August is all but over, about 3hrs to go, and I am pretty happy the one it has gone from a training point of view.
45hrs and 18000m vert for the month, most of which was from running, rather than skiing. I would have been convinced that August was going to be a big ski month for me at the start of winter, but for all kinds of reasons I have found my self lacing up running shoes, than than put skins on skis.
Have managed a few super fun ski tours out to the Ryton and over the back of Cheeseman, but mostly it has been running. This, especially after this was weekends race, has put me in a great position to slowly keep tapping away at training and increasing the miles over September, before hopefully having a pretty big October and the easing back as the Kepler approaches. I would not say I have the “base” yet that I want, but am pretty close.
Don’t forget tomorrow morning to give those close to you a pitch and a punch………
