Welcome September!

Now that Ugly August is over, it's time to get things back to normal.  Back to working on my speedwork project, and to establish some sort of a running schedule, meaning blocking out when my long runs/races are.

I don't typically run that many organized races these days.  But maybe this fall, I will look into somewhat local 5Ks-or even 10ks-for the speedwork option.  I think I am doing fine with the "endurance" side of the equation.

Speaking of speedwork, today I am at Coopers Rock State Forest, West Virginia, running a trail 10K, the "Stump Jump". 

I've run some of the trails at Coopers Rock before.  Depending on what trails they use for the 10K, it could be somewhat of a technical trail run,  Or not.

My usual 10K around the block here (which is actually 6.4 miles) is 1.20, so hopefully I can go 1.10? 1.05? On legs that just ran a 50 miler the weekend before?  We shall see.

Well, I am not at Coopers Rock.  A co-worker had a death in the family, so I offered to work for her Saturday so she could get tasks done that she needed to do.

Back to the "life's too short" musing.  I have got a few activities that I want to accomplish;  items that have been on the burner, and it's time I got to working on them.
