I am still a neophyte to this whole 'race planning' thing. I built up to a 50 Km Frosty run last yr (following a demanding Hal Higdon schedule). It seemed fairly easy only cuz my husband 'bonked' at 27k so I walked/ran with him for the rest( he had the flu prior). Which meant I felt GREAT after so now I have NO idea how to plan recovery. I currently do a 3-4 hr trail run every Sunday. I love Sundays- Just Run and Relax... and maybe a bit of rum. Tee hee...
GOAL: Diez Vista 50 K:
No 'big race'. But THIS is the race that got me hooked on trail running. Some 5 yrs ago I saw Suzanne Evans finish (current CR holder) WOW, as a Physio I was amazed at her physique and conditioning. IF I see her again, I must thank her for the motivation. But I MUST do this race.
Dirty duo in March - 4 weeks later- Diez Vista 50 K in April. enough time? - I have no idea. If I survive this, I plan to do the other 50ks in the BCUTS. |Too much?? Maybe I'm too
old for this type of thing (43).
Any other experiences out there for recovery from a 50 K?? Love to hear.
