McNaughton Run

Saturday morning training run at McNaughton. Went better than the last one. I was able to get in 4 hrs. 20 min. at a reasonable pace. Saturday was one of those days with perfect training conditions--clear trails, temps starting in the lower 30's warming to 40, sunshine. Hydrated better this time.

The creeks were surprisingly low considering the flooding we've seen at the Mackinaw and other places this past week. Things got a bit mucky on the second loop as the mud thawed out, which actually is good training in anticipation of possible rain/mud on race day.

Next long run in two weeks, somewhere in the 4 3/4 to 5 hour range.

Enjoyed reading your blog. Are you planning on doing the Mcnaughton 50/100/150? Something about somehow getting a 150 under my belt intrigues me.

it's amazing that there are already 46 people registered for the 150 miler. it's a well put together race, you'd definitely enjoy it.
