Running warm up/down 18:14 [1] 3.8 km (4:48 / km) +50m 4:30 / km
shoes: Asics Gel-Exalt 5


Running race 34:43 [5] 9.9 km (3:30 / km) +130m 3:17 / km


Not as good as MET League last week in terms of places, mostly because Angus and Matt were a bit wiser to the threat. Sat off again, but Matt stayed with me then got just too much of a gap to close. Dropped Angus, but the boy pulled out a 'depths of hell' style kick from who-knows-where and nabbed me with 100 to go. Boo.

Decided to run in trail shoes cos barely any mud and calves tight from Tuesday. Seemed to be working til the end, and then calves felt like they would explode for about 10 mins. Yikes

Bit annoyed to have been got by Matt and Angus, but I'm in decent shape so shouldn't complain.
2 PM

CD. In pieces.

5 PM

Running 25:42 [2] 5.3 km (4:51 / km) +20m 4:46 / km
shoes: Asics Gel-Exalt 5

Very very easy round JGreen with Hamilton for a bit. Some pain in the calf but think it's okay. Another rest tomorrow before selections on Saturday. Had hoped to keep mileage up going into cuppers, but an enforced taper and easy week is no bad thing so long as this is just caution rather than subconscious acknowledgement of an injury. I really don't know.

9 AM

Squash 1:00:00 [3]

5 PM

Running 45:00 [3] 6.5 km (6:55 / km) +10m 6:52 / km
shoes: Asics Gel-Exalt 5

Hanging and mooching at Wednesday training. I planned so no-O for me

Tuesday Nov 12 #

3 PM

Running intervals 35:54 [4] 7.1 km (5:03 / km) +30m 4:57 / km

Do a track session they said, it'll be fine they said. Dropped out after second set with dodginess in the calf. Hopefully just a bit tight but can't be too careful with selection at the weekend

Sunday Nov 10 #

10 AM

Running long 1:29:16 [3] 19.8 km (4:31 / km) +110m 4:23 / km
shoes: Asics Gel-Exalt 5

Long run up to Magogs for about 20seconds then straight back. If I'd had more in the legs might have extended to check out the cuppers course properly, but legs very aware of yesterday's race and mind aware of tomorrow's deadlines.

Very content to cruise in a big pack with a manageable pace and tick off another SLR. Whisper it, but training's working - make no changes except more s+c/stretchyroll.
