18 miles in the rain and mud
Today I had to ramp up the miles to 18. This will be the longest run I will get in for the 50K. Not long enough really, but it'll have to do. Today was hard because it was very muddy, and the mud balls up on the shoes, you slide around, and feet get wet. So it's like doing the run with ankle weights on. But I did 4hr 23ish, which was at 14.38 average pace. So actually I was quite happy as that's an improvement on the 25K. PLus I don't feel completely beaten up, which is good because the 50K is in 2 weeks. Next weekend will be another taper!
