04/20/2014 – Sunday
25.8 mile, 9:18, 8450′ – Yakima Skyline Rim 50k
Nope, 50k is not 25.8 miles. 50k is 31 miles. The day started great. Beautiful weather. Beautiful scenery. Beautiful run. Day ended less great and not how I planned it to end.

Weekly running time: 9:18
Weekly running miles:
 28.8
Weekly running vertical gain: 8450′

Some weeks and some runs you have it. Other times you don’t. This was a don’t have it week and don’t have it run. Disappointing. Reflect. Learn. Rest. Recover. Prepare.

Sunflower Marathon in 3 weeks, although I’m more than positive it’ll be a glorified training run to get back in the groove.
