My training has been going well. Unfortunately, my legs have been feeling really stiff and uncomfortable. I am not sure if my diet has been low on protein, or if I am running more than I think I am. My brother and I have been running together lately, and the pace is sometimes faster than I usually go. Could that be it? Just in case I needed more protein, I ate a hamburger last night. :)
Saturday begins the Western States training weekend. That is always a favorite "must do". This year, I am only running on Saturday. I will miss the excitement of running the rest of the weekend with friends. We will run from Robinson Flat to Foresthill. It always is a great time.
I am running a 50k on June 8th. It is the Auburn 50k It will be my first race as a 50 year old. (I can't believe that I actually just wrote that) but that is just the way it is. I turn 50 on June 6, and it will be a great birthday present for me to be out there doing what I love to do.
I'm off to the pool for a short swim to stretch out these stiff legs. I hope to see some of you on Saturday at the training camp. Have a great day!
