A short and steep week. Did all the vertical on just 58 miles, which means just 29 uphill miles for 16,400' of climbing.
The 4 days of 2,300' were all done on the final 1.5 mile, 1,150' climb on the Shut In race course.
The 3,900' day was a 1,300' climb done 3 times. This type of run works well this time of year with the extreme heat because i can set up an aid station that i can get to every 45 minutes or so. It's been brutally hot here the past 2 months, pushing 90 everyday. I can't wait for Sept/Oct/Nov/Dec.
taking my kids next week for a weeks visit with my parents in upstate new york. should be a great week with the family. no big hills up there, but hilly enough to get some vert in while i am there. might even see if there are any races to jump into next weekend.
