San Jose Bank Holidays, two new workouts in Gredos
By Jorge Sanchez Coloma on Mar 23, 2009
This two bank holidays i went to Burgohondo near Gredos, in the last mountain before the valley. Near to Cebreros also where there is an interesting mountain race every year i ran last 3 years (this year is this weekend March 29th but i went to half marathon in Segovia because after race i schedule a lunch with ex-colleages at Oracle).
Anyway, i workout twice this long weekend and i want to share the tracks, even for me next time, because it's a pleasure look for new paths to work out, but it's a pleasure know where you go instead to take one worng way each time and find out infront of a private property everytime.
The first picture was a track (almost 20km) from outside Burgohondo to pick up some snow in the top of the peak. It was amazing, it looks near on the view but you though was longer but it's just 10km far from Burgohondo. I recomend this track a lot. Even if you have more time you can hike to the top.
The second one is a sorter track from outside Burgohondo to near the Majario distric, it's a pleasure path long the riber where you can find many birds, few little ribers where you have to jump and a good trail path to workout plenty of uphils and downhils.
This is a kind of 11km form road to road but of course you can add your own path to make it longer if you want.
I hope you would like as much as i did, and i hope see you then soon.
