IImpressive and a good motivation for me, I am 70 , 15 months after a triple by-pass. Walking about 4-5 times a week here in hot, flat Florida. I track my time but realize I should also track my mileage. Time for me to crank it up some.
I have been suffering from really bad insomnia since the surgery, sleeping pills don't help.

Also plan to start swimming laps in lap pool.
I really enjoy this thread.

Consistency is the key, not overdue it but stay with it. You can increase frequency and distance as time goes on, but don't burn out trying to hard.

I hit 300 miles last week, March was good to me. I will be missing more days now as we are getting ready to begin our spring migration back north and I have lots of little projects to complete, before leaving.

Great pix as always MTWarden.
Good to see you guys still at it. A lot of issues this winter/spring has kept me from hiking/snowshoeing but I'm hitting the bike and treadmill 4x a week.

^ sounds like your still moving a good bit- keep it up! smile

did a two day/one night trip into the Bob the weekend before- not a sign of a human anywhere (but sign of a couple of grizzlies out and about!)- back to back 17 mile days w/ at least half on snowshoes and plenty of climbing- good test run for the Bob Marshall Open at the end of this month laugh

I was able to participate in my seventh Bob Marshall Wilderness Open this past weekend; 80-ish miles with 16,000' of gain in 57 hours- the numbers don't tell the whole story though- lots of high water to deal with (got swept once on the North Fork of the Blackfoot!), lots of snow to contend with and lots of blowdown to negotiate, but some damn nice country and that's what keeps me going back smile

Congrats, that is an accomplishment. It is a true test of a "mountain guy".

How does the Bob work that? Is it a “race” of sorts with a given route, or pick your own method and hope to finish?

Looks tough but fun.

Thanks!

Yes very similar to the Alaska Classic in format, but unlike the Classic- not an "official" race- no entry fees, no registration, no t-shirts, etc. Each year prior to the event the organizer announces the start and finish points, how you get there is totally up to you. Each year the start/finish are changed.

It's interesting to see how many various routes are chosen; I often go in thinking everyone will take this route, but only to find out almost everyone is going a different way. Rafters obviously will often go out of their way a bit to optimize floating potential.

This year was interesting in that about two weeks prior to the start we got smoked by a large winter storm, a lot of the higher country in the Bob saw up to 2' of additional snow. The organizer changed the starting location as he was afraid folks wouldn't even make it to the trailhead.

It's definitely the pinnacle point of my training.

Danke smile I'll admit I was pretty beat up, but fortunately about 3 days (with some easy hiking and lots and lots of eating) I started easing out of it and now feel pretty good.

Thanks!

We've had a stretch of record heat of late, so Tiny Elvis and I have been getting up at 4:30 and hitting the trails while there is some semblance of cool. Much too hot for June, hoping this is short lived.

That's some serious training.
Seriously nice country too.

Is that light green tarp a sheet of Cuben fiber by any chance?
