12 more slow km tonight. I read a blog post just recently on not going all in during interval sessions because it ruins the training for the next few days. I feel like I could have written it.

2h 50min trail running, wearing my Merrell trail gloves. I think that will help improve my forefoot running, which in turn will come in useful as I try to become a faster 10km runner. I tried to focus on a short stride, landing below my body and staying comfortable. I only had water and two small gel blocks and I still didn't feel weary afterwards, and I didn't start stumbling and falling over at the end. (for a change)

Very enjoyable day out in the woods! And probably good exercise for my calves.

30 min walk home to avoid running on concrete in barefoot shoes.

Based on assumed pace (6:30? but I don't know), that would mean 26 km.

2 km
5x3x400m, 100m jog rest, 90 sec set rest
2 km

Ugh. I prefer my usual weekly schedule: intervals Tue+Thu with not-so-weary legs, and long runs Fri-Sat-Sun.

Thursday intervals wasn't really an option this week as I could hardly walk from the soreness in my thighs. Today, that soreness was finally gone, just to be replaced by sore calves instead from the barefoot running yesterday. Oh well... I got it done, and I got tired.

I do think I push myself harder when I'm not on my own though, I don't really get that adrenaline rush with no-one around. Next week = back to track with IF Linnéa.

"Recovery" run around Årstaviken + a little extra. 12 km. I used to race around that little bay a couple of years ago so maybe I got into race mode. At least it felt like the runners that I passed hardly moved at all. Although I doubt it that I broke any records with 110 km done so far this week.

Long trail run again. I think my body would have voted against this whole idea so it was a mind over matter kind of thing. I was out for 2h 30min and tried to keep low intensity, with various success. I walked up some steep hills, subconsciously started speeding whenever I saw other people and ended up in a state where I had to tell my legs to please keep moving forward. Distance is totally unknown but maybe 25 km?

I think that will do for now. New all-time-high for weekly amount!

I had an idea of taking a rest day today. But then I got invited to running Ursvik Extreme (15 km, pretty hilly) at relaxed pace, so why not? Actually I feel less stiff now after doing that. But I guess it's a bad idea doing a second session even though the weather is pretty tempting...

Open with training organized by Stockholms Brantaste at Hammarbybacken ski slope

I can't say I was alert today. But I think I have built up a pretty solid endurance by now, compared to the average runner? I wasn't the fastest at the short intervals, but for the last long interval, I actually was. Despite 150 km last week.

I kind of feel like doing the race now, there was one disco guy around today who would be fun to beat :)

total distance: maybe 11 km

Instead of running, I did a 75 min class called "CrossNature". I guess crossfit, outdoors? I find core strength training pretty boring so I had an idea of doing this regularly, to make it more of a habit. It was a little bit of fun, but not super fun.
