This past weekend was no different. My schedule had a 25 and 15 mile run on it, and I ended up doing a 20.5 mile trail run Saturday morning and a 20 mile run on Sunday afternoon. Both days were very hot and humid. I concentrated on a run 5 mile/walk 1 mile approach. It really helped, as the 1 mile allowed for me to recover, cool down, rehydrate over an extended (14-15 min) period, and take in some fuel as well. Even with the run/walk approach, I was able to maintain at mid-9 min overall pace. I actually felt really good after each run.
Below is a video of my trail run on Saturday. It gets a bit crazy toward the end because I didn't realize that the hill(s) I was running were causing it to look like I was pointing the camera at the ground. And.. not sure what happened to the sound at the very end. I'll have to try to fix that.
Only 3 weeks until my next 50 mile race (upcoming races).
