Into the wild
This time around, June 8th is creeping up, and all I did was a 15 miler 2.5 weeks ago, and a 8 miler/12 miler weekend combination last weekend. Both of those this past weekend were a bit painful, an old reoccurence of inflammation in my right arch. Because of that, I think I need to take maybe 5-7 days off and will have to really fight / get lucky in order to get even one 18-20 miler in by the end of May. This training is all on terrain much easier to handle than the actual race.
The race has a 25K option. I have never backed out of a race or shortened the distance, and of course I don't WANT to, but I also don't want to hurt myself. If I attempt all 50K, I have no time goal except to finish in the 9 hour course limit.
Any thoughts/advice? Thanks!
Shut up and run
