That’s A Wrap: TNF50 Training Recap & Goals

This morning I went on my last run of this training cycle.  A simple 4 mile run that went by so fast, kind of like this training cycle did. 18 weeks ago, I started training for my 2nd 50 miler.  I used a similar plan to my first one, but I purposefully made it a […]

Hello!  It’s been a while. Now that my peak weeks have come and gone and it’s practically race week, it’s probably time to finish recapping all this running I have been doing that kept me from blogging.  Weeks 14 and 15 were my last 2 big weeks of training and were piggy backing off of […]

The North Face 50M: Week 13

With the dark mornings and evenings, I have really had to stick to road running during the week lately.  It works and I am still getting my mileage in, but I miss the trails!  My legs were a little cranky this week from all the pounding, but I think they are getting used to it.  […]

The North Face 50M: Weeks 11 & 12

Week 11 was a cutback week and I ended up cutting wayyyy back.  I had strategically planned this week as a cutback week knowing I would have a lot of important things going on, but I still had hoped to get in some decent mileage.  I ended up just feeling generally run down, so I […]

The North Face 50M: Week 9

We’re half way there! Monday 1 hour yoga I broke my rule this week of taking one complete rest day and did yoga on my non-run day.  This wasn’t a very leg intensive class and was just a lot of stretching.  I do not plan on making this a habit, but this week it just […]

The North Face 50M: Week 8

You know those weeks where you just feel overwhelmed by everything?  This was one of those weeks.  I was tired, stressed and anxiously trying to stay on top of everything on my to do list.  I had to say no to a couple things, re-prioritize and just stop being so dramatic in my head.  By […]

The North Face 50M: Week 7

Oops.  I am done with week 8, but gotta recap week 7 first! Week 7 was a cutback week for me.  It worked out well because it coincided with a trip to my parents house for my sister in law’s baby shower (I am going to be an aunt!).  Plus, after 3 weeks of building […]

The North Face 50M: My Plan

Subtitle: The Method to My Madness  Although this is not my first 50 miler, this race is an entirely different race than my first one was.  AR50 was half on flat road and the rest very runnable trails (besides the last 3 miles).  My training plan for that race was very specific for that race.  […]
