How did we get through week 10 already?!? This ultramrathon will be here before I know it. I am looking forward to putting in some big millage weeks at the end of the month and hopefully that will be enough. With all that here is how week 10 went down:
Monday: Day off of work means time on the trails! 14.5 mile trail run at Picture Rock in Lyons. Awesome new trail.
Tuesday: Walk with pups
Wednesday: 4.5 mile run around local lake
Thursday: 1.5 mile walk around city park (start of mini taper)
Friday: 2 mile run with Winston
Saturday: 2.5 mile hike while monitoring prairie dogs
Sunday: 26.47 mile Leadville Highest Marathon (race report coming soon) Furthest I have ever ran at one time =)
Total miles ran or hiked: 52.5 miles
Total hours training: 14:46
This week was interesting since I had Monday off of work for labor day. Even though I had raced a half marathon (Breck Crest) on Sunday and was racing a marathon that weekend, I couldn’t give up the chance to try out a new trail. So it wasn’t the best marathon taper ever. A lot of plans call for a three week taper but this wasn’t an A race so I mainly “trained through” and I definitely didn’t feel completely fresh on Sunday, but that may have also been the 10-11 thousand foot elevation. Next couple of weeks am traveling for a work conference, while it’s a lot of fun there isn’t a lot of down time. I am hoping to get as much running in as possible. Anyone know any great routes running distance from Disney?
That is CRAZY that a marathon is part of your training for the 50K. I mean, I get it, but it’s still crazy. Rockstar!! Can’t wait to hear about the race. I don’t know my way around Anaheim very well, but I know that you can run around the boarder of the Disney parks for several miles. My husband and I did a 6 mile run and only did a smaller loop. I’m sure that you could do a couple larger loops if you are going for distance. It’s a pretty safe area to run too!
