Running 1:20:08  9.6 mi (8:21 / mi) +180m 7:53 / mi
Time approx as kept forgetting to restart watch after crossing roads etc.
Boars Hill. Took first 20 minutes as a warm up, middle section at comfortable pace, then pushed a bit harder on the last 20 mins.
Biting wind but warm in the sun. Weather playing havoc with my thermal decisions.
Running warm up/down 18:00  2.4 km (7:30 / km)
Running hills 7:30 
Hills! for the first time in forever, in a sunny South Parks.
6 x 1.20 ish (slowest 1.23, fastest 1.18). Jog back down recovery.
Felt like a very short session but legs were satisfyingly tired on the jog back.
When the weather gets warmer will get the bus out to Shotover and make use of the steeper climbs.
Hip fine. Upper hamstring niggly.
Core Conditioning 15:00 
Running 2:18:10  16.2 mi (8:32 / mi) +160m 8:17 / mi
Post-coursework hand in celebration run.
Got off to a bad start going through Port Meadow up to Wolvercote. Hip was bugging me a lot, irritation exacerbated by strong and cold headwind and generally feeling extremely ploddy.
Slow going up round Wytham wood and past Eynsham lock. Then past Farmoor reservoir. Had never been along here before so kept having to check the map which was annoying. Also: flies. Everywhere.
Up past a farm to Cumnor. Hip had stopped hurting and sun had come out so stopped for an ice cream. Planned to go from here over Boars hill but was pushed for time so headed straight down into the valley, along the Botley road and back.
Last bit along the road felt really good: could just switch off and let the legs keep turning over, which they seemed happy to do.
Really relieved that my hip stopped hurting towards the end.
