Finally Friday!

It's been a relatively short week for me since i got home Tuesday night. From this weekend out, skiing might just be the weekend and not into the work week since there are no more holidays. I still go up on Tuesdays though.  I have a client today but that's it. Probably won't work out but I might get more motivated.  My legs are tired from all the skiing and then class yesterday.  Any fun plans for the weekend?

I'm going to guess that this reply was for me....I hate how we can't reply to a specific post anymore. Anyway, yes, dh does a few ultra's every year. He used to run marathons and decided that running on hard surfaces was beating him up too much so he switched to ultra's which here are run on dirt trails, mostly in the mountains but sometimes in the desert. The 50K is in mid-March and will be a "training run" for a 100 miler in early June. He has signed up for the 100 a couple of times before but got hurt during training and had to withdraw. It looks like he has finally figured out what causes him to get hurt (speed work and running up hills) and has eliminated those from the training this time, and so far so good. Although last year he injured something while running mountain "goat trails" in the snow so he couldn't see the footing, sometimes its just (not using) common sense but the whole concept of ultras defies common sense in my book LOL.

My "support" role is mostly making sure that we have the right food in the house and his running clothes are washed; and if he isn't carpooling to a race then I'll go to the finish to drive him home.

It's not intuitive but I figured out, by accident, at one point that if you click on the title for the post, it takes you to the post that was replied to.  We don't see the threading so it's a pain but we can respond to an individual post.

Now that I've read your response, I think we have talked about your husband's ultras. Good luck to him on his 100 miles!  I can't imagine that.  I was talking to some people about someone who did one and was 18 miles out. We were saying it would be tough to do that much and not finish but it's still 18 miles!
