Last week was a good week. Got around eleven hours of training in. Wanted to run more but the weekend snow storm changed the training from running to skinning up the ski area that closed a week before. The snow got progressively better over the three days as my legs struggled to recover from all the uphill along with the shredding they received during a steep two mile downhill run just outside of Las Vegas.
Running – 14.7 miles with 2,431 feet of vertical (2:35)
Skiing – 23.5 miles with 12,234 feet of vertical (8:45)
The snowstorm was a treat but I am looking forward to some nicer weather to run in before heading to Nashville to visit family. I’ll probably try to mix in some skiing while there’s still snow but I need to start focusing more on running since my first race is less than a month away. I do feel like my uphill running is far better than last summer. Whether that’s the uphill skinning or fixing the hernia I’ll take it.
