21 Weeks Done

Running:  Year to Date

Distance:  1517.75 kms in 21 weeks at ave  72.27 km ( up from 69.6 kms )

Last week: 126.25 kms

Altitude gain:  28,261 metres in 21 weeks at ave 1,346 metres ( up from 1317 metres )

Last week: 1917 metres

The last 2 weeks have been really good showing the benefit of consistent running.
Both March & April were disrupted by many & varied outside events. Now that not much is happening outside of work & home, it allows a routine.
The benefits of strength from the hills and the endurance from the distance running have had added benefits as my training pace has also improved.
At this stage, I've done no specific speed work except I try to run the gentle down hills as quick as I can.
A long run of 72 kms over most of the AnzacUltra2015 course last Saturday was great. No problems from the run, the next day off just to consolidate the training. At the moment, all good.
Another couple of specific training days coming up in next few weeks in June, then in July & August will able to ramp it up.
