5 mile dayz

Lately all I have felt like doing is 5 milers at Turkey. I dream of running 20-25 milers on awesome trailz I've never been to, finding new wonderlands within an hours drive of me--but I have just been to lazy and unmotivated to go.

Five miles is better than no miles though. Stack a few 5 milers in a week, and a 20 mile week is decent enough training to maintain whatever meager flicker of endurance I might have. The upward heat (yeck!) and the unexpected rains (yeah!) result in sickening humidity (bletchch!!) That explains a lot. Picture taking has been decent though. 

There's often something new to see on the trail. A new teepee just down-creek from Pepsi Lake. Not sure if someone lives there--and what an awful place to put it. Not far from there, I found something that might seem out of place, but to trail runners--they know EXACTLY what this is. 
Ya best not pick it up!!

I guess I can call my slump a taper--again. I do have Dizzy Goat coming up in two weeks.


  1. Yep, leave those lone socks alone.

    20 miles per week is pretty good my friend.

  2. I do not know if it's just me or if everybody else experiencing issues
    with your blog. It seems like some of the
    written text in your content are running off the screen.
    Can someone else please provide feedback and let me
    know if this is happening to them as well? This might be a problem with my browser because I've had this happen before.
