The small: I changed up my mid-week mileage this week so I could have another rest day on Saturday before my 22 (and still get my 45 for the week!). This is what I did:
I feel good and I'm looking foward to Sunday's run.
The big: I'm sending in my registration this weekend for the Mt Hood PCT 50/50 on July 29th. I'll do the 50K. I had considered it earlier but thought it might be too close to my marathon for a first attempt. But the more I've thought about it the more I know I can do it! And everyone I've asked has said to go for it. (Have you noticed that ultrarunners always say that? LOL!)
It may be hot and the higher altitude is a slight concern. But I'll have 10 hours to complete, which seems like a pretty good cushion. I'm an early morning runner so I think I'll have to add a few afternoon runs to my training to get in some heat training. Yay! I'm excited.
