Never Summer training week two recap

It was a light week of running for me. Only four runs and all of them under 90 minutes.

  • 3 hours, 50 minutes

  • 22.5 miles

  • 1,709 ft D+

I did two strength workouts, Tuesday and Thursday, and went hard enough to make myself sore. I rode my bike to the Pineridge trailhead and home again twice, but didn't count those trips in the total above.

I'm learning to navigate the county roads north of Fort Collins near the equestrian complex where my youngest kid is learning to ride. There are some nice views towards the northeast corner of Colorado.

Next week I'm planning to run 55-65 miles with a hard speed workout and back-to-back long runs. Something like week 14 in 2020.

Never Summer 100k training plan

There are 12 weeks between the Quad Rock and Never Summer events. I'm going to split this up into three four-week blocks of training. One block of working on my base with some speed work, one block of hard workouts and back-to-back long runs at high elevation, treeline and above, and one block of fine-tuning, tapering, and racing. With luck, I'll start Never Summer in better shape than last year. I'm excited about that.
