Between a little bit of travel, the presidential debates, college football, 1st grade soccer, 7th grade volleyball, and work, I took the week off from running last week. It's the first week since 1/1/08 that I did not run at all. Illogically, I felt like 9 months of consistent base building was draining by the minute ...
But back to business. My beloved Longhorns and QB Colt McCoy are holding up so far, now 5-0 and ranked #5. Sweaty palms and churning stomachs are about to explode this weekend. It's the annual TX-ou weekend in Dallas, with ou ranked #1. National Championship is there for the taking, if we can deliver the goods, yet the road ahead is no cream puff schedule. Our next four consecutive games:
Oct 11 #1 Oklahoma (5-0)
Oct 18 #3 Missouri (5-0)
Oct 25 #17 Oklahoma State (5-0)
Nov 1 #7 Texas Tech (5-0)
Combined record of our next four opponents ... (20-0) ... gulp. If we lose, I'm going for a very very long run.
