So my recovery from the Hells Hills 50k was easy enough, and I actually got in 22 miles in the Mourne Mountains last weekend, and am now tapering again for another race! The first few runs after that 50k were on the slow side, but I seem to be back down to a normal pace, and the trail runs have felt almost easy. I went up to Howth today and did the circuit there and it was a breeze.

Hopefully that implies this coming race will go well. It's 40 miles, in Wales, in the Brecon Beacons; since I haven't run it before and it's very steep I'm anticipating a lot of, shall we say, human error. I've done the distance before on some hairy terrain, but this is also a very minimally supported race. We'll see! I'm going through my standard pre-race alarm, like Ben getting sick this last week and me wondering if I would get a cold right before a race oh no, or then falling on some stairs directly on my kneecap which was hurting a lot but seems to be getting better. As long as I make it to the start line without incapacitating myself, then I'll be pleased.

Once again I have the goal to enjoy the run and not get too down on myself at any point. And this is really a training run for the Mourne Ultra in June, so whatever happens I can call it good training. Just so long as I'm not incapacitated after, and can hang out with Ben and [ profile] erindubitably and [ profile] marrog. Should be fun!
