My long runs this training period (approx 8 weeks) will start at 6 miles working up to an 11-12 miler a few weeks before my race. I'm going to start looking for a water belt this week so I don't have to worry about looping close to home on these longer run.
I'm going to through in some hill workouts hopefully about once a week also since this race is very heavy in hills. I think this work will also help with my overall strength.
Training mileage should top out around 60-70 miles per week, with July mileage coming close to 200 miles for the month. We'll see how this goes over the next few weeks, and I'll adjust if I have to.
I'll leave you with a few pictures of my Fourth of July......
