I went out to the National Ultra Endurance Grizzly 100 in Big Bear, CA, intending to race the 50k. My buddy convinced me at the last second to do the 75k! This was quite a challenge for me and a huge spike in TSS, since I was just completing week 10 of the CAT I XC build plan-totally different kind of training! I went ahead and paced myself well and ended up with 4th place in open class! Pretty exciting to see that my fitness is there, even at the longer time-frame stuff, as long as I pace well.
