End of month check in, and news, and new goals.
√ 200 miles (218)
√ 5000m D+ (5999)
√ Bounding (just once, though)
- Not getting injured surfing, other than a thigh bruise
√ Not a lot of yoga, more stretching, but blew through 1000 push up / sit ups this week
√ No 20 mile run, will blame the first May in SD history where every day topped 70˚
- Did not run to the InNOut
Some news: I have a repatriation plan. Flying back to Boston on Monday the 8th, bought a seat in F, wearing a mask, etc, etc. Heading up to Maine probably Sunday the 14th, when my family leaves, then isolating there until they come up the next weekend (which would be 13 days since my flight). Then Maine for the foreseeable future. Office closed until Sept at the earliest, good enough Internet there now to work from home (DSL better than advertised!).
So with that noted, goals for June:
* 200 miles of running. Will be some on trails. With shade.
* 10km D+. Maine is easier than here for D+, with mountains. (There are mountains here, but no shade, and the nearby trails are busy.)
* Bounding: lots, and easier, because the camp road is good for bounding.
* 1500 push ups and sit ups. This is very attainable if I keep my mind to it.
* Run to InNOut before I leave California
* Keep up with the last runner standing, meaning a 20 miler by EOM.
* Ride a metric century, prepare for a century in July.
* Mark out and start building a camp running trail.
Some more details …
* Plans for trails in Maine (I'm not supposed to leave Maine, but NH trails might be enticing, and I'm not going to catch crona out in the woods) are to go where they ain't, when they ain't. So Tumbledown on a weekend afternoon? Nosireebob. Tumbledown on a weekday morning before work? Sure, why not.
* Believe it or not my longest ever day on a bike was about 70 miles back in 2017. On an mtb biking down to the 3 Floyds Brewery from Chicago and back (the next year I did a slightly shorter ride on a 1970s Schwinn Varsity). But I'll have my road bike in Maine and lots of time, so no reason why 100 miles can't happen. I've mapped out some nice routes up there, probably starting with a 65 mile ride with really not much climbing on almost entirely back (non-state) roads.
* More hours! I'm getting in miles right now, but with only roads to run on, feel like it's hard to ramp up much/any more to avoid injury. Would love to mix in trails, bikes and rollerskiing while still running 40-50 miles each week.
* Got the idea to build some trails around camp, creating a loop and connecting over to some ski trails at the nearby school. Because having a 5 mile trail run out the door would be pretty darned nice.
