7 AM

Road Bike 1:02:00 [3] 15.0 mi (4:08 / mi)

Cycle to work. Valve on front tyre failed not long after leaving the house so had to change the inner tube.
12 PM

Running 40:00 [3] 4.5 mi (8:53 / mi)
shoes: Kalenji Kiprun Trail XT6

Working at Overtoun again, so went for a run from there over to Barnhill Wood and did 4 laps of the figure of eight path. Paths now quite overgrown with quite a few low branches and debris underfoot, and a couple of rocky bits, and a few hills of varying length and gradient. Almost counts as a terrain run.
Kept the pace under control but still felt sluggish and tired.

7 PM

Running warm up/down 10:00 [3] 1.5 mi (6:40 / mi)
shoes: Mizuno Wave Connect 3

Warm up before intervals with the athletic club. Legs like lumps of wood!

Running intervals 41:00 [5] 6.0 mi (6:50 / mi)
shoes: Mizuno Wave Connect 3

Intervals with the athletic club on the trails on Linwood Moss. Session was 6 x 5mins (2mins jog recovery). Each rep started at the same place and the idea was to run the same distance each rep, then 2 mins jog back to the start. We.ve run this session before and we would hopefully see an improvement.
However I was totally gubbed and was way off the back of the group. I had no energy and my legs were very sore. Breathing was also really bad. A terrible run!

Running warm up/down 11:00 [3] 1.5 mi (7:20 / mi)
shoes: Mizuno Wave Connect 3

Lap of the Parkrun course as a cool down.

Was hoping to do a heavy week of training this week but I'm obviously very tired and run down, so instead I'll have a couple of weeks easy before the British Champs.

12 PM

Running warm up/down 15:00 [3] 1.5 mi (10:00 / mi)
shoes: VJ Supra

Easy jog to the start of SOL3 then quit a few strides to try and get the legs working 'cos they felt really heavy and sore.

Orienteering race 52:41 [5] 6.5 mi (8:06 / mi)
shoes: VJ Supra

What a difference a week makes! Struggled to get going and plodded round with heavy legs and no energy. Guess I was tired from 4 races the previous weekend, a track session on the Thursday and a brisk Parkrun on the Saturday.
Not sure I got all the right routes as I found the vegetation mapping a bit variable and chose to go round when I maybe should have gone straight and vice versa.
Only real mistake was between 11 and 12 when I seem to have crossed the ride without seeing it and ended up in the marsh below it. 1 min lost.
Beaten by Reiver but finished in amongst the W18s.

Linwood Parkrun. Still tired so a fairly steady run, although I couldn't have gone much faster! Legs still tired!

Cool down lap of the Parkrun course.

Working at Overtoun Estate this morning so went for a run through the estate on to Lang Craigs Wood and did various loops on the rough, grassy paths. Legs fairly trashed from yesterday's track session.

Warm up before intervals.

Running intervals 29:15 [5] 4.25 mi (6:53 / mi)

Track session with the athletic club at Linwood track. A windy evening which slowed things down a bit. Felt very sluggish to start with but things improved as the session went on and I was running quite well by the end.
Session was 400m (45secs) + 800m (90secs) + 1,000m (2mins) + 1,200m (2mins) + 1,000m (2mins) + 800m (90secs) + 400m. The recoveries were jogs with us covering 100m in the 45secs, 200m in the 90secs and 300m in the 2mins.

Running warm up/down 10:00 [3] 1.5 mi (6:40 / mi)

Reasonably brisk lap of the Linwood Parkrun loop.
