Felt good today - loose(r) and a more flowy stride. Nice progress. That being said, I decided to end the racing season (other than a turkey trot w/ my family) and skip the big ones still on the schedule - RnR Vegas 1/2 and Cal International Marathon.

The potential outcomes of another short block of training and races are...

-Run fast, come out unscathed [nearly impossible]
-Run fast, prolong / worsen hamstring injury [somewhat possible]
-Run slow, come out unscathed [possible]
-Run slow, prolong / worsen hamstring injury [probable]

I don't feel good about those odds. I'm going to have the chance to run some great races this upcoming winter/spring, but I need to fix my hamstring so I can fully capitalize on those opportunities. I'll work on rehabbing and just stick to easy running for another month or two, then start the long ramp-up to a spring marathon once I feel balanced and uncompromised. When talking about my top choice for a spring marathon last week, a good friend and supporter ended a message with "Get yourself ready!"... simple advice... and squeezing out another marathon isn't the way to do that.

AM - 9 miles from our campsite on the Temple Mountain Road (near Goblin Valley). Spent the rest of the day hiking in Crack Canyon and exploring the swell.


This run/road goes high on the all-time list.
