Kill Creek route test resultsA couple of days ago I put out a route choice test from Kill Creek. The map below shows the results.
Straight (B)was fastest at 6:30. The C route took me 7:20, and the A route took 8:30.
The time differences were bigger than I expected.
I think if you look carefully at A, you'll see how much extra distance I did. You might be tempted to say that I loafed, but I don't think I did. I ran with a heart rate monitor and the average heart rates were comparable. Actually, I might have lost a little time on A when I pushed a bit too hard up the last hill and had to slow down the last 100 meters to the control.
B might be a bit faster than it looks on the map because I got a very good line through the light green forest up the hill. posted by Michael | 5:48 PM
