Another week running the trails of Carolina North Forest. This is week 2 of 6 in the buildup for the Jurassic Coast Challenge 3/28-30th.
- Mon - 3 mi easy
- Tues - 12.5 (7.5 am, 5 pm)
- Wed - 12 mi (7.5 am, 4.5 pm)
- Thurs - 5 mi (night run)
- Fri - 5.5 mi
- Sat - 24 mi (half dark, half light)
- Sun - 18 mi (7:30 pace)
I've been keeping an eye on 3 dials: 1) # of runs per week, 2) miles per week, and 3) average pace. Tinkering around with the idea of holding the weekly miles and time constant while reducing the total number of runs. Basically encouraging longer runs at pace. Something to think about on the road to Bighorn 100. For now, I'm enjoying squeezing lots of shorter runs into my schedule and starting to ramp up longer back to back runs.
Added another couple pairs of NB790s to the rotation. I'm running in these almost exclusively now. Last time I was this excited about a shoe was when I discovered One Sport (Montrail) in 1997 with a model that became the Vitesse.
Another week injury free and generally feeling good physically and mentally. Looking forward to an easy day tomorrow and hopefully another solid week.
