I haven’t ran this far for the fun of it since spring of last year. I am definitely pushing back my wall. This breaks 100 for the month. I am excited to see how much I’ll have at the end.
I did some quick yoga after to loosen up, then soaked in a hot oatmeal bath (high humidity lately has given me some annoying rashes) and laid down in my newly a.c. furnished bedroom to stop the sweating. I plan on doing some breathing exercises later as well. Such a good day!
FUNNIEST RUNNING EXPERIENCE SO FAR!
(I’ll just copy and paste my facebook post so I can be lazy)
Going for 20 miles. Staying on the Ferndale trail and track for the first half, doing laps. My zune stops working at mile 7 and says I have to connect it to my PC. So I figure I can head back for a refuel point anyway. Passing two teenage girls who were at the track during my laps as they leave, I notice one of my water bottles are gone. Look back at the girls walking down the street and one drops the bottle on the ground. Next time you can keep them, girls. I have a bunch at home and I usually don’t re-hydrate during training runs anyway. Bad habit.
I believe they threw it on the ground because when I passed them I was only 25 meters from where I set my bottles. When I left the track to run a 3 mile loop on a trail that comes back to the track they probably thought I was gone for good.
The funny thing is they have no idea how “dirty” I really am. Unfortunately for them I am one of the lesser hygienic people I know. Fortunately for me, despite my poor hygiene I am very healthy inside and can get away with it. She drank half of my bottle, and you KNOW I drank the other half after I retrieved it. Oh hell yeah!
