CALLING ALL HARRY POTTER FANS AND RUNNERS

YOU GUYS

IF YOU HAVEN’T HEARD ABOUT THIS YET YOU SHOULD

SERIOUSLY GUYS THIS IS THE BEST EVER

  1. Virtual races.  Where ever you are, you can race on your own time!  No more 6 am races!  
  2. That being said this is the BEST for new runners who may feel super intimated by going to a race with tons of seasoned runners present.  It isn’t timed (only if you want to time yourself).  You can WALK the entire distance if you want, you don’t even need to run.  It’s totally on the honor system, no need to share results.  In fact, you can split up the distance over multiple days if you want!  Perfect for new and old runners alike!  You can do this with friends or on your own (though friends are awesome for post-race selfies).
  3. All races are only $25.  You know how some races are super expensive?Well, this is only $25, for every race.  And HRC is non-profit, and every race donates to a different deserving charity.
  4. Harry Potter.  Did I mention Harry Potter?
  5. You get personalized bibs AND a race medal for every race you complete!  Score!

SERIOUSLY THOUGH CHECK IT OUT.  http://www.hogwartsrunningclub.org/

Big training weekend

My new job starts Monday so my super flexible training time will be going away.  I’m 3 weeks from the White River 50 right now - meaning I wrap up this week strong, do another relatively big one, then start my taper.  Coming into today I had 22 miles and 5000+ feet of climb.  

The goal for Friday through Monday morning is 50 miles and 10,000+ feet of climb in 4 days.  The plan is 13 this morning (done), 17+ miles tomorrow morning (with a peak climb or two), 10 Sunday morning and 10 Monday before my first day of work.  

Day 1 down at a pretty decent pace:

I can’t believe i am already in week 5 of this training plan. I still feel great and not too heavy and tired….yet. Today’s workout called for 4x1.25 at threshold. I ran the high mileage side of things because my long run on Sunday was a tad short and I want to make sure I hit my mileage for the week. This pace was hard enough to feel uncomfortable but not so hard I couldn’t finish the workout. I’m happy where things are headed.
