Real Life Begins Weeks 30, 31, 32, 33

Week 30 - Not a great week, but had some good mountain runs out on Mitchell and Black Balsam during the middle of the week.

Totals =

Time - 5.3hrs
Distance - 29.5m
Vert - 4300'

Week 31 - This was an absolute great week of a lot of slow spectacular trail running which was highlighted by GPER.  I ended up with the biggest totals on all levels of my running.

Totals =

Time - 18.8hrs
Distance - 72.9
Vert - 15200'

Week 32 - Beginning the week with an extended rest period back fired on me when life and illness took away my weekend.

Total =

Time - 2.1 hrs
Distance - 14.4
Vert - 1000'

Week 33 - Beginning the week with illness, then work, then a lack of motivation I ended up with another ridiculously lousy week of running.  Hopefully the flame will return this coming week and I can get the miles back up to Pitchell training form.

Totals =

Time - 2.5
Distance - 17
Vert - 1700'

Sorry for the lack of posting, but my life has been a whirlwind since returning from my road trip and everything is beginning to blur.  Hopefully with the return of work and an actual schedule things will get back on track.  I will have to say though that this has actually been my best summer of running to date.  It is still no where in comparison to my fall, winter, and spring month totals but I will have to consider this summer a success.  Hopefully I can build on the base of this summer and have a very productive rest of the year.  I've got 4 week to prepare for Looking Glass Look-Around.  Let the training begin!
