B2B2B 50K's - 1 of 3

100 miles is far, which adds an element of complexity to training for this distance.  In almost any other race I would run the distance at least once before toeing the line.  Luckily, there is a way to creatively simulate the physical breakdown caused by running 100 miles: back to back long runs.  The advantage of dividing the miles into multiple days is that at the end of each run I can have a smoothie, stretch and get a good night sleep.  Today was the first of three back to back to back 50k (31 miles +/-) trail runs.
