Warm up & strides 15:00 [3] 1.6 km (9:22 / km)
shoes: Integrators

A very half hearted jog come walk to the start of Day 2.

Orienteering 1:13:36 [4] **** 8.0 km (9:12 / km)
ahr:170 max:183 spiked:8/13c shoes: Integrators

Day two - legs were wrecked today, a big struggle to get round! didn't enjoy the middle section where it was just a case of following the motorway bashed down in the bracken and struggling up steep hills, but the first bit (which I managed to royally cock up) and the last bit (which was fine) was really nice. I'll have a lot of work to do when I return to O in late October!

Saturday Aug 23, 2008 #

Warm up & strides 11:17 [3] 1.6 km (7:03 / km)
ahr:165 max:175 shoes: Integrators

Jog to the start of day 1 of the PT.

Orienteering 1:03:43 [4] **** 6.4 km (9:57 / km)
ahr:177 max:191 spiked:10/13c shoes: Integrators

PT Medium Thistle. Fun to be out on a map again, but ankles and knees not a fan of terrain and physically found it a struggle! Amazing views from the top, worth the slog to number 9 after all.

Running 56:11 [4] 8.0 km (7:01 / km)
ahr:159 max:183 shoes: Integrators

Was going to run round the island, then got bored of the track and decided to go back to the top to take photos. Bit of a slog but ran the whole way - fun to be in terrain but a bit scared of getting injured!

Cycling 40:00 [2]

Usual cycling.

Thursday Aug 21, 2008 #

Cycling 35:00 [2]

The usual. Hamstrings still tight and uber busy in the lab, will rest till the weekend.

Wednesday Aug 20, 2008 #

Cycling 1:00:00 [2]
shoes: Blue Saucony Grid

Cycling about in the pouring rain again.

General aerobic 10:00 [3]
ahr:169 max:175 shoes: Blue Saucony Grid

Went to do 40 mins cross country on the cross trainer but was totally knackered and hamstrings tired, so gave up after ten mins.

Tuesday Aug 19, 2008 #

Warm up & strides 11:30 [3] 1.1 mi (10:27 / mi)
ahr:136 max:160 shoes: Blue Saucony Grid

Run to the start and two sets of strides - in the second set I actually remembered how to move my legs properly fast again. That was a bit novel.

Intervals 24:48 [5] 4.0 mi (6:12 / mi)
ahr:184 max:195 shoes: Blue Saucony Grid

Today I had one of those oh no, I can't do intervals, Oh I will, actually, maybe my stomach is playing up, oh, but I really should meh kind of days . I finished all my experiments bang on 5 (success!) and made a bargain with myself that if I did 4 really good mile intervals that was a big enough session after 22 miles on Saturday. So I set out slightly dubiously and was rewarded with a really good session. Again on the cycle track so not totally flat and not 100% accurately measured, but times were:


Pretty pleased with that after being so silly all day!

Recovery 6:46 [3] 0.7 mi (9:40 / mi)
ahr:157 shoes: Blue Saucony Grid

Short jog back to the hospital - going to have a longer spin back to Rob's to try and work the legs out properly.

Cycling 26:11 [2]
ahr:124 max:162 shoes: Blue Saucony Grid

Cycle to the Dentist in Muirhouse in a monsoon. Not pleasant. Even less pleasant when the dentist did her usual out of the room in three minutes flat whilst causing as much blood to escape from your gums as possible job. I wish there were more NHS dentists in Edinburgh.

Cycling 21:08 [1]
ahr:129 max:151 shoes: Blue Saucony Grid

And a flat spin back to Rob's place, feeling much better after that. Totally whacked now, good day! Watching so much Olympics aswell as doing all my experiments is a tough call.

Monday Aug 18, 2008 #

Cycling 28:23 [2]
ahr:111 max:149 shoes: Blue Saucony Grid

Home from Rob's and then into the lab.

Cycling 16:12 [2]
ahr:132 max:167 shoes: Blue Saucony Grid

Fast paced cycle to the gym.

Circuits 22:20 [3]
ahr:114 max:150

Usual circuit session with 8kg weights. Unsupported dips, then couldn't do pull ups as the Nautilus was closed and I'm still too much of a wimp to manage these ones without support. I tried one. It looked very silly.

Recovery 21:36 [3] 3.0 mi (7:12 / mi)
ahr:156 max:176 shoes: Blue Saucony Grid

Recovery run back into the lab from home. Hamstrings a little tight and maybe a bit tight in the chest, but feeling a hell of a lot better than I thought I would after Saturday! I am certainly recovering much more quickly now.
