Santiago Area Time Tracking

Random Black Star Shot

Random Black Star Shot

This is a purely personal tracking post of no value whatsoever to anyone but me, and probably not even me. If it has any extrinsic value, it’s probably as a reference for how a middle-of-the-pack hiker / runner / terrible biker does on various distances and times on these particular routes. If you aspire to consume such extraneous beta, welcome!

BTW, my motivation for this page is to track health issues and performance impact, especially current injuries (primarily plantar fasciitis) and other issues (possible iron deficiency).

Santiago / Saddleback Peak (Area)

This section covers all hikes in the area, including Saddleback and Modjeska, and everything north to the 91.

Black Star

Variants include BS to Crest (4.5 miles one-way), BS to Beek’s (8 miles OW), BS to Radio Tower 8.25 miles OO) and BS to Hagador Peak (TBD).

Mountain Biking

A lot of splits are missing. I think best time to Beek’s as of 8/24/20 is 1:22, usual time is 1:25. I don’t really track downhill to avoid incentive to kill myself at high speed, but highest speed so far is close to 40mph (max)…which is probably too high.

Notes
  • 8/24/20 – Obviously biking should be much faster. Starting iron supplementation today to see if it helps with breathlessness, energy and bonking. Two-four weeks until I know, assuming no other issues. Continue with additional electrolyte supplements started last week.

Peace
