      Hi Lynda,

      July 8th is the Silver Rush 50 in Leadville. That should be week 7 of the 100 miler PR Plan for Master’s. Can you give me some recommendations on how best to set up that week of training?

      Thank you much,

      John

      Replace week 7 with week 12 to be on top form for Silver Rush 50.

      Also, to move race day to Saturday July 8th, miss out week 12 day 1 and move everything else up one day. Take a day off on Sunday July 9th.

      Have a great race!

      Silver Rush 50 went great on the 8th. Took the 9th off, got busy today at work and had to take today off as well. This is week 8 and calls for an R&R week but i feel really good and fresh from 2 days off after Silver Rush. I substituted last week with week 12 as you recommended and feel really fresh now.

      Should i proceed this week as planned with week 8 being an R&R week. I feel like thats too much rest considering I substituted last week with week 12 to be fresh for the race. Should i do week 7 this week that i skipped last week?

      Thanks in advance!
