Spike Search

I have to find a new pair of cross spikes and get them on my feet a couple of times before December 8th. I have an idea which ones I'm looking for so hopefully I can accomplish the task by weekends end. (I lost my old pair to the flood in June...)

My training is going well and really nothing too crazy. I just started adding some light, faster work to my week in hopes it get's me fit enough to crank out some decent splits on the course in KY. I have felt myself taking a leap in fitness so it must be working. Volume is on the low side but I plan to progress a bit this next week as long as my hamstring wants to play along nicely. Thursday is the Gobble Gallop 5k and I may sit this one out. I have a bad feeling about cranking out a fast 5k on a cool, slippery morning. Now, if its balmy like last year and no ice, I may toe the line...
