100 Miles in White Carpathians-The Black Knight 138km/+ 4750m

First detailed report by Tomáš Dovala :-) 

Na začiatok musím povedať, že som 100mkmk tento rok nemal vôbec vo svojom pláne pretekov a august bol plánovaný skôr ako oddychový mesiac. Popravde ma táto akcia s dlhými traťami v Malých Karpatoch nejako nezaujala , keďže je to stále a pravidelné miesto mojich tréningov a nočné štarty veľmi neobľubujem. Prvá myšlienka zúčastniť sa ho vznikla vďaka Sebimu , ktorému som sa ponúkol ako pacer. Začal som viac študovať trasy a nakoniec som neodolal a na začiatku augusta som vykonal registráciu na trasu C: The Black Knight (138 km / +4750 m). Dĺžkovo zatiaľ to najdlhšie na čo som sa prihlásil a odbehol. 


GrossGlockner UltraTrail - 50km/2.000m

GrossGlockner UltraTrail aka GGUT je najväčšie ultratrailové podujatie v Rakúsku, v tomto roku bol možný výber až zo 4 rôznych trás - 30km/1.000m, 50km/2.000m, 75km/4.000m a kráľovská 110km/6.500m (tu bola možnosť bežať to aj ako štafetu o 2 ľuďoch). Nová bola trať na 75km, ktorá sa bežala prvýkrát.

Ja som si vzhľadom k absencii dlhodobejšieho tréningu a nastaveniu mysle (bežím iba od mrku do mrku) zvolil 50-ku, to by malo byť v pohode. Ale pekne po poriadku.

At the request of comrades from yesterday's beautiful and well organized run Rocks Sulovske up and down in the Kosice Marathon decided to write a short report and on the run.

Why to run a race

Running race

In this article I would like to share with my experience, why go on cross-country race, as many of us scurry only for pleasure and race are either unable to take the plunge, or even tried.

There are several good reasons to sign up for the race.

Race training as part of the key objectives of the season

Establish key objectives (eg. I want to run under 4 hours MMM) you want to reach the nearest half a year or a year (it suits everyone else) and plan other events as part of the training process, how to work towards that goal. Divided into small, all the other races should have their meaning in preparation for the main race. At all events it is important to set the milestones of the race, for example - to run evenly throughout the race at a certain pace in a certain heart rate / pulse rate, go the first half of the race freely and then pull the switch fully to the finish or just easily a workout and enjoy beautiful track. Of course, each objective should be measurable, achievable and specific enough. Operational it must be adapted to the current conditions of the race does not make sense to run about ten winter on the border PB when half the icy routes ...


Preliminary plan of running races for the new season 2016


základom každej bežeckej sezóny a tréningového plánu je si naplánovať športový rok a hlavné ciele sezóny.

Mne už teraz v prechodnom období, keď tréningu nie je tak veľa, vŕtajú v hlave aktivity, ktoré by sme mohli spoločne absolvovať. Predbežná kostra tých väčších pretekov v roku 2016 sa začína rysovať a mohla by vyzerať asi takto:


Kosice Marathon for piece 2015

This year was my second marathon in the life of the main objective of the sports season, as I am after knee surgery in the spring of 2014, almost all did not train so the marathon served as a test, or knee can withstand such training load and the actual race in which gets the whole body properly in the body.
