Run Streak Day: 1417
This weekend started the beginning of what will hopefully be a string of momentous training days. Saturday began with an energizing breakfast, which lead to some time at the range, then some running in the woods and festivities. But, as they say, a picture is worth a thousand words. So below is about 8k worth of awesomeness.
- Keep pushing the limits my friends.
This is how to get things started for an epic weekend. Feed the body and you will be able to rock all of the awesomeness.
Home. Home on the Range. This is the first time shooting a gun since I left my beloved United States Marine Corps. I am proud to say that I can still hit the target. I forgot how much the smell of gunpowder can get your blood flowing.
First trail run in over a year. This is the same park that part of my ultra will be in next year. Slow and steady doesn’t win the race, but it sure does allow you to take in the pretty scenery.
Recovery Part 1. What is the first thing you should eat or drink after running around in the woods for an hour? Anything you dang well please. In full disclosure, after this beer I had a protein shake and grilled chicken.
Recovery Part 2. My friend’s house is near part of the course for my ultra, hence I have claimed it as my unofficial training center. He has a pool in his backyard and it stays open until about November. So even though it might be too cold some people to go swimming, not for us. It soothes the legs while strengthening the soul.
