Happy New Year! My first post of the year, time to catch up on training logs…
But first, let’s check out the weather at Bellingshausen Station in Antarctica (not bad, it’s above zero):
Monday: 1hr 10 min hike to Quarry Rock, Bouldering at the Hive gym
Tuesday: rest day
Wednesday: 5km New’s Year Day run!
Thursday: rest day
Friday: Run assessment (10 min warm up, 20 min run to exhaustion, 10 min cool down)
Saturday: rest day
Sunday: 19km run on frosty surfaces!
Tuesday: 1hr 5 min run
Wednesday: rest day
Thursday: strength train – strained left quad 😦
Friday: rest day
Saturday: 1 hr 55 min trail run with Mountain madness
Sunday: 2hr road run
Things that went well:
- Back up to marathon training – ran 5 hours in week 37.
- Total elevation gain/loss on runs this week: Gain: 1,164meters Loss: 1,096 meters (benchmark – Antarctica marathon Gain: 616 meters, Loss: 619)
Lessons Learned for Next Time:
- Wool socks keep your feet toasty while wearing wet trail running shoes.
- Also, consider purchasing a second pair of trail running shoes to wear when my first pair are still wet.
