Today I had a good long, slow, distance run. It wasn’t too long, and it was very slow, but I’ll take what I can get.
I’m surprised that I’m never approached to do run-modeling. Weird.
Today’s run was nice. It went by smoothly, and I wasn’t pushing it so didn’t set myself up for disappointment. I am still a little sore from my mountain run on Tuesday and the gym yesterday, so we’ll see how the rest of the week pans out. I’m guessing I’ll hit about 30 miles by Sunday, and then slowly being ramping it up in the following weeks.
I got a super-awesome package in the mail yesterday! A few weeks back I won a great prize package from the blog irunfar.com and it included quite a ridiculous amount of schwag. (Is that how you spell schwag??)
Some of the goodies:
I’m definitely interested in trying Udo’s Oil. I like the idea of natural supplements. Plus, Geoff Roes and Scott Jurek use it, which means that if I use it, there’s a pretty good chance I’ll win Western States next year.
If not, I can always fall back on modeling.
There is more stuff coming as well: shoes, sunglasses, and running clothes. I’ll be sure to post pics when the rest of the gear comes in so you can all be jealous of my AWESOME trail running duds. Thanks Bryon Powell!!
Tomorrow I’m going for a run with my brother. I’m really hoping his 31 year old bones can keep up with me.
