What's Happening From Now

Running:  up to 16.10.15

Distance: 3,459.1 kms in 41 weeks + 2 days at  ave  84.3 kms ( down from 86.8 kms from week 39 )

October:  72.3 kms

Altitude:  59,642 metres in 41 weeks + 2 days at  ave  1,455 metres ( down from 1,510 metres from week 39 )

October:  754 metres

These figures are falling dramatically as the rest & recovery came to an end but the return to running has not yet reached weekly average.
However, for the week ending today, Sunday, running kms were 63.8. Altitude gain for the week was 1,372 metres getting close to that weekly average.
I haven't really settled on a next target event, but it won't be this year. I will use the next 2 months to rebuild the base, both strength & endurance, then make a race decision. It will probably be close to home, so may be the CBR 100 km in mid March. It's hilly but not too difficult and only 100 kms.
I have a couple of females targeting some really tough mountain events in late March/early April so will have some company for summer training. They know many of the usual training trails, but some will be new to them. That will help maintain the enthusiasm during the hot summer heat.
Can't wait to ramp up the running now, the mental side is alive & well. Let's go running.
