After the completion of the 2010 Space Coast Marathon I felt pretty good. However, for some reason I was not as hungry as normal and this caused a little drop in my energy as well as my weight. I got back on track over the weekend, so it shouldn’t take much to get back. Also, something new after this marathon was a little pain in my hips. Nothing serious, but I am paying attention none the less and that is why I ran so slow on Sunday.
Well, now it is time to focus on the next goal. I am excited about running my first 100 mile ultra in February, and all of my training over the next 2.5 months will be toward that. I will be doing the Iron Horse Endurance Run again, but will shoot for the 100 mile this year. I am totally pumped to get my mileage up in the 70’s and 80’s, but will be doing it safely with 10% increases.
The temps have dropped a great deal here in Florida, so the extra miles should not be as much of an issue as in the summer when it is 90 degrees.

Are you planning to do IronHorse again?
Yes, I will be doing the Iron Horse again, but will do the full 100 this year.
