Re: I've started training for next season....

ran my first 10 mile trail race today. went very well. miles 7-10 felt great. I've learned that if I just keep my HR at 85-90% of max, the distance is no problem. when I get my HR above that, I can only hold it for short distances and then need recovery . I have 2 half marathon trail races coming up...

Re: I've started training for next season....

I agree with the speed work once a week or so. around where I live there are basically no hills, so speed intervals are important. they don't exactly replicate the muscles used on hills, but its close in terms of cardio exertion. I'm still trying to figure out a weekly training plan since I am racin...

Re: I've started training for next season....

5k yesterday was tough because I exploded my heart rate. I followed up by running 6.5 miles today which felt great. today I managed my HR to a "long distance" range. yesterday I just let HR go through the roof because the distance was so short. I realize now that I have the endurance for the 10 mile...

Re: Pictures, pictures and pictures!

trail race today with my little bro. he took 3rd, I took 7th. he managed to run the correct course. I missed a turn and had to back track. cost me about 4-5mins. oops. I blame the lack of altitude for making me confused.

Re: Scarpa T1 mounting mark on boot sole

my only experience on the subject is ancient history and was for mounting XC racing skis. we'd use a straight edge to find the balance point of the ski, and that is where the front most screw would go for the binding....I think I'm remembering that sort of correctly. btw, we would also find the kick...

Re: I've started training for next season....

I have my first trail 5k this weekend. its so short my biggest concern is getting my diesel engine up to speed before its over. next weekend is a trail 10 miler which should suit me better.

Re: I've started training for next season....

I wish I could train like that. my problem is that I was dormant for 10 years. last winter proved I needed a radical change. so basically I've spent the last 6 months trying to become 35yo again.

Re: I've started training for next season....

yeah, I need to increase leg strength. tele skiing is basically a series of 1 leg squats. I will be introducing some plyometric work, jumps and lunges. my plan is to work up to a few minutes of continued jumps and lunges to simulate a ski run....the draw to compete in trailing running is strong howe...

Re: I've started training for next season....

well its not the rockies or the Tetons, but I have entered 4 trail running races over the next 6 weeks. they are short: 5-10k each, but should be fun.
