First day of my training for the Hallucination 100 Mile race at Run Woodstock.

The other day I put together my training plan for my first 100 miler. Today was day 1 and I was scheduled for 17 miles. I plan to do all of my long runs on Sundays since I never work Sundays. Well, today I ended up having to work, and it was a shift in the middle of the day. Because of that I had to switch around this week’s training plan, so I ended up doing tomorrow’s 5 miler instead of the 17 I planned on. I guess that’s why they say to write your training plan in pencil instead of pen.

Tomorrow should be a great day for the 17 miles. It’s supposed to be 40 degrees and partly cloudy. That’s about as good as you can hope for when it’s mid-February in Michigan.

Other exciting stuff…
Only 20 days until my next ultramarathon! I’m really looking forward to heading to California for my race. A 50k trail race in the mountains of Malibu sounds absolutely amazing. That day my brother and I will be driving from LA to Vegas to celebrate.

Today also marks a big milestone for Tim’s Running Reviews. I now have over 200 follwers on WordPress! When I started this blog back in October, I really had no idea that it would take off like it has. I wanted to thank all of my followers, Facebook fans, and everyone else who has read, liked, and commented on my blogs.

    Sheesh, a 100-miler? Intense. I was looking at the Woodstock 100k as my “next” challenge — I use quotation marks because I have yet to run a 50k or 50-miler, so I can hardly say I’m ready for the next rung of the ultra ladder.

    Best of luck!

    mountain trails of malibu sound amazing! one of my future goals is definitely more destination races. seems like a perfect way to see more of the world!

    • I go to California once a year tocsee my brother. Last year when I was out there I ran the LA marathon. It was awesome. I love to travel for races although it gets expensive. I really wish I could do it more.
