Hi great UA Folks,
(Somehow my post didn’t publish. Maybe because of links in it. Here we go again for the third timed)
I’m coming back from an injury and i’m only allowed to run 3days a week. The rest i supplement with biking and one ME Workout and the following workout.
2-3 Times a week i do a steeper power hike up a local hill:
see next post, otherwise this will not publish.
It’s a distance of 2.5Km (1.5Miles), with around 420HM (1377.95feet) elevation gain. To minimize the pounding, I’m walking downhill, or use Chi-running downhill technique (Search YT for Danny Dreyer – Downhill Running and watch at 1:20) What do you think of this technique?
now i’m curious what you think about this session. Should i try to stay withing my Z1 for the uphill part? On some days i could push myself into Z3 because the grade is steep enough.
I started to do flat strides after those sessions to get a bit of leg turnover. I also did some repeats on the steeper parts (downhill in the TP links) to gain some more vertical. Which i will try to progress. Or is this session simply to slow/short? I think it’s pretty specific to mountain races with a lot of vert where power hiking skills are needed.
I couldn’t retest my Ant/AeT in over a year. Having a background of 12-20+H weekly running volume. My AeT = 160bpm (Z1=145) and Ant = 171bpm this was en 2019.
Sorry for the long topic. I hope someone will find the time to read it and have some hints what to implement, improve or not to do.
have a good day — mirko
