maybe he had headphones in? Regardless, don’t you think he would have said good morning even if he didn’t hear me say it? We were on high alert after that weird encounter.
At least we were treated to a beautiful sunrise when we popped out of the trails into a corn field (first picture). What you can’t see in that pic is the 6 deer munching on the corn up ahead of us.

Beach to Beacon 10K
Another weekend, another 10K. Considering in the previous 7 years, I had only run two other 10K’s, it’s very, very odd. Don’t worry, I’m not running a 10K race next weekend. But I may be doing a 10K trail race in two weeks. I’ll have the full recap up on Wednesday. Here’s what you need to know now – it was humid AF and I surprised myself yet again.
After Saturday’s race, a tendon in my left foot (of course!) was feeling really tight. I’ve been stretching, icing and rolling out my calves in an effort to loosen it up. I had planned on doing an easy recovery run but opted for a 20 mile bike ride instead. It was a beautiful morning by the bay.
It dawned on my yesterday on my drive home from Cape Elizabeth, that fall is quickly approaching. There are a few races that I want to do. Do I want to jump back into the training game again? It’s been fun to run what I want and when I want. But then I think about how well the last two weekends of racing have gone with absolutely ZERO training. I wonder how I could do if I actually trained?
Something to ponder for sure.
