Week 48 - Getting Close to Targets
Distance: 3,743.25 kms in 48 weeks at ave 78.0 kms ( down from 78.05 km at week 47)
Last week: 74.85 kms
Altitude: 94,855 metres in 48 weeks at ave 1,976 metres ( up from 1,953 metres at week 47)
Last week: 3,050 metres
November: 7,223 metres in 24 run days at ave 300 metres per run.
With year drawing to a close, there are two challenges to be met with only December to go.
Getting past 4000 kms would seem to be attainable if altitude challenge of 100,000 metres is achieved.
A couple of good vert training runs this week helped reduce the target nicely. One run last Saturday up to Collins Bonnet ( height aboe sea level 1,260 metres) yielded 1,000 metres and another run up to Mt Nelson Signal Station gave 888 metres.
Add on a couple of 230 metres days and a good week considering a rest day on Tuesday.
Ewen, I have considered putting my data on Strava, but I've checked the mountain running athletes on Skyrunning Strava and they put me to shame.
Leading Aussie ladies are at almost 160,000 metres for the year with a month to go with 4500 kms of running all at 5' 30" km pace. I think I'll just keep my figures secret, just the few who read this post will know.
