Training Log - Tuesday, October 26, 2010
The plan was to go up Monte Sano to the ranger station for a nice 10 mile out & back. However, Richard's legs were shot (probably still after effects of the 50 miler last week) and we ended up cutting the run in half, which was perfectly finew with me. We still got some hill workout in and we are not killing ourselves in the process. With Pinhoti barely two weeks away, tapering is the word of the day, every day, anyway. We'll try for another easy jog tomorrow just to keep the legs turning over. The weather was unseasonably warm this morning, in the mid 70s. And that after a serious thunderstorm yesterday and another one on the horizon for later today. I ended up running in my second pair of Montrail Mountain Masochists that I bought last week. I am trying to break them in before Pinhoti, so I can use them in my drop bag at mile 50 together with a new pair of socks. That should help minimize foot problems as well. The small blister problem I had after North Face has all but dissappeared. I cut away the skin layer on top to eliminate any friction during my training runs and that has worked. I am sure the area will toughen up just in time for the 100 miler.
