First Week of 55K Training Complete

Been doing a lot of reading and ended up modifying the hal higdon novice 2 with back-to-back runs on the weekend.

Finished up the first week with 36 miles. Going to be staying at a minimum of 35 mpw with two peaks of 45 mpw. My longest run will be 20 miles (twice).

Elevation gain & trail running are two things I will be concentrating on. I want to ensure I can handle the course elevation ( two loops of ascent 747m / descent 743m)

Fun times!
