At o’dark early Sunday morning, Bird Legs and I set out for our last 20 miler before Big Sur! She just happened to be in town for the weekend but was leaving early afternoon on Sunday so we had to start EARLY! It worked out good because then we were done early!! :)
We started out flat on the waterfront. Then we started up the hills. Up and over Corbett(which has been my Tuesday morning run). Hit up Terwilliger. Kara was afraid I was going to take her up there!! :) Came back down. Up and over Corbett again. Back to the waterfront with little baby rollers.
We chatted the entire time. I had forgotten how nice it was to have a training partner.
I had originally thought I would try to make this a rehearsal for IMC but I think that it would be too hard. I do not need to take in as many calories at BS then I will need to at IMC. I will probably walk more at IMC then BS.
We came up with our goals for Big Sur:
1-To take in the scenery
2-To have fun and to have an enjoyable race
This was kind of a whirlwind of a training cycle. I was regularly doing a 10-12 miler for 2 months. I amped up for a 14 and 16 miler. Shortened week(10 miler). 18 and 20 milers the last 2 weeks. Taper is in full swing now. Well not really. I am still doing everything on my schedule. Next week will be much less!
It will be interesting to see how it goes. No time goal. Which is always better because I typically do better when there isn’t a huge goal looming over my head!!! I am very excited for this race. It is going to be gorgeous!! I am looking forward to the views!!
Happy Wednesday!! Who saw the lunar eclipse?! I was exhausted and really wanted to stay up could there was no way! I heard you could not really see it until midnight!
