|Can you tell where ultra training started? (Week of Thanksgiving)|
Miles Run - A.JILLION. I thought I rocked it last month? This month, with only 29 days, was HUGE for me. I completed 6 runs of 20 miles or longer, for a total of 277.71 miles. That's the equivalent of TWO REALLY GOOD MONTHS for me in normal training.
Races Run - 2 (1 half marathons, 1 marathon)
PR's Set - Zero. But I feel good about the half I ran, and the marathon I ran was only two days after running 20 miles, I treated it as a training run (since I had a 24 and 30 miler to run only 4 days after), and the marathon was super hilly & hard and still only about 7 minutes off a PR. Not bad at all.
Minutes of Plank - 96
What's on the agenda for March? Well, I ran my last "long" run today (March 1) of 25 miles. I am officially in three weeks of "taper" for my 100 Miler. What does a taper look like for a race like that? I only have two double digit runs left. One is RnR NoLA this weekend, the other is a hilly, sorta local half I'll run next weekend. Other than that, I have only SEVEN runs left, and they are all 6 miles or less. So less than TEN runs before I will be toeing the line at a race that I can only imagine will be the scariest event of my life.
