I had to get in one more long run before the dreaded taper. The weather is just too beautiful not to be out running Shelby Farm! I ran the Chickasaw Trail and Tour d'Wolfe twice to finish with 21 miles. My right knee did not want to cooperate and I tried to run through the pain...which changed my gait...which then caused right hip pain. Fuck. It's a bitch being old.

I Hate Tapering

The Tour d'Esprit is 8 days away. Now it's time to taper...which I hate to do. My weekday mileage is at 20 and I plan on doing at least 20 this weekend before the complete taper.

Don't you love this weather?! It makes running outside so much easier and enjoyable!

I am on track for my upcoming 24 hour run (Tour d'Esprit), two weeks from tomorrow. My goals are multiple...

1. Actually keep moving for the entire 24 hours! Last year, I climbed in the tent after about 9 hours and slept for 7 hours before returning to the track.

2. Make 50 miles within the first 13 hours (hopefully around 10 hours...but I am a pessimist!).
3. Make 75 miles within the 24 hours (if all is going great, then see goal #4).
4. Make 100 miles within the 24 hours.
5. Have as much fun as possible.

Tonight's run:

Mile 10...

I Made It.

I really did not think that I would top 200 miles for the month of August...but, by damn it, I did! In fact, I made it to 204 miles. This is nothing compared to people like Anton Krupicka, but hey...I have a full time job and a family (nothing against Tony)!

I took Friday off, thinking I would not even get close to 200 anyway. I even slept in late and was fairly lazy Saturday morning. Once I finally hit the road, I was planning on just 8-10 miles. Well, one mile turned into two and two into four, etc, etc. I finally arrived home with 16 good miles in the bag and felt good enough for another 4.5 later in the day. Sunday was 12 at the gym, with another 4.7 at night with Jennifer. To make this long story short...I ended up with 72.7 for the week and 204.7 for the month.

Hopefully, the hot Memphis summer is coming to an end and we can run outside more in the near future.

Saturday's first run:
