It started good -- with a day off on Monday :). Then intensive interval training on Tuesday (though following Jan's suggestion to increase the recovery time from 1:20 to 1:40 had a very good effect). Then on Wednesday training with SportsWorld which was supposed to be an easy run... but I didn't realize that I'll end up speeding with Ruben, making a total of 20km, 10 of which we did at a 4:40 min/km pace. So that was a tough training. On Friday I resisted the temptation of joining SportsWorld for yet another run and instead went for body pump & yoga. That was good. And I even managed to squeeze in a short run later that day.

Then there was this idea of running 10K with Michal on Sunday. To do that I decided to have a rest day on Saturday. And then Sunday was an epic battle with the rain and my body. I lost :). But the game's not over yet ;). Since that would make a lousy week with only 4 trainings and mere 50K I decided to... go to the gym (it was raining) and after doing a weight training I run an easy 9km to finish this week off. I don't think it was smart... but it felt so good ;).

During the 10K race Ronny planted a dangerous seed in my head by mentioning the 50K race in Assen. I don't think I should do that (6 weeks before the Budapest marathon), but damn if I'm not tempted to :D. Just to check the feasibility of such a feat I'm going to probe next week by putting a kilometer-reach training: 5 runs, 95K total with a 35K run on Sunday. Let's see whether I can survive that and then I'll think about Assen :)
