    taper week, lots of short sharp work in prep for first 50 miler of the season

    m: 5 miles at 7 pace am. pm: 10k treadmill at 6;20 pace
    t; am; 5 miles at 7 pace. pm: easy track, 4 x 200s, 1 x 800, 1 x 600, 2 x 400 all at sub 5 pace
    w: 3.5 miles at 8 pace
    t; 3.5 miles at 6:20 pace in ohio
    f: 9 mile trail run on the ice age route..
    s: Ice Age 50 mile trail race. 7th 6:36
    s: Nothing.. 12 hour drive back.. first day of no exercise since April 1st last year..

    Race went well, was hoping for a Western States spot, top 3, but top class field, it was won by Olympian Max King (montrail sponsored, 2nd was a soloman sponsored 2:20 marathon runner,

    The race preview is here: http://www.irunfar.com/2014/05/2014-...e-preview.html

    So I knew it was going to be tough, felt off from the start but held in and finally after 20 miles felt good and pushed through the field to finish 7th, thought I'd run quicker but place wise I'd not have caught 6th Zach anyway. It was only 70F but early season heat always hurts, race report is here:
    http://www.irunfar.com/2014/05/2014-...#idc-container

    Class field with many stars DNFing due to a fast start and heat, I ran a sensible race, beat some good runners so pretty happy, hard racing a course you've never seen against experienced top runners but enjoyed it.

    9 weeks with no form of training and started again this week with a couple of 8 milers, only road miles though. God I've lost so much time and fitness and am well depressed.

    Great day out on Kinder today, did 7 of the Kinder Dozen. A couple of clubmates were doing the dozen so I tagged along for a bit.
    Cracking weather, great route, lots of fresh water and fairly quiet!

    13 miles - 6,000ft - 4 hrs 20.
