Week 15 - Getting Harder to Mainatain Average

Running:  Year to Date

Distance:  1,509.1 kms in 15 weeks at ave  100.6 kms  ( up from 100.3 kms in week 14)

Last week:  104.6 kms

Altitude:  32,368 metres in 15 weeks at ave  2,158 metres ( down from 2,162 metres in week 14 )

Last week:  2,100 metres

The past few weeks have been a struggle to maintain let alone increase the weekly averages. There has been only one week below 100 kms in past 11 weeks. That was the week leading up to and after the 6 hour on Sat 19th March.
However, it's only 2 weeks now to Neverest, so if I can just get past these next 5-7 days without a problem, then it's time to taper. One more long hilly run on Sunday, that should do it.
Nothing too different in week just gone with a good run up Mt Rob Roy, my 74th time on this mountain on Sunday. It's close to home, off road running all the way and you get both good distance and altitude.
A little tired this week as well partly due to going back to work. I start work early, the alarm goes off at 5:15 in the morning. It's dark going to work, it's getting cool as well as autumn takes hold. I'm not an early morning person. Retirement from work is getting close and looking forward to it.
