More vertical to the final touches
The focus for November is to continue getting stronger by climbing more and also adding more speed work to help with cruising pace. I started the month coming off a solid week of 87 miles (longest to date for this race) so the first week was treated more as a rest week. I had a few active recovery days scheduled into the week which was basically power-hiking at 12% on the treadmill. I was able to get close to 2000’ of vertical in each session and also allow my legs to bounce back from the prior week’s volume.
