10 AM

Run warm up/down 22:28 [2] 4.24 km (5:18 / km) +32m 5:06 / km
ahr:167 max:181

This was grim.

Felt so grim. Didn't even want to start the session as I was jogging round and down the Holyrood Hill.

Annnnyyywayyyy wee wobble overcomed - I lined up to start. Here we here we...

Run tempo 35:04 [4] 6.92 km (5:04 / km) +30m 4:58 / km
ahr:167 max:181 slept:8.0

Session: 15" (rest 3"), 10" (rest 2"), 5" (rest 1"), 5" (rest 1")

After being fairly unsure as for how I was actually feeling regarding this session, I took the first rep of 15 minutes with caution. Careful not to get too excited, go off too fast and die a spectacular death. The loop round the fields at Holyrood is fairly hilly - some cruel inclines round the far end, however, exactly the sort of terrain I need to be training on.

Max Milarvie was there giving some cheers - greatly appreciated.

Second rep of 10 minutes was almost tougher as I knew there was still a fair way to go, but also needed to up the pace a wee bit. Hmm - the hills hurt this time.

Now for the 2 x 5 minutes - again, wasn't sure how I would feel and whether the one minute recovery would really be enough between the two for me to catch my breath and be ready to go again. Turns out it was in fact okay... better than okay and I managed to find another gear that I definitely hadn't entered into for a very very long time in the last 5 mins. I felt that I could move a bit easier and faster.

It was a shame not to be up there with the other gals, however, I am sure it will come with time. It's getting better already and I have definitely noticed or am beginning to notice a difference in how I am approaching my running at the moment. Being more relaxed and not worried about it is wonderful.

Very happy :)

Run warm up/down 21:34 [2] 3.92 km (5:30 / km) +71m 5:03 / km
ahr:158 max:175

Did 3 x 30 second strides and felt that I was moving quite well.

Bombed it back across town with Alex, AJ and Paulino. And by bombed it back I mean ran til the hill got too steep then walked - the usual.

Then finished at the treehouse for a coffee to warm up!

on the look out for bams as I bombed it round Glasgow Green this morning.

After so so so much sleep, I decided to get my recovery run done before brekkie. - yeah standard at 11am right.
