As mentioned in the previous post, we're hiking in Yosemite for most of this week. I'll be logging between 10 and 15 miles of walking (some w/pack and some without) rather than running through Thursday, but then it'll be time to do some make-up. I should be able to squeeze a few miles out of Thursday - Saturday, but to try and get the full 31 will be a challenge. The only bit of good news is that this is meant to be a "rest" week and the walking should give my ankle more time to heal-up.
(yes, it's still giving me trouble ...)
Monday - Cross Training actual: 8.6
Hiked 8.6 miles today, from 10,000' down to 7200'. The last three miles were hiking on the equivalent of cobblestones! We were WIPED. Absolutely wiped.
Tuesday - Run 4 miles actual: 0
Nothing today except lounging by the stream, a brief walk to the end of the lake and a nice, long nap. Merced Lake is a beautiful place.
Wednesday - Run 5 miles actual: 7.6
Hiked back up to Vogelsang via the Fletcher Creek trail today. It wasn't nearly as difficult as either of us expected and the views were incredible.
Thursday - Run 4 miles actual: 7
Back to Tuolomne Meadows via Rafferty Creek (same as the way in). Back down from 10,000' to 8,000'. Definitely warm (on, hot!) but it's always easier to walk down the hill than up it. :-)
Friday - Rest actual: 0
Oh, sweet lounging. Lazy, lazy, lounging. And the first good night's sleep since we left for High Camp!
Saturday - Run 7 miles actual: 0
Drove home. Knit. Ate a really good dinner. This is what vacations are all about.
Sunday - Run 11 miles actual: 0
More knitting and more sleeping. Wierd weather made it very difficult to leave the house. Make-up tomorrow ..
Total Scheduled Mileage: 31
Actual Mileage: 23.2 miles of hiking
