Kicking into High Gear! 5/4/22

1 week until Ragnar (3,4,7 mi run 500-1000′ elevation/leg)

1 month until mid June Presidential Traverse (20mi, 8k elevation)

2 months to TMB! (15-20 miles/day, 3-5k/day)

Toe is heeled!

Starting mountain training, Tuesday hill runs and longer weekend bike rides! It’s a big ramp up to the Presidential Traverse. A few new pieces of cool new gear:

  • Zenbivy sleep system for Ragnar – this uses my own air mattress I had gotten last year
  • GOPRO10 for Ragnar and TMB + accessories

Did my first mountain run this year 5/1/22 up little pack Monadnock. Same time to get to top as in 2019 (45 min)! Only 919′ elevation and a total of ~1:15 up and down but what a nice trail -love Wapack way better than the loop down on Marion David. Will have to consider this loop for longer training days!

Have been doing some traveling and doing workouts on the road/trail in DC (Fluence HQ) and in CA all last week! Found a trail in DC adjacent to my hotel – beautiful springtime weather a few weeks ahead of us up here in NH. It has been tiring! But am not at all tired as I was same time last year when I couldn’t even move after work.

Still need to drop 20. Training hard!!
