The best shot to close up the week (almost)
Morning intervals did not really take place. Up as planned for common training but having had a tough night w/T made me stay in bed a bit longer so chilling in the morning before long day at work. Freezing day, btw!
Well back home, the feeling was not really there to get my butt and the rest of me out in the cooooold again. But leaving E to his rehearsal was a great excuse to start my warmup from the city center before intervals. It went like on a feather. Strangely, the legs felt a bit heavy but the feet were fine. Just flying through the 3km warmup @4:44 (with a decent pulse of 158) and started a serie of 10*400m – planned between 90 and 85sec. They actually ended in this range (the reps @1:31 below are @1:30:x with x>5). All in all I saw the three reps in the middle as real fasters! 1:21, SERIOUSLY?!?!?!
|Warmup||3,01 km||14:15||4:44 min/km|
|Repetition 1||400 m||01:30||3:45 min/km|

So right after, warm shower to get some colour on my frozen toes and a gainomax before working a bit: By return of E, we just chilled out in front of tv… eating pizza and drinking Fanta exotic. Because I’m worth it! 🙂 GREAT workout although felt I could have pushed more in the beginning. The last two intervals were to the max though… Any running friend in the neighbourhood to pull me during such intervals?
A bit concerning though is the stomach cramping. Ate sushi with friend at lunch and it was good as usual. By 2:30pm cramps in stomach, stopped after eating a banana. Then fine, but by the time went back home at 5:00pm, cramps were back. Ate a bt, went running. During the run it was fine (unsure whether I could even feel pain in my stomach during such workout!!!). Cramps after the run. Now it is fine, but as said earlier… concerning. Unsure whether it is a follow up from bad evening on Tuesday, but hopefully will be disappearing before the half marathon next weekend.
Now a bit of rest and depending on the weather tomorrow an easy outing w/T maybe. Please let the sun shine!
