Week 6 Session 1
After last weekend’s double higher-end long efforts this training session was surely going to be just not executable. Too early. However I decided to do so, as the track is closed and running at race-specific speeds on shitty roadsides, alone in the dark is something that I do not really appreciate. If I planned out a session on a particular measure pavement section, that is okay, but not jumping up and down on sideways…
- 6 x 1000 @ 3:35/km /r2:00
Results: I was not feeling great and trying to stay just relaxed and finish the sets without breaking down. I used my long run Clifton, that is not that suitable for this kind of work. I prefer a more precise fitting fast shoe !
Week 6 Session 2
Objective: A longish off-road endurance set with some some turns and twists.
- 4 x 2.4k aerobic
Results: Feeling annoyed by toilet breaks, shoe tightness and the effort was feeling high, despite low speeds. Failing to find my rhythm. Probably due to recent diet changes 😀 😀 😀 Christmas time. No, in reality I don’t eat crap, ever. No fast foods. No coke, no alcohol or any kind of cake overdose for me. However, I am a runner, I can eat. Give me a duck, I eat all. Give me black pudding I eat all. Give me a good hearty xmas soup I eat. I can very well overeat from the good stuff too. Like mangos and papayas as our family is from the Antilles.
Week 6 Session 3
Objective: The Long Run
Results: Planned out a 35km route. It felt harder than it should have been. An offroad circle on rocky terrain with 800m of gain.
- 35km – 3:48 – D+800 oHRavg138
