First Snow


View from the "DeWitt High Altitude Hotel"

Today was our first real snow of the year here. Yesterday was warm and sunny, and today it was a high of 28 and about 4 inches of snow up here. I wasn't quite ready for a snow run, so today was a treadmill day. Generally the goal for me the week after a 100 is simply to get myself ready to resume normal training the following week. I actually felt as good as I've ever felt after a 100, but I still took it very easy and mostly walked this week. My hamstring is sore, but no more sore than it was before the 100 so I'm pleased with that. The next 10 days will be a challenge to get some decent training in because I'll be driving 30 hours to Rhode Island, standing around my furniture booth for 3 days, then driving 30 hours back.

Good luck to everyone running the San Diego 100 (yesterday but I don't know any results yet) and the Javelina 100 next weekend!

Hey Paul,
smart training after Heartland. Sounds like a long drive ahead, be sure to stretch! One thing I hate after ultras is sitting in a car. I usually have to stop and stretch often.

only a matter of time before we get our snowfall too
