I only rested Thursday and Friday for Terrapin, so my legs really didn't have much of that magic pop. That being said, I'm definitely happy with how the race unfolded. I'm fit in March and was able to fuel well enough to have a good race. High mileage really does work. It's a fine line between injury/burnout and being super fit, but if you can manage it (safely!) it works wonders. I'm solidified fan after this weekend.
After the race we laid our sleeping pads out next to the finish line to cheer in the rest of the finishers, always so happy seeing folks smiling across the finish line. Post-race and burrito, seven of us from the "adventure club" of UltraVT hiked up to an AT shelter where we happily accepted the two-beer buzz and snacked heavily before we ensconced together for a great sleep. A comical hike down in the morning with trashed quads preceded a rough recovery run to hit triple digits for the week which is a great mental boost. Time to take a liberal recovery week! Cheers.
