Thu: just a few intervals, considering a race on Saturday. 3 x (800m + 400m + 200m). 60 sec rest, 120 sec set rest. 10 km total with extra jog

Fri: We went out to Fornstigen for a summery trail run. Maybe we focused a little bit too much on having great company, or at least we got lost much more than I did on my own this past Tuesday. I really enjoyed it though, a happy day out in the country-side! 18 km.

Magnus Ladulåsloppet 10 km race! +25C, sunny, almost 80 km so far this week. Clearly, this race was just for training - my only preparation was running fewer intervals than usual two days ago.

It wasn't a classic flat road race, but rather a mix of maybe 3 km concrete, 4 km gravel road, 3 km trail. I think this should fit me well.

I placed myself behind a runner from Spårvägen (fastest club in town) and started slightly slower than the rest to get an idea of how the race would turn out. I watched the Spårvägen singlet disappear quickly, but decided to hang on to the guy in 2nd position. So I did, up until 8 km. I had to work pretty hard but I had a feeling me might be even more tired. Plus there's always a risk of somebody coming from behind. So I overtook him, making the pace a little more uncomfortable. I could hear him trying to keep up but it seemed like he lost some distance going uphills. I still wasn't sure so I spurted for the last km (ugh) and finished 2nd! Yay! Final time 37:37.

3:41, 3:38, 3:42, 3:36, 3:49, 4:06, 4:31, 3:48, 3:33, 3:18 (km 5-7 was trail going uphill)


And then, 10 km easy distance later when I got back home.

Sunday, and time to close this week. I needed 21 km to reach 120 km and that was exactly what I did. I ran into the nature reserve as I usually do, but made some variations and followed a new trail, the yellow one, for the first time. So beautiful! Now I just have to bring other people there so that they can enjoy it too.

Well done on your 2nd place :)

..and that's a lot of km's for a week!
It's not what you do occasionally that makes a difference, it's that which you do everyday that brings progress.

Thanks! It's always fun representing Vegan Runners :) 120 is a lot but I will probably need to step up training to 130-150 km/week in a while, it seems like the winning concept for getting better.

Mon: 6 km morning jog, 4.54 min/km
Mon: 18 km distance, 4:39 min/km
Tue: Hill intervals. 30 min, distance measured to 7.5 km, don't know how accurate that is. 5 km warm-up jog + 6 km jog home
Wed: 10 km morning jog

Nice mileage.

I see one of your IF Linnea teammates is doing the 3x3000 Ultra too. Not tempted to tag along?

Oh really, who's that? I couldn't find an entry system at http://www.highterrainevents.co.uk/24.html and no familiar faces at the FB event either... one of my club mates said she wanted to go to Lake District, but I don't think she ended up doing so.

I was out this weekend with a guy who's doing Sweden Sky Race, 100 km and 6000 height meters. http://www.swedenskyrace24.se/about-english/general/. I wouldn't do that even if I was paid for it right now. Reason? I've turned very competitive :) Doing a long, tough and wild race is appealing in theory. But doing it without being properly prepared isn't appealing at all. I can't travel for hours every day to reach a realistic environment for training. I kind of wish I lived in Tromsoe, like Emilie Forsberg. I think I'd do a lot of crazy mountain races if I did. But I live in flat city, built on ten-fifteen islands, surrounded by water. So right now I'm realistic. I focus on getting fast and I avoid sky running events.

Training so far this week:
Mon: 10 km morning jog, 4:44
Mon: 15 km trail running, 5:44
Tue: 6x1500m, 60 sec rest. The guy I ran with started off fast, I hung on and he quit early. So my intervals got slower and slower. :( 3:18, 3:29, 3:26, 3:29, 3:27, 3:33. 5+6 km jog before and after so 20 km total.

Having a summer house in Tromsö would be pretty awesome... not tempted at sky racing right now though, I'm not in good enough shape by my own standards.

Training is very solid at the moment, almost grim. New weekly record this week: 170 km. Can't decide how to log it all, I'd like a very neat training diary, but it takes too much time keeping one.

Summer has brought a heat wave upon us and it made me try what we call "swimrun", trail running mixed with swimming across lakes or open water. I'm hooked! No plans on joining a race or anything, it's just a great way of spending time outdoors. My longest session so far was five hours, 34 km trail running mixed with swimming across 8 (small) lakes.

Last three weeks:

20140714: 10 km morning jog

v 33 (95 km)

Highlights this week:

1. I got myself a pair of running spikes! 10 minutes workout ended up in four days of sore calves. Ouch.

2. I signed up for a 10 km race, simply because I felt like racing. The race is called Midnattsloppet, actually the largest 10km race in Europe, with more than 40.000 people attending. My goal was getting a decent position within my club and maybe a time close to my PR (although this course is not meant for setting a PR). I failed pretty bad at both :( Finished as #4 among my club mates in 35:37. What I learn from this is.. maybe I need rest days? I'll try some tapering before the upcoming, more important 10k races this autumn.

20140811: 19 km, 4:40 min/km
20140812: 10x300m, 100m jog rest. ~3:15 min/km? the course isn't actually 400m and I'm not sure if the GPS can be trusted with curves
20140812: 10 km
20140813: 11 km
20140814: 5 km
20140815: 4 km (with quick strides)
20140816: Midnattsloppet 10 km race. 35:37, #61/30000+. (3:21, 3:16, 3:36, 3:44, 3:38, 3:40, 3:26, 3:42, 3:45, 3:23)
20140817: 13 km
20140817: 7 km

v 34 (70 km)

Current plan: turning my large volume of running this summer into speed. So fewer miles, but faster running. I have one 10 km race next week, a 3000m race the week after that and one more 10k in October. I'd rate the October race as the most important one.

This week meant three speed workouts, (1+1+2+1)x1700m, 10x300m wearing running spikes and a 5 km relay race representing Vegan Runners. We finished as #5 just like last year and got a prize! woho. I ran the first leg and placed #2 with a good overall feeling.

Image

20140819: (1+1+2+1)x1700m, 1 min rest. lactic acid... 16 km total
20140820: 10 km easy trail
20140821: 10x300m, 100m jog rest.
20140821: 6 km easy
20140822: 10 km easy
20140823: Bellmanstafetten relay race 5 km, #5/760. 17:09 = 3:25 min/km
20140823: 11 km easy
