Week 24 - So Much Uphill

Running: Year to Date

Distance:  1,758.55 kms in 24 weeks at ave  73.27 kms ( up from 73.03 kms in weeks 23)

Last week:  78.85 kms

Altitude:  60,697 metres in 24 weeks at ave  2,529 metres ( up from 2,455 metres in week 23)

Last week:  4,214 metres

Three big vert days in the 6 running days of this week. One day over 1500 metres, one of 1200 metres and one of 850 metres made up the bulk of the total.
Again, this week has been perfect winter weather. Mild days, no rain, just cool at night ( lows around 8 deg) under mostly sunny skies. In fact, other than the lower temps, better weather than we had all summer.
Still no snow on the mountains. Just have to wait a little longer for the bad weather to arrive.
Next race event is on next weekend on the east coast holiday area of Freycinet peninsular where the world famous Wineglass Bay is located. The beach & the area are regularly named in the top 10 beaches in the world.
However, on race day, I'll just have to run with camera in hand and take a few snaps on the run. Single track running will hopefully mean a few behind me, so I had better not stop to take too many pics.
Easy week coming up, better rest & freshen up a little for the 29 kms, 900 metres of vert event.
Ewen, where would I be on the Speedygeese Strava leader board for the year ? Certainly not doing the distance of you guys anymore.


  • Yes, you'd easily win every week. I was #3 last week with 1,077m, not far behind Dave Clarke who ran the Kowen trail half. I was very happy to get ahead of trail runner Jen Bright - she's always bragging about her vert :)
