This is week 15 of my ultra marathon training. It's so hard to believe I only have 10 weeks left! It'll be here before I know it. I am SO excited. I feel like as much as I'm training physically for it, I'm also mentally preparing for it. It's still hard to fathom running for 30 hours straight. But I have no doubt that I'm going to do it. It's not even a question in my mind.
In 4 weeks I'll be going to the same trail and will run 50 miles on it. That'll be good preparation!
Below is a pic of my training plan. As you can see, I'm not getting in as much mileage as I should be. That is not good. But I'm going to keep trying!
A friend of mine gave me this book, and I am now reading through it for the 3rd time! Relentless, Forward Progress, by Bryon Powell. It is SO good.
Saturday I ran 14 miles on my treadmill. Hopefully the last long run on that thing! This weekend is supposed to be nice and warm, perfect to run 31 miles.
Last night's 3 mile run outside was amazing! It sure felt good to be outside again.
Yes, I'm talking to myself.
Do you have a good 'running' book you can recommend? (Not necessarily on ultra's.)
