Grouse Grind
55 minutes ago
Guess what, Grinders? Start your stretches, eat your carbs and get some sleep... The Grouse Grind officially opens for the summer season tomorrow!

Share this status to spread the word!

First Skyride down is at 7:30am.
Times for now are 615am - 730pm

Current Best Times? 58 minutes
New Goal Time? Under 50 minutes
Frequency? Going to try to go at least 3-4x a week
Tips for the newbs? Bring a towel & bottle of water to keep yourself hydrated. Go at a steady and consistent pace. Don't be like some of those shirtless fools that sprint at the start and end up gasping for air 1/4 way through

Lol damn, I wouldn't be able to sit for a week, let alone go back to back the first time.

Every year I say I'll go, but I chicken out. This will be the year I really go. I'm expecting 2 hours maybe.

Is it dry? Can you get away with runners?

Relax. It's not that bad. you can get away with runners just about any time, I've done it in the pouring rain. The steps are easy and it's easy to be sure footed.

As Confucius say..

"It does not matter how slow you go, so long as you do not stop." That's a good tip.

Sometimes you just have to do things. Just drive there and make yourself do it. It's not some daunting huge task or anything.

Going back to back on the grind isn't hard at all. It really is no different then going to the gym two days in a row. It's just a different workout

I think the average time for the grind is 90 minutes. It took me 140 minutes the first time I went last year. I cut it down to 90ish minutes the second time I went. I ended up hitting 59 minutes a few times after.

The only part that isn't dry is the last 1/4. There's still snow up there so it gets a quite muddy up there. Just make sure you have good grip before taking your next step. I do the grind in runners

1hr1m today. Went up with runners and it was a big mistake especially since it was super slippery, felt like i was going to roll my ankle. Lots of water flowing down with the snow melting and the rain.

Good time given the conditions, I told myself I'd go up the whole weekend but hit the gym instead today

I always run up with these Nike ACG's



Got them on sale at MEC for $45 two years ago. Best $45 I've ever spent. Gore-tex exterior its been up the GG probably 100+ times and it's never failed me lol. They're heavy as fuck and the GF thinks they're ugly as sin but I love em.

It's easier than you think it is. Imagine walking up stairs for an hour and that's the grouse grind. People just think it's tough because they stop and rest which just makes things worse. Just choose a steady pace without stopping and you can hit an hr easy.

After today, it won't be dry. Runners are fine. I went up with adidas superstars. I've seen people wearing flipflops, high heels and going barefooted (after realizing high heels suck.. .
