Your training is amazing? How does it feel?

Thanks. It feels... TIRING! Ha! I'm very happy for my rest day tomorrow. I can't lie - it's hard. After doing 3.5 hours of running on Friday, it was tough to get out the door for a 5 hour brick on Saturday. I get 2 rest days both before and after the Fury, so that will be good for recovery for/from the race. Gotta remember why I'm doing this - it's not easy to really improve and get better at 24+ hour races, but that's what I am after and this is what it takes!

I'm looking for the Like button but can't find it anywhere.

Well, you inspire me, and glad that your are blazing the way. I hope to have that enthusiasm when I need it!

:) Ha, Phil!

Thanks Barbara. Remember that this is not what the "buy in" level of training for doing your first 24-hour. What you're doing now would be enough to finish one successfully! Once you finish the 12-hour next weekend, the next step is 24-hour! Don't feel like you shouldn't sign up if you're not doing 17-hour weeks. (In fact, I drop back down after next week)

Best part of all this training is the sheer number of miles you are logging. You are going to blow some people away at the next race.

Mr Wonderful:
If the improvements wait to show up until the race after next, that would be best, thanks.

That's the plan! It's like I've told other people, I want you all to think "Who is this woman and what have you done with Hilary?"

Mr Wonderful:
What are your team's objectives at WT? Has any Michigan team run the full course yet?

Win, obviously...

Well, ok, really the same as any other race - compete the best we can, race efficiently, push ourselves, make smart decisions, and hope that our best is enough to get us a high ranking finish.
