Calorie counting has been a reliable "go to" plan every time I've used it. I may modify the World Series to keep counting in some way in both plans. But for now, I'm just back to counting until the 14th.
|Unlike the rain, snow, and ice I've faced, yesterday was just SUNSHINE!|
As for Big Climb training, it's on schedule. Yesterday I climbed the back stairs above a local school - over 800 stairs - and for a change it was gorgeous!!! So if you're keeping score, I've trained in snow and ice, rain, and now warm sunshine. The view from atop the stairs is magnificent on a day like today. And I was joined by my wife and a colleague who is joining our climbing team, so it was a great day of team training for the Four Seam Fastballs!
And I've added a training race. Drum roll please...
I'll be participating in the Cove2Clover 5K race in March. Cove2Clover takes participants up Snake Hill south of Seattle, for a vertical ascent of 800 feet over the first mile of the race, similar to the 788 feet of elevation in the Big Climb. Cove2Clover is on March 11, two weeks before the Big Climb, so it seems like a great fit for my training schedule. And it benefits several local charities and the local school foundation. I'll mix walking and jogging, but mostly I'm looking forward to climbing Snake Hill!
