Week 38 - Time to Start Tapering

Last week:  82.65 kms

Altitude:  Garmin - 118,669 metres in 38 weeks at ave  3,123 metres ( down from 3,140 metres at week 37)
Strava:  121,149 metres

Last week:  2,492 metres

Time to start taper for next weekend's off road marathon in southern Tasmania. Providing this event goes well, I will enter the Sri Chinmoy ultra in Canberra the following weekend.
"Goes well" doesn't necessarily mean a fast time or a good placing, but getting through without falling over, no injuries & not totally wiped out. There won't be any time for a full recovery, so I'm hoping just rest & a couple of short easy jogs will be enough between events.
A 6 day run week just gone, nothing far or high & no Parkrun, on duty.
The weather has been just Ok, wind blows as usual every day and occasionally saw some sunshine.
Fully expecting winter conditions down south next weekend as the event part covers the most southerly road in Australia, the most southerly walking track. I'm sure on a good day you could see an iceberg. Guaranteed to be a rough windy day.


  • Enjoy and good luck with the Cockle Ck. marathon Steve. Carol B. and I walked the South Coast Track 2 years ago - fantastic part of Tassie, but very muddy.

  • Looking forward to the iceberg and penguin count report Steve. Might see you (spectating for me) at the Sri Chinmoy.
