10 AM

Trail run (2 hours easy) 2:00:00 [2] 22.06 km (5:26 / km) +579m 4:49 / km
shoes: Sense Ride

Joined Craig Roberts for his Sunday run for the first hour and had a good catch up with him he's looking at going to Italy for the world masters mountain champs again and wondered if you were going as well.

Went through the woods up the steep part of the golf course up Cunswick then over Scout Scar down and up Nicks hill then went on my own for loop on the far side and back home a similar way.

Felt pretty rough today despite taking it very very slowly for the first hour, legs very much lacking their usual bounce and it might take a while to get used to the uneven terrain again!

slept:8.0 shoes: Nike zoom fly

20' easy round Bangor to get to the hill coming up from the pier.
Felt pretty good. I was taking just over two minutes to jog back down and just under a minute to do the efforts, then took 3 minutes between the last three efforts which were getting quite a bit harder towards the top. But I felt like I was able to move pretty well. Slightly windy but managed to avoid the rain which was good. Quite tiring jogging back up to house afterwards but still feeling fairly good.

Laps of the field, first 30' done on really nice ground but it started hailing for the last 20' and the ground started to get a bit churned up. Felt like I was moving pretty well, never really getting out of breath some good quality running.
Also pretty much finished first piece of coursework so one down 5 more to go!
