Big mileage week

It came together this week, and I somehow keep my composure running on the treadmill all but today.

I had to get out in the balmy 15 degree weather today, but the snow everywhere still slowed things down, and made it hard. Got in 16 though.

66 miles for the week with 8-10 planned tomorrow. Biggest week since..... don't remember. I don't really track mileage, I just try to remember stuff.

Still no decisions on the year, but I can't get the thoughts of Kettle 100 out of my head. I am going to have to pitch that to my wife soon.

I know she won't respond favorably, as her memory of that race is pulling my off at 50k, and watching my body go haywire for 2 days from severe dehydration. I have to convince her that things will be different this year as I am different (stronger and lighter). Think she will buy it?

Of course, there will have to be the build up races...... To many fun races in the spring to choose. Maybe an April 100k will be on the calendar.......

I am celebrating MLK day by brewing beer, a reproduction of one of my best batches from 1 1/2 years ago.

Can't wait.

Nice week! With the shape you're getting into are you sure you want to volunteer at Chippewa?
