Running 49:00 [3] 9.0 mi (5:27 / mi)





Alternate direction for each rep on the track so to help with glute

Felt good today, felt rubbish on the first rep just warming up, but once I got going felt like I was coasting very relaxed and enjoyed the session.

Glute/hip was tender from physio but didn't bother me in the slightest, which is what I wanted. Stretched for a while before warm down. Cut the recoveries to 2:30 has the track was being closed early for an event .

Overall time and mileage include jog recovery between reps

Moderate running 59:05 [3] 10.0 mi (5:55 / mi)

Moderate run

Had to swap morning and night runs round today as I have the physio this afternoon and normally feel rubbish afterwards.

Felt good this morning, hip was the best its been for a few days, only really felt it on declines, but mainly pretty good.

Standard underlating route, beehive, macron, a6 to westhoughton, chew moor lane, lostock train station, Beaumont road, up the hill to chorley new road, to horwich aldi and back home.

I decided against the hill sprints this morning as a precaution so not to trigger or hurt the hip/glute in anyway.

The main thing was this morning I ran well and it felt half decent for the first time since the road relays.

Running race (Leg 1 6 stage ) 16:45 [3] 3.5 mi (4:47 / mi)

Northern 6 stage leg one

Set off and a lot of pushing and shoving, not used to hid at moment, found myself outside top 20 after first 300m
Round the track, but kept calm and worked my way to Chris after the first half mile. Get really good and pace felt easy and I felt really relaxed, after the first lap I had moved up to top 15 and again I still felt good and relaxed to opens up and close the gap to places 4-8 stayed with the pack, may a litre error towards the end as I looked at my watched and noticed the distance and thought we were doing 4 mile, the race organiser had ballsed this up, but as I hit the track for the final 300m got dropped a little bit on the sprint finish. Honestly think with a better start 4th was there for the taking, but overall with the splits and how I get was very happy.
