When I talked about the importance of blogs a couple days ago – I meant as in *reading* them. Because to write them would mean that something exciting would need to be happening. Not so much right now.
A couple of you noticed and commented that my planned and tentative races are off the sidebar. Yes. My main task right now is getting back into running shape. That means miles on the trails, not miles on the course. To the former point, I *did* manage to get out 4 days in a row this week, including a short hill workout on Wednesday. Mileage isn’t great (3 to 3 1/2 at a time), but the last time I ran four days in a row… heck… the last time I exercised four days in a row was the week ending June 27, 2010. Jeesh!
I have a day off today, and then <<gasp>> six miles on Saturday. I think I’ll need to stick to the Back Bay, because it seems that all the local wilderness parks are still closed from last week’s rain. Have I mentioned that here in Southern California, 10 inches of rain is like the hundred year flood? Well, at least the flood of the decade. There was a lot of damage in the backcountry parks that, in some cases, are going to require a little more than just drying out. Oh well. Back to the grindstone….
