Comments Mostly cloudy and cold with strong wind, +4C. We did not follow our plan to run two times from Lans to Villard and back, but continued further from Villard towards Correncon. This meant that we only had two energy gels with us, since we had planned to get more from the car before heading out from Lans for the second time. So, we had to buy more in Villard. We had 468 meters of ascent and descent in our run. Total running this week 51.18K.
