Day 30?!?!?! How did that happen, I'm 1/3 of the way through my 3 month half marathon training. So far so good, by using the principles from Project: Bridging the Wellness Gap, I feel that I am right on target for the half marathon, and on track for my "covert operation", my top secret (for now) mission that I have planned for December. It's no big deal and some of you at last Saturday's meeting overheard me talking to Corbin about it. However, I'm not ready to share the news with everyone... yet. Again, no big deal, except maybe to me and the challenge that it represents.
Made it out to Eagle Creek today, not the time I intended to be there, yet I made it out for a little recon mission for this Sundays Adventure. The trails look pretty sweet, everything is dry as of right now and very hard pack. If you haven't done the trails at Eagle Creek, I'll provide you with a nice mix of single track, hard pack, gnarly twists complete with roots jutting out in all directions, uphills, downhills, gravel sections and even a little pavement. So this Sunday you will get to see a little of everything that Eagle Creek has to offer, along with some amazing views of the reservoir.
I also discovered a way to link a couple trails together, so this route will be different than the routes we took last time and I think everyone is in for a fun adventure. The longer route will take most runners around 45 minutes to complete, depending on your pace. Since this isn't a race, I would like most of us to stay together for a fun workout and to support each other on the run and for the "mystery" challenges as well. Put it this way, we are gonna challenge all dimensions of our fitness on Sunday!
Please let me know if you plan to attend.
