The Long Road

I ran an ultra.

The run wasn’t an organized race. The plan was to run at least a 50K and see how close to 50 miles I could actually run. The longest distance that I had conquered was a marathon. Saturday was dedicated to answering the question of how far I can endure.

The West Orange Trail has 22 miles of paved trail and is part of the Rails to Trails program. Before the start I stopped into Tri&Run in Winter Garden to buy a Camelback and some Gu. It was a sunny day and the trail is long so I would need both the nutrition and hydration.

I ran twenty miles out before turning around for the return trip. On my way out I saw two bald eagles perched on a pole. As I headed back, I felt pretty good with my pace and with how I felt. At this point I considered finding an extra ten miles once I got back, and I stopped by the Rita’s for a delicious treat.

At mile 30 the miles started getting harder. Much harder. I had my 50K but the extra miles weren’t coming easy. Then started the walking. It was sporadic at first to ward off the pain running through my legs. The miles dragged on and the pain got worse. I wasn’t fatigued. My muscles had the energy–my legs hurt. The pounding was taking its toll.

An ultra training plan would have included a lot of weekly miles and putting in extra hours on my feet.  I had been following loosely a regular marathon program and focusing on speed work. I snuck in a 2.5 hour long run the week before to take a stab at real ultra distance preparation, but I expected to be hurting and I wanted to see how long I could run through it.

Fast or slow, the pain was just as bad at either speed. Running alongside the trail on the grass was a bit more comfortable. The last four miles I spent as much time sitting alongside the trail in the dark waiting for my nerve endings to calm as I did running. I pulled it together for the last leg into town, muttering “no pain” (Rocky iV was on TV last week).

I passed my personal challenge by running at least a 50k, but just barely. The last ten miles can barely be called running and I’m not claiming any credit for them. I’ll pick out a good 50 mile race, get some thicker soled shoes, and give it another go sometime soon.
