Another solid week of running just like last week! Finally hit my mileage, overshot my vert goal, and just felt good for every run this week. Perhaps it was the nice run of weather or conversation or the company. Perhaps it was getting over the hump in the training. Perhaps it was just a lucky streak of running. I don’t care really care. When it’s good, run with it. (See what I did there?) The weeks are only going to get harder for the next two months.
Finally pinned down and verified all my pacers for Bighorn, which is good for me because that’s one less thing I need to worry about organizing. It also lets everyone prepare themselves for a specific section of trail, none really which are any less than 14 miles or have an elevation change of less than 4,500′.
Questions to you:
• What’s your longest streak of consecutive days of running?
• Have you ever been a pacer? What’s your go to strategy to keep them moving?
• Have you ever had a pacer in a race? Do you like to lead or have them lead?
