Running 50:00 
Can't get to streeto today so set my alarm early for training, but then the temperature said 33 degrees at 7am and I thought bit of extra time in bed and then a run on the treadmill was even more appealing than that. 15min jog, 20min tempo at a bit of an easier pace, and then another 15min jog. Felt long at times but I was right next to the fan so i'm not complaining.
Strength + Conditioning 30:00 
Couldn't not use the trx bands while I was there so I fit in a small strength session too.
Had a shocker of a headache yesterday and today and i'm worried i'm a little sniffly from not getting enough sleep. Struggling to get to sleep at night because its so warm and then i'm up early to try and run before the worst of it. Will try to have a nap today i think, but i'm yet to decide whether to do that in the pool or in the fridge...
Running warm up/down 38:50 
20min warm up and a lap of the lake to warm down
Running intervals 12:00 
Same as last week but a whole lot easier when it wasn't 40 degrees. 3*3/1. Didn't do any drills in my warm up so my legs didn't know how to move fast for the first one. But I felt good for the other two, and that doesn't always happen so I'm happy!
Easy week this week. And the first day of my internship today! Really enjoyed it, although I was itching to get out and do something after sitting all day so I walked to get the groceries with mum.
Running long 1:42:31 
At Glenrock with the company of mum for the first 40mins or so. Cloud cover meant it was much nicer running conditions today but still super humid. A bit of awkward toing and froing with some mountain bikers on some of the single tracks, one poor lady in particular screamed her whole way down one of the hills before letting me go past. A good few minutes faster on the second loop but I was pretty done at the end.
Running tempo 54:00 
Realised at about 11 last night that I didn't actually have a way of getting to parkrun so I decided i'd do a run with 2 x 10min tempos in the middle. I find these tough anyway let alone after a 30 degree night which meant a poor sleep and that the whole of the Hunter was already like a sauna at 8am. Didn't feel particularly fast but pleased I managed to work this hard when the air was pretty tough to breathe in.
Running 26:00 
So short but it was so hot. And a tad uncomfortable running after yesterdays fall.
Strength + Conditioning 35:00 
A bit of everything
Also realised last night I can do a chin up. Proud.
Running warm up/down 17:00 
Some drills too.
Running hills 15:48 
Legs felt so heavy and tired in the warm up but pleasingly ok on the hills. 8x1min, was getting good distance from the last time I did hills there from memory, and they were consistent. Had a big stack on the downhill before the last rep though, legs were a little too floppy I guess. Pretty lucky I didn't land on a big rock!
Running warm up/down 16:00 
Strength + Conditioning 4:00 
Checking I still have at least one stomach muscle.
