I'm definitely in recovery mode this week with no running on the schedule. I've got to baby this weak hamstring. I'll be doing some cross training as well as a session with my trainer, Zack. Haven't seen that guy for a couple weeks. I'm sure he misses me... ; )
So this weekend I'm looking forward to The Dirty Dash! It's Utah's first mud run. You might remember that earlier in the summer I had the opportunity to do a preview of the course, check it out here. They only had a few of the obstacles set up that day but it was still a blast. I can only imagine what Saturday will bring! The same organizers just did the race up in Boise, Idaho this past weekend. Instead of a song today, I thought it'd be fun to have a sneak peek at one of the obstacles on the course would be... (Forward in a minute or so to get to the action.)
I know you all want to come and do the slip n slide this weekend! Anyone done a race like this before?The organizers have promised more mud for the race this weekend and I'm counting on it! I have a team of 5 girls that will run the course together - I'm pretty sure we're going to need each other to get through. We are 'The Piggtales'! I'm currently working on what costumes we'll be wearing - outfits that we don't mind getting ruined. Any suggestions? : )
So my training tip for today... Get out there and do something fun! Find a race, event or activity that you're doing just for kicks. Something you won't stress out about getting a PR or covering a certain distance. The Dirty Dash will be just that for me this week. Out there, in nature, spending time with friends, doing something crazy and not worrying about finishing with an exact goal. I'm so excited!
