My mind can't comprehend the idea of running 100 miles.

I have a hard time with it as well.  The farthest race this guy has ever done is a 50 miler (imposing in its own right), which is just about where I'll start off with him.  It'll also be about 3-4 in the morning, so he'll have run all night by himself before he picks up with me.  I want to be as helpful as possible when I'm with him, but it will be interesting

63 miles in June, I fucking suck
I should hit 108 or so this month, I suck slightly less.  Had a good track workout last night. http://app.strava.com/activities/172974891

Had a race on Saturday, the third time I've done this particular half: http://app.strava.com/activities/175239387

Two years ago, it was my very first half.  It was hot as hell and I twisted my ankle badly on a downhill.  Last year, I was a month out from my marathon and the weather was perfect.  I took it easy and finished in 2:03 or so.  This year, I'm not quite as far along as I was fitness-wise and it was humid and super muddy on the trails, but I thought I ran a pretty solid race at 2:07.  The person that won ran a 1:15, which is mind boggling, considering the mud.

I also got to finally meet the guy I'm going to be pacing in the 100.  I finished ahead of him by about 10 minutes, so at least my fear of not being able to keep up with him at the 100 was probably unfounded.

Got a new toy over the weekend.  I wasn't happy with a number of things about my Forerunner220 and there was no risk with REI's return policy, so I swapped it for an Ambit2R.  And of course there are immediately some things I don't like about it either, but the accuracy seems to be a lot better.  It creates cool graphs on their website, too.  My wife says I'll never be happy with a watch and she's probably right.

Anyways, here's last night's workout at the local track.  800m warmup, 1000x5 @ <7:45 pace, 400m rests.  Beautiful evening for a run, kind of breezy, cool, sprinkling rain.  The high school football team was practicing on the infield.  A sure sign of being old is that I'm pretty sure it was the varsity team but they all looked like they were 12.

Aw, I get an error page.

My Forerunner 210 lost signal twice last Saturday on my 11 miler. The second time I was in an area without any real cover, so I was pretty upset it didn't at least get my entire return trip back to my car. And lately it's been messing up my location in general. I've been considering another watch as well, but I really don't know if I want to pay for that right now. Bleh.

I've never had my watch lose signal after it had already acquired it, with either my 210 or 220.  When was the last time you rebooted it?  I would get a situation where it took awhile to find a satellite, said it had one, and then never actually started tracking me when I got running.  Rebooting it helped.

I last did a hard reset fairly recently actually after I let the battery die.

I'm convinced sometimes it loses me for a bit during my regular runs too, but instead of losing it completely it just updates my pacing wildly. This morning, it told me I jumped from 12' pace to a 7:30 pace then back all while running on someone's lawn. Or maybe my legs are really that bad at judging perceived effort.

Was on vacation, missed a couple runs, but got this one in along the rail trail near where we were staying.  Longest run since my marathon last fall

I finished my third marathon about 6 weeks ago and ran a 16 miler a few weeks after that.  They were both terrible.  I'm not registered for any races right now until like September so I've started going back to my local Crossfit gym, which I love.

I'm still fat.
