So in the few days since the Knoxville Marathon I feel zapped. Completely zapped. I think I experienced "The Wall" for the first time during mile 24 on Sunday. I am officially not exercising until Saturday. Even when I start back I will be in taper. I am coming up with the "race" strategy. I know there are several areas I will be hiking instead of running.
I will be shooting to keep my heart rate in the 140's for the 50k. How long will the 50k take? I don't know, but to be sure after this race I will be done with "long" distance running for a while. My next marathon will probably come during my first full iron distance race next year. Please enjoy the 50k elevation map below.
I will be hiking the areas in green.
