(rest day)

And so a hungover Sunday, but totally worth it. Walked around South Shields carrying breakfast for a loooong time.

Saturday Jul 26, 2008 #

Cycling 1:00:00 [1]
shoes: Blue Saucony Grid

Lots of playing around on the beach and wandering around South Shields. Kite flying and frisbee playing and fire poi (I didn't set myself on fire!). I'm pretty sure the amount of wine drunk completely counteracts the exercise, but what an ace day.

Cycling 1:40:00 [3]
shoes: Blue Saucony Grid

Lots of madfilled cycling around town, particularly up to Colinton to help Doug run an orienteering session for about 70 international school teenagers. It was a surprising success, mostly due to a huge amount of work on Doug's behalf. Dunno if it's hayfever or not but feel sore throaty and headachey amd so decided not to run. Was exhausted by the time I finally made it home at 10ish!

Circuits 38:01 [2]
ahr:114 max:160 shoes: Blue Saucony Grid

Core circuit in the gym, 7.5kg for everything, good to see Bish back! Apparently I am looking streamlined, which is a good thing!

Cycling 13:03 [3]
ahr:133 max:156 shoes: Blue Saucony Grid

Cycled to work in a bit of a boo and went really fast.

Recovery 27:46 [3] 3.7 mi (7:30 / mi)
ahr:157 max:174 shoes: Blue Saucony Grid

Quick run mid experiment in the afternoon sunshine. Pretty warm and my heart rate wasn't really budging that much - only went over 170 going up the Steps from the Dean Path. So nice to be out in the warm though!

Wednesday Jul 23, 2008 #

Running 35:35 [3] 4.0 mi (8:54 / mi)
ahr:165 max:178 shoes: Blue Saucony Grid

Banter round Flotterstone with Mhairi pre hill race organisation malarky. Good gossip and a fair pace - so good to run with somebody at last! I am so wobbly in terrain these days!

Tuesday Jul 22, 2008 #

Warm up & strides 10:03 [2] 1.2 mi (8:23 / mi)
ahr:156 max:172 shoes: Blue Saucony Grid

Jog to the start of my fartlek session along the horrible smelly road.

Intervals 40:00 [5] 5.0 mi (8:00 / mi)
ahr:176 max:187 shoes: Blue Saucony Grid

Wasn't inspired with the old x time 1 mile ad nauseum so went for a fartlek session. Didn't allow HR to drop below 175 at all, and my god it was tough. Tackled some sizable hills in Costorphine and by the last ten minutes my legs were screaming even on the roads. Tough session, good fun!

Recovery 10:01 [2] 1.0 mi (10:01 / mi)
ahr:135 max:160 shoes: Blue Saucony Grid

Hobble back to the lab - really surprisingly tough session! Guess 20 miles in my legs is probably the reason why!

Cycling 21:30 [2]
ahr:125 max:158 shoes: Blue Saucony Grid

Cycle back to meet Rob for coffee.

(rest day)

Last night Rob decided to have a major fight in his sleep, and after being punched and kicked and woken up by him staring at the ceiling dripping with sweat, I went to sleep on the sofa! He has no memory of any of it this morning and couldn't understand why I was in the living room! As a consequence I am ridiculously tired today and feeling a little spaced - intervals will wait until tomorrow.
