Stoked that I was feeling stronger on the trails on Sunday, even though it might have been because I "only" had 10 miles the day before, but shoot, I'll take it. My midweek runs are getting longer, but I decided that if they start to get too hard to wake up for I can always break them up and do some in the morning and some on my lunch break if need be. I haven't had to do it yet, but it's nice to alleviate some of that pressure and give myself the option (rather than having to wake up at 2am so I can fit everything in that I need to do in a day...). My long run on Saturday was a mixed bag. I felt like I got in a strong 18 miles, but the last 6 I was riding the struggle bus. I started later (thinking that I'd be running throughout the day for my 100-miler so might as well get used to running at different times of the day), which was nice for my sleep but not nice for my run. It got warm, I ran out of water and the majority of the 1,100+ feet of climbing came in the last 5 or so miles. Even so, I'm proud of the 53.9 miles I got in (including that last "long" run before my 50K in two weeks).

How were your workouts this past week?
