- Running Umstead 100 Miler 3 weeks prior
- Training primarily in ultra mode (lots of long slow distance)
- No speed workouts
- Some recent time off since Umstead due to knee and foot pain
I'm not doing that one again.
I understand what an honour it is to qualify for and run Boston, but I don't know - I miss ultras. I love the comradery, the people, the beauty of trails, the pace. Ultras are much more my speed than marathons. I'm doing NYC this year, though I do plan on doing some speed training (which should help w/ ultras as well) and I have to figure out how to run it w/o getting all stressed about time.
