No Clever Title Today

Sorry that I have been neglecting reading your blogs and commenting the last few days, there just doesn’t seem to be enough time in a day.

Less than two weeks now before my 80K/49.7M ultra. I’m kind of nervous, but at the same time very excited about the race.

I just figured out that I ran 83K/52M last week, the highest mileage week for the last couple months. The last time I ran this far in one week my legs were pudding by the end of the week, but this morning my legs feel really good! I attribute this to the slower speed and walk breaks during my long runs. I think the walking yesterday also helped loosen up all the muscles and joints.

Tonight I want to run my normal 14K/8.7M loop. It is supposed to be 30C/86F outside, so I want to make sure I get out there and run in the sun before it gets even hotter! I hope it won’t be so warm for my ultra, but on the other side I want to train as much as possible in the heat beforehand – just in case.

Have a great week!

Surely it won't be too hot for your race, it being a nightrun.

Good work on getting up at 4 am on a Saturday - that's not something I would consider doing, and I'm an early riser.
 
If your legs feel really good it means that you are on the right way for a good 80k. I hope that the weather will help you to finish a good race.
 
The titles are always the hardest for me. It sounds to me like you are ready for your race - two weeks is right around the corner.
 
You had a great and solid training past weekend, I have no doubt you'll do awesome in a race. Very smart to scout the course so much, that been a night run especially.
 
You amaze me Jack. Wow, 83K! You'll do stupendous and become my new hero! :)

How long have you been training for this race?
 
strong week for you, jack! i need to get out and do some heat training, too. have you been practicing the nighttime running, too?
 
Seems like your training is right on if you're feeling strong. You're doing great!! Isnt this all too fun??!!
 
Way to go on your high mileage week.
Don't feel bad, I've been a bad blogger/commenter lately too.
 
Have fun out there, and stay cool!
 
It's amazing how things can feel better if you just slow it down about to ease all the pounding. I am actually enjoying the slower pace and talking to people that I normally do not get to talk to during races.
 
Your training is solid and more important then us. We'll always be here and heh, we know where to find you.

Keep on running!
