In 5 days I’m tackling the Sweltering Summer 8 hour, and hope to top 50k. It should be doable as long as my foot holds out. And that really is starting to be the problem… every week it’s getting worse. I am now popping Ibuprofin like it’s going out of style and ice soaking the heck out of it. Doesn’t seem to be helping very much. I can’t let myself get too beat up, I still have to deal with NYC in November and then I can rest.
It’s been a taper week so my mileage was down, just 18 for the week. The weather has been nasty so I did a fair bit on the treadmill. I’m leaving in a week for a work trip and then vacation, so I have to get on a plane 36 hours after running the race. I’m sure that’s going to be fun 🙂 I’ve got to get everything together for the race, plus I have to get everything ready for my trip. Fun times! Next post will hopefully be a successful race report!
