After a high mileage week of 86 miles last week, Superior 50K this Saturday and FANS in a few weeks...I'm taking it a bit easy this week.
No 800's, no run club fasties..just me and Topaz loping our way around the trail. It's been awesome.
Monday, Tuesday and Wednesday were 5 miles a piece, I'll run another 5 tomorrow night and run a 10 mile section of the SHT as we travel up to Lutsen on Friday. Saturday is the 50K and Sunday I'll run another 10 mile section of the SHT as we travel home from Lutsen. Sections to familiarize myself with the 100 mile run in September.
One year ago I and Ann ran this 50K together. We started out in the back of the pack and I finished in 7:09, just taking it easy. It was Ann's first run on the SHT.
This year I think I can finish in 6:30 without pushing it. If I push it, I could probably get 6 hours. I don't know if I should push with FANS right around the corner. I guess I haven't decided on a goal. It'll just be a fun run on a beautiful trail.
