My daily additions in my log book left me with 40,098 ft of total gain (over 30,000ft of climbing all above 8000ft altitude) The altimeter's total accumulation is affected by any movement but I tried to leave it stationary as much as possible outside of running and biking.
70 miles of running with 13,000 ft of climbing/ averaged 8:32 pace per mile. And 22 hours total training for the week.
This week was a bike (and vertical) focus. Next week is a running focus with 3 hard runs and 2 medium duration tempo sessions on the bike. One track session and long tempo run (16 miles) will be at sea level so I'm kind of excited for that.
I just found out tonight that the Leadville Silver Rush 50 mile bike starts with a 200 meter run up a super steep slope before you are able to get on your bike... super sweet. I was a bit worried about sorting out places in the opening miles with several hundred other riders, but now hopefully I'll be able to hit the top close to the lead.
