And I still have my sanity!
I was supposed to run 31 miles on Saturday, and I decided to do it at the track. Why? Because I knew it would be almost mentally impossible. And I knew doing that would help me to be a little more prepared to run 100 miles in April.
Well, at almost mile 20, a couple guys came up there and were acting creepy. I ignored them for awhile, but then just started to feel uneasy. I was the only one there, and I also didn't have my mace with me. (I lost it and haven't bought more yet) So, I decided to head home and do the remaining 11 there.
I felt like a big chicken. Like maybe I should just ignore them. I mean they weren't bothering me, just watching me, but I felt weird! And, you're always supposed to follow your instincts, right? Especially when it comes to safety.
So, I came home and ran 2 more miles, but by then I had just lost my mojo. :(
I was disappointed it didn't go as planned, but I do know when it's 3 a.m., and I'm on mile 65 (or whatever), and don't know if I can go on, I can look back on that time I ran 80 laps around a track. And I'll tell myself if I can do that, I can finish this ultra!
I ended up with 22 miles. My time was 4:10, average pace 11:22.
Have you guy's heard of the spicy yogurt roasted cauliflower? I found the recipe here. I made it yesterday.
Yea, I am NOT a fan! I think it definitely has potential though. The 'crust' just had an overload of spices. It was too much. I might try it again sometime, and just change the spices. I'm thinking the 'awesome blossom' sauce from Outback Steakhouse would be deelish on it! I'll just have to figure out how to make it low fat.
What did you do this weekend?
