Week's Summary

Pretty light week in terms of volume.  I think my massive hike I did on Saturday to White Pine Lake fried my legs, so I didn't get in the usual weekend long run.  I also took two days off this week, which is sort of a rarity for me.

I also got in close to 12 miles of hiking throughout the weekend.  I do tend to work at the hikes pretty aggressively so they amount to a bit of a cardio workout -- not to mention climbing several thousand feet also added to the challenge.

This week also had more hot weather, which always makes running challenging.  Is it fall yet?

I am looking at ramping up the mileage this week and to dial it back when I go on vacation the following week.  I am sure I'll do some exploring on my runs when I am out west, but I think the longer than 7 miles will be a rarity (although you never know).

This weekend I am hoping to put in a solid 20 mile run.  It is a week early for Jackson, but given the constraints I have to work with, it is what I have to do.

Upcoming Races

8/15: Park City Half Marathon - maybe -- depends upon when I get back to town.
09/5: Jackson Hole Wyoming Marathon (very very probable - I booked the hotel)
10/18: Duke City Marathon (Probable. Hotel is booked for Albuquerque)
11/15: Las Vegas Marathon (definite)
