Training Journal 6/10-6/16

Monday, June 10-June 16, 2013: It felt right this week to begin to taper for San Juan Solstice 50 miler (June 22).  The SJS50 is most definitely one of the toughest 50 milers in the US with 12,800 ft of climbing and high altitude running (7,000-12,000 ft).  So I'm taking the challenge seriously and letting my body rest in anticipation.  There is a chance I won't get into the race since I'm still on the wait list.  Also this week I spent some significant time slack lining (6.5 hrs!), what an amazing workout!! Core, legs, arms, everything!
Slack lining this week.  It was so much fun I got out most days and practiced. 
Monday: 2 runs for total of 17.5 miles: 4 mile easy AM (1hr 1200ft) plus 13.5 mile run PM 2,000ft/2.5hr- Twisp to Winthrop via trails.
Tuesday: 6 miles easy Patterson & Winthrop Trail. Legs are feeling tired. Maybe time to taper for SJS50? 1,600ft/1.25hr
Wednesday: 7 mile run from Whatcom Falls to Boulevard/Sehome (500/1hr). 2 mile easy PM run. 8.5 mile bike ride. 1 hr slack lining.
