Raining on the trails

April is my turning out to be my month to build my base back up. Today was a day of trail running at Maybury S.P. with all the rain the ground was muddy. I logged only nine miles today bringing my month to date mileage to 60 miles. Building it up slowly this month so next month I can increase even more and get some speed sessions too. Best part was being covered in mud from mid thighs to ankle. The kind when you take your socks off there is a huge noticeable difference plus the mud caked into the toenails.

Going to rest the next two days then hit several more runs next week. A good mix of trail, dirt roads and some roads too. In May I plan to try for a new mile PR....that will be interesting.

  1. Funny thing.... I don't mind if my legs, face and arms get dirty.... if my feet or hands get dirty I freak out. During a race I try not to look at my feet and make sure to wash my hands every time I get to my special needs bag!! Yes..... I have issues! :)

    Good luck with your PR.
