Here is the training log that led up to my first 50. Stay tuned for a future post about lessons learned and how I'm adjusting my training for a stronger finish (hopefully) next time. I started with one of the examples from Bryon Powell's book, "Relentless Forward Progress," which you can buy from the folks at irunfar.com (NFI). Work and life led to me doing less volume than recommended but I finished injury free with a whole 20 minutes to spare before the cut-off!
My highest mileage week was 46 miles. What is your typical high mileage week leading up to a 50 miler? Did you think it should be further after you were finished? Sound off below!
