My goal for 7/1/13 was 1000 miles, and I'm at 963. I'll take it.
Only 97° here in Moab and a five mile work trip left to go, today!

One of the things I like about running, is the immediate gratification.

I ran 11 miles the 23rd, first double digit since March and my body was freaking out for the next 30 hours.

Ran 12 yesterday, one week later, and it went down nice and clean. Yardwork after.

Oh yeah, 50 miles in about 3:50. I feel much better than I did on Monday after a 42 miler. I even had some juice left in the final 10 mi.

So, this century ride is on Saturday 7/20. I'm thinking I want to push my mileage up to at least 75 mi. If I can get at least 2 of those in before the event, I shouldn't suffer too bad on century.

Question: How many days rest should I get between my last long training ride and the main event?

I'm thinking 2 or 3.

Any insight would be appreciated.

i love chopping wood.
that's my digs.
i hate running.
but i'll go bust through 20 rounds
in a sesh,
especially satisfying in these heat waves.
my wood crib is bulging,
and winter is still months off.

I'm impressed with you runners, my Mom was a fan for over 60 years before she stopped.

Osgood–Schlatter disease made me hate the sport at a young age and I've never got over it, so I started cycling and got over it.

How come you never see runners smile?

Oh sure they smile when they stop running but never during, always that painful expression.

I pass cyclists, rollerbladers. skaters, we're all smiling, runners look like they are passing a gallstone.

Running = Joy most days.

Now I am hyperventilating. Why? Beacause I went down to the locker room for my mid-day run and discovered that I forgot to pack shorts. Now the whole staff has to suffer because I did not get my prescribed stress relief run yet.

Tapering down this week. Sunday is Fueled by Fine Wine, a lovely 1/2 marathon through brutally hilly vineyards. 10 for scenery and torture. Also will score a 10 for obscenely early race. By 9 AM, I will be over the finish line and at the tasting tent with my souvenir wine glass.

I guess it will be 5 miles this evening, 4 miles tomorrow, rescue drill on Saturday, then 13 miles of sidehills through steep jory soil....

I've got back to back 10ks in just over a week and have been doing a lot of speedwork and have run the past 7 days straight. I crashed at a pathetic 3.3 miles today. May RD 2 days and run 13 with the group Sunday or try again tomorrow and only do the 7 Sunday. Need to taper a bit for the 2 races.

Worked a rescue drill and area familiarization. Not very aerobic. 1/2 marathon in the morning. Finished that all important carbo load, and will crash shortly. 1 1/2 hour drive to a 7 AM start - YIKES - for a brutal run through vineyards. Looking forward to the finish.

Optimistically I packed the car with climbing gear thinking we could stop after the race. 20 years ago, I know I would. Let's see what the old girl has in her tank tomorrow.

I'm drinking coffee right now, getting ready for about 6 hours on the bike. This will be my longest ride yet. The 60 I did day before yesterday really wiped me out, so we'll see how this goes.

I'm a little nervous about this century ride next weekend. This will be my first. The thing is that the crux of the ride comes after the 60 mile point (about an 18 mile hill climb). I just hope my pistons will have enough left to crank out that hill late in the ride like that.
