Run warm up/down 15:00  2.17 km (6:55 / km)
Calves very sore, stomach not happy either
Run intervals 45:00  8.33 km (5:24 / km)
Club intervals. 3x4mins, 3x3mins, 2x2mins with 2mins rec in between everything. Up the lysloper so the 4s were all uphill, one 3 was downhill with the others being flat/ gradual uphill, and the 2s were also uphill. Definitely did not expect to do the whole session. Started even though my calves were sore, but as expected they weren't so bad once I got a better stride going. Still felt awful regardless, particularly on the first one. Struggling to keep up with Eva after being comfortably ahead last week (though she is very strong on the hills). Didn't take it too hard because I knew I would probably break something so just tried to hang on to her - this actually ended up being quite good, because I started to feel better as the session went on, even getting ahead at the end of some of the reps, and I actually needed to go that pace to keep it up for the whole session. This is why its so much better to do intervals in a group, I no doubt would have gone too hard at the start and died at the end or not finished the session. So it was actually good to do a longer one because I struggle to do these on my own. Felt the calves again at the start of the 2s and tried to not overdo it at the end, which was hard because I just wanted to go fast to finish...still ended up going pretty hard but I survived.
Run warm up/down 24:40  4.0 km (6:10 / km)
The downside of this was that because we had only gone out towards hoias (though turning back in the rests) it was a very long way back. Slow shuffle with Karoline and Idun, which was nice and easy as it was mostly downhill. Feeling the calves again so stopped running after this much, but still had to walk over a k to get home after this.
