Training Journal 9/3-9/9

Monday, September 3 to Sunday, September 9: Race week.  Ran the Plain 100 on Saturday.  Dropped at mile 62 due to an unusual, deep feeling fatigue in my legs.  Felt the fatigue very early on, just hoped that it would go away.  Averaged 12:53 (moving speed) and 14:35 (average speed) during the loop on a highly technical, rutted out and very sandy course with 14,800 feet of vertical.  Pretty happy with those stats but disappointed that I was did not have any power in my legs.  More to come on the details of the race.
