April's Numbers

It is hard to hit higher miles when a week and half of the month is spent tapering for tomorrow's 50 miler in Buena Vista. I was shooting for a little bit more mileage, hopefully I will break the 300 mile mark in May as I ramp up my training the next 4-6 weeks to get ready for Big Horn 100 miler on June 19th. Here is how it all breaks down so far. I did spend more time this month hiking above 12,000 feet which was very nice.

April 1st - April 30th

Miles covered on foot: 239.85

Vertical gain: 32,600 feet

Total hours (includes weights,swimming,biking,ect.): 43:14:00

Now here is the breakdown year to date.

Jan 1st - April 30th

Miles covered on foot: 915.89

Vertical gain: 121,059 feet

Total hours (includes weights,swimming,biking,ect.): 167:13:32

Not quite to 1000 miles for the year but should break that sometime next week I think. You can also check out my on-line log by clicking on the link on the right hand side of the webpage.

Wish me luck tomorrow in the rain and have a great weekend.
