Oh No! Forgot the Alpine Gear!

has been cold and rainy all week in brisbane.
there was even flooding on the sunshine coast!
had a really strange thought heading out for my cootha run on a drizzly thursday morning.
was trotting along wearing my 2 layer rain jacket feeling rather chilly.
had gotten used to carrying my 'alpine pack' whenever running in colorado - containing 2 thermals, beanie and gloves.
and thought i may have actually needed it this morning.
must be getting soft!

need to start thinking about ghouse prep this week.
maps, gear, crew etc...
will also need to do some 'heat acclimitization runs' ie. run in the heat of the day wearing too many clothes.
sounds a little odd but when you're cranking along the powerlines late saturday morning with the sun beating down on your head you appreciate it!

lots of running on tired legs this week - great training.
also quite a few morning runs due to physio or work in the afternoon.
still hypoxicating as well.

monday - 2.5 hr run whites hill reserve
tuesday - 60mins bike 140watts
wednesday - 14km flat 68.30
thursday - 3hr mt coot-tha run, physio and massage!
friday - 30min bike 140W
saturday - nothing
sunday - 14km flat 67.30

2 weeks til glasshouse.
taper time! and not of the reverse variety :)
only 4 more work shifts to avoid the lurgie.
now after saying that someone will probably sneeze on me in the woolies.
i am such a germaphobe!

If everyone was germophobic like us the world would be a much better place.

So are you lining up for the 100k or 100miler at GH???
