I guess all weeks cannot be above average. This means that some will suck. This was another of those. As the title says, this was a weird week. Both my daughters are away. My running, although getting better, started in the gutter last weekend. And it was my birthday. Everything was just off.
I'm still struggling a bit mentally on longer runs. Not sure why. It's as if my inner dialog brain center went into dialog-debt during Susitna and now I can't think about anything. My kids being away, I can't be mad at them for the various usual reasons.
Luckily, things have started to improve a bit so I'm optimistic I will be ready for the Mud Puppies 52k.
Last week I ran a total of 3h 15min. I started ramping up a bit and next week I'm going back to more "serious" training.
I've now lost 3 toenails and that will be it. I've learned my lesson, so I waited for them to be ready to fall off so there were no pliers or blood involved. They already started growing back, so it's all good.
That's all she wrote my friends. I'm off to the airport to pick up my oldest.
