Sorry I've been MIA a lot lately... I really have just been so mentally and physically exhausted and I have not had the energy to do ANY of the things I am suppose to be doing. In fact, I had to convince myself to start writing this blog now... So lets get this done!!!
1. I "technically" started my training for the Malibu Dirt Dash. This race is going to be a 10k trail run followed by a 5k mud run... my FIRST attempt at both!!! (What the F*** was I thinking?!?!). Most of the time that I do my usual runs I'm outside, and convinced myself that this counts as a trail run... but it doesn't. I know I'm going to have to start actually training soon, so I decided to try some Hill Repeats (aka... go up and down a hill as many times as I can).
I woke up late today, so I didn't even get out until almost 9:30am. It was Humid as shit!!! Thank God I remembered to bring my water bottle with me, because I had to douse myself ever few minutes to prevent myself from melting to death.I started at my house and did a 5 min/ .5 mile warm up run to get to the Hill.
