There is still a lot of snow, but at least some friends came out to enjoy the warming temperature.

With Week 6 out of the way, I am officially one third of the way done with my training. Thinking about it that way really puts things into perspective. A lot of the time during training, especially in the early stages, it is hard to picture race day. I tend to think about all the work that is ahead of me. I can definitely say that continuing with the "Pre-50k" phase has really started to challenge me, but also shown me how my fitness has continued to improve as the weeks have gone by.

Just when I thought that the only trail pictures I would have are the ones in my mind while running on the treadmill, I was finally able to get outdoors for a few runs. The snowpocalypse has made it pretty hard to get outdoors, but thankfully I enjoyed what little time I've been able to have in the winter wonderland.

After a nice cut back week, I was excited to start the next training block. The first 4 weeks of the Glacier Ridge Trail 50k training plan were the "Endurance" phase. With week 5, I began the next 4 weeks of the "Pre-50k" block which is designed to help give me the fitness needed for the more difficult workouts ahead. The Pre-50k phase has a lot of hill workouts, and the ever popular, back-to-back long runs!
