It has been a very strange week. I have been busy and have gotten a lot done. Just don't ask me what though, I probably don't remember.
Most of this week I have just been super-duper tired. More tired than I can ever remember actually. Post RRR100, physically I think that I took on way less damage than in the past, and have just been super tired instead. I feel about 90% better today though. After waking up it felt like someone turned the lights on in the dark room that I have been living in all week. The joke is I didn't realize it was that dark.
I plan to start running again in a few days, definitely after the weekend. I will run the Golden Leaf Half Marathon with Melissa next weekend and I think that I am actually going to run the Aspen TNT 10k on the 4th of October to see if I have any speed left at all in me. But for the rest of the fall, I plan to keep it on the light side in terms of volume and plan on only 40-50 mile weeks.
Asia is going to the "spa" (boarding kennel) tomorrow and Melissa and I are going to spend the day and tomorrow night in Glenwood sort of as a mini-vacation. Eat, drink, soak, repeat.
Looking forward to putting in for the HR100 lottery and I am even more excited now that there will be 12 more slots for the never started group. I have a suspiscion, which could be wrong, that with people not getting into the lottery from other races that are no longer qualifiers for HR, the pool might shrink some. I will have 16 tickets which doesn't seem like a lot but I guess it is way better than starting with just one.
