I should add I’ve been averaging 100 miles per month 6 to 10 mile runs with 4 to 5 mile hikes with 28 to 50 lbs. Average is 600 ft elevation gain on the runs and 1500 on the hikes. Its almost impossible to stop. Yesterday I went out to do a 6 mile run and I stopped 2 miles out and walked back that never happens but I wasn’t feeling it. Let me also say that I’ve been trail running for 7 years and I got the New Alpinism, great book, I’ve pushed harder than ever last 4 months.
I have to say I’m ready to hit the trail right now.
Hi, I have a question about recovery, I have been training consistently for the last 4 months and increasing mileage. I’ve been mixing hiking and running all in the mountains. I am feeling tired and think I need to take 5 to 7 days off. Is this ok, and do you guys recommend a way to achieve a good recovery?
