4 mile on the schedule today.....0 miles run.  Too tired.


Doing my long run during the week really messes things up.  It's too long of a run during the week.  It's not easy running that long then working all day.  Also, getting up that early just makes me tired all day as well. Live and learn.  I won't be doing a run longer than 10 miles ever during the week going forward.

Sunday I have the big mud race!  Warrior Dash.  I'm not treating it as a race though.  First, I don't want to hurt myself and be out of commission for a long time.  Second, it's my first race of this kind.  Third, I just want to have fun and not worry about the clock and do something new.  12 obstacles.  It's looking like it's going to be in the 90's for Sunday.  It also rained like crazy yesterday and today so who knows what the course will be like.  Really muddy?

I know some of you have done a race like this before.  It looks like you enjoyed doing it.  There is another race that's coming to Michigan next year called the Tough Mudder.  Now this looks crazy!  19-20 obstacles, really crazy obstacles, and 10 miles.  Take about 2.5 hours to complete.  Plus it's in April in Michigan so the water parts would be REALLY cold.  I will NOT be signing up for this one but it would be interesting to watch.  Unfortunately, the charge spectators to watch it - no thanks!  Each one is different but this gives you an idea of the course - Crazy!

Question fo the day?  Have you ever done the Tough Mudder?

Have a great day and.....Keep Running!!!!!


  1. I did my long run on Sunday instead of Saturday last weekend and it's killing my runs this week. Not having that Sunday rest day is no good.

  2. Too Tired????? You can rest when you're dead! LOL, enjoy your mud bath!

  3. Have fun with the Warrior Dash!

  4. Have a blast!!! I didn't do a WD, but I did something similar and it is tons a fun. I've never done a TM, but would love to.

  5. I've done Hell Run (same concept) LOVED it!
