MAY Training Recap

This was a busy month, it was time for my A race the Ice Age Trail 50 mile!  Due to the race and recovery that followed my total running mileage decreased from April.  You can read about my race in my Ice Age recap.  My training going into Ice Age was consistent, and that coupled with the tweaks I have made to my diet and the use of VESPA allowed me to feel great during the race, PR, and recover by the next day which was a surprise.  Following Ice Age I ran for fun and power hiked some hilly trails.  I also took a much needed mental break from running.  I am a big believer in rest both physically and mentally and will write abut this in the future!
