We still have spots open for the Leadville training camp (the camp is in Leadville but not specifically for the Leadville 100 as we are not affiliated with them in any way.) Last night I was trying to get a grip on how to balance my training for the Silver Rush 50s and I realized that in the 12 weeks leading up to the Leadville 100 run I averaged 41 miles per week. I really think replacing mindless run volume with strength work and specific training is a useful idea. For Silver Rush I should be capable of averaging 41 miles a week.
Today was 4200ft of climbing (2000 run/ 2200 bike) and sort of a rest day. My bike wattage was OK but my HR couldn't elevate past 140 so I'll keep a little perspective outside of the numbers and rest which will cost me a 50,000 ft climbing week. I'm at about 36,000 right now I think.
