So ready...

A little snow on the mountains and the Giants in the World Series means Fall is upon us and I'm ready to go. I don't have a "weekly summary" to speak of because I've been "resting" and working on the road trying to wrap up some projects. The lack of trail time seems to cloud all other activities as the refreshment and "re-creation" of training and events is lost. The rest period is healthy but I'm feeling over-rested now and I'm really itching to get back to the discipline.

I did manage a little time last weekend on the Pole Line Trail at South Lake Tahoe and followed that up with a lap on the Carson River and another near home on the Emma Quarry Trail. But 11 miles a week has left me ready for some miles.

My target is the Buffalo 100 in late March, to which I've added the focus of trying to break 24 hours. I will soon be concentrating on getting some more speed which will actually mean more efficient endurance. I will be testing myself in some shorter events (10Ks, etc.) to keep the competitive blood flowing and gain some tempo over longer distances and times.

The new season starts now.
