1 PM

Running (trail) 2:25:00 [3] 21.0 km (6:54 / km) +800m 5:48 / km
weight:64.7kg shoes: Hoka Stinson 3

Highline from Tom and Heather's, plus David M.
Up, all the way across, down all the way to the gate by the community/road, then turn around and all the way back with a bit of a longer route back to Tom and Heather's that followed a bit of powerline, causeway and doubletrack.
Felt fast and relaxed, ran quick up all the ups and still able to talk all the way, despite not having eaten since breakfast around 9 am.
Beautiful mild temperature and the expected rain didn't happen.

Running (stairs/hills) 38:00 [3] +200m
shoes: Hoka Stinson 3

4 times up the stairs, 2 times up the ramped both, ran down the ramped path each time. Warm. Thighs felt tired, maybe the hamstrings, probably from the incline treadmill workout and/or the Cascade Mountain scramble.

Tuesday Aug 6 #

12 PM

Biking (spin class) 30:00 [3]

Legs were tired from yesterday's scramble, so wasn't able to give full power to this. Instead it probably counted partly as active recovery, plus some workout.

Strength (Core) 10:00 [3]

Core session as part of the spin class

Monday Aug 5 #

11 AM

Hiking (Scramble) 2:30:00 [3] 11.0 km (13:38 / km) +1400m 8:20 / km
shoes: Hoka Stinson 3

Cascade Mountain solo scramble (most friends were tired from previous activities). I've never done this one and it has been on my list for a while. Today seemed like a beautiful day to do it.
Ran the first bit until the trail got steeper, than power hiked the rest of it. A few groups of tourists but not too bad.
Amazing views in all directions: Lake Minnewanka, Banff townsite, Bow River, Mount Rundle, Tunnel Mountain, Mount Norquay, and the Bow valley in both directions.
It was probably hot today down in the valley, so it was a nice day to go up high (about a 3000 metre summit).
2 PM

Running (Scramble) 2:00:00 [2] 11.0 km (10:55 / km)
shoes: Hoka Stinson 3

Surprisingly not much faster on the trip down, probably owing to much of the chunky scree that you have to pick your way over. Kind of didn't want to leave that summit and those views, but there are always things going on in Canmore to return to. Met some folks from France and Chile on the summit.
