8,000 feet of climbing

I’ve been reading so many blogs and websites about ultra running. One aspect of training that I need to make sure happens is increasing vertical every week. I read a blog that discussed doing 8,000 feet of climbing each week to prepare for Leadville so I’m adding it to my weekly goal. Hiking will help.

It was nice to finally get back on the hiking trails this week. The ice from last week made trails treacherous even with spikes.
