Hill ints up Uetliberg again but this time only 4x4 min and longer recoveries (2-2.5mins) because I did it with a friend who hadn't done hill intervals before and needed easing into it :)
I think I pushed the ints themselves a bit harder than last week though.

Camp relay leg one for the coaches team, mass start with the boys!
Super happy with this run, racing hard, made smart route choices and had the nav mostly in control.
Set off from the mass start at a mad pace and beat all the boys to the first control - I knew I wouldn't be able to keep up for the whole course so had to win something ;) Just tried to keep ups on the way to the second control, lost map contact momentarily. Then got dropped on the hill out of two, then ran the next few alone. In the second half I caught up a few who had dropped time, and had a fun race through the last controls.
So much fun! And such beautiful, technical forest!! Alpine larch is my favorite :)

Third leg of the relay. Running alone and was really feeling tired and was technically sloppy.
A bit off in the control circle on 3 controls, 1.5min parallel error on one, and lost map contact and messed one route. Physically tough with a lot of climb, didn't have such a racing feeling. Still fun though.

Jog to the start carrying water bottles.
The training today was above 2300m with some speccy views! Could hear lots of cowbell ringing just from the slopes below as the Sierre-Zinal mountain run was on.

Downhill O, 2.5km with over 400m descent! From Tignousa to St Luc in the forest under the funicular.
I love running downhill and my last few runs have been good technically, so I was way too overconfident, rushed and made a total mess of it. Made a 1min, 1.5min and 3min mistake, and was very risky but lucky on a couple of others.
Downhill training is a perfect test of discipline though, have to do more.
