I'm a single Mom.  I work all night as a Paramedic and chase my two daughters all day so I don't sleep.  I miss when I could just go out and run every day. It will happen again.  I'm retiring at 50 with my public service pension.  11 more years and Mama is gonna rest.

9 ez in the warm afternoon except for a few parts where some good songs were playing.  30 minutes never ending stairs after.  feeling pretty good.  Pretty sure I am pitching Rocky Racoon and going for Bandera 100k instead.

At 4am at work we started a workout.   Between the wall handstands, dragon crawls, and frog jumps it was killing me. I was not sad when it got cut short by a call....nevertheless, was  a little sore this afternoon from it and the workout the morning before, so ran super duper easy this afternoon by Vanessa's school.

another ez run by Vanessa's school .  holding out on "training" until November.  Bandera 100k--usatf trail championship is the goal on January 10th.  I have no idea how to train for it...but it will probably involve lots of never ending stairs, quad thrashing downhills on the treadmill, and whatever else I can fit it on my schedule.  I'm torn on on speed/tempo...I prolly should, at least once a week.

2 ez with Mom on rails to trails, then 9 more on my own--4 easy plus 5 moderate, which were a little uncomfortable in 80 degrees.  I definitely still need a week of easy running and recovery before starting training in November.  I can't train for technical trail, but, I can spend some time on singletrack and can train for going up n down.  I'm going to do treadmill simulations with hard steep ups and quad thrashing long downhills.   Time to pull up the course elevation map and see what I can cook up for November and December.

1 mile during our 5am workout at work.  We did lots of shoulder and quad killing stuff.  Wall stands, divebomber pushups, weighted arm circles, windmills, step ups, frog jumps, dragon crawls, one-legged squats, bicycles, bunker bag jumps.

at 7am ran 3 ez alone then 7 more with Nancy.  It was so good to catch up!
