    Ouch.

     

    Now I know what hills are.

    Heh. That's how I felt after my first 50k too. Did you love them? Smile What was the elevation gain?

      Yeah.  I am humbled, but in retrospect it was great.  About 8000 feet total gain/loss.  Most of the climbs were 700-1000 feet, with grades of 20% (i.e., you could not run them, you could not walk them).  At mile 22 I could c limb no more, but did anyway.  And got it done.


      You'll ruin your knees!

        ...a picture is worth 1,000 words!  Congrats on the finish...when you forget the pain, I can show you some longer climbs

                So 8 days after the 50k, I ran Monkey.  I knew at mile 1, the first hill, that I still had Muir in my legs, and just about nothing else.  My legs just never woke up.  Muir took a lot out of me.  But then today, 4 days later, I stomped out a good hilly 5 miler.  So all is not lost!  A fine two weeks of running, to be sure Big grin
