Saturday Aug 3 #

10 AM

Run 1:11:00 [2] 12.0 km (5:55 / km) +25m 5:51 / km
shoes: Brooks Ghost

Nice run with Milo on the greenbelt. The water is low enough to make it around the full loop (though muddy in spots with his grass and bushes). Went south to the airport which was also open except for a couple puddles I needed to carefully edge around. Warm in the sun but nice along the water and in the shade. Steady comfortable pace.

Bike 1:00:00 [3] 8.5 km (8.5 kph) +400m

Checked out with new Sunnyside trail. Mixed feelings - initial part of the climb if a bit weird (like they were going to use it for the descent and changed their mind so in some spots it has unnecessary rollers and is very wide). The latter part of the climb is great though. I need to go back and ride the descent again without the dog. I was going slow and stopping which made it feel a little boring (as in you need to be going really fast to make the trail fun). Added an out and back to the Cartier lookout. The trail junctions and the start/finish area could be done better too to make it less confusing.

Hike 6:00:00 [2] 22.0 km (16:22 / km) +2100m 11:05 / km

Interestingly AP thought this was a backcountry ski when I uploaded the GPS:)

Begbie summit hike/climb with Brendan. Somehow it has been ten years since the last summit visit. Very humid today and soaked my shirt on the climb despite the reasonable pace (had to wring it out twice). Glacial recession is making the climb over to the ledge a bit of an unknown. A fair bit of snow melt even in the last week made access tricky. Had to get my head in the game as it involved a big step over the bergschrund onto a rock ledge then some gritty climbing with one awkward move. The actual ledge didn't seem as bad in comparison despite the exposure. I wonder if early or late are the better options (more snow or enough melt that the upper access works better)? After the ledge the remaining scramble is fun but longer than I remembered. Weather held and enjoyed a nice rest on the top. 4 hours or so from the car with some time spent sorting out the ledge access. FKT of 2:10 seems ridiculous. Was also surprised at the number of dogs that have been to the summit. I don't see how they make it across the ledge...

Route down went smoothly. We rappelled off the ledge avoiding the exposed sections. Long way down but legs didn't feel too bad. Not too sore Friday either.

5 PM

Run 1:20:00 [2] 8.5 km (9:25 / km) +300m 8:00 / km
shoes: Brooks Cascadia Black

Finished the loop to try and find the missing control but no luck. Did find some trails I didn't know existed on the north side of Dolan Creek though. Pretty warm out so kept the pace easy. Distance is an estimate as my Garmin has been having issues picking up satellites lately.

9 AM

Bike 3:00:00 intensity: (45:00 @1) + (45:00 @2) + (45:00 @3) + (45:00 @4) 20.0 km (6.7 kph) +1150m

Joss Mountain ride with Brendan and Jordan. Thought it looked like it might be high cloud so left my camera behind but turned out quite sunny and nice. Grass is pretty thick on the lower sections and muddy through the pass. Felt like we rode more than usual though pace was slower than my KOM (which on review was the year of TA which meant I was much better biking shape). Fun adventure ride.

5 AM

Run 45:00 [2] 4.5 km (10:00 / km) +250m 7:50 / km
shoes: Brooks Cascadia Black

Flying out this morning but convinced a few people to do a sunrise run before breakfast. Left at dawn and had the sun come up while we were climbing to Midship. A km of so of flat running then a km of speed hiking. Nice quick excursion with high bang for the buck. Nice light as the sun came up.

Sunday Jul 28 #

8 AM

Hike 3:30:00 [1] 12.0 km (17:30 / km) +630m 13:52 / km

Better weather today with a clear morning though it did get cloudier as the day went on. We did a loop hike past Tetras Lake, Rasta Pass, over Goat Ridge to Secret Valley and back to the lodge. Felt pretty tired at the end - more than I should have been - not sure why. Once again had some trail for the first and last km but otherwise wandering without trail through meadows and scree.
