Training Journal 6/3-6/9

Monday, June 3-Sunday, June 9, 2013: Big deal this week was biking from Bellingham to Winthrop and in the process going over the mountain pass and logging 152 miles with 8,300 ft. I've been scheming to do this route for a while and the weather & my training finally lined up.  Two days later James and I climbed Gardner Mountain, one of the toughest training days this year.  Good scrambling and lots of elevation gain 5,000ft climbing in just 2 miles.  Good week for toughening up mentally/physically.  Mileage this week suffered a bit due to my long bike ride and helping race direct at the Winthrop Marathon. When I added up the numbers, I realized I did 28.5 hours total biking, running, and slack lining.  Damn that's pretty solid.
