On Saturday, Dec. 8th, my friend Suzanna and I, and some friends are running from Pt. Reyes to the Golden Gate Bridge!! 66 or so fickin miles. I would like to run the whole enchilada, but I am not sure how I will feel. It seems like such a long time since I've run that far. Well, it has. 3 months to be exact. Suzanna thought this crazy long run up, and then told me about it. That is all it took. It will be a great training run and we always have a lot of fun doing them. Suzanna is running Hurt 100 in January and the Coyote Two Moon 100 in March.
I have been watching my diet lately and am excited about the way I feel. I weigh the same but I am looking leaner. Watching my carb intake works for me and I am feeling strong. Even though I am an endurance athlete, eating a lot of carbs just bloats me and makes me feel sluggish. I am happy with the way my body feels right now. Check out this blog and read about some exciting nutritional information. I just got lost reading this blog and I found it so interesting.
Swimming today just totally sucked!! Could you hear me gasping for air? It was down right embarrassing. I swam with the Master's and it is amazing how fast I lost my endurance in the pool. I felt like I got a good workout in but I must commit to swimming on a more regular basis. I swallowed so much water that I haven't needed to drink any water since!! I cringe when I think about how many loogies I probably swallowed. Yuck!!
Have a happy week!
