Well, you probably do not want to kill yourself between then and now. Do you plan on running the entire 50K or does the course lend to a run/walk type of strategy? If you plan on doing any run/walking i suggest this is what you focus on during your long runs. It is actually quite hard transitioning from running 26.2 miles straight to a run/walk in ultras. Towards the later miles in a 50K that transition can be quite tough. 8 hours for a 50K is overkill, imo, and i do not think i did more than one 8 hour run (not including races) before my 100 milers. 5 hours should be enough.
