Sunday Jun 9 #


On review that's my first run over 20k since the 21st April. No wonder I'm not very good, I haven't done any running.
10 AM

Running (off-road) 1:37:07 intensity: (30 @0) + (30 @1) + (29:35 @2) + (1:06:05 @3) + (27 @4) 21.47 km (4:31 / km) +64m 4:27 / km
ahr:161 max:173 shoes: NB 860 V12 Jan24 (heavies)

First run over 20k in far far too long. Comberton with a nice group incl surprise Meiklejohn. Lower legs only unhappy on the first k, but everything else felt a bit weird all the way. Simultaneously strong in the stride but also kinda working and imagining that in about two minutes time I'd be walking it in. Luckily that never came. The fitness is slowly but surely returning - now to bin it all on some silly racing :)
2 PM

Stretching/Physio/Plyo 12:00 [3]

Full mobility set

S&C 1:20:00 [3]

Phoebe and Niamh gyming early today but with Joe and Jeremy otherwise disposed this was my only chance for company so dragged myself out. Pretty good set, got through everything I wanted except some Nordics that suffered from being right at the end.

For probably the first time in my life I think my body is substantially stronger than the mileage load I'm putting through it. That's not really a good thing, but it's definitely a thing. Good progression through this strength programme, which ended today, though I think the next set will look quite similar.

Stretching/Physio/Plyo 10:00 [3]

Some hurdles to finish. Back leg improving, at least when hurdling off the left. Off the right still needs some work, but can start to think about weight distribution and being faster coming off the landing.

For the first time today I thought about how very far away from orienteering training this is and wondered why I was doing it. The answer is because it's fun and I want to, but that might be the first step towards big comeback season.
