This week, car troubles interfered with my workout plans a few too many times. (My car is fully repaired and my credit card bill is higher now).
After this past week, I am officially in pre-relay taper. Although, I will be "tapering" my long runs, I will not be backing off on my workouts as I normally do before a race. I am one month away from my climb and since I am not "racing" this relay for time, the mountain training has to remain in the schedule. Our start time for the race (3 pm) was announced today.
I definitely did a minimum of 3 Rainier focused workouts this week. I am upping that number in the following weeks in a final push to not fail on this climb. :)
I had a running personal distance record on Saturday of over 14 miles, even if I did split it into two runs.
I also did a personal best as to time spent walking up and down stairs: 2 hours. LOL. I did take a 12 minute break after the first hour before starting the second hour. I know, I'm a pansy. If it helps, I was carrying 36 lbs in my pack, and will add 5 lbs to the pack this week.
On Sunday, we also sucked it up and ordered all the clothing part of the equipment we will need for the climb. I was hoping to be closer to my weight goals before I had to do this, but time has run out. (I had to allow time for shipping, etc.)
In random Avery news, Avery actually sat in the front part of a grocery cart successfully in TWO different stores today - that's a first.

How did your training week go??
Anyone in Columbus that wants to run one of our relay legs with us as a companion runner, please let me know. We are especially looking for companions on the trails for each leg that will be in the dark.
Am I the only one that gets nervous trail running in the dark?
