they say…

Saturday, November 8th, 2008

They say that if you time your peak fitness, with a proper taper that the couple weeks leading up to a race shouldn’t feel good.  This time around in my prep, there’s no doubt that this is the way things are.  This is hard on the brain – I don’t like not feeling good!  Despite all this, Allison said something that made me feel better – she said, you’ve done the work, and that’s all that is important right now.  Putting it all in perspective, she’s absolutely right,…I shouldn’t care how I feel right now, the important prep and the loading has been done.  Analyzing this doesn’t change anything.  I just need to keep executing workouts, then race my race when the day comes.  Simple.

I was feeling the big ‘ol hurt during my 2.5hour run today.  There was no shortage of sufferage – I’m just glad no one was out on the trails to see me crying.

Happy Halloween

Crocodile eating a dog costume

These dog costumes crack me up.  The crocodile eating the dog costume was walked around as a promotion for the Neunkirchen Zoo.  Apparently the stunt increased attendence for the month by 15%.

Today was freezing temperatures in Calgary.  2 hats, 2 layers of gloves, 4 layers on my feet definitely were a must for my bike ride.  All is good.
