I know that the year is quickly passing me by when I begin to look at future races for the coming year. I'm very happy with the races and results that I have had this year. I surpassed some of my goals. I still have goals to tackle..a Boston Qualifier at Twin Cities Marathon on October 2, for one.
I was planning on entering 3 100's for 2006. I was planning on McNaughton in IL, Kettle-Morraine in WI and Superior in MN.
Note the WAS in the above sentences. I thought I had it all figured out.
Now I'm thinking about some of the major races.
Western States in CA
Leadville in CO
Yikes...these thoughts are kind of scary to me. I keep on thinking that I am not good enough, not prepared well enough to do these races. Friends; good, experienced ultra running friends, keep telling me that I am ready..
I'm still thinking...I will someday do the Grand Slam ( 4 - 100's in one summer: Vermont 100, Western States, Leadville and Wasatch..oh my...)
On a less decisive thought, I ran 5 miles on the treadmill this early AM, will head to the gym after work for weight training of the leggies.
M1 Oat pancake (1 c oats, 1 egg, 5 whites, splenda, cinnimon and sf syrup)
M2 Banana, Myopro
M3 Tuna Creation pack, 1 apple
M4 4 oz chicken, spinach, sf blue cheese dressing, tomato
M5 Chicken kabob, greens
OK, goals are good. Big, far reaching goals are better.
