One year ago this week
Solid week of running. I was gearing up for The Mt Evans Ascent and the Leadville Marathon. I'm currently coaching 6 Leadman/ Leadwomen and I've told them all that the bike needs to take a back seat right now and my own schedule reflects this. I felt that the bike training had to pretty much be over and done with at this point.
84 miles running/ 2:35 total biking. 17855ft vertical gain.
Monday was solid with 3 sessions finishing with the babyjogger. And red pen denotes quality or something positive. The babyjogger (~100+ pounds) is just brutally difficult up here at altitude with vertical.
Tuesday was 18 miles running.
Wednesday was my 4 Crosses hill which climbs over 800ft in 3/4 of a mile. I did it twice and negative split the two. I ran them as tempo effort or about Evans/ marathon effort.
Friday was 12 miles with 2000ft of vertical averaging 8:10 pace with an average HR of 139. Solid!
Saturday was an 18 mile tempo run averaging 6:24 pace (Garmin had it at 1700ft of vertical but that's high) and it felt quite easy and relaxed. This session showed me that I was nearly ready to crush Leadville.
This morning was 6 miles in 1:01:39. 10:16 pace with average HR 147. 957 feet of vertical.
