6.2 bf miles in today right around freezing here, which puts my week just shy of 20 miles... not so great for me... but I guess pretty good considering this was my 72hr work week, and well its gloomy winter time. Also Thursday did 69 flights of stairs at work, Friday 80 flights, and tonight I will try to do 80-100. Holy schnikes thats cold! Wow that is a lot of mileage. You may have the quickest progression that I've seen yet on the forums. I'm a bit envious, I've pushed myself so hard, wanted to do an ultra in a 'few' years, and its been 4 and still no ultra, and you're tackling it in what, 1 year? I've been debating maybe trying one next year but lots of doubts after my marathon in October kicked my butt. Have great luck! I get tight/sore calves, but as far as I can tell the rest of my legs are fine. Calves have pretty much been my main problem since day 1. They have grown much stronger and adapted, but it seems like no matter what I do I'm always on the edge of what they seem to be able to handle. I hardly ever have any other leg soreness except for sometimes after a race. Welcome back Songbird and Merry Christmas! Hope your feeling better now.
