Adventure Race Training Update

Only 4 short weeks till the GrizzlyMan race! Although I’d love to say my race partner and I have been furiously training everyday together, honing our orienteering skills, and mastering the art of racing as a team… In reality, our time spent training together is a bit on the scary side. We’ve met a total of two times to train together. Our first outing was spent snowshoeing about 3 or 4 miles, while we practiced our orienteering skills. We were far from perfect, but we did manage to learn a lot that we can apply on race day. Our second outing was spent ice skating with Yak-Tracks up a kinda steep solid ice trail. Needless to say, we weren’t setting any speed records. After the hike, we got on our mountainbikes for a short ride, where I promptly learned my bike needs a serious tune up!¬† Winter is being persistant and today it is¬†snowing hard again, setting us back a bit further on our training schedule. There’s only so much you can do on a spinning bike, but I suppose it’s better than sitting on the couch, hoping to get in shape by watching others bike on TV.
