The Countdown Is On

4 weeks.  4 weeks of training left til I am at my 12 in 12.  I'm going hard.  Not that I've really been slacking all along.  And not that I've phoned in any races.  But this is what coaches would call an 'A' race. 

Two weeks of hard tempo and speed workouts, two weeks of taper.  Today abs and core workout and I'm going to start the Insanity.  Shaun T is gonna be my new BFF.  I want the best body of my life in 60 days.  ; )

I'm not gonna lie.  I want a 4 hour finish this race.  Wait, I want a 3:59:59.  It's haunted me this past year.  One way or another I will be crying on May 21st.  This next four weeks is gonna be intense.  Crazy.  And with the help of my new bff...insane.

Let's do this.

  2. You are awesome! 3:59:59!!! You will get it. I have loved reading your blog. Once you have completed your goal of 12 in 12 you should come and do the Logan Peak Ultra with me. It is 28 miles, so not too much farther than 26.2. June 25th

  4. You're definitely going sub-4 on this one. I'm in awe of the fact that you're on the verge of completing the dozen. I would be physically broken in so many different ways by this point. Kick some butt over the next month, and own that race. I'll be cheering for you from afar.
