I backed off a bit last week, only 81 miles. I think this is good as I have had 7 weeks of 100+ miles a week. It was nice running on fresher legs this last weekend. They didn't feel like a heavy metal was running through my blood stream like at Peterson Ridge Rumble two weeks earlier.
My coach hasn't been happy with me. I should have had 2-3 high mileage weeks followed by a recovery week. I will do better in the future. Afterall, my coach knows way more than I do about this thing.
Last week I took off two days. The first days off I have had in 85 days. What did I do with those days? Well, I was a lazy bum on Friday but did pack for Capital Peak 50 miler on Saturday.
Then on Sunday I went and watched a ton of Ultra friends have great races at the Eugene Marathon. Here is a link to some pictures. Pictures here
Willamette (Will-am-it) River with runners on the bike path. Click on picture if you want to magnify.
Oh, the Willamtte River is the only Northernly flowing river in the US I believe.
The course... Much of it on Pre's Trail.
