    Ditto, good luck to those racing tomorrow and today.

    Before my run today, I watched the finish of the local 1/2 marathon
    (Rockland lake Half Marathon). It's a tough course with one big hill of
    about 90-100 meters in <1/2 mile that the course goes down then back up.
    There's a few other small hills. Winner was 1:17:50 which is very decent for
    this course. 7 people broke 1:30. There was also a 5k, won in 17+ where 13
    people broke 20:00.

    mon: 1:18 cycled easy
    tues: 0:30 walk
    wed: 0:52 ran easy
    thurs: 1:16 cycled moderate
    fri: 1:10 run with walk breaks (10 mins @ MP)
    sat: 1:10 cycled easy/moderate
    sun: 2:33 trail run/hike on difficult singletrack, cinder, some pavement -
    hilly, moderate

    goals: Escarpment trail race (30k), VT 50m
    Felt good this week backing off on the intensity and extending duration.
    Next week hoping to get in a longer hike/run on trails, maybe 4-6 hours.

    Goal sub-3:05 marathon, this coming Sunday 24th April.

    The Fri-Sun "block" last week had left me with no energy and pain in both
    ankles. So instead of 2x15' at 88% on Monday, I just did a recovery run.
    Also I dropped Tuesday's 1h15 at 75% session. Wednesday's 6x1000 at 4'15/k,
    were replaced by Monday's 2x15'.

    This weekend I went to my in-laws' second wedding (it's a long story :) so
    I dropped Saturday's run too and shortened Sunday's 2 hours down to 1h40m.
    It seemed bloody crazy to me anyway to do 2 hours, including 45' at pace,
    just one week before the race and the whole week was originally scheduled a
    lot "heavier" than any taper I ever tried.

    Started breaking in my new Asics DS Trainer X, which I'll be using for the
    race. Love the feeling of new shoes, love DS Trainers. Ankles hurt a bit
    less too.

    Target pace seems to be converging to 4'20/k (6'58/mi) so I won't be risking
    trying for 2:59:59 and maybe missing the main goal. I think ... ;-)

    Time km mi HR%av
    Mon 0:57 10 6 63 Easy at 5'37/k (9'02). Supposed to be 30' up, 10' down
    with 2x15' at 88%. No energy and ankles hurt.

    Tue 0:00 Unplanned rest. Was supposed to be 1h15 at 75%.

    Wed 1:08 14 9 78 Monday session ere. 28' up 70% 5'35/k (8'59), 7' down
    2 x 15'/5' - 4'10/k (6'42/mi) pace

    Thu 0:00 Planned rest

    Fri 1:18 16 10 77 31'/6k up av 70%. 9' 1.5k down. Windy.
    6 x 1000/200 at 85% in 4'14 downwind-4'24 upwind/1'18.

    Sat 0:00 Unplanned rest. Should have been 1h15 at 70-75%

    Sun 1:37 20 13 79 At 70% except 51' at 85% 4'22/k (7'01/mi). Supposed to
    have been 2h of which 45' at 85% but had planned to
    shorten this one anyway.
    5h 60k 37miles

    Back on the forest paths a week or two earlier than I would´ve
    expected; the spring has taken giant steps, there are tiny patches of
    snow in the gloomiest spots of spruce forests, but I saw small
    tortoiseshells, the first of the spring butteflies, on Sunday.

    The shorts will have to remain in the cupboard, though, this week the
    northern wind will take us back to Siberia, so to say.

    Next Sunday I could be running the route of the summer´s World
    Championship marathon in a race that has been set up to serve as a
    dress rehearsal for the big event in August. But I´m not that stupid
