(rest day)

Rest day, tough week, majorly hung over and very stiff!

Ceilidh! 30:00 [3]

Not sure this strictly counts as training due to the concurrent alcohol intake but I was out of breath repeatedly so it can't be that bad! Great fun until I kicked a small child in the head :O !

Cycling 1:10:00 [4]

Hard core speed cycling round Edinburgh to get to places on time!

Orienteering 37:00 [3] **** 5.0 km (7:24 / km)
spiked:3/14c shoes: Integrators

Argh! Went to Kinnoull Hill for a bit or on map practice and was just totally knackered - could barely run and didn't hit anything bang on. Waste of time really, should have rested!

More cycling - KB - work - home.

Orienteering 1:51:57 [5]
ahr:162 max:187 shoes: Off Road Sauconys

Ran to Holyrood, did Jess's ridiculously steep and hilly course, then ran back again. Legs felt surprisingly okay but stomach was funny for the first time in ages on the way home - must have been yesterday's Thai Buffet!

Cycling 55:00 [3]

Cycling again - quads really feeling the strain now!

Circuits 1:16 [4]

Runners circuits session - definitely out of condition, it was really tough. Finished off with 15 mins on the treadmill at recovery (70%) heart rate - trying to get into these runs but I find it too difficult out on the road. Will practice on treadmill then take it out.

Cycling 1:20:00 [3]

Loads more cycling round town - the quads really starting to suffer now!

Intervals 1:16:58 [5]
ahr:157 max:200 slept:7.0 shoes: Off Road Sauconys

Intervals session with good warm up and down. Quads feeling really very sore and wasn't sure if I was going to do reps at all. So started slowly, but found I was running strongly and so upped the pace for the last couple. Felt good on the last one, wished I'd attempted a full session! 5 x 600m: 2:10 (1.28), 2:14 (1:30), 2:15 (1:14), 2:09 (1:04), 2:00. Meant to have shorter rest on last one to run with faster group but have screwed up my watch display so I don't show lap time - need to figure out how to get it back! See how the quads feel tomorrow - I doubt they're looking forward to circuits!

Cycling 55:00 [2]

Easy cycling to work, to gym and back. Took it steady all day.

Circuits 55:00 [3]
ahr:119 max:167 slept:7.0 shoes: Road Sauconys

Gym session, warm up on the cycle here, a few easy plyometrics, plenty of core work, some squats with lower weights than six months ago. Recovery 15 mins at 138 HR on the treadmill and a good stretch. Easy session, just easing back into doing hard core core stuff as haven't done it for a while.
