Put in another week like the previous, but without the high altitude. Just over 10 hours of running and just under 10,000' of verticle.
Monday and Tuesday were more on the recovery side w/ a few uphill strides thrown in there.
Wednesday was a progression run that did not progress as planned. 3 mile w/u with some strides, then a 7 mile progression. After about 3 miles any progression had me struggling so just cruised at whatever I felt I could handle for the rest of the run.
Thursday was some more recovery followed by a moderate 90 minutes on Friday.
Felt strong on Saturday going 40 minutes at 1 hard/1 easy, 16 reps were uphill and 4 were down for 1,500' of climbing. With w/u and c/d this was a 90 minute run.
Nice and long and easy on Sunday with a good amount of climbing. 2:33 w/ 3,730' of up/down. Struggled a bit on anything steep, but felt really good on all the moderate stuff.
Can't beat blue tongues, snowcones, and a ball game on a Sunday afternoon.
