Oh my fuck LOL
Went to a Korn concert.
Rocked my face off.
Tripped balls on mushrooms for hours and hours.
Woke up to find out my uncle die last night.
Completely amazed that the world doesn’t even pause, not for one second, to mourn. It just keeps spinning madly on.
I’m not sure my relationship with my friend Koltan will ever be the same, after being that high together. After being held while I learned about my uncle.
That’s a level of intimacy I’ve never experienced.
I need a nap.
Or, “I WANT TO RUN ULTRAS, I WANT TO RUN ULTRAS, I WANT TO *cough, pant, flail* RUN ULTRAS!”
My race partner is FINALLY home from vacation with his wifey. We hit the same trails that I failed miserably on yesterday and did about 12084485 times better. We did 7.4km in a little over an hour. Our pace hovered around 9min/km which, honestly, isn’t bad. I believe that’s pretty much the same pace I had during yesterdays run… However, I maintained it for an extra 3km today!
Needless to say, I’m feeling pretty good today. Exhausted… But good. I chanted my ultra chant (see above) for a good 3km. By the end of it, Ben was ready to push me off the trail into the creek! I really, really, REALLY do want to run ultras though. Like, a freakin LOT. It kept me shuffling along, long after my brain was telling me it’s time to lay down in the trail and die.
Tomorrow… Speed work! We’re gunna pump out a real speedy 3-4km run on some fairly flat ground. I want my pace under 7 minutes.
Spartan Race here I come!
I have a handful of new folks following me… Welcome! And thank you! Also, old followers… Thank you as well! My ask is always open for, well, anything. Witty banter, sharing opinions, questions about anything. Hell, tell me a story about YOU! I’d love to get to know each of you a bit better :)
Stayed out way, way, WAY too late last night and spent the day being sick. Yuck. Decided to get off my ass and go for a run anyway…
What I really wanted to do was tack another 2km on to my distance to bring it up to 7km… What actually happened is I nearly fell over dead in the middle of the trail. The loop I did was 4km, and I barely made it back to the car. Seriously. I fell over in the grass and just laid there for a bit. It was 4km in 36 minutes, compared to the other day when I did 5.6km in 48 minutes. Freakin terrible!
I rewarded myself for living through my run/flail by getting a cheeseburger and fries, which I shared with my trusty running sidekick. Without my dog I think I’d become the biggest couch potato in all the land.
OH! And while I was flailing/running through the forest, I ran into my dogs breeders! Bam is kind of a “rescue”, and his breeders were SO HAPPY with how he looked! I was thrilled, cause their dogs look amazing. They were practicing for weight pull, all muscular and shiny! Bams dad was one of the dogs, and it was pretty funny to see them together… Bam makes a HUGE scene when he sees other dogs, and so does his pa! And the two of them sound identical haha.
And on that note… Goodnight tumblr!
