Attempting Ultra Training

While I may have run many marathons I have yet to actually train for anything longer. A few years back I was registered for a 50K but was injured and unable to run trails until just a week prior so I wasn't able to train or run the race. 2 weeks ago I finished RnR NOLA (recap is coming this week!) and using that as part of 50K training. With just under 5 weeks to go I am focusing on the 50K (with some speedwork too since I have a half in 2 months) while still being smart and listening to my body. I also have this week off work, yay!, so getting in lots of focused workouts hoping to stick with a good plan once back to work. The past few weeks have meant getting back out with friends and pushing each other to run faster and further while working through stresses of life and motherhood.
