    100 miles is really difficult. You should have at least several 70 to 80 mile rides under your belt before you do the 100. You probably could do the 100, but at what cost? You don’t want to do it and be crying and walking at the end. There is nothing wrong with either cancelling that event or doing a shorter version of it (if offered). No stigma at all. You can always keep training and do another one later in the year.

    I had been training to do a half marathon a few years ago and then realized after I had done 8 miles one day that I just didn’t really like running enough to want to do 13 miles LOL! So I stopped training for it.

      You are right, Lori and I will most likely be doing the shorter distance in a few weeks. The Harvest Century is at the end of September and that gives me enough time to get my mileage up to do the 100 at that one.

      That is too funny about your half marathon! At least you figured that out before you were running it!

    I’m actually going through the same issue. I’ve not been running for over week. I’ve been trying to rehab my MCL and I have a 50K race coming on 29SEP. I would call the race off for an injury but nor for training not going right.

      Calling it off for injury is a good reason to.
