|Thankfully, much dirtier now.|
Thus, any lingering thoughts about running Mt. Disappointment 50K as my first race back were gone not too long after. I am however still committed to running Noble Canyon 50K next month. With that goal in mind, I will dedicate a few solid weeks of training to run it and run it well. I've just started infusing some tempo-type workouts this past week as my leg speed has slowed significantly during this base-building period. There may be more races added to the calendar but until I'm 100% my left foot can handle the stress, will proceed cautiously.
That's about it in terms of my running update. Will try to make it a point to update more frequently, especially as my running load increases.
