Paul's migrating controls. This format is very silly :(

Travel to Wales, 1 term down, 8 to go. Aside from running average/poorly at varsity, not much to report on from the term - will be interesting to see if I've got any faster for a few strong weeks and a few very weak ones.
3 PM

Running 48:39 [2] 6.9 km (7:03 / km) +160m 6:19 / km
shoes: Asics GT-1000 5

First run up to island highpoint after arriving on/in/at Anglesey. Nice enough with some more elevation, but slow due to horrible choice of shoes and routes

9 AM

Running long 1:34:51 [4] 22.2 km (4:16 / km) +30m 4:15 / km
shoes: VJ Bold 8

Out to provide some company for Paul and Rob on their Ely run. Went out as far as Waterbeach before calling it a day, but then found out its quite easy to keep a decent pace down the towpath, so set my sights on bringing down the half-marathon PB (which, to be fair, was not exactly impressive). Annoyingly the route out to the bridge is marginally further than the way back, so a bit of faffage going around Jesus Green to make the numbers up in an act of typical garmin-pedantry.

Got the PB: 1.29.01 although mostly just for a bit of entertainment on the way back since an actually decent time was already out of reach before turning (and never the intention). Also according to garmin, my longest ever run... possible, but any sort of climb conversion would put a couple of others above it I suspect.

Goes some way towards making up for disappointment of not running yesterday (But only some)

(rest day)

Not happy about this. Really wanted to run today but not enough hours in the day - Ely run is on tomorrow to make up for lost miles though... :P (Maybe not)

3 PM

Running intervals 59:20 [4] 11.4 km (5:12 / km) +30m 5:08 / km
shoes: VJ Bold 8

Churchill session: 3 laps (~3k) tempo, the 6 x small lap (~400m)
Bit quiet without a lot of the II-IVs usuals, so trying to keep contact with the blues while at the same time taking the session a little easier. Turns out these goals are incompatible.

2 weeks of semi-injury/taper/tiredness has been really weird but with a very simple outcome of basically no training getting done, so nice to feel like winter training is back on track and no pressure to perform in anything for a few months now. (still eyeing that sub-17 parkrun by the new year though)

4 PM

Running 1:22:00 [3] 18.0 km (4:33 / km) +50m 4:30 / km
shoes: Asics GT-1000 5

Shoddy turnout from the Haries pre/post-varsity in the cold, dark and rain :(
Just me and PaulP for a longer steady than I was expecting on a new route, but very enjoyable anyway and certainly no harm in compensating for missing SLR yesterday. Ungarmined the first 3k from Emma to botanics, so a bit of guesswork - know I took it out a bit too fast though.

Very reminiscent of late dark runs in Edinburgh - to be resumed very very soon :)
