    Ace: Ditto on the congrats for the 2K miles!  18 more miles is the obvious response Smile

     

    CK - sorry on the ick.  I think you have more than enough time to bounce back for a March race or later, FWIW.

     

    My week:49 miles of running and 24 "miles" pool-running.

    M: yoga and 9 "miles" of pool-running. Foam-rolling at night.

    T: 11 miles, including three mile repeats in 6:30, 6:23, 6:14, with 2:00 jogged recovery between each. Followed with leg strengthwork and recovery swimming. (yes, there was a gym open on Christmas day). Foam-rolling at night.

    W: 7 miles very easy (9:34), yoga, and then another 5 miles very easy (8:55), followed by drills and strides. Foam-rolling at night.

    Th: Upper body weights/core and 9 "miles" of pool-running. Foam-rolling at night.

    F: 11.5 miles, including four longer hill repeats (2:00 uphill, 1:30 jog, 30 second downhill stride, 1:00 jog) and four short uphill reps (70 seconds uphill, 2:30 jog). Followed with leg strengthwork and recovery swimming. Foam-rolling at night.

    Sa: 10.5 miles very easy (8:52), drills+strides, yoga, and then another 4 very easy (8:50). Foam-rolling at night.

    Su: Upper body weights/core and 6 "miles" of pool-running. Foam-rolling at night.

    Everyone's gotta running blog; I'm the only one with a POOL-RUNNING blog.

     

    And...if you want a running Instagram where all the pictures are of cats, I've got you covered.

      80 miles for the week with some quality.  An interval session with 1 mile repeats, an 11 mile progression with mile 10 @ 6:30, a 21 mile long run with some short intervals and strides.

       

      I couldn't have asked for a better block of training with 1000 miles in the last 3 months.  Only a few minor niggle injuries.  Now for a taper.  Any suggestions on a schedule?

        Taper is very individual, so hard to give a blanket recommendation.  What taper has historically worked best for your ultras?

          Maybe I'll make 2019 a better year. I was short of 2018, then short of 2,000 then 1,900. I guess the upside is I ran 1,892 miles up from 1,627 in 2016 when I ran 3:13 at CIM. I would have hit it if I didn't run Sunday's run with Saturday night.

              Well, no taper.  But I don't race Ultras for time.  I could usually do well with just a light week before the race.  Marathon is completely different and I have never had so many big weeks in a row.

                      According to the timestamps, it's already 2019.  Seattle is so behind the times.

                       

                      Beryl: I'm going to ignore Darkwave's advice and give blanket advice.  I'd train for another week, reducing your miles a little bit.  Then I'd reduce more for the second week and keep the workout moderate.  E.g. if you've been doing 40 minutes in a tempo workout, do 20 minutes ~2 weeks out.  The last week, keep the miles low and do the Magness Tension workout (works for a bunch of us) as your only "workout".   Then kick butt in your race.

                       

                      Presumably some turd has or will start a 2019 thread.  See you over there.  Happy New Year to all!

                          Auburn is a neat little town, glad I decided to check it out (been meaning to for months). Didn’t continue on to the mountains like I wanted, though. Real winter will have to wait.

                           

                          Did a little progression since there was the nice track.  Sevenish down to 6:20, which I’ll take cause I wasn’t feeling super fantastic,

                           

                          bought new shoes with my overtime money.  I was about 100 miles overdue on my last pair.  The place didn’t have GT 2000s and I wasn’t really happy with the last update anyway (had a blister problem, then they mostly distingrated past 100 miles).  Wound up with a pair of new brooks.  They’re a little weird, but I didn’t feel achey when I was in then so I took a chance.  They have some sort of energy return thing and a knit upper part,  I don’t even know who I am any more.

                           

                          happy 2019 everybody, maybe I’ll actually get a ticket to that auburn race this year somehow,
