50 Mile Weekend

This past weekend was full of running. As recommended by an ultra marathoner friend, "try to run a marathon on a Saturday, then run the same distance the following Sunday." The Umstead marathon provided me with that opportunity!

I ran Umstead at a slower pace than normal in anticipation of the next days run. I didn't think however it would take 4:36:48. I felt strong enough to run/hike the next day for 24 miles at South Mountains State Park, giving me a weekend total of 50 miles. This was a good exercise that helps my body build a better lactate threshold. Im going to need it for the 100 miler coming up at the end of this month.

Taking a dip in the cold waters at South Mountain was a great way to end the day!
