After feeling tired on Monday, I just ran an easy 8 miles yesterday with some strides. My legs bounced back nicely for this morning’s 15 mile trail run.

No time to sleep in tomorrow as I’ll have to get up early before heading to Iowa for the day.

No turkey trot for me. I can’t even remember the last turkey trot I ran. I do remember running one when I was 10 or 11. I drank a glass of orange juice for breakfast and it came back up after the race. I haven’t been a big OJ drinker since then.

Even though the Olympic Trials Marathon was nearly 3 weeks ago, I still find myself thinking about the race. If there was some way to bottle the images in my head and sell them, I’d be all set. Just thinking about the ease in how Ryan Hall looked has definitely helped get me through some of my runs lately.

Finally, here are some updated journals by Kristen Nicolini-Lehmkuhle and Andrew Carlson.

Happy Thanksgiving!

Quote of the day;

“Physically part of my problem last year was that I ramped up my training so fast to get ready for winter racing that by the time March came around I was pretty much just fried. So now, we are taking it slow and preparing everyday for the Olympic Trials this summer.” - Andrew Carlson

Nice run. Isn't it great when a run feels good?

Stay tuned...
