Road (75%+) 1:05:00 [1] 12.79 km (5:05 / km) +129m 4:50 / km
shoes: Hoka One One Speedgoat 2

Easy 65'

About as flat as I could manage around here. Knee a bit tight initially but eased off and was never uncomfortable throughout; didn't feel it at all on any of the uphill bits, such as they were.

Felt very good at the pace and legs fresh aside from the IT issue. Had a proper stretch of hammy's / glutes / quads after the run and will be rolling out the hip areas with a hockey ball and roller later on.

Off-road (75%+) 1:22:12 [2] 19.25 km (4:16 / km) +316m 3:57 / km
shoes: Hoka One One Speedgoat 2

80' moderate w/ strides

Felt better than yesterday, weather was cooler and very wet so everything just went along a bit fresher. Downhill from Argentiere to Chamonix and back up the same way. Faded a little bit pace-wise on the way back but managed the effort accordingly and didn't try to force anything. Clothes probably weighed about 40kg more with all the water in them so I'll put it down to that!

Felt my right groin and hip tighten up towards the end, which seemed to put pressure on my IT band. Spent a good amount of time stretching it out and rolling on a tennis ball, but will look at getting something a bit firmer to work out the tension in the hip and glutes.

Easy 90' w/ steep climb

Ran across from the layby near Montroc to Le Tours then up the steep way to Albert 1er hut via the moraine. Very steep and at times a bit too craggy for running but all in all felt like the right sort of angle and was able to get into a good rhythm for running it. Didn't continue on up to the hut itself but took the more 'touristy' track back along towards Col du Balme before dropping down to the midway lift station and then back to Le Tours.

Very much took my time on the descent, which is why the run was longer in terms of duration than planned. Great views and a nice trail to run back on. Felt a bit tired today for some reason, probably after the weekend and all the travel fuckery that was associated with it. Knee a bit twingey on the downhills too, feels like the IT band getting a bit tight.
