Week 32 - No Long Run

Running:  Year to Date

Distance:  2,341.1 kms in 32 weeks at ave  73.2 kms ( up from 73.1 kms in week 31)

Last week:  75.25 kms

Altitude:  83,698 metres in 32 weeks at ave  2,616 metres ( down from 2,622 metres in week 31)

Last week:  2,401 metres

Some crappy weather today and a recovery day mid week resulted in a marking time week.
In fact, today, Saturday is the regular long run day, was planned to be quite hilly & long. But heaps of rain, falling as snow up high, and gale force winds on the mountains meant is was a little dangerous to be solo out in the extreme elements.
Friday afternoon & overnight, winds on the mountains were around the 100 kmph speed. Combined with rain, the wind chill factor had temps down near -10 deg C.
Long run now moves to Sunday, so next week should show an improvement in the figures above as I focus on getting a suitable ultra distance & hilly run done in the next month or so. Living now on an island, you can't just jump in the car & drive somewhere to run interstate. Apart from the extra expense, getting a spot on the boat which is always full with cars & freight, means booking well in advance.
Upping the time on feet aspect is what I will need to concentrate on now. Hopefully, I have enough kms for endurance & strength from the hills to get through.
All good at the moment, can I hold together physically to do what the head wants to do. Time will tell.
