Make yourself a warm beverage and cuddle up – this is the beginning of a long post because 100 miles starts with just 1 mile…and this is a good chunk of my why… #bibchat #hawk100 #trainingforultra
Heading into the final HOURS before my first 100 miler, I have so many thoughts… So I just figured I would go over my final must haves, race details, race plans, crew details, and all-over race prep.
Can I get a do-over? With 6 weeks until the #Hawk100, I am having a rough time fitting everything in…and my running is what is suffering the most. Could there just be a couple more hours in the day?? No? Okay…then I will do what I can. (and I will be trying again next week…)
Phew! What a week! Running, traveling, flying, and more running…bring it on! Check out my last week of training for the @RunRocknRoll Chicago half marathon! #rnrbr #rnrchicago #ad #bibchat #bibravepro
The @RunRocknRoll Chicago is this coming weekend…and I am excited! I am also a few  short weeks from my first 100 miler…and I am not stressing yet, I’ll save that for the taper weeks. #bibchat #rnrbr
There are so many things to remember when running the ultra [or ANY for that matter] distances – 50K and above. Things can get hard…real hard, but there are several ways to push through the pain to get to that finish line. Here are five things I need to remember when running a long race – let’s say, 100 miles. Since I am deep into the Hawk 100 training, I need to think about these often!
This week is just feels a bit off…
After the [all] night run, I have been “catching up” on sleep and making a full night of sleep a bigger priority than getting out for morning runs. I am not too heart broken about the down week, they come sometimes – planned or not!
I am gearing up to travel and run the Rock ‘n’ Roll Chicago in a couple weeks and the quickly approaching Hawk 100m event in September!
Let’s get on with it!
I am playing with my miles a lot this week. Since I built in a night 50K into this training block, the miles are a little funky this week leading up to the weekend. I plan a couple trail days this week (check out below if it works out or not) and the long, night training run this weekend! While my miles are messed around from day to day, the miles for the week equal the same ♥
More miles – more problems…but not this week! Training for 100M – Check it out! #rnrbr #bibchat
What a week!
The @RunRocknRoll Chicago is 7 weeks away and the Hawk 100 is 13 weeks away! There are some additional races in the mix for the Hawk 100 training – but I will think about those as they come [big miles on the way!!]…
