Yesterday was motivating enough to finally get me out the door for a run. I went full Norwegian for this nighttime run, not only my clothing but also the use of a reflective vest and a headlamp. Pretty sure that's a first for me in Tucson.

I've been in a bit of a training lull, thanks in part to a stupid number of responsibilities, but also because I just haven't felt like I was training for anything in particular. I think I need to get myself signed up for a winter/spring ~50k to get my butt back in gear.

Strength/Core 30:00 [1]

Stopped by the rainwater harvesting workshop at neighbor Gontran's house in the morning with Lukas. We didn't stay very long (an hour?) but we met people and learned a bit about the project. I moved a lot of mulch, and Lukas did a fair amount of tamping and socializing.

Afterwards Lukas and I headed out to Colossal Cave to volunteer at one of the aid stations for the Colossal-Vail 50 mile race. Lukas' main task was ringing the bell as every runner arrived and left, but he also made sure to taste test the food, especially the oreos and the bacon.

We headed to the finish area to watch Robin & Lori finish the 55k (which didn't get up to our aid station) and also conveniently meant that we saw orienteering Alan finish, just a few minutes later. Super motivating to watch these folks do these things.

To campus. I was going to try the free bike valet on the mall (short walk from my office) today but when I got there it didn't seem to be open. Don't know if this is a covid thing or an end-of-semester thing, or whether someone was just taking a bathroom break. I'll try again another day.

Strength/Core 45:00 [1]

Final yard work for phase 1 of our big project. I had to work today so I didn't do that much, just some shoveling and spreading of rocks and mulch for an hour. Emma and her helpers did most of it!

Now we have to figure out whether we can get gutters to go where we want to go, and if so, figure out how to move a large shed in order to make room for a tank, outdoor shower, and composting toilet.

WOG! This was one of those evenings when just having people to run with made all the difference. Didn't feel like running at all, but ran to WOG to at least do that. Then I didn't feel like doing the workout, but I started the workout because I could run with friends, at a slightly easier pace. Then I really didn't have intention of finishing the workout, I was just going to peel off and run home after 1 rep, but I felt pretty good so I kept going. And finished the workout at a strong pace.

Ran to WOG
4x strides
3x1mi cutdowns, 3' easy in between
Ran home

Ran the workout with Michael, Catie, and a woman whose name I really should know by now. Miles were about 8:50, 8:30, 7:50, so the first two were pretty conversational and only the last one was pushing it a bit. Still, getting in a 7mi run with a bit of work is infinitely better than not running at all. #takethewin

I remember talking to the reporter for this article but I never heard anything afterwards! I think this article is somewhere in the middle on the scale of hurts-helps the sport. (Unless you believe that all publicity is good publicity, in which case I'm not sure what to think, since it's been out for over four months and nobody's read it!)
