Week 25 - A Good One

Year to Date to Week 25

Distance:  1,894.05 kms in 25 weeks at ave  75.76 kms  (  up from 74.4 kms last week )
Last week:  107.85 kms

Altitude:  39,019 metres in 25 weeks at ave  1,440 metres ( up from 1,420 metres last week )
Last week:  1,922 metres

Today was the end of week 25 for the year, and a good one running all 7 days if you count a short 3.2 kms last Wednesday as a running day.

The weekly target at this stage is to consolidate around the 110 kms, and increase all through July and August to top out with a couple of weekly totals at the 165 kms ( just over 100 miles ).
Given that most of my long Saturday training is undulating to hilly, I work on the lack of distance will be made up by the amount of climbing I do. Strength will ultimately help more than pushing beyond my limits chasing distance.
At this stage, the plan has been written, I must follow it to avoid burn out, injury or sickness.
Really need the winter weather to hold to cold & dry, no more rain. If we get rain, please let there be snow on the western mountain range so we can get a run done up there to enjoy a proper winter wonderland.


  • Ticking over nicely. Yes, give me snow on the mountains rather than cold rain any day. I'm over cycling in the rain.
