I have 6 weeks until I start training for the AC100 and so I have partially hung up my running shoes, I’ll be kicking over 20-25 miles per week or so just to keep my hand (or foot) in and jumping on the bike for some fun rides; although he is somewhat neglected and needs a good service and clean. I also need to put together my training plan which is going to be a challenge in itself. In the meantime my focus will be on dropping some of the weight I picked up during my taper (and a bit more beyond that) and tightening things up in general.
It’s also a good time to reconnect with the Quad family, ultra running can be a selfish sport with a lot of time spent on the trails/roads alone. Not wanting to simply connect while sitting still I convinced my wife to commit to P90X. I’ve been thinking about it for a while and having actually met someone who used the program to great success (losing 100lbs+) as well as some of the results I have seen in the blogosphere; I need to lose 10-15lbs and get back to the emaciated long distance runner look...well not quite but you know what I mean.
It’s ordered and will be here next week, I’ll keep you posted and updated...maybe with some photos if you're unlucky enough!
