Running 52:30 [4] 7.0 mi (7:30 / mi)
ahr:174 max:190 shoes: Blue Saucony Grid

Was supposed to be doing 7 miles slow then 4 miles at marathon pace, but as I'd only remembered the 7 mile marker in my head and I must have been feeling good I accidentally ran the first 7 miles at marathon pace instead. Ooops. Hopefully won't suffer too much next weekend.

Recovery 32:54 [3] 4.0 mi (8:14 / mi)
ahr:174 max:180 shoes: Blue Saucony Grid

The remaining four miles back to Jen's place for lunch. Actually probably quicker than they should have been too, but I was bored and hungry.

Cycling 29:25 [2]
ahr:117 max:145 rhr:44 shoes: Blue Saucony Grid

Didn't sleep particularly well again but felt much better this morning than yesterday. Cycled into work only for my brake cables to totally go halfway there in the pissing rain, so cycled around on the flat for a bit in Stockbridge until the bike shop opened and left it with them.

Running 9:58 [3] 1.2 mi (8:18 / mi)
ahr:165 max:175 shoes: Blue Saucony Grid

And running from the bike shop to work in the totally pouring rain, in my jeans, with a really heavy rucksac, totally pissed off.

Running 42:14 [4] 5.5 mi (7:41 / mi)
ahr:172 max:191 rhr:44 shoes: Blue Saucony Grid

Fast finish run to stop myself being pissed off. It worked, and the sun even came out by the end. I wish it would stop being so stuffy though, I think that's partly why I've felt shite for the last few weeks.

Cycling 18:23 [2]
ahr:116 max:151 rhr:52 (rest day) shoes: Blue Saucony Grid

Cycle into work - slept badly, felt rubbish (clammy and headachey) and heart rate high on waking up and pottering around the house in the morning, and felt pretty shit cycling in too.

Cycling 22:18 [2]
ahr:107 max:140 shoes: Blue Saucony Grid

Cycled slowly home after an uber successful experiment for once - yey! Legs felt like lead - ate a big chilli and then had a nice long bath.

Cycling 35:00 [2]

To work and back, still feeling headachey.

Running 22:14 [3] 2.9 mi (7:40 / mi)
ahr:156 max:172 shoes: Blue Saucony Grid

Sick of feeling sore heady and fed up, I figured I might just be feeling a bit sorry for myself and a bit stressed and that might be why I felt rubbish, as my pulse is fine. So I saddled up the rucksac and ran to Cameron Toll to get my shopping, and felt totally fine, in fact much better for it. I need a holiday, clearly! Entered the Medium Thistle at the PT thanks to marathon training plans - feel like a total wimp!

And again, totally ming feeling after ten hours at the lab, so just stuck to the cycling and then went to see some wonderful music instead. Mmm.
