Despite feeling pretty good after Leadville, I decided to take things super easy and just let things heal the way they needed to. I plan on running - and running uphill - consistently this week to get the legs back in the swing of things and ready for Wasatch. I have 97 Horsetooth summits on the year, so will look to take that to 100 exactly in getting ready for Wasatch. 100 summits sounds like a lucky place to be. A minute over Ian for each summit, perhaps?
Anyway, starting to get excited for Wasatch, the final leg in this summer's running journey. It's been a lot of fun so far, and I look forward to capping it off with a strong finale. My legs feel virtually fresh, which is a sensation I've never had so soon after a 100-miler, and one that has me confident. Gonna give it my all.
