I had thought that my running 100+ mile weeks had long since past. Then, Saturday, I was updating my log book, and the realization set in that I had just run a 127.5 miles in the past week. Of course, pushing over 100 miles does take to much effort after I figured in a Monday 45 mile long run followed by the next Saturday running 35 miles. That's a whopping 80 miles in 2 days. The rest of the days were filled in with my 7 and 10 miles runs. They were hardly worth noting in comparison to the other runs.
Looking at my schedule, I am likely topping 30+ miles over the next two weeks before starting my tapper in to the 50 miler.
Cross your fingers for me that these runs steel the muscles and callus the mind to handle 50 miles.
