Uh oh....bad ending to a great ride...pulled into my driveway and cleat wouldn't come out. Sometimes I think I get mud on the cleat and it gets "stuccoed" in.

Some people have double chins, I know have a double left knee

Fat Paul - I bet that hike was gorgeous. I miss NE in the fall. I ran in CT back in September while visiting. The smell of the wild grapes ripening in the sun was fabulous - another element of home that I miss.

Ran 8 miles yesterday. Twinges today. I am nursing hard/easy days for another few days. You can't rest your way to glory for the longer races, and I signed up for a couple in late October and early November. If I get past this weekend's long run, tapering can begin. Want to be both fit and healthy for the Gorge Half Marathon and the Dirty Girls 10 mile runs coming up. Co-worker is putting together a team for a December Half Marathon in a part of Portland that should be more scenic. That should complete the bridge between rock climbing and skiing seasons.

Seamstress, had a wonderful jaunt through the Housatonic Valley on the AT. The ridges were washed in color and the weather perfect! It's incredible how that trail keeps giving around every bend.

Does anyone want to meet up on Thursday 10/31 to run the start of the Moab trail marathon course? I expect to roll into Moab around 12:30 and plan to run some of the start and/or finish. Also bringing my rack to climb during my stay. Interested in doing the Kors-Ingalls on Castletown Tower and a couple days at Wall Street. Open for anything within my limits. Will be departing Moab the afternoon of 11/8.

Last Saturday I worked out in the gym for four hours. Lifted 80,000 pounds of weights. All barbells, no machines except for the calf raise and seated calf raise machines.

My arms did not play golf well on the following Monday.

But my tennis was fine on Tuesday.

Lifting barbells is a lot of fun. It is surprising how a wimp like me can work up to a fair amount of weight.

On October 19th I logged in 18 miles, my longest run since having back surgery in 2007.

I'm at 1,377 miles for 2013. On course to run first ˝ marathon Nov. 9th (goal is sub 8:00/mile pace) since 1986.

Been staying jointedly fit in the gym so far this fall so I can get my aerobic on nicely this winter.

But,...

I got in a solid 3 hour day on the trail-moto on Sunday. 2 of those hours I was heart-zoning hard with a mild body pump whilst covering hella techy singletrack. It has been years since I have been as worked as I was yesterday all from a damn moto.

Good to see/read about folks out gettin' there complimentary activities on and staying fit!! Very important as we approach our geezer years for our body as well as mental stimulation for our deft execution of our endeavors.

When does geezerhood start?

I wish I could run on something but asphalt. Weird how that works. I can run up any paved hill but walk up my slightly inclined gravel driveway.

When was the first time you heard your parents' words come out your mouth?
Has nothing to do with physical prowess. State of mind.

You folks seem like fitness nazis: what do you think an idea vo2 max is for climbing? Or is that irrelevant?

Max VO˛ doesn't play into such "work" as climbing unless you are running up the rock. It is more relevant to exercise like running, cycling, walking, XCC skiing or some steady state exercise.

Jaybro, 60ml/kg/min represents numbers related to the max VO˛ of a highly conditioned athlete performing aerobic exercise in his or her prime years.

Like long moderate ( say Steck Salathe etc) solos or mtneering.

I assumed "idea" meant ideal. My bad.

I'm sure Ueli's ratio is higher than that.

Courtyard Wash in Moab. Long, but not technical with a lovely closing ride through Arches. I am frustrated about how slow I am on a mountain bike. It's amazing I can climb anything with my speed dropping so low.
Oh well....keep cranking.

Just turned 70 and trying to beat the "scientifically-established" 10%/decade VO2 max decline. My usual workout is to walk across the street and hike up Apex Pk. at at least 2k ft/ hr. It's 1300' up. BTW that's 1.3 miles at 15% in 30 min on the treadmill. Treadmill good too because there's no knee jamming downhill to suffer. So I mix 'em up. Also Lookout Mt on bike mixed in. Same 1300'. Smooth pavement, few cars (weekdays, see I'm retired) . Going to soon start adding skinning up first run at Loveland...

New bike is showing up Monday just in time for the time change and the end of commuting for a few months.

Riding to work in the dark is relaxing, completive.

Coming home in the dark,

darn near suicidal!

Did OK for 12 of the 13.1 miles in the Gorge 1/2 Marathon last weekend. Negative splits - nice!!! The rain held off until afternoon, and we were treated to fabulous views of Cascade choss. The last three miles were steeply downhill, and I flew through 2 of them. Then.....creak. Struggled with some soreness this entire week. That's the difference between being ready to race and ready to run.

Next weekend in the Down and Dirty 10.5 miles trail run. Location is the new vineyard. Hope to get more mileage in this weekend and the beginning of the week. How ever did I manage to race every weekend for years???

Jaybro, 60ml/kg/min represents numbers related to the max VO˛ of a highly conditioned athlete performing aerobic exercise in his or her prime years.

60 is pretty good but the top athletes in endurance sports have 80-90ml/kg/min so I don't think I agree with what you say.

My guess is that 60 is quite common among good climbers that climb long routes fast and that people like Uli has a much higher VO2 max.
