Great Wall Training Weeks 10 & 11

We're into the double digits on number of weeks in training which means double digit running.  Week 10 was pretty epic.  Being back on the track is awesome, I felt awesome on the 10-miler, plus the weather was stormy.  I have missed longer runs!!  THEY ARE MY FAVORITE.


Long run recovery.



I did five with little man.  He's cute!!  Soon it will be too hot to bring him along.  We hit our first triple digit temps on May 1st!  Roasty toasty.


After 4 miles (still holding on to his toy).


After track practice this past week, I woke up with that little knee niggle I had noticed a few weeks back.  I decided to stretch/roll/smash it out on Saturday instead of running 6.  Hopefully I can resolve it asap!  I think it's due to my longer run increase + some speed work, because other than that adjustment for my legs, my mileage is low.

Nothing keeps a runner up at night like the mind wandering down the path of injury.  I'm the injury mind wandering master.


Chicks dig chubby dudes.


My dog.  Every time I foam roll.


This upcoming week will be another easy one.  This China trip has been in the works for like three years, and it's staring us in the face.  I can't believe we're already into the month of May, 2015!

That's all for now.  Have a wonderful week!
