Total time: 12:04
Total Elevation Gain: 17,200ft

I feel pretty strong this week! This is the most vertical gain I've ever had in a training week, so I'm a bit tired and my left foot is giving me some guff, but all in all I feel good. I've had a solid 7 weeks of training which gives me quite a bit of confidence going into Beacon Rock.
I'll leave you with some pictures of the trails I've been training on:
