Training for the week 7/30 to 8/5 was about one thing: getting to the starting line of the Canadian Death Race in one piece, without injury, and with plenty of energy and a good attitude. And that is exactly what I did!
The Death Race was without question the hardest, most grueling event I have ever done. 125K (~78 miles) up and down three major mountains totaling 17,000 feet of ascent over trails so gnarly the running was scattered at best. But I did it. And I will never forget it. Race report coming soon.
Mon: 5 miles, tempo – road
Tues: 5.65 miles, social – road
Wed: 4 miles – road
Thurs: 3 miles, easy – road
Fri: 2 miles, easy – road
Sat/Sun: 80 miles, Canadian Death Race – trails
Total miles: 100 miles
Saturday/Sunday: Canadian Death Race. For the first time in my life, I kept my running streak alive by running at least a mile on two separate days on one run!
Enjoy the glow of finishing the Canadian Death Race. Life is pretty good right about now! The dream is complete, the goal accomplished.
Got good beer? 🙂
