It's two months and counting 'til the Wasatch Back! I can't believe it's so close... seems like so long ago that it was first proposed.
My question for those who've done this kind of relay before (or anyone for that matter): How important is it to do two or three different runs over the course of one day to be best prepared for the 24-hour relay? Right now, I'm running three days a week, a short recovery run (4 miles), a medium tempo run (8 miles) and a long, slow run (12 miles) mixed in with three other days of crosstraining. While I have done double workouts in one day (crosstraining in the morning and running at night), I haven't yet attempted to do more than one run workout in a day. I'm sure doing two run workouts in a day wouldn't be too tough, but I'm wondering how often I should do them and if I should even add in a third. I'm often known to overcompensate and overtrain, which never has good results, so I don't want to risk doing too much with the race coming up so quickly.
Ideas? Suggestions? Two cents?
