    Ran TNFEC 50 miler at Bear Mountain this weekend. Ran a 9:50:37 which is a PR on the course by about 45 minutes. Even had enough kick in the legs to log the last 3 miles all in sub 9 min pace. Got in 5.1 miles in CP yesterday easy in 54:13

    Myles - way to go - you're an inspiration as always.
    Quevola - how did you feel about your results? I had a lot of friends run well yesterday at OC. I cant recall if you were looking for closer to 90 minutes or not.
    15ish today in the beautiful california hills.

    Complete madness! Tremendous effort and very inspirational to mortals such as myself who think tiny distances are hard. Hope your pleased with your time, regardless of the details an amazing achievement that very few are able to match.

    4 miles this a.m. Foggy, but comfortable. 55 degrees, no wind. Rather perfect running conditions.

    4 @ 8 min pace. Gorgeous weather. However, no gorgeous girls out. Usually there's a ton. Also, just ordered the Nike Free Run+ 3.

    Easy 6 miles. Seem to have some flaring up of the tendon so probably need to lay off for a few days.

    Thank you all for the kind words - how I got to the point of running these races is not totally out of the norm - (5k - 10K - half - marathon - ultra) but after running my first I never thought I would run one again. Now I'm at the point where I'm staring into the barrel of a loaded gun (WS100) and have 7 weeks to get ready. There's something uniquely powerful about toeing the starting line and being SCARED. If nothing else it doesn't allow me to skip workouts....

    Got in 3.1 in 30:34 in CP this morning. Easy run to shake out the legs.

    10 w/ 8 x 1000 meters.
    Spoke to a coach of some local higher level athletes today, and I am going to join his training group. It looks like it will involve me running lower mileage with much more targeted/specific (harder) workouts. It will be a change from what I am used to.

    Sounds like you're joining Hansens! Good luck.

    ...

    Yesterday I bailed on a track workout (sore quad), but today I babied it through 8 x 400 at 1:35-ish pace. Felt really good to get back out there.

    For me, this is the quintessence of proper training. Less is more. But it's a long way from learning to doing. Speaking of which: today I've been doing nothing for the first time in three weeks.
