I'm 99% sure I'll be registering for Rough Creek 40 mile trail race. The race is mid-September and it will be in Glen Rose. My training begins next week! I'm going to aim, at least in the beginning to do back to back long runs on Saturday and Sunday. I'm not sure how realistic that is, but it's what I'm aiming for....I will most likely drop the second long run, towards week 12 or so of training.
2 Training Goals:
1. Build and focus on my endurance (long runs) My average running pace is about to get an ego check.
2. Weekly Hill workouts
It's not called rough creek for nothing. I've heard the trail is a constant up and down hilly terrain.
