I Can't Feel My Pace
The Year of the Monkey
Strings - Do you know (roughly) how the elevation of said course (subject line) compares to Monkey? I did a variation of the "Shirt for a Hard Ten" run twice today (which is similar to corkscrew) to prepare for the Monkey. I know, I know - I received the Monkey Mail and am a fool for trying to train for said event. In any case - do you know the elevation stats of IHC&R course? I know you have the GPS and the RA map function keeps telling me "elevation service is temporarily unavailable".
I'm running somewhere tomorrow. It's going to be beautiful. I can't wait.
I run IH often when in town. I am happy to try and answer...
The hill climbs 225 feet over the course of about 1.5 miles:
Monkey's 5 biggest hills (at miles 1, 5, 10, 15 and 19) each climb about 250-300 feet over between 1/2 and 2/3 miles. So while the Iroquois Hill is respectable and the 5 mile race on it brutal, the Monkey hills climb higher over a shorter distance.
Great Googly Moogly
