Week after the 50k

Well, the 50k is over.  It was a lot of fun, and I healed very quickly!  I did an easy 5k around the neighborhood after a full day of rest.  Also did two days of trail running about 6 miles each.  I didn't have a lot of time during the week for some reason.  I was planning on running a lot over the weekend but it just flew by.  Friday I didn't run because I was busy doing something very important...  Don't remember what though.  On Saturday I had to mow and wash the car to get it ready for sale - sold it successfully later that afternoon.  Saturday was very hot out, reaching close to 100 degrees and humid.  It didn't cool down later that night either.  Sunday was full of babysitting, shopping, birthday celebration and more heat/humidity.  Oh well.

Only ended up with 15 miles for the whole week - started this week out with a 14 mile run to our church softball game in Omaha (we lost...).

Found out that the Bobcat Trail Marathon in Glouster, Ohio is partnering with Vibram Five Fingers to implement a VFF category!  I am registering today-

Next race - Stampede for Steps 5k in Blair 7.31.10

After that - Lake Wehrspan 10k in Omaha 8.1.10


  1. Oh crap, competition in the VFF division.. :)

  2. I've been in the VFF (KSO Treks) off and on for most of this year. I don't have nearly the miles that you do in them. I think that I'm currently at less than 100 miles so far. But planning on running with them in the Bobcat Marathon (will be in the Master's Division - 41 yo). But, I have run two marathons in my Nike Free. So, the foot strength is pretty good. Just need to build up the toe strength a bit. A 7 miler I did on Sunday (my longest in the VFF) was a bit tough on the toes. But, no major pains the following day. Working my way up to 15+ miles in them hopefully before the Bobcat. If I can get up to 15 miles in the VFF, then I can finish 26.2.
