My husband and I were going to sign up for the AR 50 this weekend....we were all set to hit 'Send'. But then my husband decided to check his parents calendar to make sure they were free to babysit. And low and behold...they will be on a cruise that weekend. And my parents, well, let's just say my mom does not support my running habit, especially this 50 miler. So we are out of luck. We have no babysitter for the AR 50. Thank god my husband checked the calendar or we might be out some $$$.
Also, another kink in my plan - I was going to run Sunday, Monday, Wed, Thurs, Friday and Sunday. Tuesday and Saturday were going to be my days to "sleep in" to 7 or 7:30 (dependent on the kids and their wake up time). I knew I was going to need that sleep. BUT a class at work I need to take just so happens to be on Tuesday morning from 6 to 8 AM. I have to have 100% attendance to this class to pass. Yikes - there goes one of my sleep in days.
I guess I am going to have to get used to getting up really early 6 out the 7 days of the week and work on trying to get to bed as early as possible. Because I need my sleep. Plain and simple. I am not one of these people who can go on 4-5 hours of sleep a night.
And we are trying to get creative about a babysitter... maybe it will work out...somehow. Either that or my husband does the AR 50 and I do the Leona Divide 50 miler on April 30th. We may have to divide and conquer this way.
Has anyone out there run the Leona Divide 50 miler before?
Total Miles - 33 miles
# of days - 4 days running
Speed workout -No
Longest run - 15
Cross training - Strength training 2X
How I felt - Felt good this week, although by Friday, I needed some rest. So, I took Friday and Saturday off to get some much needed sleep. 15 miler on Sunday went really well (average 9:41) even though it was pouring!!!
