It was an easy 28 mile week that went as planned. I needed to start ramping up a little volume again since I decided (last minute) to race the Eastern Divide 50k the end of June. If I had my normal base, gearing up for a 50k wouldn't be tough but since I haven't ran over 20 miles at one time in over 2 months I need to get back in fighting shape! Plus, the race has about 6,500 feet of vertical climb!
The week went like this:
Monday - 5 (bridle)
Wednesday - 6 (hilly bridle/single track combo)
Saturday - 5 (road @ 8:15 pace)
Sunday - 12 (hilly bridle @ 8:37 pace)
Although I was a little uncomfortable at the end of Sunday's run it was good to do some quicker miles on Saturday to wear my legs down a bit before Sunday's hill loop. So far so good...
