10 AM

Turbo Trainer 54:33 [2]

Avg cadence = 91rpm

Game of Thrones S06E05

Not a pretty morning but weather did noticeably improve (while looking out the window) while I was on the bike. If the orienteering was scheduled for lunch time rather than the morning it might have been possible, but was definitely the correct option based on the weather when I got up.

Last 10 minutes I was struggling, had been ok up until then but considered stopping! Only positive was that I didn't.

Had some time before hand so sorted out cadence sensor.

Road warm up/down 20:23 [2] 3.81 km (5:21 / km) +18m 5:14 / km
shoes: Adidas Supernova Black (2015)

Road tempo 18:24 [5] 4.88 km (3:46 / km) +38m 3:38 / km
shoes: Adidas Supernova Black (2015)

Can't say i'm too pleased with this effort today. Started probably slightly too fast this morning, but was running more on feeling rather than to a set pace.

Weather not fantastic, damp at times but dry I think for the run. Also windy, not as bad as yesterday but still a bit of a headwind at times.

3.37
3.49
3.50
3.53
3.42 (based on pace rather than time)

So pick-up for last km did have an affect.

Calf behaved itself so at least decision to run this morning worked out.

Road warm up/down 20:27 [2] 3.52 km (5:49 / km) +61m 5:21 / km
shoes: Adidas Supernova Black (2015)

Not feeling great on the way home. Energy gone.
11 PM

Note

With an orange weather warning and Storm Ewan on the way scouts orienteering I was organising in the morning has been cancelled. Appropriate replacement given the storm will be some time on the turbo trainer.

Trails/Road 42:22 [3] 9.03 km (4:42 / km) +77m 4:30 / km
shoes: Adidas Supernova Black (2015)

Windy evening, coming off the lake so toughest part were at Muckross House and on the way over to Torc.

Calf grand once warmed up. Upper body feeling the affects of yesterday though. Fine to run though but not the most comfortable of feelings.

Thinking about what to do tomorrow, was going to get on the bike but kinda tempted by parkrun, means i'm finished training by 1030. Bike based on timings would likely be indoors anyways.

Thursday Feb 23 #

5 PM

Circuits 50:44 [3]

3 Circuits with usual Core stuff in between.

Was tough going this evening. Was getting tired by the last circuit. Body survived better afterwards than last time.

Wednesday Feb 22 #

5 PM

Turbo Trainer 57:04 [2]

Game of Thrones S06E04

Hot in the back room. Legs fine though for it.

Spent time before last session messing with cadence sensor, not connecting at the moment. Sensor is picking up speed from back wheel but not pedal. Will try and realign again.
9 PM

Note

Unwrapped my Back Baller this evening and used on my calves. Typical pain from a roller, but felt good. I'm positive with regards to it helping. Although what doesn't help is when a cat lands on your hand from a height as you balance on the back baller.

5 PM

Trails 41:18 [2] 5.27 km (7:50 / km) +162m 6:47 / km
6c shoes: Inov X-Talon (Blue)

Muckross

There were 6 controls out since Sunday so offered to collect them since I was borrowing the gear for this weekend from KerryO. Original plan was to collect 4 controls, then drive up further to get the last 2. But had seen the option for getting them all at once. Before that though I did a bit of running and in between the first 3 controls and the 4th there was some more running.

Steep hill to get the 1st control. Then through the green for the next was slow going as was getting dark so not much light.

Missed the 4th control, cut in off the path too late and put down controls metres from where the control was to climb back up to miss the control again. Map said depression, control was in a depression when I found it, but smaller one than I expected.

Some nice forest running then for a bit, enough light, but descent into 6th control was rough carrying canes. Decided to climb to the track for some extra distance rather than running straight down the hill.

Calf still uncomfortable at times, but seems ok when running.

4 PM

Trails 25:44 [3] 3.18 km (8:06 / km) +41m 7:36 / km
shoes: Inov X-Talon (Blue)

Blue Pool

Easy recovery run which doubled as checking map for this weekend. Added a couple of new MTB paths and added some bends in other MTB tracks.

Thought it would be damper than it was.

Met a couple of Dalmations, don't think they appreciated me emerging from the woods onto the path.

Calf grand running, although right ankle still not liking rougher stuff without tape.
