<p>About 3 hours on Saturday (hour, then a 10k race, the an hour+ in the evening).</p>
<p> </p>
<p>Long lazy treadmill run planned on Sunday while the football game is on, then maybe another hour on trails before bed.</p>

<p>I feel so non-extreme compared to most folks here!</p>
<p> </p>
<p>I put in a nice easy (slow) 4 hour run Saturday morning then spent the afternoon with my 4 year old daughter at the local gymnastics open house. Trampolines + tired legs = awkward. It's really fun to watch the kids play though.</p>
<p> </p>
<p>1 hour on the bike just tooling around and getting some blood circulating. Felt great. Next up, less-than-extreme car washing and less-than-extreme gingerbread-making (though it will have extreme-ginger!)</p>

<p>DE100. It is a deceptively very hard race. Only 6 people finished, it took me 32 hours. My feet are destroyed. 2nd female, 6th overall. My feet are beyond destroyed and i have one of the freakiest blisters anyone has ever seen. There were A LOT of very experienced runners that thought so! i am going to try get pictures.</p>

<p><span style="font-family:'trebuchet ms';"><span style="font-size:medium;">Nothing to extreme for me this weekend, I had my second (of this training) 20 mile run of my Marine Corp Marathon training.  I was nervous about this 20 miler because it was my marathon race pace test.  I started out 5 to 10 seconds slower then pace and picked it up for the last ten miles to finish in 2:39:59 (8:00 per mile pace).  My goal was 2:40:00.  So all in all a good run.  Hopefully I can break my marathon curse and run under 3:30:00 this year.</span></span></p>

<p>No trails for me last week...22.5 miles on the road Friday afternoon and 12 on Saturday morning.  Exchanged my chigger bites (which are still bad from the previous weekend), for a sunburn, but got it done. </p>

HOLY COW!!! way to go. You did awesome. And really overcame a very very very low point to reach a great finish. Timed races are totally crazy and a totally different beast of any other type of distance race. Thanks for sharing <img alt=":)" class="bbcode_smiley" src="http://files.kickrunners.com/smilies//smile.gif" title=":)"></p>

<p>Super good work, Shellerz! And a really incredibly good race report, too. Your writing about the finish, with just you and Jim, and no cheering crowds made me think about the essence of the sport we love. All that effort and training and the pain you experienced on race day and you are rewarded with a finisher's medal and the opportunity to just stop running. You deserve much more, but what you get is pure sport. Best of luck with your recovery, and we hope to be hearing more of your race reports in the future.</p>

I will try to get a race report done sometime this week <img alt=":)" class="bbcode_smiley" src="http://files.kickrunners.com/smilies//smile.gif" title=":)"></p>
<p> </p>
<p>Yeah, it looks like, on paper, that it would be easy, but almost all the runners there are really seasoned 100 milers, and they drop like flies. I cannot even put my finger on why it is so hard. I will say the road section is the boringest possible route you could ever ever ever imagine, but stuff like that does not bother me really. Not sure why everyone's feet were torn up either.</p>

<p>I had a nagging Achilles problem from Where's Waldo that wasn't quite healed.</p>
<p>I went as long as I could, but decided to drop. I think I could have finished, but not at what price body damage.</p>
<p> </p>
<p>Race started at 6:00am and it began to rain at 7:00am.</p>
<p>It continued to rain for over 24 hours.</p>
<p>I'm not talking drizzle, but mountain rain. My "water resistant" sports watch quite working after six hours.</p>
<p>The race had only a 54% finish rate.</p>
<p>While it was a difficult course, I think the rain played a primary role in the high percentage of drops.</p>

<p>Wow! That does not sound like fun 100 mile race weather by any means. Dropping due to achilles issues is smart to not cause more harm.</p>
