Training is not so bad when beer is involved.

I did not have a training trail race this weekend, so I went to a brewery.  My training is going well, I think.  I really will not know until I finish the 50K in two weeks.  This upcoming week I have a 25K that almost retired me last year.  I am on pace to get 200 miles this month.  I have had some soreness in my hips and knee, so I trying to find out if I am going to far too soon.  A coach in my running group said I needed to take 48 hours off from running and give my body some rest.  It was hard after finding some new routes on different trails.  FB_IMG_1568332004900.jpgCrazy look on Big Cedar TrailFB_IMG_1568332022022.jpgRunning on Big Cedar trail and taking sharp turnsFB_IMG_1568332106336.jpgView of Joe Pool Lake from the trails of Cedar Hill State ParkFB_IMG_1568332116716.jpgWoodsy section of Cedar Hill SPFB_IMG_1568332101621.jpgPrairie part of Cedar Hill SPFB_IMG_1568332165232.jpgStill a forest in Cedar Hill SP

I decided to use my 48hrs off by going to a semi local brewery.  I really like this place after one visit.  The selection of beer is just enough to cover all the bases but not overwhelming.  The atmosphere was laid back but enough noise to be interesting.  I, of course, got the hefeweizen and it was fantastic. My favorite was the John Hancock Lager.  It is a dark and smooth lager that was very drinkable.  They also had a small BBQ stand inside the biergarten which was nice.  They had board games and plenty of TVs so we were thoroughly entertained for hours.20190914_172007.jpgOutside20190914_172903.jpgInside20190914_172854.jpgMy first flight20190914_180514.jpgBBQ sandwich with a John Hancock20190914_185408.jpgMy wife beating me in Star Wars trivia.

I did kick her butt in checkers 3x.  I am now back to more serious training with just six weeks left till the 100K.  Nothing better than a trails and ales break.
