  1. RUN
    great birthday intervals 8.5 mi 01:15 08:49 pace

    Conditions less than optimum but still put a smile on my face. Just kept trying to relax and focus on present - not worry about pace or what the rest of the day holds or stuff from the past.

    great another Sunday sweat-fest 12 mi 01:35 07:55 pace

    great cooler intervals 8.5 mi 01:18 09:10 pace

    great humid tempo 8.5 mi 01:11 08:21 pace

    cooler (72 degrees), but very humid; another August sweat-fest. Legs felt a bit heavy from yesterday's squats, but not terrible - think I was more limited by humidity than by leg fatigue. Need... read more

    alright C&O canal, Reiley's Lock 14.8 mi 02:11 08:51 pace

      3 minute positive split is not bad at all in those conditions! Way to get some big miles in despite the conditions.

      I know for my 50k i was training for 2 years ago, i was focused on more bootcamp, which i did a lot more strength, squats included I improved tremendously. Last year training for my 50k i focused more on running more and less BC, i did improve my time but i felt my attack on hills wasn't as good as the year before. For me, i think more squats is better. I just don't carry heavy weight since i want fresh legs the next day. It's a balance.

      I do only body resistant strength workouts. I do several variations of squats. Some days I do just push-ups and squats and alternate. I do up to 800 squats in that workout. Usually sets of 75-100. I have done a set of 200 before. I am sure you can do it but 300 is a lot. I will say that the day after these workouts makes your run a bit sluggish but it will totally pay off in the long run. You will be building strength and endurance while trying to reach a set of 300. Good Luck!
