Feeling very good about training at the moment - comitted to nutrition, training and spirit routine for healing - all working :D <3

10 AM

Running 30:00 [3] 5.25 km (5:43 / km) +7m 5:40 / km
ahr:172 max:187 shoes: Pink Brooks Shoes

It was planned to do my run of 60 mins today, but it was just not to be - leg very clicky/sore and Becky was tired so went with that and still so happy to do 30 mins!
I taped up my psoas and got some deep heat on it which helped. The psoas/hip just feels extremley week and sore - not painful as such - such a strange pain - need to speak to Julia about it.
Me and Becky ran this as (9 min run, 1 min walk) x 3 which is a format I really like. We ran around Oxford in the sun and i loved it depsite any pain felt <3.

Thursday Jun 20 #

(injured) (rest day)

Morning Stretch: DONE
Evening Stretch: DONE
Garmin Steps: 13000

- Feeling a lot of pain and clicking/cracking in the hip today. However, becasue this does ease and flow this suggests it is muscular and not within the joint - also I have had the surgery so a labral tear is extremley unlikely! We can overcome any worry or tension and this is a journey! <3
I am finishing this week of training and then sending an email to Julia with how I feel <3 !

7 AM

Running 1:00:00 intensity: (30:00 @3) + (30:00 @4) 11.0 km (5:27 / km) +96m 5:14 / km
ahr:162 max:190 shoes: Pink Brooks Shoes

Quite a hard run today!
I need to chill out a bit on the pace - it is exciting that speed is coming into the legs more but they are more vulnerable at speed - lets just enjoy the running and nature at the moment :)
I did a loop round Blackdown and then ran home - about 9km so had to loop another 2km around home - good to know for the future.
I did: 10 min jog, 10 x (3 min flow run, 2 min jog/walk) - I did push my body quite a lot on this and was ocassionally twingey in the high hip/groin muscles - but not too bad - did a good stretch after :)!
Excited to be making progress, but yes need to chill the pace so that I dont worry myself.
It was good to get a harder run in though as I am going to my friend Katie's for 2 days so might not be able to get sessions in <3!

Morning Stretch: DONE
Physio Treatment: DONE
Morning Movement: DONE
Evening Stretch: DONE
Garmin Steps: 9300
Feeling: Looser today! I think the background feeling of tension/stress is not helping so lets try and ease that - by being at ease! <3
12 PM

Cycling 40:00 [3] 12.7 km (3:09 / km) +119m 3:00 / km
ahr:139 max:175

This cycle was from home to Kate's:
Well this has shown me that this is not the best cycle route haha - one of the hardest hills and some really tough XC work followed by a pretty much completley downhill road stretch. But good to investigate and getting stronger on the bike - it is practice and consistency! <3
2 PM

Cycling 32:00 [3] 8.5 km (3:46 / km) +161m 3:26 / km
ahr:149 max:172

This was from Kate's to Lexie's - holy shit it was literally a gentle incline ALL. THE. WAY! My legs were dead by then end - this is why my bike ride was a lot shorter - was aiming for 2.5 hours but in the future I will just go to Richmond to do that to be honest! But a good hard workout to improve from!
3 PM

Cycling 10:00 [3] 2.25 km (4:27 / km) +41m 4:04 / km
ahr:136 max:161

Just the short section from town to home to finish off - happy with this ride - would have wanted it to be longer but lets build it up and find better places to go :)

Swimming (Open Water) 30:00 [3] 1.6 km (18:45 / km)

First time back in the open water after the race this time last week - glad to be getting in there again - I LOVE getting up early it really does just work for me - need to make sure I get enough sleep though.

You get SUCH a sweat on - but very beneficial - good to stretch out the body - feeling tight and twiney today so needed it <3. Took me a little time to clear and be mindful, so need to work on that :)
