In , after I had run my first miler at Leadville, a friend asked me if I ever wanted to do Hardrock. No, I like to run. Not only is there a compelling aesthetic about taking the most direct line to a summit, but the cardiovascular and muscular effort can be vicious whilst imparting virtually zero pounding on the legs. Hence my current training plan. Congrats on getting back at it Tony!
I hope the rest of your summer is filled with tagging beautiful summits. Good to see that you are back at it.

With your kind of past mileage you could certainly be at risk with either. And it is certainly good to be aware of these things too i. Back on track, the mountain trail train is off again. All went reasonably well other than chronic knee pain whilst descending after about the 8 mile point. Many thanks. Some very wise people convinced me to incorporate walking into my run training as I prepared myslef for my first ultra. So when I could run and was forced to walk I did not feel as if I failed. It was only when I could no longer walk… Good luck as you return to full fitness.

Hooray, Tony! Been waiting for this post. Welcome back, Tony.
Going to be an exciting year, next year, for ultra fans. Very happy for you! And its good to see you writing again. Your blog has been very inspirational to me in reaching the goal of finishing my first ultra this year. Glad to see someone of such caliber continuing to enjoy a passion for the outdoors and not crying about what they may or may not have lost or gained.
Yeah man, our local AC legend Tommy Neilsen really helped me appreciate the benefits of a strong hike in training this year.
No new music bro? Welcome back!! I wanted to say thank you for giving me the hope and the inspiration to get through the recovery time. Glad to hear you are back out running and hiking the mountains! I have to say your writing is so purely authentic and genuine. I appreciate that you have such a connection to your true self and connection to the natural world.
The Tyrol Mountain Summer Experience.
It is something to be able to paint a paint a particular picture, or carve a statue, and so to make a few objects beautiful; but it is far more glorious to carve and paint the very atmosphere and medium through which we look, which morally we can do. To affect the queality of the day, that is the highest of arts. Every man is tasked to make his life, even in its details, worthy of the contemplation of his most elevated and critical hour. As a runner, we sometimes forget how absolutley exhilirating it really is, just to move without pain.
To just enjoy that and be with that feeling is the best…. Anton, glad to hear the recovery is going well.
Overcoming injuries is a satisfying experience. Young, athletic not to mention ultra-athletes males are not at all at risk for osteoporosis. In fact, the more active one is, the more the risk of osteoporosis decreases. Weight bearing exercises strengthen bone tremendously.
Osteoarthritis is a different matter, but his joint space looks great on his xray so he definitely does not have osteoarthritis right now. And now easy — step by step for riding in the wind. The impatience and anxiety that comes with waiting on an injury to heal can be maddening.
Also, was that you on a single crutch at the Barr Trail race last month? Further, diet plays a role here too; with an increase in physical activity you have a corresponding increase in certain nutrients required for normal function. Additionally, genetics has a role as well. With genes that predispose you to osteoporosis, it essentially does not matter how much you exercise, as it will provide little help in thwarting it this has been observed ; too, certain races are also more prone to osteoporosis and identifying these genes in these races is something that is actively being researched , e.
Great news Tony! I love you thoughts on incorporating hiking into a running workout. As I have transitioned into ultra distnaces in the mountains I have found this to be very helpful. I think that doing some hiking has helped me avoid some of the overuse injuries I used to struggle with. Hey glad to see its fixed now and things are coming back together for you.. Good luck on the summit bagging and happy trails.
Feel free to give him a shout out. Really happy to hear you will back soon!!! I am so glad to hear your recovery is going well! It was so nice to meet you in Manitou last weekend before my race. Happy things are getting back to normal for you, Anton.
You deserve it! You two really do a lot for the community with your posts! Hope you keep enjoying yourself. Good to know you are back on your legs! So what will you do about UTMB? Just curious, when you ran WS, did you run all the way to the top of the escarpment at the start of the race or did you hike at all?
