This week I'm gearing up for the Psycho Psummer 50k trail race. By gearing up I mean trying to hydrate like a boss and not much else. I'm running a whopping 10 miles total this week before the race so hopefully my legs will be super rested. This will be my 3rd year running the race and as usual I feel under prepared. Overall I think I'm in better shape than I was the previous 2 years but I never get the number or distance of long runs in that I would like. I might be overly confident but I think I be fine. The course is three 10.3mile laps around a lake. Really just have to run the first 2 laps, 3rd lap is all mind over matter, no biggie.
Today I did a 5 mile run testing out my race day outfit and gear. Didn't really have time to go to an actual trail to run so just ran down the street. I ran pavement in trail shoes, so ridiculous but I had yet to run in the shoes so it had to happen. Just need to buy some good socks.
I run by this sign all the time. It looks like a mile marker sign in a race but it says donuts, so confusing. I like to pretend I'm in a race every time I see it.
Race day outfit and gear minus the watch and socks. I coordinated my bra and hydration pack with my shoes. So pleased with myself for this. Obviously today on my test run I added a tank top, my neighborhood is too sketchy to be running in just a sports bra.
