Too Busy to Train

My 50 miler training isn't going to plan. Actually, I don't have a plan, but if I did then it would include more long runs than I've been doing. After scrapping the long run on Friday I hoped to get it in on Sunday, but since Mrs. Trail Monster and I just bought a house and are in the middle of moving I ended up with only a short road run on Sunday.

Sunday: roads - Falmouth to Portland
time: 57:00
distance: 7.8 miles
pace: 7:30

gear: Saucony Grid Sinister

Tuesday: TMR TNR
time: 1:18:22
distance: 8.8 miles
pace: 8:54

gear: Inov-8 Flyroc 310

Wednesday: roads - Falmouth
time: 1:12:30
distance: 9.6 miles
pace: 7:33

gear: Brooks Cascadia

Thursday: trails - Bradbury (Bruiser course marking)
time: 1:18:00
distance: 8.0
pace: 9:45

gear: Inov-8 Roclite 295

No long run for me this week with the Bruiser coming up on Sunday. I may try to run the course on Friday, mark the course (with plenty of help hopefully) on Saturday, then run some or all of the course later on Saturday, then race it on Sunday. This should make for a good solid week of training, but without the long run. Hopefully next weekend I'll have the time for a good 4-5 hour long trail run!

All of those runs are certainly respectable distances. And those are fast paces on the Falmouth roads...
