Up from on the road following the gravel/lose stone path up to Drum but didn't quite make it to the Summit but it doesn't look too far off.

Laps of the field, lovely sunny day. Feeling pretty good, and moving well on strides.
Grazes noticeably better today. Shoulder, back, knuckles, hip, right knee and ankles look and feel so much better.
Right hand and left knee still look pretty gross and deep and it still hurts when they get stretched but they do look smaller than what they were.

Wednesday Mar 27 #

8 AM


Long day of guest lectures and third year presentations 8-4. Quite a sweaty nervous wait in a hot lecture room watching Welsh speaking students presentations which I couldn't make head or tale of and then mine actually went really well got the timings spot on and didn't get asked any grilling questions at the end which means I covered everything I needed to. So that was kind of the last formal assessment but now I have 5 big pieces of coursework to be submitted throughout April and the dissertation for the start of May.
4 PM

Trail run (8 x 3 min hill reps) 1:11:56 intensity: (47:56 @2) + (24:00 @5) 13.16 km (5:28 / km) +417m 4:43 / km
shoes: Salomon sense 6 SG

Session went fairly well. Left it a little late after long day but was probably the nicest part of the day. Physically fine but quite mentally drained but it was nice to get some alone time and do something that didn't take to much thinking after a fairly intense day.

Jogged down to Bangor "Mountain" and did all 8 reps up the same route. getting to same place and a little further than last time on the first few reps but legs began to crumble a bit on the last 3 reps. Took a different route down to bottom and had about 30'' walking/standing around at the bottom which I felt was very necessary. I found that I would hurt and feel heavy very early on during the effort then find a bit of rhythm and feel a bit better about things. Got the furthest up on the 4th rep and least furthest on 6th which was when it was most hard and didn't know if I wanted to finish but managed to keep some kind of pace going for the last two. I think it was a pretty good session and it felt very good to get it done.

shoes: Sense Ride

Got it done early quite a long day of lectures and practising for presentation. Further I got better I felt and went the last eight mins without realising. Grazes don't seem to impact running but knee has been a little sore after sitting down all day in lecture hall. Left glute also pretty sore.
