Legs felt surprisingly good but I'm coming down with a cold/ fever, it feels like my legs can handle the distance better than my body can. Will likely take the next few days off and rest. I'm heading out to CO on Thursday to run Mt. Massive and Hope Pass over the weekend as a final push to get my legs strong for VT.
Nice runs Myles. Piling on the heavy mileage affects people differently. Awesome that your legs and core can handle things well right now. Good luck with the cold, maybe just a summer cold at a bad time.
Is the elevation in CO the same as the VT run? Looked up the VT100 and see you have about 15K climb and descent. From the description, looks like the weather (heat) will play a big part of the run as most of the uphill portion looks like you hit it in the daylight. Some nice race reports out there from last few years. Hopefully you will put one together for us when you get done.
Do you have a crew or doing it solo w/ drop bags? Stay positive.
