Lost Lake trails. Good memories of Barebones 2010.

Knee is now in the frustrating, 'just piss off and heal already' stage. I can pretty much run OK, but every now and then with an unusual twist or extension I get a jolting reminder.

Not Training 25:00 [2]

10 mins on treadmill. 15 on an elliptical. Super boring.
Never been on an elliptical before. It didn't feel right, like it was made for someone with shorter legs.

Whistler, as usual, seems to be run by perpetually hungover Australians.

Cycling 1:00:00 [2]

Downhill biking at Silver Star resort. Rented a bike and lift pass for the day.
Started with a green run to get used to the weird downhill bike, but it was pretty boring, so switched to one of the blue runs part way through when they crossed path.
Knocked over all the blue runs after that, did Super Star and Shazam twice - continual berms and jumps fun. Attempted a few black runs at the end of the day. Both went well, but I was a bit princessy on some of the huge jumps and drop offs - was getting pretty tired by then as well and didn't want to risk a wipeout.
Awesome day, warm and sunny without being killer. Out for 6 hours with a break for lunch.

Swimming 20:00 [2]

Secret OTL swim training in the pool at Revelstoke.
Wish I had the patience to swim more often, since I'm naturally 'pretty good' at it - but lordy is it boring and I don't enjoy the whole lane sharing thing.
Knee is feeling pretty good - have full range of motion bringing it forward now, still discomfort on the back kick when running.

Running - Trail 19:40 intensity: (26 @1) + (3:51 @2) + (8:10 @3) + (7:13 @4) 3.55 km (5:33 / km) +141m 4:38 / km

Run on the trails round Silver Star village. Knee feeling excellent, even on the downhills. Tried a few surges and also felt good. Happy.
Ran through something I turned out to be super allergic to. Less happy.

Running - Trail 15:45 [3] 2.3 km (6:52 / km) +153m 5:09 / km
shoes: Saucony Kinvara - Green & Gold

10 mins up, 5 mins down on some trails where we're staying in Golden.
All feel normal on the ups now and can handle gentle downhill gradients.
Bessie is gonna be pissed when she finds out where I've been:

Running - Trail 1:10:00 [1] 6.55 km (10:41 / km) +227m 9:06 / km
shoes: Saucony Kinvara - Green & Gold

Oh yeah. Running. Kinda.
In Jasper on the Pyramid Bench Trails. More walking than running overall, but can handle uphills with no pain. Flats and downhills possible with an awkward style, but am not going to push it - don't want to develop some secondary injury.
Fantastic trails, up around some lakes and surrounded my mountains.
First ever bear encounter. Heard a rustle in the bushes 5m off the trail and saw two cubs bolting up a tree while Mum sat and the bottom and snorted a lot. Didn't hang around.

Not Training 2:00:00 [0]

Hike from Lake Louise to Lake Agnes and back.
Bit of a circus, but worth it. Very quick dip in Agnes.
Knee feeling very good, almost got full range of motion (in the back/forward direction at least)

Not Training 30:00 [0]

Disappointed due to a lack of bike trainers in the hotel gym, so had to be content to go for a brisk wander round Canmore. I guess it's pretty nice here.
Jogged a few times to get across the street, no pain, but the knee felt funky. Slowly but surely.
