11 AM

Running 1:42:40 [2] 24.01 km (4:17 / km) +155m 4:09 / km
shoes: Saucon Triumph ISO 5 - women’s

Long bosh down Pencaitland railway with Finn. Not feeling too bad overall. Blizzard conditions made things tough but weirdly enjoyable. First time running here, good place for a long run. Only downside is would definitely get boring after a while.

With Stansfield. Tough one and some of the paces a bit slower than what I would have wanted, but very windy and sitting on the front for all of the reps (apart from last 400 & 200 where Stansfield put it in and I got shot by the lactic sniper). Things really started to fall apart at the second 800, went through 400 in 67, then closed the second 400 in 73 lol. Not terrible though, still some solid work. Think just been feeling a bit off this week because work is stressing me out and therefore not getting as much sleep as needed. Probably averaging about 5-6 hours a night this week which isn't really enough to perform well in these sessions.

Still, not feeling completely run down, just a little bit sub-par. Will take long runs and Tuesday sessions a bit more chill then I have been recently, then hopefully I can nail down some proper quality on these Saturday track sessions in the future. No races coming up, just need to focus on getting this degree done whilst maintaining a solid level of fitness.

Running 38:18 [2] 8.0 km (4:47 / km) +123m 4:27 / km

Easy seat lap with Fred, Tom and Max. Felt pretty spangled from S&C yesterday. Bumped into Felly which was a lovely surprise.

Running 37:21 [2] 8.3 km (4:30 / km) +67m 4:20 / km
shoes: Saucon Triumph ISO 5 - women’s

Easy Duddingston loop with Max. Slept badly last night but felt overall decent on this.
4 PM

Running 50:09 [2] 10.61 km (4:44 / km) +92m 4:32 / km
shoes: Saucon Triumph ISO 5 - women’s

Evening 50’ with 4x30’’ hill strides up quartermile. Standard Thursday afternoon feels, but had some productive gender equality in sport chats with Max, Leon and Finn which spiced things up.
5 PM

Gym 25:00 [0]

Post-run s&c. Need to do more of this. Body not used to squatting so popped my arse muscle half way through. A bitter DNF but will come back fighting next time.

Wednesday Feb 3 #

9 AM

Running 1:20:39 [2] 16.67 km (4:50 / km) +312m 4:25 / km
shoes: Hoka Speedgoat - original 100k

Nice bit of Morton slip n slide with Finn, Max and Fred. Not been out here for a while and enjoyed the muddy conditions. GPS giving me an extra couple of hundred meters over the lads today, got to take these small wins.

Tuesday Feb 2 #

11 AM

Running 45:00 [4] 13.57 km (3:19 / km)
shoes: Nike zoom fly 3

45’ Threshold: 3x12’ [3’ float]

Not having the best of days. Breathing felt rough from the off and legs felt a bit stale. Almost sacked it off after the first rep (3:11/km) but decided to just drop the effort and forget about the pace. Happy that I finished this, 12min reps are definitely more of a mental grind than 4s and 8s. Paces on the last two reps weren’t particularly good (3:17/18/km) but wind did progressively pick up throughout the session. All solid work, hopefully will feel better on the next one.

Running 10:07 [2] 2.2 km (4:36 / km)
shoes: Saucon Triumph ISO 5 - women’s

Up.

Running 12:10 [2] 2.34 km (5:12 / km)
