When do 100 mile trail races become training runs?

With AAWT on hold, we are busy doing what we love doing: running trails. I am currently in the San Juan Mountains, part of the Rockies in Colorado, USA, preparing to run the Hardrock100. Being held at altitude I am spending 3 weeks hiking and running the trails to prepare. I can't help thinking when I am out there daily for hours how this is great AAWT training. I am updating my progress here:

Meanwhile, Phil is only weeks away from heading to Europe and his big run at Mont Blanc. He is currently logging huge weeks on trails to build a solid base for his UTMB race.

All this preparation will surely stand us in good stead when we finally get to Walhalla!
