Leadville Training - 6 Weeks from race week

Mark Junkans

This is the first real hard week I’ve had, and my legs handled it well. Got some good climbing on bridges and treadmill (TM). I sure wish I lived somewhere hilly, but in Houston you take what you can get. I’m also hoping that this intense humidity will help build my mental capacity to suffer. Some runs I feel like I’m suffocating for the first couple miles, then it’s just a matter of not overheating. The high humidity makes it almost impossible for the body to cool off since the moisture just sticks to your skin and doesn’t evaporate.

Overall, I feel good, but I know I’m at a deficit for this race with no altitude and no mountains to run on.
