I have been in "training" for one race or another since January of this year. Technically I was supposed to start following an 18-week Pfitz cycle on August 1st, which was only two weeks after my 50 mile race. In reality, I took the better part of a month to recovery and feel right before training hard again. It wasn't until GTIS in mid-August that I began to feel like myself again. Add it all up and I have been following a training plan for at least nine of the eleven months in 2011. It's exciting to me to have some time off after Las Vegas RnR to do whatever I want and just enjoy running! I am kind of hoping to get in some winter trail runs and just enjoy the mountains that we are so privileged to live near. I won't get much of a break because I'll likely start building my mileage early in the New Year. I'm looking at a 50 miler in April to start off the ultra season.
