(L) The last week I have gone back to nature and rather than lamenting the fact that I wasn’t running some set distance…I just enjoyed where I was. I have walked around Nashville, Boulder and Colorado Springs.
Now, while I am not setting any running records I am having a great time. Don’t ask me how my training is going for the Slacker Half-marathon, which is in about 10 days! It’s not going to be pretty, but I am still going to do it. I clearly have some warped sense of what is manageable when I think I can just go run 13.1 miles with not much more that 4 miles under my belt. I really could use some of G’s training mojo, which has long since been thrown out the window.
For now though I am basking in the two days without rain and appreciating the great outdoors.
Go G and Swaggy J. Run Far and Run Free!
(G): It’s been a pretty serious race schedule for me so far this year. And by serious, I just mean that I have participated in a fair number of races by my standards and I have done quite a lot of training. Last year, after the Outrun 24 featuring the 50-mile delight, I took a break and didn’t have another race until August. This year we kept charging forward with a race last weekend and another one on Saturday. That’s soon to be 5 races and usually the number I do all year.

The Torture Report began in January 2014 as a weekly update of our journey to completing a 50-mile race. Since then it’s continued on to become a chronicle of how we try mightily to find fitness, health and sometimes the finish line. We aren’t always successful but we keep showing up and telling you all about it on Tuesdays.
