Nice trail run on a snowy mountain outside Sofia. Was wearing flats so the footing was quite tricky, but incredibly beautiful.

Rest day!!! Traveling today so thought I’d take it easy

core 10:00 [3]

running 1:15:13 [3] 10.01 mi (7:31 / mi) +127m 7:14 / mi
ahr:154 max:178

So the first 7 miles of this felt amazing. Just super easy miles rolling away through the crisp night air. And then mile 7 hit and the final 3 miles were pain. Not completely awful just cramped up and had to push more then I wanted to get through. This could have been because I ate to soon before, had dinner only two hours earlier or my body telling me I should have ran only 8 miles, or something else.

Also my route was so nice, this meandering bike path through the woods following a stream. And I was hard core vibing and then it just boom ended on a big road, at mile 4.2ish and I was so mad, like why end such a beautiful trail, there must be more river or something. But then it turned out I had hit the ocean so I guess they had an excuse.

Warm up

running 41:51 [3] 4.39 mi (9:32 / mi) +526m 6:57 / mi
ahr:156 max:170

Ugg hill reps are hard.

6 by 3 minute with 3 minute rep. With my previous statement standing I felt much better today then last week when I did 8 by 2 minute. Even with the same rest and longer up time I was getting to the same spot by two minutes I got to last time and feeling stronger. Really the hardest part of this workout was getting back down in 3 minutes with no headlight (I almost said torch I’ve been here to long). Thankfully I could run in the light of the others.

So the hills were rough but doable but then we had to do a shorter 4 by 20 second sprint cool down and while this was supposed to just be some light recovery it really almost killed me.

running 55:41 [3] 7.69 mi (7:14 / mi) +27m 7:10 / mi
ahr:150 max:168

An absolutely great run. Legs felt fresh, breathing was easy and the miles went quick. One of those runs where you have to hold back from running to fast. Shins still hurt a bit at the end so not entirely ready to start increasing mileage and intensity but will slowly start to up it over the next two weeks or so.

ahr:155 max:177

First real forest race while here in Scotland. It went pretty well. My body was not rested at all for this and I struggled with picking up speed throughout the entire race. I wasn't running slow per say, more just wasn't pushing. For example when I got to hills I just kind of shrugged and walked. Navigation was fairly clean a few bobbles at the end but nothing major. I did feel myself losing focus about 75% of the way through the course which led to my small bobbles which I want to work on. Both getting fitter so I am not quite so tired but I also working on navigating while tired. I was actually surprised by how tired I got in this race considering I wasn't pushing, not sure if its the training or I was just pushing harder then I thought.

I accidentally got rid of my map, so no quickroute but here's a route gadget results there as well.
