The 2019!! Cyclical totals discussion thread.

Post by Jim_H » Mar 24 2009 1:52 pm

How are things progressing this year? In keeping with the idea that you are only as good as the numbers you post, I'm up to 61,436' of elevation for the year and a modest 132 miles.
Added August 2019: Looking back 10 years later, I honestly can't think of anything more offensive or unhealthy to say about one's hiking, than the above statement. Thats was my OP in 2009. Hiking should never just be about the stats recorded.

Doing Whitney? Which route? Don't forget to "acclimate" on the Meysan lake Trail. ;)
.....I live at 9,000' so the acclimation may not be too much of an issue... I'll be hiking with a Tucsonan... so, it should be a relatively easy day for me; I'll be going at her pace... I didn't have any problem on wheeler a few months ago and I'm hiking 30 pounds lighter now. It should be a fun day.

You lost 30 pounds from hiking or your pack is 30 pounds lighter?

Man, you two can really rack up the elevation gain. :sweat: I think this is the first year that I've actually paid attention to what my elevation gain was when I posted all my triplogs. My triplogs from previous years, I only focused on mileage & time & what day and didn't even bother to enter in an AEG for generic posts or make sure the default was what I actually did... :?

...I spent three months training at 210 to 200 pounds, then in June cut to 195... August cut to 176.... will finish the cut down to 165 in September for the fall hiking event (four loops on Finger Rock trail). As I cut the body weight, I begin training with heavier and heavier packs to preserve the muscle developed with the heavier body mass.

I was wondering if the higher general elevations reflected in the data might be that more people were posting more accurately, or posting more of their activity as opposed to hiking more. The jump in the stats looks substantial over the past year.

Just a couple more days remaining in this 100,000' elevation gain month; I am looking forward to getting back to a "regular" schedule!

Nice work!!! :sweat: I've been the exact opposite... :( I've slowly creeped up from 185-190 a few years ago when I was working construction to 215 recently. I still hike about the same amount as I did back then, its just my career change makes a big difference and my metabalism may be slowing down a bit now that I'm older... I just need to find the drive to eat less and hike more often and harder. ;)

Unless speed on the trail is a big issue, hiking or running at a reasonably heavier weight seems to work pretty well. I'm only 5'9", yet enjoyed ultra-distance running on trails at 190... now, I want an easier time of it, so the cut down into the 160's.... they are beginning to talk like there may be some advantages relative to longevity with lower body weight averages. It is easier to clock all that elevation and mileage at the lower weight!

[-X I jumped back up ahead of Nick :) . I'm ahead by .05 miles :lol: . Right about now I imagine Nick is faking the swine flu to leave work so he can run up Romero Canyon a couple times this afternoon and put me back in my place :lol: . Truth be told, if he didn't have that injury earlier this year, Nick would have about 12 times my mileage right now :o
