100-miler in five weeks? (Read 38 times)

Watoni


    Well, as I sit here I have two thoughts about attempting the Rio de Lago 100 on November 9th.

     

    Since Leadville in August, I have not run much. On the other hand, I think I have good fitness and my Pyrenees tour was certainly an aerobic boost.

     

    So, figuring in work/family responsibilities and a wedding in NY in a few weeks, I think I can get in 40-70 miles (plus some cycling) for the next three weeks (including this week) and then a 10-day to 2-week taper.

     

    Crazy, or reasonable?

      Go for it.

      You've had enough time to recover from both big summer events, and you're in great shape.

        I don't know, maybe you should ask lace_up !!!!  LOL.

         

        (Actually I say go for it.)

              Leadville was just about a month or six weeks ago, right? Even if it was 8 weeks, you should go ahead and do it.
