How I Trained for My First 50K
|Backyard Bloom - Happy Easter!|
My long run miles on day 1/followed by the next day's run, leading up to the 50K:
6 weeks out: 20/10
5 weeks out: 10K race instead of long runs
4 weeks out: 22/10.5
3 weeks out: 24/10
2 weeks out: 20/10.5
1 week out: 11.5 - Today. My run was cut short because my knee felt a little off. It's probably nothing, but there was no reason to make it an even 12 if it might make it worse. During the run, I picked up some speed - felt great! I ate Powerbar gel and energy blasts. Refueled with chocolate milk, like I often do after a hard workout.
