I see it’s been almost a month since I’ve updated.
I have been training, albeit pretty easy by cutting back on the miles a bunch, gonna do a half marathon next weekend before an intense 3 weeks of mileage building before my first 50K on June 3rd.
Been keeping it around 35 miles a week with the long runs of 13.1 on the actual course I’m running next Saturday. So far I’ve had two 2:23’s and a 2:19 on it, so I’m thinking a 2:10 would be a reasonable finish time. It’s got about 3,000 feet of elevation (2,984 exactly according to the race’s website. My altimeter has been giving readings of ~2,850). There’s one really intense climb starting at 8.5 miles that goes from ~550 feet to ~1600 in less than 2 miles.
That one will make or break my race.
