In the past month, I've found a good partnership with Ryan Lassen in running lots of vertical. Ryan has been a part of the 100 day Kaihogyo since January 9th. In January, he accumulated over 100,000ft vertical gain. I logged about half of that. So, on to February.....with all this in mind, I have new focus for my training runs, which now require climbing just about every day. So far so good......I'm feeling strong and really enjoy getting on top of the local summits most days of the week.
I've also come to enjoy www.Strava.com at the suggestion of Sherpa John. The Strava site is much better than other logs for me, in part, because it's tracking vertical gain. It also allows you to see routes other runners are using. I've found that stronger athletes are using Strava rather than other log sites like DailyMile, etc.. I still keep that account open though.......I stay in touch with people that way.
Run long and prosper!
Here are some of the pics we've taken in the past few weeks.
