I feel really good about wear my fitness is right now. My legs are absorbing whatever I throw at them, and while I'm only running ~70-76 mpw right now compared to the 85 I was running this fall, I feel strong and faster. I'm not slacking off so much as just focusing more since I'm not running anything longer than a 50k until August.
This weekend I'm going out with Rudy from the VT Tri team and whoever else might decide to tag along to do back-to-back long runs. The Saturday run will be an AT route I've wanted to do for a while but haven't since it requires stashing a car. 20 miles of singletrack with ~5500 feet of elevation gain, which is the most you can really get here without just doing hill repeats or heading north of Roanoke.
