Another beautiful day at 3000 meters !

I had two great training sessions today at 3000 meters altitude. I was running in racing flats, and floating/striding through quite easily. I am surprised, but I can hardly feel even that kind of altitude. Frank took lactate acid tests on me also,…

and they were right below the lactate treshold like I expected. It is nice to know that you can hit that right on, even at that kind of an altitude.

Tomorrow I will just run easy to recover. I feel strong and in shape up here, but at the same time balance is important this time a year. Mistakes cannot be done in the racing season.

The world champs is only a few weeks away. I feel ready to race there, but at the same time it will be extremely hard. Kenya, Ethiopia and Marrocco all have three great athletes on the team, and then you have Algerians and ex-Marroccons (like Mouhrit). So not much room for others in a finale. But we will see. I will prepare and do my best. That is for sure.

All well from the US
