"Perhaps the genius of ultrarunning is its supreme lack of utility. It makes no sense in a world of space ships and supercomputers to run vast distances on foot. There is no money in it and no fame, frequently not even the approval of peers. But as poets, apostles and philosophers have insisted from the dawn of time, there is more to life than logic and common sense."

Week Log: Feb 25 - March 2

Week 4 of 6 in preparation for the Jurassic Coast Challenge. Bit of an odd week that included a business trip to Boston, some time in the hotel weight room, a little stairmaster, and a hard 40 mile long run.
  • Mon - 2 miles bushwhacking
  • Tues - 11 mi
  • Wed - 6 mi (treadmill followed by 30 mins stairmaster)
  • Thurs - 3 mi (treadmill and weights)
  • Fri - 5.5 mi
  • Sat - 40 mi
  • Sun - 4 mi
Weekly total: 70 miles

Had a good session with local PT guru Brian "Gyro" Beatty this week at Balanced Movement. I've now got a new stretching routine that includes fun stuff like this...

I'm feeling pretty good about preparations for Jurassic Coast, but definitely feeling the accumulated miles after yesterday's Uwharrie adventure. I'm looking for more hill training this week and then back to back marathons Sat/Sun, starting with the Umstead Trail Marathon.
