Ran a very comfortable 17:13 in the Resurrection Pass 100 this weekend. I did everything right. I ate well, hydrated well, and stuck to a very mellow pace. In the end I felt more like I had run for 2 hours rather than 17. The only significant fatigue I felt was due to not sleeping for 36 hours. As soon as I got some sleep I felt great. Today I feel pretty much fully recovered! I have never (until now) run an ultra and not had any soreness after. This is definitely a very good sign as to my fitness right now.
I'm still in Anchorage. Was supposed to get back to Juneau yesterday but my flight was cancelled due to a volcanic ash cloud. Maybe I'll write a little more about this run when I get home tonight. For now I've got to find a way to kill 6 more hours before the next flight down to Juneau. Hey, I know, I'll go for a run! Might be the only time I ever get a chance to go running the day after a 100 miler.
