I am feeling recovered from my last race in Italy and before I continue traveling in less than two weeks to Colorado / US for my next race, the Leadville 100 (my second attempt to run 100miles) I will try to train hard this upcoming week. Its good to be back in my mountain house, always changing training ground is exhausting…

90min Tempo Hill Run

This road course is one of my favourite, the first uphill section is about 5.5km long with around 300m of elevation gain. I challenged today my own record for the first uphill part (29min) today I managed to run it in 26min30second which is a big improvement!

Total Distance: 26km Total Elevation: 645m
strength training 30min: core and upper body
5h50min Long Run
Total Distance: 60km Total Elevation: 1495m
Today was my longest single training run I ever did. (previously 55km)
Usually I run this route 30km out and back course on hilly road, but today after I got back to my place, I refueled and went out again. Its mentally quite tought to run the same course twice, but this was also a good practice run, since my next race will be a 50mile out and back course, which I have never done before.
Today we were supposed to to a long technical trail run, however we decided to skip it. Instead I got a 2h long massage ;) good decision since my body was quite exhausted from a tough week of running.
Run: Distance: 182.5 km Time: 17h20min Total Ascent: 4530m
Strength Training: 30min Bike: -
As far as I remember, this was my biggest training week in terms of distance I ever did! At the same time I was surprised that I covered this much of elevation. Very satisfying week of training!
