Wow, it is a bit stuffy in the garage! My big "plan," tonight was to get in a second run of the day and make it to intervals of a climb and flat run. This would simulate the race in a couple weeks because it's a direct climb of about 1.5 miles and 1100' up, followed be about 1.5 miles down and a loss of the same 1100'.
I am going to attempt to average 40-45 minute up and down loops. This will allow me to reach and maybe exceed my goal of 12 miles in the 3 hour time limit. Tonight, I was able to get in 1 loop of the 30 minute climb and 15 minute flat run. I think between the fast 6 miles last night, the fast 4 miles this morning and the seriously hot garage conditions, I am just done.
Tomorrow is a little off day with some old man softball to clear the mind and get in some sprints. Back at it on Thursday.
