Road running 59:15 [3] 8.0 mi (7:24 / mi)

Too hot for me today. 8 miles at 7:30 so I was under that - but not by much. Lap of the meadows, then canal to aqueduct, then back. Waiting for this training to make me faster...

Felt soooo shite, and wanted to jack after the first 100m but stuck at if and got it done. Which is what every reps session - esp when training alone - is about for me. Not giving in to the temptation to quit. I don’t think I am the only person.

Trail running 1:17:28 [3] 10.0 mi (7:45 / mi)

Along the canal then the craiglockhart loop and home. Weary today. Legs aches. It’s hard to run hard after running hard the night before. I think I need more time between hard sessions.

Road running 40:03 [3] 5.15 mi (7:47 / mi)

Lap of Queens Drive, making an effort on the time trial. 17:44. Best 17:07 but that is a bit of an outlier. 17:44 is good.

Trail running 1:13:49 [3] 8.3 mi (8:54 / mi)

another pre-7am start. Followed Peter’s advice and headed to the countryside, and this was cracking. Armed with my phone and it’s OS app I took a long bridleway to Out Wood. Thought this would be muddy (everywhere is flooded here) but it had quite a firm surface. Which meant after about half a mile when it went uphill, the path turned into a river. Got quite close to the top of Beacon Hill but there was a bit of a creepy guy in the woods and the paths here were tediously muddy, so I turned around and headed to a permissive path. This was a lovely, quiet trip through the woods and fields, but involved crossing a stream twice that was a raging torrent, and I had a bit of a change of route due to not wanting to plough through a field of calves, and I picked up a few nettle stings. Lovely though, just lovely. Back through out wood, which had lots of permanent controls and must be pretty good for orienteering as I found it quite disorientating.

Felt really good. Might have to try morning running more often.
