Gradually easing back into the mileage. Week two of the non-ultra "train for backpacking and doing an ultra in twelve weeks" training plan that I wrote on a piece of scrap paper while flying over the mid-west. Its very scientific.
I'm a little bit obsessive with the ultra reading/researching/wanting to go bust a fifty mile week thing of late. During a meeting yesterday I was visualizing setting up a fifty-miler inside my office building and wondering how many laps it would take.
All these sweet Western States 100 race reports of running yourself into the medical tent, hallucinations of forest animals and continuous puking, and eating pork and beans from a can during the race, from a few days ago, just make me want to go give it a try....
