Ok I'll admit it, I am starting to freak a bit about the 50k. I have put in plenty of miles, but I don't think enough (and not as many as Disney). I have put in lots of trail miles, but wish I could have put in more. I think, well it is only another 5 miles on top of a marathon. Then I think, well things usual get tough at about 21-23, which means I have to suffer like that for 8-10 miles. Oh goody, just 11 more days of this...

Legs were fatigued from the start and never got better. Feeling residual from Saturday's race more than I thought. Really all my 20+ runs during this training cycle (I think there have been 6) have been pretty uninspiring. Although when I think about it none have been on fresh legs. They all came a day after (or in this case two days after) a 10-15 mile session. That strategy paid off for Disney and I'm hoping it pays off for Northface. Good news about this run, is it was not some epic blow up. While I did slow down on way back, it was just simple fatigue.

Pre race warm up (1.5) couple trips to and from car and then .5 run back to the car post race.

Run #2
  • 1h 43m 51s
  • 13.10 miles
  • 07m 55s /Mi

Not a PR, but not bad. Felt this was more a math problem than a fitness problem. Started out very comfortable pace (32:04 after 4 miles) Then sped up, but apparently not enough. Once I got to 10 realized it was going to be tough to PR, pushed the pace some more, but not enough race left.
results: 72 out 457 overall and 9 out of 29 for old guy (45-49) division.

  • RACE DAY: Lake Country Half Marathon
Ok I just realized that tomorrow is only 2 weeks from my 50k run through the woods. Everytime I think about it my stomach gets jumbly. Some time because I really excited, some times because I am scared. I think it will be fun...but it will hurt too.

started this very late (9:40pm) after taking care of all I had to take care of. Pleasant, but too late to get to bed in a timely manner.
