Full loop of mountain bike/horse trail on West side of Lapham peak with a little extra thrown in. Felt great. A perfect way to spend a Sunday Morning.

Great Luck to all my friends doing IMMOO today. Has become a bit of a bummer day for me, as it was something I had as a goal, but now that time has past. However, as I run these trails I look forward to new adventures!

8 on glacier trail and about 5 on Ice age trail to Lapham peak.

Originally was thinking I was going to do all this on trail. However, remembered that Instep trail marathon/half marathon was going on and wanted to steer clear of that. So I took Glacier trail to Ice age and did cross over the race course a few times. At point this year I had thought about running the 1/2 as a warm up for next weekend. That probably would have been a smart idea, but this worked out fine. Was pretty humid and warm. I started out quite sluggish, but felt better as the run went and finished pretty strong and negative split by about 2 minutes. While not a huge confidence boost, it make me feel good to finish strong. Wore com[ression sleeves, as I'm thinking about racing with them next weekend. Nothing that happened today, makes me think that would be a bad idea. Also experimented with Nuun tablet in water as an alternative to Gatoraid. Also positive results from that.

Awesome. Was going to go to track to do my speed session, but there was a football game. My 13 year old had decided to come with. I said, why don't we go to trail and she wanted to run. She ran the whole thing and this is at least a mile longer than she has ever gone. I am way proud of her!

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.
