11 AM

running 26:48 [3] 6.0 km (4:28 / km)

6 x 1 km. 4:43-38-36-26-15-38

Don’t know what’s wrong with me that I’m not able to hold the right intensity. Wasn’t expecting to feel great and wanted to just do 8 reps around 4:40-4:30. Pushed too hard, wasn’t able to finish the session, felt slow and heavy af. Give me a treadmill where I can set the pace, I hate track it just makes me feel slow and bad and useless.

running 31:00 [1] 5.4 km (5:44 / km)

After some brainstorming with Hakis we came to some conclusions:

1) tapering never really worked for me
2) I always felt at my best at super random times, usually shortly after a week of brutal brutal training, might have to investigate that,
3) big mileage, low intensity ints works for me
4) have to account for stress of going to school/work - after svalbard I kept the training the same (even increased mileage) but changed surface (from treaddo to paths and hills), added school, work --> resulted in me feeling worse and worse for WEEKS before I fell ill
5) im not fast but i can run far

running 20:00 [3] 3.1 km (6:27 / km) +300m 4:21 / km

plan was an uphill tempo to Dvoračky (9 km, +730 m) but i had a realllllly poor night of sleep so i decided against that 10' into the workout. in the end i did a fartlek, hard in the uphills, nice! legs felt really good, just my eyes were closing :')))) cooool 5 days in the mountains, hopefully my legs came out of their winter-svalbard-treadmill-nohills hibernation

This is probably the first long run ever when I didn't stuff myself as much as I could for breakfast and then ran the whole thing with one bar (not that I would always starve myself during long runs, just that I was stuffed as a turkey half of the time so I didn't need any food).

Today I just ate a really normal breakfast (toast breads and jam) and carried a lot of gels and protein bars and přesnídávky with me. Was great! Didn't really follow the '45 mins rule' and I just stopped to eat whenever I started feeling hungry. Worked really really well for me! In the end I ate 1 big přesnídávka, 1.6 protein bars and 2 GU gels with caffeine. Maybe that's also the reason why this felt so chill?
10 AM

running 4:38:00 [2] 37.63 km (7:23 / km) +1834m 5:56 / km
ahr:144 max:165

Long ruuun in Krkonoše! First a big big uphill, then some flat, technical downhill, another steep uphill, flat, traverse path in Poland (BEAUTIFUL), snacks, gels, bars, drinking from creeks, brutal uphill, wavy ridge, almost dying of thirst but luckily finding water, traverse, big path on the ridges, rocks, views, and a brutal 3k with -900 m in the end, blehh. The whole thing was SUPER nice, mostly technical rocky paths. And I didn't really go through any crisis, like what??? Legs felt quite tired from the beginning both in the uphills and downhills (no surprise) but they didn't really get that much tireder, I was just cruisin' and vibin', could have kept going forever. <3 Wooohooo next time I'm gonna go longer!
