90 minute tempo ride on the trainer this morning. Was going to hit all the hills in Zizkov, but decided to save my legs for tomorrow’s big event!
Ride: 15min zone 1 warmup, 1 hour zone 3 (actually, I split this in half, did half zone 2, half zone 3), 10 minut cool-down zone 1
Watched my downloaded video of the Giro D’Italia while riding – stage 2. Kept away the tedium. The first 3 or so legs of the Giro D’ITALIA were in Denmark. Really? How does that play into a tour of Italy?
Tomorrow is scheduled a long run of 2.5 hours. I looked around, and found this really cool looking small half marathon in Austria, just out of Innsbruck: http://www.runinternational.eu/2012-calendar/may/1112-6-halbmarathon-hall-wattens-2012
I checked with my coach. This looks fun, but I don’t want to blow my training before Ironman Regensburg. With the 5-6 hour drive, I will be pretty sapped by the time I get back to Prague on Sunday for my long (5 hour) bike ride.
Bill’s response – GO FOR IT! He gave me a pacing and nutrition plan for the event as well. I love these guys. So, off I go. I leave first thing tomorrow, be back as early Sunday as I can manage.
Race Entry – 20 Euro
Rental car with GPS – $125
Hotel in a top ranked (TripAdvisor) hotel – 47 Euro. Including breakfast.
So, a bit over $200 for the weekend, not including food and gas.
Seriously – we’ll see how good a 47 Euro hotel room is. I just want a dry place to sleep with no parasites. http://www.tripadvisor.com/Hotel_Review-g190444-d283959-Reviews-Gasthof_Badl-Hall_in_Tirol_Tirol_Austrian_Alps.html
