Ok, so it was only 100 kilometers but still, a good week for me. I upped my mileage, and also did a moderate hill workout on Thursday which didn't seem to bother my hamstring any. The only run that really bothered it much was the Saturday CRUD long run, in which we did encounter some hilly snow in the upper part of Bear Creek Park. Given the good last few weeks, I am now planning on running the McNaughton 100 Mile Trail race on April 12. I don't know a lot about it, but it is 10 loops of mostly singletrack; looks like it is rolling the whole way with quite a bit of cumulative elevation gain, but no long hills. It should be a good one to do with no crew, since I can get my stuff every 10 miles. Karl has the CR at 17:40something, which seems doable on paper, but anything can happen in a 100. I'll make a time prediction prior to the race.
