Saturday Aug 10 #

7 PM

Running 55:00 [3] 11.8 km (4:40 / km) +40m 4:35 / km
shoes: Asics Gel-Exalt 5


In principle the last of the 5 minutes every second day thing, though a spin tomorrow and roughly an hour on Monday seems a decent plan anyway.

Knees still niggly, which is beginning to be a bit alarming. Going to keep it careful for another week.

9 PM

Climbing 1:00:00 [3]

Trekked into London with Sam for some fancy bouldering. Quality stuff but think I might stick to Cambridge Wall for convenience

Thursday Aug 8 #

7 PM

Running 50:00 [3] 10.7 km (4:40 / km)
shoes: Asics Gel-Exalt 5

Lovely 50 round grantchester

Wednesday Aug 7 #

6 PM

Cycling 30:00 [3]

Boring spin in the gym

Tuesday Aug 6 #

5 PM

Running 37:30 [3] 8.2 km (4:34 / km) +40m 4:28 / km
shoes: Asics Gel-Exalt 5

Feels fab to be running a genuine full route again, even if it is only Fen Ditton. Pushed the pace a bit more than necessary, and niggles still present especially in knees, worth monitoring but that's par for the course when coming back to running.

Spin bike session tomorrow doesn't fill me with excitement, but it's gotta be done.

Monday Aug 5 #

6 PM

(rest day)

Planning a route to stations for puncture-avoidance doesn't work when you puncture before getting out of town. A
snapped tyre lever the latest casualty in my complete inability to repair bikes. No training today except a 45min huffy walk back from Cambridge outskirts

Sunday Aug 4 #


Plan for this week is 35 today, 40 on Tuesday, 45 Thursday and 50 on Saturday. That should come out to around 40km, which isn't that far off a training week, especially once you throw in some cross-training on the in-between days.

If the Saturday run is niggle-free, then I'll treat next week as 'normal training' - keeping the mileage low, but quitting this nasty solo-run game, and if I'm really feeling up for it maybe a half session.
3 PM

Running 35:00 [2] 7.1 km (4:56 / km) +30m 4:50 / km
shoes: Asics Gel-Exalt 5

Almost a full Fen Ditton!

Not saying much, but I'll plod on in the brutal Cambridge heat (maybe not wearing a jacket to run would help).
