March

February didn’t stand a chance, even with a couple taper weeks thrown in there.

352.5 miles!! 

That is a new personal record that I think will be sticking around for a while.

March was a busy month with obviously so much running and in some beautiful places!

I started the month off with my 13th marathon, the day after a 25 mile run

The next weekend I ran my first official ultra-marathon – Way Too Cool 50k!  Followed up by a 23 miler.

The following weekend I ran the hardest 32 wet, muddy, messy, awesome miles of my life and found my breaking point the next day.

Then I started my much needed taper

I finished off the month with a couple of lower mileage weeks being a good tapering runner, and the last day of the month was my last double digit run of this training cycle. 

It was a very good month.  

I learned a lot, of course about running but more importantly about myself and I am in a great place heading into a new month with a lot of great things happening… including AR50!

    That’s some good time on your legs. You’re SO ready. The excitement of knowing you can do it but the mystery of how it’s all going to come together, what you’re going to see, how you’ll feel, it’s SO exciting! I can’t wait until your race day.

    You had am amazing month! I agree with the monthly high mileage PR sticking around comment. I had a high month too and I think it will be the high for the year. Time to level out for a while.

    Race day will be amazing with the training you have put in!

    Wow, that is an insane month of mileage! Among people that I follow I think that is the most miles I’ve ever heard of someone running in a month! Amazing pictures too. I think your 50K will go great!

    This is seriously so awesome and wonderful! I pray one day my body can handle that kind of mileage…on my fifth injury right now
