Day 8

Took a few days hoping the achilles would heal, but just went insane.

Walk run up along Temescal for 3 hours (much more walking than running), and things seemed to be alright, but then it got worse on the return, so I walked more than I wanted to.

Game plan: The first time I did a 100 mile week two years ago, I was actually very cautious and diligent in working up to the mileage. But this time around, my training was more erradic, and I am pretty sure the injuries were all due to erradic mileage. I didn't want to be overly committed to making myself run a weekly mileage number, but I realize now that I can't do the big weekly 35's injury free if I haven't trained with at least some milage discipline. I'm going to do the 10-15% mileage gain over the next few weeks and be ready for later November/December races. Hopefully I'll take momentum into the new year wherever I may be running and win some ultras.

Four: 55 miles
