So, this is the 4-th week of my running this year after a long break in the summer and the first week in 6000ft altitude city Karakol, Kyrgazstan.
I set quite simple goals for this week:
- Get adjusted to the altitude
- Get used to new running conditions
- Find running routes
The goals were not hard (especially if you notice that the number 1 and 2 goals are essentially the same) and I accomplished them easily.
I controlled my heart-rate rigorously under 140 beats per minute this week. I felt like going a little faster all the time, but the heart-rate would not let me.
I did some hiking this week and some easy runs. It turned out that I have a racecourse right next to my hotel , even though as a vegan I disapprove the racecourses and its competitions, I used it as a running place for myself almost all week. There were no horse-riders there, the course must be given up.
I began feeling a lot better by the end of the week, I even did sort of a long run on Saturday
You can see my training log here: 25-1
and I continue my HATC at a beautiful and colorful city of Karakol on the 6000 ft. above the sea level
