Shotgun Trail Blast & Miwok musings
I just signed up for the trail blast this weekend. I wasn't planning on running this race because the only time I had run it before, I thought it was more mud than fun. However, last weekend I had a difficult time getting my long run in and I didn't want to have another weekend without good strong miles, so entering the race was my insurance of 31 miles - yea! Miwok is coming up and I had just begun to worry about if I've trained "enough". This thought always comes up at some point before a race that means something to me, and this year it's no different. I have about a month left before Miwok and I have 2 weekends to get some major miles in with HILLS! Looking back on my training going into Miwok last year, I'm in just about the same place. I'd hoped I would be in a better place, but knowing I was pretty close, reassured my What if thoughts. My goal for Miwok is to run it faster than last year and to conquer the stomach issues I had for the first half of the race. This means for the next month, paying close attention to what I'm eating and how it makes me feel the next day and during a run.
