I still need to reserve a place for Thursday and Friday night in the Squaw Valley area. And, we will need a place to stay when we head back to the Bay Area for a few days after the race.
I'm starting to wonder what the snow conditions will be like on race day, given the recent storms that have hit the Sierra. In 2005, I ran through a lot of miles of snow on the course. We were lucky that it never got really hot that day. However, I think it was 1995 that was known as the Fire and Ice year at WS. They had a lot of snow in the high country and extreme heat in the canyons that day. There's no sense worrying about something I can't control though.
Most importantly, I have to continue to get ready for the race. I had a great weight workout this morning - 3x12s of the following lifts:
- Deadlifts (185#)
- Incline Dumbbell Presses (2x40#)
- Bulgarian Split Squats (2x20#)
- Mixed Grip Lat Pulldowns (90#, 90#, 100#)
- Romanian Deadlifts (135#)
- Cable Woodchops using the Rope hold (80#)
I did the first two lifts as a superset, and then the same with the next two and the next two, with 60 seconds rest between sets. A number of those weights were new highs for sets of 12.
Then, 15 minutes of stair climber intervals.
Tomorrow, I'll probably be a bit sore, and I'll run easily for 2 hours to wrap up the hard part of my workout week.
Monday morning, I'll step on a scale again to see how I'm doing there.
