July has been a monstrous month of vertical and distance. And there is good reason I am anxious for this tapering to hit full swing next week. Both because I am exhausted, and because I have chores to catch up on.
Single-track Trails within City Limits: 20 runs (trails of any sort have obviously been my focus)
Mountain Trails: 7 runs (vertical, vertical, vertical)
City Paved Pathways: 2 runs (speedwork hasn’t been a thing this month)
393 km (I have a few hours left in July, should I make it an even 400?)
Update: I couldn’t help myself so with a couple hours left in July I bumped it up to 402km.
11,000+m Vertical (this may sound like a lot for a month, but they do this in one race for the Hardrock 100)
Longest Run: 50km (I didn’t do any extra chores that day. Utterly exhausted)
Shortest Run: 3.8km (short ones can be a lot of fun too)
That should mostly wrap up the big running months for the year.
