This week will be mostly easy runs, with pure walking on Friday morning. I have the Farmdale Trail Run 30-Miler on Saturday. Sunday will be a recovery run/walk. No goal time for Saturday--it's being utilized as a training run. Total mileage for the week will be about 50. Perfect way to kick off my 6-month training for Umstead 100!
No goal time for an ultra? Don't believe me? OK. If you pushed me for an estimated finish time, I'd say just under 7 hours. I'm thinking 10-mile lap times of: 2:10-2:20-2:29=6:59. But that's not a time goal, just an estimate for my friend Jeff to know when he might expect me at the finish line. Jeff's running the 10-mile race and will need to wait for me.
Countdown to Destiny: 180 days to Umstead 100 miler! That's 6 months of solid training. No injuries. Nothing crazy.
