Big Horn 100 Training & Preparation Part 4: North Shore Running

This week I was able to get a couple solid runs in up north on the Superior Hiking Trail with a friend who is training for the Big Horn 50 miler. The plan was to camp out and get a couple good long runs in over the weekend. We managed to get the long runs in but only made it one night camping. The temps where we were started to dip below 20F, which was about the limit of our camping gear.

I am not nearly doing the same high mileage weeks that I have done in the, instead trying to focus on 2-4 key workouts a week.

That is why I recommend celebrating the training milestones that you do come upon. Milestones are not always easy to spot, particularly the smaller ones. Remember that the very act of training is pushing your body and mind to do things that it is not comfortable doing and maybe even pushing yourself to new limits.
