Week 23 - Going Well

Running: Year to Date

Distance:  1,679.7  kms in 23 weeks at ave  73.03 kms ( up from 72.9 kms in week 22)

Last week:  76.15 kms

Altitude:  56,483 metres in 23 weeks at ave  2,455 metres ( up from 2,429 metres in week 22)

Last week:  3,036 metres

Another 6 day running week so happy to average over 500 metres of vertical per day. Pity about the just over 12 kms per day, but at least the weekly total was above average.
Two good hilly runs this week, with the other four being some nice easy flatter days. The weather for almost mid winter has been beautiful, perfect sunny days with cool temps.
Next race is two weeks away but as it is only 29 kms with 900 metres of vertical, there won't be any tapering. May be a rest day before but that's all. The location is on the east coast of Tasmania, so hoping the weather will be kind.
I've had three races in Tassie since arriving here to live. Point to Pinnacle back in Nov was a cold rainy day. Not impressed as race was changed to an out and back and couldn't go to the summit of Mt Wellington.
Second race was Convicts & Wenches 50 kms in early March. Perfect conditions along bush track & sandy beaches. Third race was Compass Club south marathon in early May at the southern most point of the state. Again, weather intervened, race shortened & changed to a half marathon.
In Tasmania, make the most of good weather, it doesn't last for long especially at this time of year.


  • I was sweating buckets during my lunch run on Thursday :) Ahead of you on distance so far but winter hasn't hit yet.
