Desperately Seeking Advice

Today for my 44 I did a single arm lateral raise with a leg lift while on a stability ball.  (It’s not as complicated as it sounds!!)

After I finished 44 I had to switch arms and legs and repeat.

Screen shot 2013-10-07 at 8.43.51 PMI don’t have a clue about how to approach the race that I’m doing this weekend.  I know when packet pick-up and the race briefing are and that it starts at 6:00 pm Saturday night.

Not a clue what the point of these is and since you can’t pick them back up till after 10:00 am on Sunday  (16 hours after the start) and I’m hoping to be home in bed by then, I think I will just skip this step.

Still not a clue about what is going to work here!!!  I’m just going back to my high school track days!!! Screen shot 2013-10-07 at 8.57.51 PMScreen shot 2013-10-07 at 8.58.37 PM

I prefer to run in the morning and I never eat before or during my runs so I sort of hate changing it up a lot. 

Pacing –  After a lot of trial and error with my training, I think I’m going to go with a 4:1 run/walk effort.  As much as I would like to run the entire distance, I’m afraid if I don’t start off smart then I will have a repeat of my 44 miles!!!

My main plan is to just show up and run until I’m done – 50 miles!!!

Not sure how great my plan is so please share any tips, advice, hints, words of wisdom, experience or jokes that you have – all will be much appreciated!!!

Happy Tuesday!!
