We're heading to Lake Tahoe for the 4th of July weekend. We drove most of the way yesterday evening, after E. picked me up after work. Today we drive the final 2 1/2 hours of this 8-9 hour trip. Whew.
I still have to deal with some work stuff this morning, unfortunately. But I hope to be at the lake by early afternoon, and will finally get to run after having several days off.
By the way: I have a new online running coach. She's an amazing runner and triathlete and a very good coach. She's gotten a number of folks to qualify for Boston - my raison d'etre for signing up with her - and many of her runners and triathletes place very well in races.
I only started a couple of weeks ago with Debi - and while my running has been on-again/off-again - I'm hoping to buckle down and get to business. First order of business: run an 8K or a 10K race on July 4 with a heart-rate monitor so she can get my readings and base a better training plan on them.
The 10K I'm planning to race will be at high altitude - so I'm hoping that won't screw up the heart rate monitor readings. And I hope that the race will still be on - it's still quite smoky in northern California, and race organizers canceled the nearby Western States 100-Mile Endurance Run.
