Hell Week

After finding out I had been moved from the wait list to the entrants list of the Massanutten 100 Miler I had decided to follow John’s advice and have a hell week of my own. Here’s how it broke down

Monday April 20th – 10.1 Miles(87 laps) around the YMCA indoor track followed by an hour of hockey

Wednesday April 22nd – 11.34 Miles (3 laps) around Tower Hill Pond in Auburn

Friday, April 24th – I had basically had a mental breakdown at poor management at work earlier in the week that led me to no call/no show at the office. Instead when I awoke, I grabbed my water belt, my favorite pair of shoes and knocked out 28.38 miles on rolling pavement and dirt roads between here and Henniker.

Saturday April 25th – 6.44 miles doing my favorite emerald lake loop

Sunday April 26th – 14 Miles at the Muddy Moose Trail run

Total Mileage on the week – 70.3 miles

A personal best! The biggest test that I had passed was the 28 miler that is a personal longest training run. And the ability/desire to knock out the 3 back to back days and still have a respectable time at the Muddy Moose on Sunday in the heat. Now, tapering, if you can call it that, for the big test in VA in under two weeks.
