Wow, I can't believe it's been a month since my last post. What in the world have I been doing? Well, in short: school and being sick.
I skipped Dude, Where's the Trail because I had an immunology test the next day. I didn't feel real ready for it on the Saturday before the race and I didn't want to be stressed during the run thinking "I should be studying..." so, I figured it'd be best to just not do the race. Sigh.
After that, I spent most of my time getting ready for finals, dealing with the cold weather, and getting sick enough to take 7 days off of running. :( I added a bit of bike/elliptical work during that time, but nothing as vigorous as usual.
I feel like I still have a good base - as evidenced by my quick 8 mile run around SMP on Saturday after helping a buddy move all morning. So, I'll tweak my training a bit and keep working towards that sub-24 goal at Rocky.
Oh, and I'll post more.
