Training Log - Thursday, August 30, 2012

My last "run" before Merrill's Mile 24 Hour Race in Dahlonega, GA this Saturday. I really just went out to shake my legs loose. 3.5 miles at a leisurely pace in humid conditions. Temps were in the low 80s and I caught a drizzle of rain here and there. I'm starting to get nervous about Saturday. Hopefully, my body will play along and it's going to be a good day. I've trained more than ever and while there are always things to improve upon, this is the best training cycle I've ever completed. It had its ups and downs, but overall, my mileage has been higher than ever before and I managed to get 100 feet of climbing on technical terrain for every training mile I've run. Let's see how I do on flat terrain for 24 hours. I have a couple of game plans depending on how the race develops. My main plan is to stay healthy and to have a good time.
