It is done!!
I am officially into the taper and after my monster numbers last week, I feel 100% confident going into my first 50K.
I’m working on a full weekly update but I wanted to share with all of you the fantastic weekend that I had. I originally had on the plan a 24 mile and 13 mile back to back weekend. Because of our schedule change I’ve been running my long runs on Sunday with my recovery run coming on Saturday. It has made it tougher to run the long run as the last day of the week but you have to get the miles in when you can right?? Like I said last week, I saw that I was planned for 66 total miles and I was going to challenge myself to go after 70 miles for the week. That means I changed my plans for the weekend to be a 15 mile and 26 mile back to back weekend.
All I can say is that I dominated this weekend!!
Saturday ended up being 15.5 miles with 1100 feet of elevation gain and an average pace of 9:49 min/mile.
Sunday ended up being 26.2 miles with 1400 feet of elevation gain and an average pace of 10:40 min/mile.
So for the week, I ended up with 72.5 miles and 7600 feet of elevation gain. WOW!!
Honestly I never thought that many miles in one week would be possible. I’m sure as all of us our runners, you know that feeling of pride and accomplishment that comes with such a big milestone. Honestly all I can say is that everything is coming together at the right time, my body feels amazing, and I’m looking forward to getting after it on race day.
How do you celebrate hitting a big milestone??
When was the last time you challenges yourself and pushed past your limitations
