Starting to periodize my mileage with the goal of ending up in a good place for the Gorge 50K. After 2 weeks of 30+ miles, I’m going to dial it back to around 20 before increasing mileage next week.
I haven’t run since Sunday so… this is generally how I’m feeling after 3 days of run rest:
My right heel is still a little bit sore from descending council crest. After switching to the Brooks Pure Grits I definitely felt more confident opening it up coming down the mountain… which resulted in a little too much heel striking.
