Finished up at 5:25 AM. A short nap and then back to The Woodlands where Adam & Kelli’s hot tub awaited!

Rocky Raccoon 100. Ran firm to 50 (9;40) and decided today wasn’t the day. Finished just fast enough to get a sub-24. Lots of walking in second half to speed recovery ahead of Pi-r2. 69OA/6M50.

In Texas checking out the trails for Rocky. They’ve fixed them up quite a bit in the last two years (since the 60” rainfall), but they are still pretty technical trails.

(rest day)

Taking my off day to assess the situation going into Rocky. Fitness is way off: last year's VDOT's for the Frostbite races: 49.9, 51.8, 55.6, 52.2; this year's: 44.5, 49.7, 50.2, 51.0. That's to be expected as last year I was coming right off marathon training whereas this year I'm in the middle of my off-season. Still, it is cause for caution in the early miles.

On the upside, despite not training it all that much, I'm feeling pretty comfortable on trail right now, particularly at night. Maybe I can avoid slowing down as much as I usually do after dark.

I plan on taking a lot of early walk breaks. The 9:1 running seems to work pretty well. Rather than be super strict about it; I'll just try to find a minute of uphill and/or super technical trail every 10 minutes or so to walk. Most of the course is pretty fast and I don't want to squander that.
