Sunday May 26 #

9 AM

Hill running 2:13:12 [3] 27.21 km (4:54 / km) +800m 4:16 / km

Longish run over scolty a few times and around the lower trails. Not too tired from yesterday after a good sleep. Hungry towards the end after a very light breakfast but no energy crash like yesterday!

Saturday May 25 #

7 AM

Running, mostly off road 24:00 [2] 5.21 km (4:36 / km) +50m 4:24 / km

Easy wake up route on the trails and parks around town. More bounce in the legs after less running yesterday.
2 PM

Running, mostly off road warm up/down 56:57 [2] 11.34 km (5:01 / km) +100m 4:49 / km

Warm up on the first part of the race course and the hill next to it. Cool down running from the top of Glas T back to the start. Had a massive energy crash halfway down but kept in one piece until getting back to the food. Racing in the afternoon isn’t my favourite.

Hill running race 34:15 [5] 7.15 km (4:47 / km) +670m 3:16 / km

Glas Tulaichean uphill. Another step in the right direction to becoming a mountain runner again. Was a bit unsure how hard I was running in the first part but for main the uphill I was definitely pushing myself as hard as I could. Chris Richards was with me for the first 1-2km then I pulled away on the climb to win by just under 2’. Bit of a headwind on the first half and raining throughout but better conditions than last time I raced it. ~50s slower than KJ’s record but happy with that at this stage.

Friday May 24 #

10 AM

Running, mostly off road 47:23 [2] 10.79 km (4:23 / km) +120m 4:10 / km

More running around crathes and bits on the Deeside line. A few strides mixed in towards the end. Tired from having a few busier days but legs surprisingly good.

Thursday May 23 #

8 AM

Road Running warm up/down 35:16 [2] 7.83 km (4:30 / km) +20m 4:27 / km

ASV down to the south end of beach plus a few strides. Seemed like no wind but that’s because it was behind. Wasn’t too bad though. Cool down back the same way.

Road Running intervals 37:20 [4] 10.77 km (3:28 / km) +20m 3:26 / km

4 x 2km (3’ easy) up and down the prom. Felt tired from the start (probably the early start) but then gradually better towards the end. Last three were similar pace. Happy enough with it, nothing special but hopefully in a week or two things will feel good. It’s the least stiff my legs have been recently but the most tired I’ve felt.
6 PM

Running, mostly off road 39:56 [2] 8.67 km (4:36 / km) +100m 4:21 / km

Deeside line and crathes loop. Enjoyed it and everything felt good enough.

Wednesday May 22 #

11 AM

Running, mostly off road 1:16:22 [3] 16.1 km (4:45 / km) +440m 4:10 / km

Easy/steadyish run on the Deeside line then twice up scolty and back. Felt tired in the morning but a lot better when running. Soggy trails and loads of puddles.
6 PM

Running, mostly off road 30:44 [2] 6.43 km (4:47 / km) +70m 4:32 / km

Easy loop on forest paths from home. First bit quite twisty with lots of mud and tree roots which seemed harder as the muscles took a while to loosen off. Everything good by the end though.

Tuesday May 21 #

10 AM

Running, mostly off road 1:03:59 [2] 14.12 km (4:32 / km) +180m 4:16 / km

Easy run from Aberdeen to Milltimber through Hazlehead and Countesswells. Bit tired from the last days but no muscle stiffness.
6 PM

Running, mostly off road 9:54 [3] 2.44 km (4:03 / km) +30m 3:49 / km

Strides and some hill sprints plus a bit of jogging between. Did 10-15’ of drills first.

Running, mostly off road 22:59 [2] 5.12 km (4:29 / km) +40m 4:19 / km

Easy run back home afterwards.

Monday May 20 #

10 AM

Running, mostly off road warm up/down 59:01 [2] 12.87 km (4:35 / km) +160m 4:19 / km

Over to scolty from the new house. Probably a longer way but making the most of the trails and park. Came back an even longer way going down the river until Tesco. Legs felt good warming up today, finally getting rid of the post marathon aches.

Hill running tempo 40:04 [5] 7.14 km (5:37 / km) +540m 4:04 / km

4 x scolty loops with a ~7’ uphill at a hard effort then recovering running relaxed and fairly slow down the steeper way back to the start. Finished the session on the top of the hill. Wouldn’t normally do something hard the day after a long run but it’s the best my legs have felt in weeks. Happy with how it went, I’ve ran quicker up there but as a first proper hill session it was fine.
