Actual didn't feel too well this morning. Thank goodness for the several outhouses on this route because I needed ev-er-y one of them! On the bright side of things, I won't have to spend any money on Golytely this month...

I followed the schedule pretty close but as you can see I skipped out on 1/2 of the last 50K effort but the cumulative 50K effort was close to what was prescribed. I still felt strong in the end so I'm hopeful for a strong finish in Miwok. Roger Stones met me about 1/2 way through the workout so he pushed me to a finish strong - thanks Roger! It was kinda nice to have some company for a change.
