New Trail Shoes and Endless Spinning

I have added a new member to my Trail shoe collection. I've picked up a pair of La Sportiva Crosslite 2.0. I took them out for their first run yesterday at Harris Lake. Four miles of moderately technical trail and they felt great! I think we will be spending a lot of time together out on the trails!
 One of the other instructors at the gym is on vacation this week, so I have four spin classes to teach on my schedule. I taught last night, (75 minutes) another class this morning (60min) and have classes on Friday and Saturday morning. This is on top of my regular 3rd shift job. Then there is the little matter of fitting in my run training as well. Then did I mention one of my girls is tracked out of school? Good times. So today after class I got my butt on the treadmill for an easy three miles. Tomorrow is a six miler, then a 13.1 mile night trail run on Friday. then another 10 miler sometime over the weekend.There will be some serious power napping going on!  I will be monitoring the 'ole body closely. Hopefully I will not be feeling like this:

Or this........

I will be tapering next week in preparation for the Lake Hinson 24 Hour Run!

Now, where's my coffee???
