I haven't been doing ultras very long but have found the weekly
long run to be the most important. As long as you feel you are
recovering fine then you should be in great shape for AC. My long run
is usually 30 miles. If you have hills to run in that is better yet.
I am from eastern NC and it is flat here. As they say we are all "an
experiment of one" and that really applies to how much mileage your
body can handle. The highest weekly mileage I do is 95 miles. Right
now I am doing a lot of races so I am in the race-recover-race mode
and rarely do a long run.
See you there, Vinny
