3 miles from camp over 70 and then back track to 70 to get picked up


William got a hot spot inside the side heel pad on the right foot.  It started bothering him Saturday, but he doctored it.  On Sunday after 3 miles of up and down he called it quits.  The tipping point was the fact that the next extraction point was over 40 miles away.  He didn't think he could do 40 in that condition.  So we adjusted stuff and were prepared to go on (Wilson and I) after William called Terah to come get him.  Then Wilson melted.  I think he was so tired from Glory Ridge week and that if William had kept going, he would have gutted it out.  But William wasn't and Wilson didn't.  So Terah took us to Blowing Ridge.


Determined on Monday that William's shoes were too broken in and providing little support to carry the pack.  I guess Montana last year wore them out.  I think if his feet were tougher like they were last summer when he was training for B2B, it wouldn't have been as big an issue.  But it was.

5 miles from Hot Springs up to pond where we camped

and we're off.  back in a week. (that's the goal, anyway)


nothing this morning.  packed my pack.  

i was sort of worried that i would be going backwards by taking this hike.  However after putting the pack on this morning, i think this will be a good training experience.  The pack is about 32 lbs right now with the eno and without filling the two water bottles.  68+ miles with that on my back in NC and TN mountains may be a really good training week.  That is if my body survives this :)

10 x 150 fartlek as 50 easy/25 hard w/ 20 sec recovery

cd: 350

good swim.  added a 100 more yards of both kick and pull.  more fartlek work than normal and my arms are dead.  I feel like the fartlek work is more beneficial than just the sprints.  had moments of flailing as i got tired, but overall it was good.
