Experimental Interval Training Hike - Butler Sanctuary

  • Mar 21, 2014 · 2:00 PM
  • This location is shown only to members



INTERVAL TRAINING PACE.  - THIS HIKE IS AN EXPERIMENTAL GROUP HIKE ACTIVITY, only people who have hiked with me in the past and who have a general idea of my BASE pace are invited. The objective of this hike will be that of gettting our heart rate up and then bringing it down, we will repeat this cycle.  Each individual will take the inclines at the fastest rate they feel comfortable with.  Once on top and on the downhill, "EVERYBODY" will slow down to a "SLOW" pace.  We will go slow enough so the slowest can catch up and have the opportunity to bring their heart rate down. We will then repeat this cycle.  If you have a heart moniter, consider bringing it.

    I hope you'll do another in the coming weeks - would like to join you, but my weekday schedule fluctuates and often prevents it

    Mud was suprisingly minimal, a few very small spots had ice, patches of snow on the north facing slope and northern marsh. We were all glad to get out and have a spirited hike and discussion.

    I know Butler like the back of my hand. We are avoiding the major mud areas. Where we will encounter some mud is in a few low areas where we are going slow. If the uphill trails are in spots muddy - then in those spots we have to go slow.

    I'm thinking about it but isn't the mud ankle deep this time of year?
