Rivanna Running Again

Last week- 13 miles total...ugh tired, and rested / cross trained

Saturday- Charlottesville 10 miler- with Anne
Sunday & Monday- off
Tuesday- 20 miles- 3:27

I Had a great day today running the Rivanna Ring trail correctly today with Jeff Wilbur and a trailrunning visitor from Oregon. We had a good time and enjoyed great weather (60's P cl) despite fore casted rain. With the help of Charlottesville legend Jeff Wilbur I did not get lost this time in my third attempt at true ring run. And since we ran from his house. the actual loop only took us 3:19 to run. (stats here at motionbased)

We averaged 10:20 per mile...which is decent on this surprisingly tough trail. My hamstrings and calves are very tired. It was the perfect last long training run before the Bull Run Run 50 miler.

I have now finished the 20 week on-line post grad program in prosthetics from Northwestern and am looking forward to going to Chicago for the in residence part of the program May 5- June 27. I'm going to miss some great Virginia Ultras...but hope to get in some local running there like the Ice age 50 with my brother Tim and maybe Kettle Moraine.

In the ultra world congrats to flyin Brian Robinson for his CR finish at the Barkley 100. Very impressive. For me it is now time to get some short runs in and rest up for BRR.
