Subtitle: How to fake training for a 50k trail run, an essay in two words
Unlike last year with the really late snow season and continued skiing which resulted in a DNS for the Chippewa 50k, this years crappy snow season left me with what should have been plenty of time to run.
In reality, while I was putting in some pretty decent base hours of easy aerobic exercise, I was riding my bike more and running less. I did manage to get my weekly running total up to 50k total once. I had two long runs of 25k each.
