My coach goes ultra this weekend

Good luck to my coach, Craig Howie (of Howie Endurance Project), who is running the Bighorn Mountain 50-mile Wild and Scenic Trail Run on Sunday! He has been a great example of consistency in training, and it has been awesome to see his training data through Garmin Connect. I remember when he asked me to give him access to my own training account so he could review my training data along the way. He said, “I won’t ask you to do anything that I’m not willing to do myself, so here’s my login and password to my own account.”

While I don’t lurk in his account, it has been pretty cool to see what he’s up to in his own ultramarathon training. His weekly mileage is astronomical compared to mine. Yet, I can see the same strategies and theories at work for him that he is trying to apply to my training.

So, have a great run Craig! You’re a great model to follow!
