90 minutes Specific Endurance 1:30:50 [3] 7.36 mi (12:21 / mi) +181m 11:28 / mi
slept:10.0 shoes: Inov-8 X-Talons 212

90 minutes Specific Endurance

Did this on trails around The Burntwood (a set of woods close to where I live).

It was misty, cold and drizzly during the run. I ran at my ultra pace and used trail running poles to power walk up any hills.

My left hamstring is fine so I'll assume it has recovered.

1 PM

Nordic Walking 30:01 [2] 1.86 mi (16:09 / mi) +47m 14:58 / mi
slept:10.0 shoes: Inov-8 X-Talons 212

Followed the run session by 30 minutes Nordic Walking.

(I also did several minutes warm up walking before the endurance run).

So, around 8 miles for session one and nearly 2 miles for this session.

60 Easy with Speed Variations 1:01:42 [3] 5.75 mi (10:44 / mi) +20m 10:37 / mi
slept:6.0 shoes: Inov-8 Trail Talon 275

The insufficient sleep is due to having to take my dog to the vets this morning. We had a situation with him last night - he collapsed and I rang the emergency vet - and was advised to bring him in the following day. Our vet opens at 8.30am which isn't my usual getting up time :)

So, 6 hours sleep instead of 8 or 9. Not great but I'll make it up tonight.

I decided to blast the cobwebs away with 60 minutes Easy and Speed Variations along the canal at Stone. I did 15 minutes easy running then 8 x 30 second sprints with 3 minute recoveries in between. Then 10 to 15 minutes easy running again followed a cool down (regeneration pace).

7 PM

Strength & Conditioning 1:00:00 [2]
slept:6.0

Did lots of stretching, flexibility/mobility work and core strength.

Did an easy paced 5.3 mile run with two club mates around Newcastle to test out my hamstring.

Road Cycling 2:20:00 [3] 30.0 mi (4:40 / mi)

I did around 30 to 32 miles road cycling as cross training.

Left knee/hamstring seems to have settled down so I will resume running tomorrow. I am hoping it was only a minor pull/strain.
