Had another strong week. Despite rolling my ankle pretty badly running down some steep technical trail on Mt Baldy early in the week and nursing some lingering pain from that, I was able to get some good mid-distance runs in and finished off with 90 miles and 9k feet of vert.

On Friday I head up to Auburn for the three day Western States training camp. 30 miles on Saturday, 20 on Sunday and 20 on Monday. Hoping to hit 100 miles by Sunday.

Another good week in the books. 31 on Saturday, 18 on Sunday, and 22 yesterday....all on the last 70 miles of the Western States course. In the final push for another 90+ miles this week, then itís taper time for the Big Dance on the 23rd.
After this weekends runs, Im feeling very confident about a sub-24.

I've been sidelined with a foot injury the past couple weeks; sprained an extensor in my right foot. Frustrating to say in the least, but I'm slowly getting back to it. Ran 5.5 on Saturday, rested Sunday, ran 6.5 yesterday, and hoping to get another 6 or so in today.

Better that it happened now as I am about to take 2 weeks off to go on my honeymoon than be sidelined during real training.

My only concern now is ramping back up once I get back, as the first week back I'm supposed to be at 55 miles.....

That sucks to hear man. Hopefully itís just minor and youíll be back at it soon.

Iím officially in taper mode and took my first day off from running in a couple months. Started my heat training yesterday with 15 minutes in a 180 degree dry sauna, then 25 minutes today as well. Hoping to get in there every day for the next 2 weeks before heading north for Western States on the 21st.

injuries suck and maybe this is because I'm older than you guys but I look at them as a normal part of a years training. I havent been knocked out for at least 4-8 weeks in any of the last 3 years, and am monitoring a chronic achilles condition year round.

no big deal, only doing 20mpw I think I'll live

Good to see this thread is still alive. Man that sucks about the injury, but good to see things seem to be improving.

I ran the Rock n Roll Half this Sunday with a few friends from Team Hoyt. They were short on runners to push the kids in chairs and asked me to help. So I ran with a friend of mine (her son is also in a chair).

Without getting too sappy, I will see these types of events are a great way to give back. Great crowd support and the kids are absolutely stoked to be out there on the course. If you ever get a chance to push, don't hesitate and go do it.

Thatís pretty damn awesome Kent! I got to see the OG Team Hoyt when I ran Boston the first time and it was amazing.

knee feels super tight after a liesurely stroller push yesterday. Not sure what's going on with that.

Was debating on signing up for a 50miler on a whim, I think I'll bail for long-term health.

I'm entering an all-comers track meet thursday, just doing the mile I think. If I have enough time [have to masters swim that evening, they might run into eachother] I'll double-back and do the 2-mile after it also heh. Will be fun making everyone else wait for me to finish

No real expectations of PR'ing, but I did have an ok set of 8x400 repeats at what I assume is my current mile capability. Didnt feel too hard, the last few reps I think I learned a little bit about suffering at mile pace--just keep going, you're fine basically

Has anybody else ruled out buying a house because it is not runner friendly and rather dangerous to run on surounding roads (people speed and many blind curves)?
I know I can drive soewhere but it is soo nice just stepping out of the house and running.

So uh wtf. I take 2 weeks off for the honeymoon, where I was active almost every day of it, and I come back to run 6 miles, and I am struggling at an 8:00 pace. Heart rate is up in the 170s, whereas I was cruising in the 7:20 for 13 miles 2 weeks ago...
Can 2 weeks really make THAT much of an impact? I'm wondering if it's more that I seem to be fighting off a cold and the weather has turned into a hot, humid soup...but damn, it's got me doubting myself pretty bad now.

Yeah, you didnít lose any fitness man, body just needs to shift gears again. Give it a few workouts and youíll be back to normal.

was supposed to do 15 today. Slept in because we were at a wedding last night. Error 1: drank a bit last night, didn't properly hydrate.
Woke up at 8:30 AM, laid around, didn't get on the road til 11:30ish.
Error 2: It is now 90 degrees.

This is, by far, the hardest run I've had all season. I barely..BARELY eeked out 14 miles at a 8:20 overall pace, and by the time I was done, the temp was 95 with a realfeel of 101. I am fucking stupid.

The work your body has to do cooling you down definitely makes your pace feel faster than it is.
It depends on the individual, but there's calculators out there that give equivalent pace/temperature indexes.

Nice part is if you stick with it through the summertime, you'll get some free speed benefits come fall/winter.

Yep, I'm with you. This weekend was amazing weather, and I got a solid 16 miler in. Dead on consistent with my pacing; got 6 miles in at marathon pace as well.

Let's talk vests.

Right now I am running with a water bottle belt thing, and it only holds 20oz, which I burn in the first 5 miles. I have to navigate my runs based on where I can get a refill. What vests are you guys using that doesn't sway with the changing weight as you run and drink? Chris, is your Ultimate Direction AK vest still holding up?
