5 months and 2 days……
That is the time frame I have to get these legs ready to toe the line and finish the MMTR 50 mile Trail Race.
This is not news to you…. But what I am STILL working on is my training plan. A big thanks to SLB for taking the time to review it and offer suggestions on ways that I need to modify it. In a nut shell I have to add to an already heavy schedule of running. I did not build in near enough peak weeks of 50 to 70 mile running weeks. Since the MMTR race has an elevation gain/loss of 9200/7200 ft. I also need to make sure that hills are a big part of this training.
So that is on my task list to complete today!!
This week has been a recovery week for me. Not planned but since life seemed to get in the way it is just how it worked out. Still did plenty of cycling and swimming and managed to get smaller runs in but not nearly the distance I would have liked.
Tomorrow Scott and I with some other riders will tackle a 50 mile ride. The Ronald McDonald Charity ride is next week so this will be my last long ride before I tackle that 65 mile distance. Excited about this new unknown distance.
Now onto some planning……
