v 37 (91 km)
I got sick after Runday Race Day, a bit of a fever, itchy throat and a cold. It has affected training for a while and maybe I've been too eager to get back, prolonging it. As soon as my throat's been fine, I've just jumped back onto it. This week also had to be altered but I finished off with a very positive running session in the woods where I felt strong and light. It's always fun overtaking MTB cyclists!
I've also started doing planned days, right now Mondays, instead of having "recovery runs". Actually I think it is a good idea, I don't think my body is ready yet for months of continuous training? A lesson that can only be learned from trying
20140909: 2x(100+200+300+400m). 100m jog rest, 200m set rest. 19, 37, 57, 1:19. 18, 37, 56, 1:22. Pretty easy and controlled but after this, my pulse skyrocketed and I aborted (had planned for 4), afraid I wasn't recovered yet.
20140910: 10 km super easy
20140911: 6 km morning jog
20140911: 5x2000m threshold, running back and forth at the hilly side of Årstaviken. Exactly what I need. 7:58/7:58/7:58 one direction, 7:48/7:47 the other. Never ran so evenly before. 19 km total with long jog home
20140912: 11 km easy trail
20140913: Plan: 10 km progressive to race pace. My stomach wasn't in shape, I had to make a quick stop at 7 km and couldn't really focus on running.
4:12, 4:08, 4:06, 3:58, 3:54, 3:44 (oops), 3:45, 3:39, 3:33, 3:37 (boo).
20140914: 16 km hard trail running, very positive feeling. 4:50 pace going Hellasgården-Erstavik-Hellasgården (green+blue trails, turning off for the well at the orange trail).
20140914: 6 km easy jog back home through the forest
