Coming into Camp 10 Bear II (mile 70)
Getting ready to work on my feet at Camp 10 Bear II
I took a 3 mile jog on logging roads today and didn't feel bad at all. I don't have any spring in my step, of course, but no pain or stiffness either. I'll do my upper body strength work this afternoon. I have to say, the strength training I have been doing definitely helped at Vermont. Usually my arms and chest get achy and tired toward the end of a one hundred miler. At Vermont, I never got any core or arm fatigue at all. The back/hip problem didn't get worse from running 100 miles. In fact, it stopped hurting completely about 30 miles into the run and has been feeling pretty good since.
