Coming off a long heavy training week consisting of mountain climbing/running (at Blue Mountain), mountain biking and long trail runs. I was lucky enough to be training side by side with some great Ultra runners whose past events put me to shame! Denise Rispolle and Barb Campbell shared their mountain climbing run day with me in Collingwood – giving me some pointers as I prep for my September event. I listen carefully, as I know these ladies know what they are talking about – every detail being etched in my mind. Blisters is a hot topic – one that could make or break my attempt!
As I type this, my legs are burning and sore. However, I know I can not rest long as it is important to test the legs while they are sore to push the limits to the right point. The perfect balance – so hard to find with huge consequences of injury if one side tips.
A few more big workouts today and tomorrow and then I will be ready to taper and rest up for my 3 day, 240km run in July that I will use for a training session.
July 16th – 18th will be the dates for this training. Starting above Blue Mountain and moving down towards Caledon East. 3 day of 80 km a day consecutively. This will be a test I need to conquer! I would love some pacers along the way or a friendly face of support. 🙂
