Swimming 13:22 [2] 0.79 km (16:59 / km)

Sleep was fairly good - much better than expected. Felt sick this morning for the first time in several days. Presumably immune system was more active yesterday having essentially done some amount of exercise 3 times. (big gap in middle of cycle)

In the sea with Helen! Warmer than expected but kept it short because of cycle.

Higher volume of training than planned but the extra was commute cycling. Not entirely sure where to draw the line on what counts as training but given it's my body think I probably should log it. Saying that, if i go off how high my hr gets I should probably have logged lectures last semester and maybe should be logging walking now (think it was making a difference with immune system when I first got back to Edinburgh, not sure about now)

It's weird getting to the end of the day without having to find things to do/rest or do yoga to get through the day.

Cycled to.inverleith park and back. Feel like that's enough exercise for today so will stick to meditagion instead of yoga.

Sleep good :) snack is generally trending later which is always nice.
With Scott and Eve. Chilly so tried to keep moving as much as possible even if that meant doing v. bad bc technique or kick. Don't think it's taken as much out of me as last time.
Tailwind on the way out, headwind/some chop on the way back.

Sleep fairly good, similar feeling to yesterday.
Round the seat with Helen with a stop at Dunaspie to watch the otter.
Almost an easy run, getting closer all the time and lowest average hr so far.

Strength & Conditioning 35:00 [0]

A bit tired, did a lot yesterday (+ run was a little intense) so I expect that's why.

1k,1s going to v. slowly restart the build up. Don't think I need to worry about underdoing it much anymore :)

Sleep good, didn't get hungry till 5 :)

Starting to increase the hills so upper part of MFD. Haven't breathed that hard in a while so lots of coughing after (walked a lot but steep). Happened everytime when I started running uphills so hopefully will help clear the airways. Probably the first time legs have felt better the day after a run :)

Note

Monthly update:
Very solid month. The ups and downs seem to have stabilised and there's not such a big difference from day to day. At the start of the month things were all over the place, partly warm nights resulted in little sleep, but I think also because my immune system was starting to work better and I had to work out how to adapt. Around the 16th/17th I had a couple of days when I actually felt good which is bizarre. Since then I've been able to work out the finer details and I think I'm in a much better position than I was. Starting the immune support supplement has worked wonders and I think exercise is also playing a big role in my immune system. Obviously I still have variations every day but I haven't had a bad day for a while.

Exercise has been great. I went for 1 or 2 runs without walking last month but this month that's what I've mostly been doing and I'm now ok with it. :) Running still feels really hard and I don't expect it to get easier for a while, but it's nice to be able to go for runs at all. I have to keep reminding myself that I've only been running uphills + not having very frequent breaks for a few weeks so it's going to take time to adapt, not to mention all the tendons and ligaments that aren't used to working. It's so good to finally be able to run/walk to the top of some hills cause didn't quite get to that stage at Scolty (walked up once, run down but it ruined my legs on both the uphill and downhill and had a niggle for ages after)

Moving back to Edinburgh has been a big change. Having to look after myself again is a huge additional stressor but I seem to have managed well, certainly better than last year. Since coming back I've mostly been focusing on getting the physical right/getting used to everything I have to do, but hopefully the focus will now turn to concentration once more. It's so nice to be able to see people again, although my covid risk has increased drastically.

Running 28:05 intensity: (10 @0) + (26 @1) + (3:19 @2) + (17:33 @3) + (6:37 @4) 4.93 km (5:42 / km)
ahr:160 max:170 rhr:52

Sleep fairly standard. Intense evening (for me) so took a couple of hours for HR to get below 60. Still, really pleased I'm feeling fine now and I did sleep. Been best part of 2 years since I've been able to do anything like that.

Round the meadows with Helen. Fairly standard, HR creeping up again but probably going to happen on every flat run. Left knee feeling a tad arthritic but completely fine when running.
