(rest day)

Today I have been shafted. It was all I could do to stay awake and watch the awesome day at the Olympics.

Long run 3:06:38 [4] 22.0 mi (8:29 / mi)
ahr:169 max:180 shoes: Blue Saucony Grid

Had a dreadful night's sleep but decided that I really really wanted to get the big one out of the way for the weekend so I could have a relaxing Sunday. So I tried the 22 miler anyway. I did it, but it was clear I was suffering and also that lying and in running late meant I hadn't eaten enough. By halfway I was just about on schedule but starting to suffer. By mile 12 it was obvious my target time was going to have to go out of the window. The biggest struggle was 13-15 miles, after a truck load of jelly babies at mile 14 I perked up a bit, but not a single step of this was easy. But I did it! These are the days that count right? Constant mental battle, which is kind of why I decided to do this stupid thing anyway.

Running 51:14 [3] 5.8 mi (8:50 / mi)
ahr:155 max:174 shoes: Blue Saucony Grid

Finally got out for a run thanks to Rob taking ages to finish his work. Went for a cruise around Costorphine and as always forgot how darned lovely it is up there. I wish I wouldn't put it off after long lab days because I always feel infinitely better having done so. Silly girl.

Cycling 44:25 [2]
ahr:113 max:153 (rest day)

Another unintended rest day, having spent 11 hours in the lab. Rubbish. This was just the usual cycling about. Had a super fun evening with Mhairi afterwards though which made it for it.

Cycling 27:21 [2]
ahr:115 max:151 shoes: Blue Saucony Grid

Cycle to work via the Postal depot to finally get my uber lock. I can now ride my bike, yey!

Cycling 18:01 [3]
ahr:119 max:153 shoes: Blue Saucony Grid

And cycle home...

Cycling 37:13 [2]
ahr:115 max:153

...only to find two hours later that my wallet was still on my desk at work, and I needed to go to the pub. So I cycled there and back again in the pissing rain to pick it up. Bah.

Circuits 43:55 [3]
ahr:97 max:156 shoes: Saucony Cohesion

Went down to Free weights to do the circuits session and had a good time watching the olympics and training with Steve and Anne and Jenny. 7.5kg on everything, unsupported dips, -30 support on the pull ups but certainly engaging my core far more on these now.

Recovery 24:19 [3] 2.8 mi (8:41 / mi)
ahr:151 max:168 shoes: Blue Saucony Grid

Slow jog into work with rucksac - could have done without the rucksac and certainly felt tougher than last week - guess that's Saturday for you! Rest for the rest of the day though...mmm.
