Sunday May 6 #

10 AM

Run (Treadmill) 1:20:00 [3] 7.9 mi (10:08 / mi)
shoes: ON Cloudsurfer (Gray)

Run 1: Prague marathon OR 2hr flat easy road run. I wasn’t sure about the Prague marathon and would suggest not doing it if you are ok with that, since it is so close to the ultra. But if you are doing it just take it easy and really focus on staying hydrated to help with a faster recovery. Or if doing the 2hr training run, treat it like a normal “race rehearsal” and use the gear you’ll be starting with at the Ultrabalaton. And easy effort here too :)

Nice, easy run but went easy due to the knee. Felt good once I warmed up.

1 PM

Hike (Outside) 32:49 [0] 1.83 mi (17:56 / mi)
shoes: ON Cloudsurfer (Gray)

Super short hike in the small Carpathians to see some ruins - we got to see the White Stone Castle ruins, pretty cool stuff. Kodi LOVES hiking! There was a bit of scrambling too, she just looks back at us, thinking, "come on you guys, why can't you just get over the rocks quicker!" Haha!

Run (Treadmill) 1:39:00 [4] 10.5 mi (9:26 / mi)
shoes: ON Cloudsurfer (Gray)

Well... wanted to do a tempo since those really helped me last summer but I didn't do as much as I wanted to, knee was bothering me a bit. But the pain always goes away after about 2 miles. It hurts when I sit or twist it in weird ways but as soon as I'm running or walking it feels good. Although as soon as I started walking, it hurt a tad... :(

Started at 9.5kmph
At 7km increased to 11.0kmph
At 10km increased to 12.0 kmph
At 11km decreased to 11.0 kmph
At 12km decreased to 9.8 kmph
Finished at 11.0kmph

Good run overall!

Run (Treadmill) 1:39:00 [4] 10.4 mi (9:31 / mi)
shoes: ON Cloudsurfer (Gray)

Run 2: Last full workout Early in week. Hill Marathon + Flat Marathon combo workout. You can do this all on the TM, or as a mix by doing the hill part on the treadmill and then the flat part outdoors on flat roads.
a. 5:00 warmup and a few flat strides.
b. Run 35:00 up a 4% hill at 9:00 Pace.
c. Then run 35:00 flat at 8:05 Pace.
d. 5:00 of easy flat running for your cool-down.

I did a 10 min warm up then strides at 10 mph. I did the 4% hill at about 10:30-10:40 m/miles, then I ran the 35 min flat at about 6.8 mph. Tough run to get to my actual paces, but I did it.

7 AM

Bike (Commute) 18:00 [1] 2.24 mi (8:02 / mi)

I wanted to do a double since I haven't done any this year and I remember these really helping me last summer during Keys and Vermont.

Tough run but it felt really good to go faster!

Commute to work, it's a tiny little good workout, actually.

shoes: ON Cloudsurfer (Gray)

Run 4: 45:00 easy flat recovery run.

I couldn't get up, I think I'm still tired from the race. So, I got on the treadmill as soon as I got home and did an easy 40 min.

1 PM

Run (Outside) 2:05:56 [2] 12.34 mi (10:12 / mi)
shoes: ON Cloudsurfer (Gray)

Decided to try for about an hour to see how the knee felt. I took a pretty bad fall during the race and my knee was really hurting, so I figured I needed to go out and see how it felt.

Anyway, obviously, the knee felt fine. Haha!
