Fourteen mile five finger trail run yesterday. From my place in town along the river to the Moab rim trailhead then up. Took a road ip there I hadn't been on before to the rim over look. Weather moved in, I had extra upper body layers but just running shorts below windy and cold enough to snow for a little while. Sunny by the time I got home.

Full value!

I can't believe no one is checking in, inspiring me...

My bike is in!!!!! Can't wait to pick it up. The weather will be sub-optimal this weekend, but I can't wait.

In the meantime, running on flat land this week trying to keep a grouchy achilles from wrecking my future plans. It will be in the 70's next week, and an evening bike ride should be possible after work.

Don't despair, lots of XC ski stuff continues up here as the last real race of the season approaches. 30k skate event at Whistler is on Saturday and then touring/climbing season revs up. Lots of skiing, roller skiing, ski striding, running, and beer drinking seem to be the best formula.

I hope you can master that achilles. There sometimes is an increased use of the calf muscles for propulsion as the core and upper-leg get neglected in a running stride. Many runners I know have the power in their calves to pop some power or lengthen their strides but eventually they develop achilles issues.

Good luck and find your answer.

Funny thing. When I bought a heart monitor I learned right away that my biking was NOT an aerobic exercise. My heart rate was 140+ instead of 120-125. Turned out that most of my activities were anaerobic with two exemptions, swimming and kayaking. I should have known that because I can swim or paddle forever. Biking, running, hiking in the hills, climbing, and skiing make me tired very quickly.

Who needs oxygen, Andrizzle?

I like to train anaerobically to simulate posting to Supertopo.

Best xc skiing of the year this past few days, perfect wintery snow, perfect grooming, many trails opened for the first time...Todd, have a great race, ski like the wind! Last one for us is this Sunday, Mammoth Marathon 42k, should be perfect conditions. Here's a photo from the Gold Rush few weeks ago, six laps, pretty hard.

I have a 50k tomorrow. I Haven't run or trained since a knee issue reared its head back in early February. Made it worse skiing in Feb.

Not sure if I am going to even show up, but might just go out and hike as much of it as i can. Is a no show worse than a DNF? I've never DNF'd and don't really want to start that trend.

Has anyone else read "Born to Run"? It focuses on running, specifically, the Tarahumara indians of Copper Canyon in Mexico. There's interesting discussion of running styles and how modern running shoes cause injuries by allowing us to land on our heels. It's an easy fun read too.

I "ran" by the bike shop today and made an appointment to get fitted on Tuesday. HOLY COW that bike is light. It will be a flying machine.

Forecast is ugly for the weekend. Will plow through the miles, keep it flat, do laps so I can quit if the achilles starts barking at me again.

I see I am missing the race at Whistler - we are going up to ski right after you leave. Sorry I can't cheer you an, be inspired to jump in, and make you look good in comparison.

Took my splitboard out yesterday and did a couple of laps on a mellow slope for a total of about 3k elevation gain. Found some fresh and the views were nice.

Aplogies to the snowshoer I alarmed taking a corner on the hard and fast trail back to the car.

Nice to see people out and playing. I didn't meet my goal for 2013, as I had to stop running Nov. 17th.

At first I thought I had bursitis in the right knee, all the symptoms; but within a few weeks of no improvement, I believed I had a bit more of a problem. I had to wait until April 1st to find out, as that is when my medicare started. I've been uninsured for the past 3 years.

MRI shows that my meniscus is MIA in my knee, a little chunk here and there floating in the wrong places; apparently I've had bone on bone for awhile, I just never knew it. I never felt it until after running a marathon Nov. 9th.

I had been compensating for problems in lower back and left leg with my right knee. In hindsight I knew my stride wasn't entirely comfortable; but with disc problems in L-4, L-5, nothing is comfortable.

I can't read the rest of the MRI since I'm no doctor and waiting until Monday for the doc to tell me. I'm kind of hoping he will have to do a knee replacement, as that means I will be able to run again. I was starting to bike some with the warmer weather, but have been told to stop for the time being. Hopefully I will be able to do something sometime in the near future, as I am not willing to give it up. It is medicine for the head.

Could be worse, I could have stepped on an IED.

The big guise, will DnF or DnS and accept it as the breaks. Really can't help it sometimes. What they won't do, is run themselves into an injury situation and ruin their season.

What was to be a strenuous 8 mile hike to Cone Peak and Twin Peak, south of Big Sur in the Ventana Wilderness turned into 10 hours for me as I managed to make some wrong turns near the end! But it all ended well as I found my way out ... eventually. Lesson learned....bring my handheld GPS not just my GPS watch... it was beautiful.
