I'm actually getting a bit nervous about my upcoming race (Labor of Love 50 Mile). Not so much that it's my first 50 miler, but more-so that I've been doing the majority of my training throughout the winter in Ohio and have only had 2 descent mileage runs this Spring in temps above 50 degrees.
Looking at the forecast for the race:
As far as training goes, I've been fairly on-track with my training schedule the past 2 weeks. I did fall way short of my total mileage goal for March, but was able to still set a new Personal Best for a single month with 213 miles. What does this mean? A new mileage mark to surpass in April!
In other news, last week I received my two new pairs of Brooks running shoes. The yellow/red are Brooks Green Silence and the other are Brooks Ghost 2. I will be wearing the Brooks Ghost 2 April 10. So far, I really like both pair. This is my second pair of Ghost 2. They are fairly light-weight and have good support for long distance road-running. The Green Silence are so lightweight. I believe they are 6+ ounces. I ran a 22 mile run this past Saturday in them and they felt great. I'm hoping to be able to eventually transition to minimal shoes such as this for all distances I run.
9 more days.. it's hard to believe!!
