Part of training for ultras is doing back to back long runs, so since I have an ultra coming up in a few weeks I thought I should do a long run on Saturday too.
I ran 28.6 miles on Saturday morning. I started just after 4 am and ended just after 8 am. I was tired, and malnourished for the most part so I wasn't going for speed or time. I was just going for time on my feet.
So between Friday and Saturday I ran 42 miles. That's a new record for me for sure. I ended the week with 77 miles which is also a record for me.
This week I'm still going to run, but I'm going to take it easier from now until Race day. I think I'm about as ready as I'm going to get.
Did I mention I'm going to quit drinking caffeine...?
