Believe it or not I just did 17.5 miles on the Pinhoti Trail this past Saturday! My gf Sandie did her first ever ultra, Georgia Jewel 35 miler, and I did the second half with her.
Tough terrain. It was raining like crazy but we did it! We walked and ran. The 17.5 miles we covered in 4 hrs 45 mins. Hip held up great! My endurance needs some help though.
I am running regularly now, 5 days a week. About 25-30 total miles. Still slow and still really short strides.
Getting ready for Umstead 100 in April! 🙂
