18.11.2007 Nuuksio half marathon

An hour done and goes fine
Some uphill training
Back at the base
The long exercise of the week was done in Nuuksio paths. It offered ice covered rocks as well as snow covered logs and trails, mixture of mud and ice. Guys carried overweighed backpacks in a nicely varying trails bit over four hours. The distance covered equalled half marathon and everyone got their share of exercise for the day. The trek was a good practice for a slippery conditions since the trails were already pretty icy, waiting for the real winter to arrive. At dusk the group arrived back at the base steaming from the moisture.
