The road to building a good base begins! Will be adding miles in 5, 10, 5, 10, 5, 5, 5 increments. Hoping to top out at 70 miles before shutting down the week before the Land Between The Lakes Ultra-Marathon.
I’m not a cold weather person, but given my present circumstance I’m forced to run in temperatures I can only describe, in my opinion, as “bone chilling.” Local runners will disagree, but running on ice makes any situation colder. I hope my experiences running in Indy during this time will make me a strong willed runner. With that said, I do get a little jealous of people running in t-shirts under clear blue skies on my home trails in Altadena. This time last year I was putting up 53 miles with 11,000 ft.+ of elevation gain. I know I won’t be putting up any kind of climbs while I’m here, but I hope to discover new ways to get some elevation –War Memorial stairs!
