2 hr SE fasted
A bit late for me fasted but couldn't be avoided , though it would be better to risk bonking than taking the easy option and eating.
There are just some small areas of ice left now on the forest trails which are easily negotiated as it hasn't stopped raining now for nearly 2 days.
Got going pretty well and the hunger feeling left me, climbed well and relaxed with 400m of the climb in the first hour then more runnable and that felt easy enough.
From 90 minutes its all downhill and that felt good also until I got to the bottom with time to spare and short of vert so turned round to hit them both....I suddenly had the energy drain from me now and after a minute of coming to terms with that I was OK and ran in the last 15 mins.
The ache in the glute injury was noticeable though towards the end and on the dog walk afterwards .
I am not too worried but I am going back to Duncan to hopefully nip it in the bud now. Will update you any development there
road running 1:19:00  17.07 km (4:38 / km) +384m 4:10 / km

80 moderate + strides
Run home from the the car garage which is all on road and uphill apart from the last 5km so just had to go by effort - felt strong enough but had a full pack on my back too from getting changed.
Just made sense to do it as a session rather than drag the family out to collect me.
Strides were OK , nothing special after the long run uphill.
road running 1:16:00  12.5 km (6:05 / km) +177m 5:41 / km
shoes: Hoka Rocket X
Easy + strides
First KM or so the road is still covered in ice but then its mostly ok and kept it easy until the one flat part of the route about half way.
its perfect for strideouts so did them mid run and they felt good before going back , even in that time the rain had washed more ice away so the lanes will be clear by tomorrow.
trail running 2:01:00  17.0 km (7:07 / km) +654m 5:58 / km
2hr SE 600m
no blue skies this morning , very grey and wind picking up....especially above 400m.
Running was good apart from the fact it was just hard work in the snow, some had drifted meaning some slow high knees to get through so wasn't bothered about distance today
Felt tired towards the end , more an overall tiredness due to running in the snow for more than a week I think but satisfying at the same time especially without a road marathon looming now.
I should note that there is an ache in the old injury again, not much but just incase it develops.
I have been in the gym 3 x per week too, I know I should note it but it has been consistent , just sporadic when I do it.
