Below is the 11 miles of the Garmin data I did collect on Saturday. The first 2 miles of the graph were only run once on the first lap, the other 4 laps were run between miles 2 and 11 on the graph. So it wasn't a flat course for sure.
I felt incredibly good this morning so I went out for 30:00 and jogged super easy and walked the steep ups and downs. My legs feel really good, no soreness or tightness anywhere. Kind of disappointed in that to be honest. When I look back on Saturday I don't consider it a "race", more of just a run. I had so much left in me, which is a good thing for sure for my first 50 miles. The mental break through (of sorts) I had on Saturday hasn't gone away and I still feel the shift in my thinking. It's nice that at 38 years old I can still find such a new and unexplored place in my brain and my spirit to explore and learn.
I looked at my training logs leading up to Saturday (not counting race week) and I averaged 48.9 miles per week for the 10 weeks before the race. That is interesting to me with my "more is better" mentality and something to consider when I start training for Leadville. I'm still not sure what approach I'll take, I still have to get in to the race! So I am getting ahead of myself. The entry information for Leadville seems odd to me. Race fees "TBD" and they'll "start accepting applications" on January 2nd. And "the field will be limited". That's all they are providing. I would expect something similar for a first time race. Which leads me to believe I still need work on relaxing and going with the flow a bit more... but I digest. The lower weekly volume definitely let me run and then absorb long runs more effectively which is a huge key to running ultras (from what I understand). For Leadville I'll probably not deviate much from marathon training that has worked for me in the past, I'll tweak the longest runs by quite a bit for sure though.
And just to clarify, the "but I digest" quote is from Family Guy.
