Thanks, Todd.

But nothing compared to others here, including you, and Susan (18k vertical!).

But the run down was fun, about a 1/2" of melted snow over a firm base, so it was easy to turn, and fast.

Here's some inspiration for this thread from the New York Times about Kilian Jornet: ski mountaineer, climber, and aerobic monster:

Did four 6-km runs in the last five days. That's about four miles each run. Nothing hurts ... well, not too much anyway. Best time was 30:59, not that I'm really hurrying.

So this is interesting. For my weight of 160 lb. - which won't seem to drop no matter how far I run and how little I eat and drink - and 30 minutes of activity:

An 8mph run for half an hour is four miles = 455 Calories burned

Now what if I walk the same four-mile course at half the speed?

A 4mph walk for an hour is the same four miles = 405 Calories burned

So clearly, for burning calories, it ain't really much about whether you're walking or running, it's far more about the distance that you do. That is quite surprising to me - I'd have thought a half-hour run would burn WAY more calories than a one-hour walk, but apparently knott.

Rebuilt the drivetrain on the 80's vintage commuter Schwinn yesterday.

New Freewheel, Cassette, Chain, and rear bearings.

Now I'm not worried about breaking something if I stand on the pedals.

Went to an 11 tooth top gear too. That should be good for about 30mph @ 90 rpm on the flat.

30 mile road bike, easy course, Monterey Bike Path. Getting ready for a race later this month. At my age racing means getting to the cut off points before they shut down. The upside of competing at my age is that my age bracket has fewer and fewer and fewer folks in it!

I haven't been doing so great since the Half. I ran 33 miles that week and have been flat since.

I think I will pull a Positive Split Saturday at the Scotland Run 10K. Either that or a PR. Depends if I can hold my Tempo Pace the entire distance.

lifted 36,000 pounds of barbell weights yesterday. It took me just over three hours, a little longer than I had hoped for. Oh well, at least I finished. Went for a jog this morning. Surprisingly not very sore. I am not very strong.

Lost eighteen pounds of fat in last couple of months, from 182 to 164. Lots of hungry nights. Less weight to carry up a crack I figure, to make up for my weakness, I hope.

I need to climb Reed's Direct's second pitch in good style for once. That first move is very stretchy. Never been on a route that makes me unexpectedly pop off as much as this pitch. Kinda frustrating.

I read a quote something like, "What are you willing to give up to accomplish what you want?" Been keeping that in mind. I have been giving up a lot of food.

Just finished the culminating week of a great winter of aerobic nordic racing...I raced in the Supertour Finals and National Distance Championships 50k Classic. Five races in 8 days. 3.3k prologue skate, 15k Classic, 1.2k sprint, super burly hill climb up Sugar Bowl in howling East winds, and a 50k classic in grim conditions. This is the highest level of racing I have tried since racing the Nationals 1985-87, racing the top skiers in the US, including the US Ski Team, and top collegiate athletes. If I had known that the next oldest person would be Kris Freeman, 32, winner of two of the races...I probably would have skipped these. But they are open to anyone, and were right here on my home turf...So I went for it! Really great experience, and I didn't finish last until the 50k classic in mud and slush. I turned 50 this year and had high motivation to up my athletic game...sent the Star Walls Crack (13a) last autumn, had a really fun year ski racing, met a lot of very skilled master racers, and gathered a lot of good information on how to train. Psyched to train smart and hard this summer, and see how fast I can get!

Peter, that 50K sounds like an ultimate in intense aerobic activity.

Good for you too Susan on your bike ride. I have driven to Monterey many times and can appreciate the distance.

A local swim team boy last Tuesday was instructed to swim across the pool underwater. When he reached the other side he decided to do a flip-turn. Then he passed out under water. He stopped breathing. The lifeguards and an off-duty nurse performed CPR. After several minutes he began breathing again and became conscious. He says he will swim again. Just a juxtaposition to the idea of aerobic exercise.

Wow Peter, incredible!

As one of the competitors said of Bob Beamon when he broke the long jump record by two feet in the 1968 Olympics:

"Compared to this...we are all as children."
