February - One Week Done


Distance:  90.7 kms
Altitude gain:  1238 metres


Distance:  518.45 kms
Altitude gain:  10,038 metres

Two long training runs in last 8 days has given a good boost to confidence with the near 6 hour last Sunday and a near 5 hour today.
Contrary to what would be expected from me, both had little elevation up or down, today, a bit over 500 metres.

However, on both occasions, I was looking for distance & time on feet. So really, a change from strength training to endurance training.

These two long runs plus 4 runs under 10 kms, one only 2.5 kms, one at 11 kms & one at 15 kms has resulted in 144.95 kms covered in past 8 days. It's not that difficult really to build up some big totals.

No problems as long as I stick to the plan, focus on the next main event & still keep in mind the long term goal for the year.

Weather has been very helpful this past week with warm sunny days. Plenty of cross training on the bike, plus a few trips to the river have helped with recovery.

A return to the mountains next weekend. It will be nice to get away from the hard surface bike paths & hit the dirt.

Looking forward to a solid February, building up both the distances & the altitude.
