Well, another week is behind me for running and only a few more weeks till #TeamGuzman hits the routes of the Reach the Beach Relay. While the running week for me ends on Saturday, I will say that I got out on the RTB route this morning for a nice run though as I tweeted, I lacked motivation! Perhaps that is from climbing Mt Attitash yesterday which has left sore or perhaps just the fact I am on vacation and should be relaxing.
The goal for the few the next weeks for me is simple: train for the RTB, stay healthy and continue to contemplate if marathons are in my future. For the training end, I will do some hills and sprints to increase my overall pace; in terms of staying healthy, nothing major in terms of challenge in regards to my running that could lead to injury; and finally am I cut out to run a marathon? For an answer to that, I need to do some more thinking on the topic.
Honestly I would love to run 50 halfs in 50 states but perhaps they is not possible. So then my goal is to find great halfs to run whether it is big sur in California or the wine country halfs in the same locale. There are extreme halfs that occur in the Midwest and then there are some that occur in locations such as the Florida keys and Disney that add a family vacation element to them. All in between this, perhaps I aim for the Boston Marathon as well. But I would need to qualify so that will need to be explored.
Anyhow, enough random thoughts. Let's get to the pics of the last week
