Run and Lift Monday

5K@5:30 pace followed by an upper body weight routine this evening on my meal break...it was nice!

Mont Tremblant

  I was off on a Ski Vacation in Mont Tremblant last week so there was not time to run however I did plan a day of Snowshoeing on the little Mountain so I did this .....click on this link to relive the run.

 The weather was terrible but I was determined to summit.   It was warm but raining heavily.... wore only my Shell over a Thermal Shirt with Tights under my water proof Pants.   Going up took about 1h15m down was about 30m.    Wanted to go further but as I went up in altitude the temps dropped and the winds picked up.   With a half K to go to the summit I decided to turn around and head back logging a 9.3 km "Run" with a 526 meter elevation gain! 

Garmin data ...looking at he cadence and splits you can tell the difference between up and down.

Stride Inside - 6 Hour Track Run

 Nothing quiet like logging you first Ultra of the new year on Jan 6!     Had a great day I was looking for a consistent run and looking at my splits that was more or less what I did.   Ran the first lap in 1min37sec  walked a lap or two every 10K and ran the last lap in 1min26sec...no death march!    Did 500ml of water,  one S Cap and a bug swig of Maple Syrup ....nothing else!    The fueling was fantastic ...HR climbed through the event ,  first 10K 120's ,  2nd 10K 130's then 30K thorugh 50Ks more or less in the 140's not letting it climb into the 150's. 

You can really see my race plan in my HR....

Finished 18 out of 36 folks ,  15th out of 21 men logging just shy of 51km.
