while knowing that it basically depends on which kind/type of week and the whole training program in general, I have this simple question.
what about introducing an uphill WO the day just before an easy/aerobic (Z1) but Long key run?
the workout I’m talking about would be a Z3 uphill ME uphill reps which will take more or less 1h30m in total (warm up / cool down included). the elevation gain for this wo would be about 19% of the weekly total D+.
then, the day after I’m planning an Z1 long run with a lot of elevation gain, about 45-50% of the totaly weekly D+.
the reasons I’m are planning this are the following:
– on saturday morning I have more time to spend and the possibility to do the WO with fresh legs and MIND (no worries about being late at work etc..)
– the idea would also be to do a Long run on sunday with quite “tired” legs from the day before in order to simulate some kind of backtoback days and be physically/mentally trained for my next ultra race (60/3000d+).
is this a good idea?
do I have to avoid this?
