Week 32 - Start of Taper

Running: Year to Date

Distance:  2,768.2 kms in 32 weeks at ave  86.5 kms ( down from 87.0 kms at week 31)

Last week:  70.05 kms

Altitude:  Garmin -103,321 metres in 32 weeks at ave  3,229 metres ( down from 3,245 metres at week 31)
Strava - 105,872 metres

Last week: 2,710 metres

A week of consistency running all 7 days. Longest day was only 15 kms. Most vertical day was 866 metres.
The weather for mid winter has been reasonably kind except for gale force winds on Friday with gusts over 100 kmph both on Mt Wellington and in Hobart city.
We haven't had a cold winter & it took some searching to find some snow today.

This photo was taken on top of Collins Cap, a mountain not far from home & just under 1100 metres in height above sea level. We have to make the most of these opportunities, the snow doesn't last long.
Tapering now for next weekend's RailTrail run in the north of the state. As trains don't normally travel up too many steep hills, this off road 56 km will be very flat. Mostly rolling through farmland, the country scenery will be nice.


  • Steve, Although I am injured, I am doing cross training and fitness walking using a 10 day training cycle. Thanks for this idea. I really enjoy your blogs and Strava pics. All the best in the Rail Train run.

  • I use the 10 day training cycle when I'm really focused on a big event. It eases the pressure to do the big training & allows rest, recovery & cross training. All the best with the injury.
