Training for the Vermont 100 officially kicked off this week, in spite of my lack of motivation. I got home from the Big Sur Marathon to wicked warm temperatures, which definitely kept things interesting my first week out; got a mild sunburn on Wednesday even with sunscreen on. I’m starting a four week build (80/90/100/100), followed by a 50 mile rest week that I’m already excited for. In other news, I lost one of those two big toenails that have been torturing me on downhills. 80 miles flat for the week.
Saturday: 4 mile shakeout run with the team
Sunday: 26.2 miles, pacing the Big Sur Marathon
