Friday Mar 1 #

6 PM

Running 24:00 [2] 4.5 km (5:20 / km)

Around the streets of Buenos Aires. Direction was generally dictated by the traffic lights as I reached each intersection.

11 AM

Walking 1:00:00 [1] 4.0 km (15:00 / km)

Took Sam up in the cable car and chairlift to the high point of yesterdays run. We walked and clambered around a bit checking out the views from different vantage points. My legs were super tired from yesterday which didn't bode well for the run I had planned in the afternoon.
4 PM

Running 1:00:00 [3] 10.0 km (6:00 / km)

Ran out and back along the trail to Refugio Frey. I told Elise I would be anything between 30 minutes and a few hours. In the end I managed to run out for 30 minutes enjoying nice views over Lago Gutierrez before turning around at the bottom of one steepish section that I didn't feel like tackling. My legs were protesting at even one contour climbs!

10 AM

Walking 1:30:00 [2] 7.0 km (12:51 / km) +1000m 7:30 / km

Walking from Catedral village up to the top of the ski resort and then half a km along a nasty traverse above a massive drop on the other side of the resort. This was a brutal climb. The roads and tracks all seemed to run in the wrong directions and much of the climbing was scree or sandy ground (1 step forward and a quarter back). As usual in this part of the world the views were great. It was a perfect day with little cloud and no wind and was colder in the village (1000m) than it was at the top (2000m).

I was going to make a round trip of this walk (along the top of the range, down through Refugio Frey and home on a track around the mountains), but after the really tiring climb, the horribly exposed traverse just below the peak of the main range put me off. I was worried it would take a few hours to complete the ridge top and then I would still have a 12km run home from Frey. I wanted a stress free walk/run rather than a highly technical scramble so I turned around. I had a few quick photo stops and collected some great pics - I took Samuels point and shoot rather than my SLR though (wish I had taken a camera on my solo adventures in Chalten).

Elise has a cold and I definitely felt knackered on the climb beyond the way I felt in Chalten. Hope I'm not catching it.
12 PM

Running 41:00 [2] 6.0 km (6:50 / km)

Running down the mountain - after zig zagging a bit on the higher slopes I took a fairly direct route on the lower part (different to the way I came up). Going down the sandy bits were fun. I was really slow though.

Sunday Feb 24 #

12 PM

Paddling 1:15:00 [1] 7.0 km (10:43 / km)

First leg of a rafting trip on the Manso river south of Bariloche. This was mainly flat water. Finished this section with a huge lunch on the side of the river
3 PM

Paddling 1:30:00 [1] 8.0 km (11:15 / km)

After our lunch break we got into the rapids. All pretty tame but just the right excitement level for Samuel. I got a solid workout from paddling the still water sections.

This was a really good trip on a very peaceful river - great scenery, great food and the guides were really friendly. The setup was very professional - no concerns about safety which you sometimes wonder about in South America.
