Capping Off a 70 Mile Week

Ran 10.0 miles @ 8:08/mile pace.
AHR/MHR - 147/160
Paved roads, dirt roads, trails.
Very hilly.
Upper 60s to lower 70s, sunny.

Today was a mixed bag as far as terrain. Goal was to continue to run on varied surfaces on tired legs. Like yesterday, soreness in legs dissipated as the run went on. I went a bit faster than I thought I would today, but it felt comfortable.

Recapping the week:
Total miles: 70.2
Total elevation gain: Well over two miles worth.

Monday - 7.1 miles
Tuesday - 7.7 miles
Wednesday - rest
Thursday - 33.4 miles
Friday - rest
Saturday - 12.0 miles
Sunday - 10.o miles

Will likely take the next two days off to recover, then easy runs until the weekend. One last long run next weekend, and then it's taper time for the Vermont 100. The race will very much be uncharted territory, so hard to make predictions. However, I'm feeling good about it.

It sounds like you are well on your way to the Vermont 100 with your training. I am still in awe at how fast your body has recovered from your knee surgery(and a wee bit jealous). Enjoy your rest days!

Nothing like a 33mile day to pump up the mileage. Must be nice to be able to concentrate on your running now. Good luck getting peaked for Vermont.

Getting published, running injury free, and a new car. Now that's some good Karma leading up to Vermont. I can't wait to read your race report.
