Turtlehead Peak Trail Run and Analysis (Red Rock Canyon Conservation Area)

Turtlehead Peak Trail Run and Analysis (Red Rock Canyon Conservation Area)

Just outside of Las Vegas is the Red Rock Canyon Conservation Area. Last year about this same time I ran partway up Turtlehead Peak from the Calico Tanks trail at the Sandstone Quarry parking lot, but ran out of time and got lost a time or two too many.

This time there are new trail markers which made it a lot easier, plus I’d uploaded a GPX from another runner on Strava to my Suunto for slightly better route-finding. After this run I felt pretty good considering my current injuries which is inspiring looking forward to 2021.

Here I spend a few minutes on the trail, then a few minutes digging through the numbers to help show you some ideas for how you could do the same analysis for your workouts.
