I’m having issues with my computer, so instead of a recap from race weekend filled with wonderful photos and PR dreams, let’s take a look at what I have coming up next.
This Saturday I’ll be running an Ultra.
Yep, 6 days after a half marathon PR, I’m running the Chabot Trail Run 50k (31 miles) with Inside Trail. I’m training hard for my 50 mile race in early April which means I need to get in some good quality miles with elevation changes on the trails. This one should fit the mold:
Distance: 50k (31.4 miles)
Elevation Gain: 4,200′
Previous 50k PR: 7 hours 19 minutes
Goal for this race: Sub 7 hours
Why Sub 7?
I have a 50 mile race in April that I will be attempting to break 11 hours. 50k is roughly 63% of the distance, so sub 7 would put me on pace (just barely). Just think, after I finish the 50k, I would have to run another 20 miles… in which anything could happen. But it’s a training run, so I’ll aim for sub-7 and know that getting the miles is what matters most.
What’s up next for you?
