I moved this week's Sunday run to Saturday in order to save tomorrow (a nicer day) to do trail work on the Great Adirondack Trail Run course. It was done, but the heavy snow on Memorial Day weekend brought a lot of trees down. No chainsaw this time, so I hope they aren't too big.
I'm happy to be home and running on familiar roads again (and not having to dodge people and cars, as fun as that was for a couple days). I'm working on getting the Sunday run up into the 20+ mile range before Wakely Dam.
I probably won't run more than 3hrs during any one training run even though the race is around 5hrs, but might also do one back-to-back long run, where I run 14mi on Saturday and 18 on Sunday or something like that, so that I've at least done 50k in one 24hr period at some point before the race.
Total Miles: 17mi
Weekly So Far: 45.5mi
Saturday: Easy 17
