Training Journal 4/22-4/28

Monday, April 22- Sunday, April 28, 2013: Perhaps most noteworthy was getting 22,075 feet of vert in just 53 miles of running.  That was mostly due to the Chirico Repeats.  I joined a small & crazy group of Seattle Mountain Runners who were doing 10 repeats of a 3.5-ish mile trail with 1700 vert per rep.  Amazingly, 6 of us completed the "fun" run, with a bunch of other folks joining for a few and keeping us company.  I gotta say, this was the most competitive non-race: we had so much fun trying to beat each other.  Kept us moving quickly. It was a big milestone for me this year since I have been struggling with low energy.  I felt great for the repeats and ran them very consistently each under 1 hour (mostly). Other than that BIG DAY I also biked a bunch, logging almost 100 miles and having a blast the entire time.  I think I am in love with my bike.
