  1. what’s max miles u are working up to? I have to idea how to train for Badwater except to run in the heat and get in a couple of 50 milers and an couple overnight runs

  2. My goal is to get in 1-2 50 mile runs or races and then get in some back to back long runs of 20-30 miles 2-3 days in a row. Of course run in the heat as well. I dont really think that overnight runs help me that much. But I may try and squeeze in a couple just in case and just because theyre fun sometimes
