The hard work is all done, now its time to taper and prepare the logistics for the Abu Dhabi adventure challenge.This weekend we hit it hard and heavy starting on Thanksgiving for me. I wanted to get 4 days in a row of intense work outs, mission accomplished.
Thursday/Thanksgiving- was a 2 hour fast paced run and a 1 hour hike up to Rattlesnake
Friday- Hoops marathon
Saturday- 7:45 trail run around Garfield
Sunday- 6:11 (moving time) paddle around bainbridge Island...28.6 miles.
We are working on finalizing our gaitor set up for the desert trek (110k)...there will be lots of sand. I saw this post on Sari Anderson's blog about her gaitor set up...We are leaning towards using the lycra booties that road cyclists use to keep their feet semi warm. I tested a pair the other day on a run down at Alki and they seemed to do the job.
These pictures are actually from two weekend ago's training where we paddled around Maruy Island, portaged, and ran Dockton State Park trails where they hold the Vashon X-Terra each year. Great trails.
