Itching to Go


Week 16 of 18 is in the books. Saturday was a 6K "pace" run. I couldn't control myself, it was too difficult to stay on pace, I was 20 to 30 seconds /km too fast. I loved it. Sunday was supposed to be 19, I upped it to 20, on a challenging hill run up and down Tyotown Road. I felt awesome afterwards. Normally, I'd be cooked for the rest of the day, but I was just fine. Right now, I honestly feel as good as I'm ever going to get. I wish I could run the Marathon tomorrow. Week 17 and 18 are "taper" weeks. Long run is only 13 on Sunday.

And in other news...
Operation Prohibition has been downgraded to Operation Moderation. Who was I kidding?
