I’ve been in Colorado most of the past month, and training for Elbrus Race has been my primary goal. I’ve had to adjust slowly to the training effect from being above 9,000′ for all of my training. That’s good for me. I hope.
I’ve been doing strength training at the Breckenridge Recreation Center.
I’ve been trail running, as in this clip from Keystone Gulch Road.
Especially on steep trails, like Mount Royal overlooking Frisco, Colorado.
And I’ve been to the top of Quandary, a Colorado 14’er, a couple of times.
I’m having a blast, and watching my fitness improve almost daily. I’m hoping to do great at the Elbrus Race 2013.
