Last 5K

Did a nice easy 5K yesterday for my last real run this week. Trying not to think about it too much, lots of other excitement this weekend… But may do 1-2K on Saturday just to get out the jitters.

Package pickup is tonight and tomorrow, gotta find some time to get out there. Also, looking forward to the next race (something I read was a good idea while preparing to run and dealing with taper week)… I’m not really sure what to do there. I’d like to try and run a fast marathon this year while my speed is up. I’m thinking either Seattle in December, or there’s a night one in Las Vegas in November… I’ll be looking into those today!

Taper week does suck though, what am I supposed to do tonight if I’m not running or partying?! heh. Anyways, Happy Thanksgiving non-existent readers! I’ll post post-race. 🙂

Glenbow Ranch Provincial Park

This place is awesome, just bee tee dubs.

Anyways, headed back last night for my last hilly 10K before the 50K grizzly this weekend. Still pretty nervous, but thinking back to how I was prepared for my marathon back in May vs how I’m prepared now makes me feel better. I still didn’t do enough long long hilly runs, but I’ve put in some really good miles, and have to hope that’ll carry me through the 1600+ meters of vertical involved (which honestly worries me much more than the 50K of trail). The last time I did 1600 meters in one day, it was climbing the Calgary tower 10 times over 6 hours, and I was wrecked… Though that was in my pre-running days.

Anyways, the run last night went well, it was  a great last trail run and confidence builder. I shall leave you (*cough* non-existant *cough*) readers with some pictures of Glenbow Ranch’s awesomeness!

ski, run, bike, snowboard, whatever!
