Overall another great week. This is my third week of 8 hours of training so it's time for a rest week next week to allow the training effect to happen. Altras busted a huge hole in the sidewall on Saturday. After only 400km I think I'm going to have to retire them. Wasn't a fan of these shoes overall. I have a pair of Salomon Sense Pro 3's coming in the mail.
No running today since recovering from long run yesterday. Physio exercises and tons of water throughout the day.
This was a little reconnaissance mission to see if Mt Finlayson was within running distance of the house. Spoiler alert: it was! I think this means it might be my new favourite long run, despite a mandatory and fairly sizeable stretch of road.
Still making a point of drinking tons of water throughout the day.
Did physio exercises throughout the day. Warmed up for 20 minutes. Once at Highlands road, ran 1 minute at 5km pace (on) and 1 minute at 42km pace (off). Then 2 minutes on and 2 minutes off, etc. From 1 minute to 5 minutes and then back down to 1 minute. Felt so fun to run fast!
Feeling a little beat on this run. Maybe time for a rest day.
Did physio exercises throughout the day for IT band.
