This past week has gone well. I've hit all my training goals. I'm following a modified version of Hal Higdons advanced marathon training program. I'm using this to train for the El Scorcho 50k. I've run intervals and tempos and haven't had a problem keeping the prescribed paces. Yesterday, Saturday, I ran 17 miles with a friend. He ended up doing 50 miles total in preparation for an upcoming ultra.
Today I ran an easy 7 miles at the Draper trails. I took one spill, but it was minor. I guess I have to fall every once and awhile to remind me to concentrate. I'm starting bit by bit to figure out the layout of these trails. I started on the Green trail, and took an offshoot to the orange trail to add distance. I am also trying to gradually up my mileage to 60 miles a week. This week I'm in the high 40's, next week I'll try to hit the 50's.
