Registered for my first 100 miler! | Posted: 2007-12-17 05:27:42 | 5548 hits | View in Hi-Fi Mode

I've decided to throw down and do the Tahoe Rim Trail 100 Mile Race. It's on my 33rd birthday... how could I resist?

'Course... it'll be pretty insane. I have no doubt about that. It's a double loop, though, so I think that'll really help out in terms of making sure the second half can be easily navigated... in the dark. (!!!)

How does one prepare for this kind of undertaking? I'm open to suggestions...

My current thinking is something like this: try and break down training into a series of long lead up runs and hikes and whatnot. I'm going to do either Zane Grey 50 miler or the Miwok 100k to help prepare -- both of those runs sound like they'll dish out a healthy helping of brutality.

Right now, it's kinda hard to do really serious training just due to the time of year -- it's cold, dark, obligations on the weekends and whatnot -- but I've been reasonably consistent about getting in around 30 miles a weekend, which for me is pretty good. I'd like to push that up into the high 30's / low 40's in January, maybe get off my ass and start swimming again in the mornings during the week.

The Pemberton 50k is coming up in Feb... still have to decide about that thing. I'm not sure how I feel about that course...
