It's been a busy day. First off I slept late so that didn't help any. Anyway, around 1100 or so I took off from the house headed out to 1585. I didn't really know what my plans were but I took two handbottles with Accelerade and my trail pack with a bunch of gels and some S-caps. I ended up running a nice round 20 miles. By the end of it I was wasted. I went out way too hard but at the time I didn't know that I was going to run that far plus I had a good strong headwind in my face for the first half. I knew I needed to run that kind of distance but that's different. ha About 2 miles from the house, I had to get off the shoulder because a dipshit driver was blocking the way and I had to detour into a cotton field. Well, with the kind of rain that we've been having........I was COVERED in shitloads of mud. It was fun but really made my legs heavy because I had a couple of pounds on each shoe and up the backs of both legs. Oh, well! Anyway, so I will take tomorrow off since I have to head back to Hobbs. I will get a couple of decent runs in this weekend and then maybe a 15 miler or so on Tuesday which is my day off. We'll see how it goes.

Sounds like a ton of fun. I wish I had the time to put in 20-milers during the week to free up time for the kids on the weekends.
Well done.

Working 12 hr shifts makes the difference. More days off during the week. My wife works Mon-Fri 9-5 and has no time for anything.
