Weight workouts

Yesterday afternoon, I did a lower body weight workout - front squats, back squats, alternating rear lunges and lateral squats. I'm not as beat up as I was after the same workout last Thursday, which is good because I increased the weights yesterday.

This morning, I did bent over alternating DB rows, incline DB presses, BB corner presses, BB corner rows, 50 push-ups and 50 inverted push-ups (which are really a form of pull-up).

Tomorrow, my wife and I will do an easy 8 miler together. We are both planning a fall 50 miler (I don't know what she's thinking, but I'm not going to dissuade her), so we'll do a lot of weekend training together for the next few months. My race is a month before hers, but mine is also easier (Maine Track Club vs. Stone Cat trail race - road vs. trail), and I'm already sort of in ultra shape, so my wife has the most work ahead of her.

Sunday is supposed to be beautiful, so I'll do something - probably ride and rock climb, which I think I mentioned yesterday.

Your wife is planning a 50 mile trail race? Has she done this sort of thing before? I don't remember hearing about that.

She's run 3 marathons, two of them on trails. She's more of a lifter and rock climber than a runner, but she says she wants to do it. I don't know if she really thinks she'll finish 50 at Stonecat. It's a 12.5 mile loop and I think her realy goal is 3 loops, not all 4.
