Road Running warm up/down 18:00 [2] 3.5 km (5:09 / km)

Hill running race 2:59:29 [5] 42.2 km (4:15 / km) +1850m 3:29 / km

Jungfrau marathon. The toughest one so far but definitely the most satisfying. A few guys started pretty quick on the flat part so was in a group in 4-7th place with two Columbians and a Russian guy. The pace felt about right so just tried to tick off the kilometres. My stomach wasn’t good early on so had to force the drinks and energy in.

After 20km the guys started picking it up a bit, I probably should have eased off but kept with them until the start of the climb. Straight away it was a struggle going uphill but I tried to stick with William as we dropped the other two. Lost some ground before Wengen and was feeling particularly bad so focused on getting some gels and water in. The gap to William in 4th seemed less on the steeper part out of Wengen at 32km so I tried to reel him in. It was getting cold by then so I put on extra layers and felt a lot better. We passed the first of the lead group about 37km and straight after that I saw Mamu struggling. On the small downhill before the final steep climb I overtook him and William to get in to 2nd. I put in a big effort on the slippery rocky section after that and eventually saw the Moroccan who was in the lead and passed him. From then on I didn’t look back and pushed as hard as possible to the top and on the short downhill to the end. It was really foggy and I had no idea how big the gap was so didn’t take any chances. Enjoyed being involved in such a close race!

Running, mostly off road warm up/down 46:21 [2] 9.91 km (4:41 / km) +60m 4:32 / km

Warm up, cool down etc on the trails around the town.

Road Running 28:56 [5] 9.0 km (3:13 / km) +100m 3:03 / km

3 x 3km (3' easy) on the road loop at HoB with the uphill in the 1st km of each rep. Fairly average session, legs were moving fine but I was a bit tired from Sunday to push any more. The wind was coming from a different direction and slowed me in the final 1.8km of each rep. Happy enough with it and to get it done today instead of doing it tomorrow and having a day less recovery.

Jungfrau marathon is this Saturday. It's been a mixed summer of form but I've tried to work on flatter running in the last weeks so hopefully it'll help compared to where things were in June/July. Probably done more longer runs and strength work than usual so that may help too. Looking forward to it anyway.
