Since the Fire on the Mountain Trail 50k
was postponed a week due to winter arriving last week I won't bore you with another goal post.
You can go HERE and read it again to refresh your memory.
Even with one less week between the 50k and the 50 miler I won't really change my goals. I will run the 50k with the thought in mind of putting in a solid effort until I get to about half way. At that point I'll see how I have done on the "unpracticed half." If I am doing well and feeling strong I will try to negative split the course knowing the second half is "easier" technically and I should be able to make better time. Then at about 8ish miles to go when I leave the logging "roads" and go into the single track again I will make the call to give it everything for that PR or cruise in for a solid training run.
p.m run 6.5 miles ~ Day # 543
I've been feeling the weight of all the issues I've got going on right now. The stress level has reached yoga-unremovable levels. I knew I had to do something that would help give my mind a break.
Did I crack open a cold one?
Did I open a good book?
Did I pop a little pill?
Did I hide under the bed?
of course not
I went running....
in the dark....
under the stars...
