Yesterday Nicole and I registered for our race taking place November 20th. The countdown is on.
We have about one more “big” week of training before the taper for Santa Monica Mountains 50k. It was a good week with running three two a days, yoga, a sweet 22 miler with Stitch, and total elevation gain of over 12,200 feet in five days. I’ll shoot for the same next week with a few more miles, then maybe take out the pre-work run in favor of a little more sleep as the taper begins.
It was really nice to have dead legs on the first climb yesterday on the Westridge single track. That let me know I had done some good work during the week. By the end of the run everything was smooth and efficient, but I knew I had logged a solid week. Today is a rest day, then back at it tomorrow.
