Out of Step–Trying to find my rhythm

Aloha Everyone,

I am guessing that a few of you have visited the site to check the results/outcome from my weekend of racing here on Oahu. I am sorry to say that I am not racing either the Tantalus Triple or the Runner’s HI 20k this weekend. I am still trying to find my rhythm again after not feeling well for a majority of the summer. Over the past few weeks, I have been running about 4 days a week and I still find myself sleeping at least 10 hours a night. On Friday, I actually felt decent on a run for the first time in quite a while. I am going to try and be patient and get myself back to running everyday as I attempt to best prepare myself for the rest of 2012.

I am planing on running the Noble Canyon 50k in San Diego in 3 weeks. I would like to be able to get in about 150-160 miles between now and then with a trip or 2 up tantalus and one long run. The race plan will probably revolve around running patient. The first half of the race is rolling and primarily downhill. Then we turn around and run back up the canyon. I am looking forward to a fun weekend. I am also looking forward to the Noble Canyon race because I get the opportunity to catch up with some friends that live in San Diego in addition to a post-race feast at Phil’s BBQ.

On another note…I want to wish my friend Kent good luck at the upcoming Rock n Roll Marathon in Denver on September 22. Kent and I run together every once in a while here in Honolulu. He has really turned a major corner in his training and I am really excited to see the results. Kent is a very patient runner, so I anticipate that he will be fine at the altitude of Denver. Good Luck Kent!

Thanks for all the support! I hope I can write a few positive weekly updates in between now and Noble Canyon.

Happy Running and Go Hogs!
