spinning (Spin) 35:00 [3]

I had hoped to do a long ride today but it rained all day. I did manage to get to the spin bike. I split every 5 minutes into categories of fast spinning, standing hill, sitting hill, and flat road.

I have a 5k scheduled for the next 2 Saturdays but I have a change. The 15th we will be in Austin for the weekend so I will do a 5k there on Sunday. I should be able to do the next one as scheduled.

I appreciate you finding me two 50 mile choices. Neither one really spoke to me. I looked as well and didn’t see anything. That lead me to think I may not really want to do one. I changed my search criteria and did find these 2. I still have to do research. I’m thinking of the 24 hr Hallucination or 12 hr at Do Stop

I also appreciate you willing to change up race week. I will say that I’ve noticed I feel the best when I have 2 rest days before a race. Rather than making me sluggish, which is where I live, it helps me get my energy reserve up and aches down.

Trail Run long (Long hilly) 3:00:00 [4] 13.25 mi (13:35 / mi)

This was a hilly trail I started slow but got into a rhythm pretty quick. I noticed I started to slow down so at 2 hrs, I started a new process. Rather than charging up the hills, I start slow and then try to gain a bit of speed by the end and gently start downhill and push just a bit more then. This worked well and I’ll keep practicing. I run the same line and same way that I ride. I need to change this but old habits die hard.

Treadmill hills (On/off hills) 50:00 [5] 4.3 mi (11:38 / mi)

This was tougher than the tempo run but I did pretty well. Virtually all of the hill minutes were as written. I did have one coughing spell and had to hang on. The off minutes were not as perfect. I generally had to hang on for a few seconds to catch my breath at the beginning of each one. Overall this was the best hill run in a while.

Trail Run (Recovery) 52:00 [3] 4.5 mi (11:33 / mi)

The weather yesterday morning was 72 degrees and almost 100% humidity. Today it was 36 degrees and hailing. The hail was small bit it poured on me the entire run. It was also windy. At first I felt good that I wasn’t cold and then I realized I was dressed for a blizzard. The run itself was slow. The trail was slick and muddy. By the end it was a creek and I decided to quit a bit early. When I hit the road, the wind was too much to fight.

Concrete/road run tempo (20 min @ 10:10) 50:00 [4] 4.5 mi (11:07 / mi)

The run was close to what you had written. The first mile was slow and I wasn’t sure if I could do the run but I kept pushing. At about a mile, my left ankle loosened up and I could push. The first 10 min of tempo work fluctuated from 9:50 to 10:20. The second 10 min were closer to evenly placed. The cool down was good.

Trail Run (Super easy) 45:00 [3] 3.75 mi (12:00 / mi)

Easy trail run. My plan had been the 60 min run but I got started late and it was rainy. My ankles are still bothering me. I spent 30 minutes rolling my calves which hopefully will help.
