Thursday Jul 4 #


Rest for a couple of days on the cards.

Calf is still dodgy, doesn't feel like it has full strength. And the heel/plantar bit that's been on and off tender for the past month started aching a bit without stimulus last night.

I set the alarm for 6am to go up Sucha Bela gorge before I left, but decided 10km and 500m climb wasn't smart.

Wednesday Jul 3 #


Unsure whether to go out today. Option is a very light 11km with 544m climb. Calf not quite right.

Tuesday Jul 2 #

Maybe skip to 2:35 and put it on mute...


I'd also watch this for 31s, from High Tatras --
12 PM

trail run 2:00:00 [2] 18.0 km (6:40 / km) +945m 5:17 / km


Another hike/jog, took about four hours with a bit of faffing.

Forgot to stop the watch at the end, perhaps because I'd given up running.

The Symbolic Cemetery by the ruined Carthusian monastery was very cool.

Left calf got very tight, esp after all the ladders. No puns please! Running downhill was ok. Stretched and rolled it afterwards.

Sokolia Dolina was pretty amazing, as is the fact loads of humans climb these ladders like it's no big deal.

All in the woods, a big change from the Tatras. The gorges in the middle feel very otherworldly.

Monday Jul 1 #

8 PM

trail run 30:00 [1] 3.75 km (8:00 / km) +77m 7:15 / km

evening jog, sort of, after arriving in Turisticky Raj (accommodation). I like the owners. Otoh, it has Finnish insects.

Sunday Jun 30 #

11 AM

trail run 1:06:37 [0] 4.28 km (15:33 / km) +660m 8:47 / km

Not running (mostly), but hiking with a pas soutenu, whatever that is.

All I could do to resist wiping the magical factor 50 suncream off. Hot and sweaty and lovely.

trail run 45:00 [0] 3.16 km (14:15 / km) +317m 9:29 / km

First time up Kasprowy Wierch in 11 years and a crucial three months --

Nice ridge on this route. Stunning.

trail run 45:29 [0] 3.86 km (11:46 / km) +119m 10:12 / km

Highlight was a cooooold water source! Felt a lot better after freezing the hands in it and drinking my fill.

trail run 13:02 [0] 1.47 km (8:54 / km)

trail run 1:00:00 [0] 6.3 km (9:31 / km) +264m 7:52 / km

Muranowiec back to Kalatowka via blue trail. Forgot to start the watch or, remembered to but pressed button same time satellites were being found, didn't seem to have started.

Total route: 19.8km; 1423m.,19....

Swimming was forbidden in the lake, unfortunately. Possibly stayed a bit too long there in the sun, feet in the water. Short spin to Muranowiec, where I had hot żurek (rye, egg, sausage... soup). Felt like I had a mild dose of overheating... took it easy on the way back. Jogged bits, looked after the articulations, tired enough I couldn't resist an ice-cream at Kużnice, walked back up from there.
