After a productive summer of training and adventures my training season is winding down. I just finished an altitude camp in Park City, Utah with APU and USST, which was our last major training block before the season. I OD’d on some vit. D with the expectations of my return to the dark, frigid north. There was snow on the ground in town when I arrived in Anchorage Monday night.
From here on out my training is mainly race preparation with the exception of trying to find a moose on one of my final recovery weeks before the racing season begins.
June through August I had consistent training including two great glacier camps. I was lucky to stay healthy all summer with the exception of not being able to run until September. Missing out on a summer of running OD’s and adventures was definitely disappointing considering all the ideas I had for mountains to run or terrain to scout for animals, but September through now has made up for it.
Later this week I am headed up to Fairbanks to see family and to hunt moose with Lex Treinen and my brother. We will be pursuing an antlerless moose in a region northwest of Fairbanks. I’m excited to get up into the interior and see what we might find. Wish us luck!
