Getting it Together

As the clock continues to count down I continually think in the back of my mind that I should be training or working out or something! Over the past 3 weeks things have been good and I can't complain but it just seems like I should be doing more but that may be asking for trouble.

My leg has had no problems and my body feels good with the running. I only have to complain about the Heat that Vegas is still getting and even getting out early still finds temps in the low-mid 80's and by the time I'm done running its like 90* or 103* for example like it was Saturday. (sorry Formualic for not waking up due to not charing my cell phone/alarm clock)

Anyway, as I continue to work each day on the running plan I am thinking that I need to really build up some leg strength. I need this strength for the massive amounts of power hiking I am going to have to do at HURT. My problem is I have not seen a good place to insert "leg day" so I have been procrastinating but I know that is only hurting myself.

On another note, I just recently bought these:

Montrail Mountain Masochists. I have not run in them yet but am excited to try them out and see what's up. They definitely feel different than road shoes!

And I want to send out a HUGE CONGRATULATIONS to Sweet Baboo for finishing Leadville in 27 hours 35 mins!! You are AWESOME!!

Thanks dude! Keep up the good training. Those look like sweet shoes. I actually just changed my kicks just before Leadville and they worked great.
