Next Saturday is Palo Duro Canyon 50K.
We leave early Friday morning; I’m looking forward to the car ride with friends almost as much as the actual race. Sunday, Stephanie, Marcia, and I ran on the Barton Creek greenbelt starting from Zilker Park. I told myself I wouldn’t run for more than 2 hours but I got sucked into it…the weather was cool, we were chatting and hitting a good pace, and I felt great. Looked down around Sculpture Falls to see that my run time was at 1:20. Oops! I turned around and had a negative split coming back. Afterward, we stood in Barton Creek and soaked, talking up the trip details.
Man, that was a good morning!
I had been afraid I was going to be totally depleted after Longhorn Half Ironman but it looks like I’m good (though I will still take it easy this week and focus on nutrition, sleep, and hydration, throwing in some short workouts with higher intensity).
