Sunday Feb 21 #

7 AM

Road Running 8:58 [2] 1.09 mi (8:14 / mi) +10m 8:00 / mi

Warm up jog with Hanna, quick run to give Tracey a jacket, plus strides

Road Running 15:20 [2] 2.0 mi (7:40 / mi) +20m 7:26 / mi

SA virtual 2 mile challenge with Hanna. More or less three laps of the industrial estate plus a bit extra at start and finish. Solid enough pacing though Hanna certainly found it tough. Think she's not been able to train so much recently due to the conditions plus lack of a decent weekend hike means a bit less fitness. Still a decent pace though. A bit breezy in places.
8 AM

Road Running 4:24 [3] 0.61 mi (7:13 / mi) +20m 6:33 / mi

Short re-warm up plus some strides. Did start out in only worn once NB1400 racing flats but they just feel garbage, so returned to the house for NB1080 trainers. Can see me investing in some kind of cheat shoe racer at some point as really need a more cushioned springy racer for my old legs!

Road Running 30:02 [5] 5.0 mi (6:00 / mi) +30m 5:54 / mi
ahr:157 max:167

SA virtual 5 miles - Did 4 laps of Industrial estate/Mill Road/Justinhaugh loop. Nice bright morning and cool. Would have been perfect apart from the brisk southerly wind, which was quite a tough headwind on Mill Road. Set out at a fairly strong pace, and would be fair to say that it was pretty hard work in the second half. Mike splits were 5.52, 5.58, 5.58, 6.12, 6.02 which I'll happily take. Pretty pleased with time as wasn't sure I'd get that near 30mins given the half marathon time and pace of recent reps. NB1080s not bad for speedier runs given they are trainers rather than racers. Maybe a bit soft but at least that prevents the legs getting so battered.

Road Running 6:37 [3] 0.92 mi (7:11 / mi) +10m 6:57 / mi

Lap of industrial estate then back home. Knackered.

Road Running 46:06 [3] 6.06 mi (7:36 / mi) +130m 7:08 / mi

Steady run his Parkhead, lower farm road, bit of Fisher's Brae and back via Parkhead. Little pick up towards the end.

Friday Feb 19 #

(rest day)

Tracey not feeling well post vaccine so just went out a walk with Hanna. Minging weather anyhow.

Thursday Feb 18 #


In better news, Tracey finally got the vaccine today. 11 months of very strict isolation has been worth it but not going to let our guard down for a good while yet.
7 AM

Road Running 55:36 [3] 7.2 mi (7:43 / mi) +230m 7:02 / mi

Steady from home up Fisher's Brae, over Airngarth Hill, Grange climb and back via the top road and Fisher's Brae descent. Good route option. Very windy but relatively mild.

7 AM

Road Running 19:25 [3] 2.53 mi (7:40 / mi) +60m 7:09 / mi

Warm up via Parkhead plus 6 strides

Road Running intervals 24:07 [5] 4.0 mi (6:02 / mi) +60m 5:46 / mi

Session on the lower farm road - 8min (90s), 4 x 2min (60s), 8min
Did out & back for the 8s. Pretty windy from the SSW and mild. Ran OK, not feeling that fit, but lack of fast running recently due to snow & ice. 6.08min/mile on the 8mins and low 5.50min/mile on the 2mins.

Road Running 8:17 [3] 1.12 mi (7:24 / mi) +10m 7:12 / mi

Run home via lower Fisher's Brae

Tuesday Feb 16 #

Road Running 50:00 [2] 6.36 mi (7:52 / mi) +140m 7:22 / mi

Steady run out to Parkhead, out & back to the puddle on the farm road, Parkhead, then home. Fairly easy effort. First run of the year in shorts. Mild and breezy.

Monday Feb 15 #

7 AM

Trail Running 51:37 [2] 6.26 mi (8:15 / mi) +180m 7:34 / mi

Headed up Fisher's Brae then along top road to the golf course, lap of the top, then back again. Still some ice about but not too bad. Snow disappearing fast from the golf course. Took it fairly easy.
