My wife's family vacations in Minnesota every summer for 10 days. I have to go. The vacation falls exactly 4-5 weeks before Vineman IM, in which I'll be participating. Its an ideal location for training. Beautiful crisp clear lakes, long deserted rolling hill roads and a fairly long dirt running path. I'm planning my own "epic" week, partly because I love to train, partly in preparation for Vineman and partly because I will have LOTS of time, which is normally in short supply. I plan on spending 4-6 hours a day training (broken up with a day or two of rest, lots of napping and a handful of "quality" workouts). I know that for some of you animals this might be normal, but I'll be going from 12-15 hours a week, up to 30+, but just for the week. I'll cut back if I can't handle it, but I'm planning on going as big as I can.
It sounds fun, but is it a bad idea? Any other helpful advice?
