I can’t lie, I’m struggling with writing my Phoenix Marathon recap. All the professional bloggers in the interwebs who participated in #itsGoingDownAtPHX are putting their race-recaps together and letting everyone know that without a doubt #itWentDownInPHX. I just can’t get my head wrapped around how to even begin to put “pen to paper” and capture all the sights, all the sounds, all the emotions, all the feelings of what went on this past weekend. I start and stop…and start up again. It will get done, I promise. I just need a mental break.
Oh man, it’s Aloha Friday gangeez. And it’s one day closer to saying Aloha to the Phoenix Marathon. Oh how quickly this race went from my “A race” to just a run. The goal is just to finish and get dat bling!
It’s been a minute since I’ve posted and boy how things haven’t gone the way I wanted to. I had this cool strategy that I’d be able to parlay my ultramarathon training into my marathon training and PR from last years race. Well, that went out the window after only logging 6 runs…yes 6 runs since Cold Water Rumble, a busted hip, a jacked knee, and 1 of 2 “book it down” sick spells of the year.
Ok, gangeez it’s been a while since I’ve done a product review. And for the first time in a long time, I was excited to get my hands on this product. The use of this product touts the theory of Disruptive Training. This type of training focuses on engaging your core and tries to promote mind muscle activation. And if there is anything that could help me with improving and strengthening my core, I’m down to try.
So, truth be told, I had this whole spiel ready to post about how emotional this last run was for me. I was going to re-iterate my angst about whether or not to run the 52 miles because of my injuries and the inconsistent training. I was going to tell you that up until the night before, when I was packing for 52 miles that I was still debating to downgrade to the 52k. And how after the first 12 miles I got rerouted because the wind pushed down the directional sign and I ended up with 58 miles, not 52…or even how I sobbed like a baby coming into the home stretch and then bawling in my wife’s arms…
Well wassup gangeez! It’s aloha Friday! and what?! 2 posts in a week?! And to what do I owe you guys a second post? Well, did you know that even men Sweat Pink?! If you didn’t notice on the side where I store my ambassador badges, there’s 2 there for me being a Sweat Pink ambassador and Sweat Guru Pro. Look to your right of the page, you see it? Pretty awesome huh?! =)
Wassup gangeez. Hoping you all are having a great Monday! Me, I’m recovering from another Aravaipa trail
race run and getting more serious in the taper part of my training. It’s only 2 weeks away from the 2015 Aravaipa Coldwater Rumble. My training has had it’s ups and downs…and if you ask Mrs. TSA how many times I’ve been debating about downgrading, she’d probably tell you about twice a day. I think about it all the time.
