Xc fartlek

Around the feilds on bobs brews pretty flat but very boggy.

Session: 8 mins, 6 mins, 4 mins, 2 mins @ 10k pace with 3 minute rolling recovery at approx 6 minute miling.

First 8 mins was at 5:15 pace with the rest at 5:05, was hard and very boggy especially the 8 minute loop but was a great session and I enjoyed it, as much as you can in mud, rain and wind.

Cool down (Easy cool down) 26:04 [3]

Easy cool down

Same as the warm up but opposite way around, felt pretty good. Hamstring was all ok and it was first xx session of the season so it's walkways tough transferring speed on xc getting used to the mud.

Felt pretty good this morning, legs felt a little tired from hills last night, but I took the first mile and a half pretty easy and then I just cruised round.

No affects on the hamstring form the hill reps, which is all good.

Decided to have a massage every two weeks with doing decent milage, prob help a lot with niggles etc.
