Long run 2:28:04 [4] 17.3 mi (8:34 / mi)
ahr:176 max:186 shoes: Blue Saucony Grid

What a miserable day! Set out to do 18 miles, but was prevented at the end by the paths around being uber steep mud fests. Until then run was going really well, much tougher route than the canal with gradual incline for 5 miles from mile 11-16 - really hard work! Hamstrings tightening by the end, and legs stiff at the start from the lumping stuff around yesterday. Good session to kick myself back into motivation! Rob is away for a fortnight so I'm going to get everything back on track!

Tempo run 23:41 [4] 3.49 mi (6:47 / mi)
ahr:176 max:194 shoes: Blue Saucony Grid

Down to Leith to pick up the removal van - Rob cycled and I ran and tried to keep up. Good way to get me back in, a lot of downhill but a couple of tough climbs too. A few stops for road crossings - should have been a bit quicker!

Strength 30:18 [3]
ahr:148 max:178 shoes: Blue Saucony Grid

Attack point police time! Moving in Edinburgh is not easy, and Rob's flat was top floor. This was loading the van - half an hour of walking down three flights of stairs carrying really heavy boxes, then sprinting back up again to pick up the next one. Heart rate stayed remarkably high! So this was the way down.

Strength 22:52 [3]
ahr:149 max:171 shoes: Blue Saucony Grid

And back up three more flights of stairs to the new flat. Actually easier than down as less control, but we only had half an hour on the parking ticket so it was a bit of a sprint. The pain in my legs all evening makes me feel somewhat justified!

Cycling 45:00 [3]

Just the cycle to work and then pretty much straight back again, after some guy decided to buy my car. Faffing with that all evening, no training again. I just cannot get my act together to get out of the door this week, dunno what's up with me.

Sorting out my car to be sold for most of the day, and no motivation to do anything at all again. Not good.

Cycling 40:00 [2]

Huge day on the microscopes at work today and had no inclination to do anything other than watch very good films (Complete History of My Sexual Failures) and eat sushi. So I did.
