Next weekend I will take part in a couple of events to make up a big mileage weekend, 5 weeks out from the North Face 100 run. This will be the Bedrock 50 ( 52 km) race at Oxford, North Canterbury on Saturday, and the Arrowsmith Thee Run ( 42km), in the Ashburton High Country, on the Sunday. I hope to have enough energy for these. The intention is to complete rather than compete. The terrain and scenery should be awesome, and with the NF100 in my mind all the time, the hill work should provide a suitable workout.
