going to the mountains this weekend (the close-by ones, not the big ones). will do at least one hike with the group, and if i can convince anyone to go with me i'll also run. the place is safe but less so than here and i don't know it well, so bad looks to head out alone. the two main peaks near where we're staying are both around 3000m. i hiked up one last fall so will agitate for the other.

related: i'm sitting at my desk at work and all i want to do is go out and run some more. good feeling. tomorrow morning long and easy.

- warm up run x 1.5 km

- hill sprints ~280m x 5, jog down recovery

- cool down 3.7 km
total distance 8.01 km*, total time 43:05. hills were hard but not as hard as last time. two friends came, which made it more fun, easier to push.

- stretch

*actually 8.4 km, but garmin decided to restart itself just as i hit the button to start running. nice. also its altimeter is hilarious, apparently the first hill sprint was actually a descent.

on that note, highly recommend this book:

- run 9.2 km in 45:20
pretty hilly and overall downhill then up: 44m of elevation gain. but i took it really easy on the steep hills and otherwise tried to just run relaxed. ended up at 4:55 pace, which is better than the other day for a longer run. i'll take it.

- stretch

Sooo, my dad had some heart issues and i had to be at my hometown all week. Thankfully everything went fine. Back on track today.

happened to my dad three years back. it was weird to realize that he's gotten old. glad your dad is okay.

killing it.

now all i want to do is miles and miles and more miles. didn't run this morning because gf correctly told me that i should give myself a little longer to recover than 14 hours after distance/duration PR. will not run tonight but tomorrow morning gonna get up early and do at 9+ km. 8 km needs to be the new minimum, including days with hill/speed work. got fired up by adarq's 5k PR and now i really want the damn 19:xx. mileage is the key and i'm not getting enough.

seems like a surprisingly high number of races include some kind of logistical clusterfuck. i don't get it, as a race organizer you have one job: make a course that people can run along for a period of time. how hard can that be? especially if it's not the first time you've organized a particular event.

- run 11.17 km in 1:03:50
first 5.3 with gf, so very slow (~6:15-6:20 pace), then peeled off and kept going at ~5:10 pace. distance PR, i think. definitely duration PR, first time running for longer than one hour.

- stretch

meant to run yesterday but had evening plans and lots of work to do, ended up working until it was too late.

looks like you overcompensated a bit and now you're too bent over to get any push.

props for making it to the track in those conditions. looks nasty.
