Sunday Jul 21 #

steady run 40:00 [3]

From Passo Pordoi to Cenezai after seeing S through the carpark. Lovely descent(800m drop) mostly on fairly gentle ski runs. Right knee bad for about 5 mins then eased off and enjoyed it. A marmot ran across in front of me then stopped -I got within about 5m of it before it dived down its hole, looked a bit scabby - I think it was moulting.
Then spent a bit of time at race finish waiting for S.
Men’s race won by an Italian 21 year old- he appeared to be cruising down the final valley and women’s race won by Judith Wyder, taking about 7 mins off the old record...

steady run 20:00 [3]

Easy jog with S at Canazei by the river. Legs felt terrible to start with but eased off a bit. Decided against another run later in the day.

Walk up from col (pas de Guai) - mostly fine but a bit steep via ferrata slowed me somewhat.
Decent track down from second Refugio. Out for about 3 hours


Wander from vilage down to closed road ( assume it is because river has destroyed road along gorge) and back up - about 45 mins walking, hot.

Walk with E through valley from near Misurina, fantastic flood channel - path followed debris stream for much of climb. Then lovely open meadows at top -some horses in meadows. Top of climb was in superb glacial valley with huge crags and alluvial fans below gullies in the crags. Nice picturesque ruin at pass then a bit of a shock - path disappeared down a horrendous gully. Managed to slide/shuffle down this, nae very nice! Then a decent track down to a river valley and road. Out for about 3 hours.

steady run 1:30:00 [3]

Went up Monte Piano and Monte Piana from campsite. WW1 trenches on top (Italian and Austrian positions). Feeling pretty dreadful on climb and right knee not at all good on descent.
Out for about 3-30.
Running a wee bit of climb and most of descent.
