I'm sure some of my doubts about whether my knees could withstand ultra-training and racing has crept into my blogging. I've used a regular pattern of combining fast hiking with my running and today came across another blog that helps support this approach! The Running Man writes about it here.
I continued the taper today and resigned myself to hiking. The weather is great and there's a temptation to head out and work some trails with more vigor...but I'll hold off a bit. I'm sure I'll be running some quality yet this week but today is for rest and recovery.
5 miles in the AM. The regular hike yet tonight.
