4x 4min [1min float], 6x 2min [1min jog] at the reservoir.
Good session really. Less windy today, so nicer conditions and running a bit better. The 4 minuters felt good but the floats must have started to bite a bit cos the pace did slow up as the reps went on. Took 2mins jog to recover before the 2min reps, and tried to get them moving quicker. Worked pretty well. I wanted to get a decent recovery between reps so instead of just jogging between as usual, I made sure to walk at least the first 10sec post-rep to let the legs recover a bit. Pretty happy with that, quads heavy throughout but moving reasonably well. Calves have gotten used to the harder surfaces too because I didn’t notice them at all.

Hill reps - 4 x cyclist dismounts in ~3'30, and then 8x1min.
Feeling pretty rubbish on the cyclist dismounts and times slow again, but moving well enough again on the 1 minuters which always seem to suit me a bit better. Good session to get done anyway. I've had quite a few rough sessions the last couple weeks and the head has been pretty fried a lot of the time being cooped up inside. Think I might see this week through and then take an easy week next week to give the body a bit of a rest. Back to school the week after that too which is something to look forward to.

Easy morning loop with J&L, left them after Matthew Arnold for the full loop. Legs feeling good.

Went for a rogue reverse farm loop because it was clear skies and I thought I might get nicer views between the stars and the downhill run to the city, but in the end it wasn't much better. Legs a little more stale this evening.

Sunday long run with J&L, not at my most energetic after some weekend warrior work, but here we are. Went out to Bagley via the golf course and did a little extra loop in Bagley which worked reasonably well. I left the guys at Beacon junction to do a bit more. This was a struggle towards the end and I was very much wanting to be done, but we got there in the end. Legs feeling very tired now afterwards. Will likely push the next session back to Wednesday.
