Journey to 100: Week 26/26 Race Week


This is part of a series of posts regarding how I am preparing, planning, and training to complete the 100 miles Ultramarathon Umstead 100: Journey to 100. For all the ultrarunning series, here is Journey to 100 last week’s post, and for additional ideas, follow the link. Training for a 100.


This week is the 100 event, not much to do from a running perspective other than focus on recovery before the event.

Assessment:

Check and double-check your plan and the checklist. Do not leave anything to chance if you can help it.

Planning:

Plan ahead of what you are going to do.

Visualize and visualize some more.

Provide the final announcement to your crew and pacers to verify and review any last-minute adjustments.

Get ready to have some fun!
