Andi, glad to hear you are back out and about! The race I'm running in October is flat so not too worried about hills (but still get them as hard to find flat stretches around here). But feels like a luxury not to have to worry about them. I bet you'll show up and have a good race.
Nayan, very nice progressive run from you. And I like that link to the garmin readout, which is easier than trying to screen shot my sportstrack probably. I think you are certainly in shape for your time goal. How did the pacing on the last 6 miles feel?
Iower, nice couple of efforts last week. Sounds like a nice time. I have no idea about the LT testing as I've never actually done the test (seems too tiring to contemplate)
So last week was 60M. Got in 2 subLTs (10M at effort each) and a 20M LR. First subLT really felt good coming off a recovery week. Very little HR drift at all and pace was about 7:0X/m. Second one was faster at 6:55 m/m. The HR did drift a bit in the final 3 miles (and I felt tired in these miles) but ave was 80%. Sunday's LR was 8:08 m/m aveHR 68%. Again, felt really good for 16, really tired for final 4. It's certainly hard to do these weeks featuring 2 subLTs (at least for me). My time were better late in the week as we finally had some cool temps.
Debating (sorry Andi!) doing a subLT in the Cliftons tomorrow. Or perhaps I should be not doing a subLT as legs were pretty trashed Sunday. Game time decision...
