Week 18 - 12,000' (248,080')

Is this the Hypoxic Marmot that took 2nd at Mt. Evans a few years ago?
120 - 1,400' up/down on Shut-In.
121 - 3,900' - Did 7 miles on a nice rolling road with 1,300' of vert, then immediately hit the mill for a 10 mile climb on 5% at an 8:55 pace staying within my AeT throughout.
122 - 1,000' on roads.
123 - 2,000' up/down on Shut-In.
124 - 1,100' with a 3-2-1 ladder and 5x:30. See this post.
125 - 1,200' with a 9 mile pregression run. See this post.
126 - 1,400' up/down on Shut-In.

A pretty good week where I worked alot on effort and just going by feel. Wednesday's ladder was all done by perceived Evans race effort and the last 3 miles of yesterday's progression was run in the way I'd like to finish the last 20:00 of Evans, very much tettering on that LT line.
Looks like I'll hit the 250,000' of vert this weekend which will put me about 8 weeks ahead of pace. I'm not much with superstition, so I'll go ahead and say it - I would expect to be near the 700,000' mark come the end of the year. However, I have enough superstition in me not to change the title of the blog ;-)


  1. I have not heard that in a while (Hypoxic Marmot). Couple of years I think.

    Loving your consistency.

  2. I remember reading the PPM forum and wondering who this Hypoxic Marmot is.
    The consistancy has done wonders for me this year.
