7/16/08 The Final Countdown

Well, it's almost time. Just a couple days left to the Vermont 100.

It's been a wild ride training for this thing. I've definitely pushed very hard. Training started about six months ago at the beginning of this year. I've run over 2,100 miles over these last six months.

Some more training stats:

  • 31 runs over 20 miles
  • 17 runs over 25 miles
  • 11 runs over 30 miles
  • 4 runs over 35 miles
  • 1 50 mile run
  • 18 weeks of 80+ miles
  • 11 weeks of 90+ miles
  • 3 weeks of 100+ miles

I definitely feel ready and well conditioned now. The only doubt in my mind right now is the weather. It's supposed to be 90 degrees on race day with thunderstorms. Not quite ideal. Oh well. I've come too far to let weather stop me.

Hopefully I'll be posting a victorious race report here shortly. Wish me luck!
