Sunday Feb 4 #

2 PM

Running - trail (Specific endurance) 2:14:26 [3] 14.02 mi (9:35 / mi) +1279ft 8:50 / mi

Second long run of the weekend so fancied running somewhere different. Headed to Stormont Estate which has a 3 mile loop of good runnable trails, albeit fairly hilly with the loop being formed of one long uphill and one long downhill. Legs felt quite stiff, particularly around the groin area. It was also a very cold day so found it hard to get going and sustain any kind of pace. Stopped a bit short of the scheduled time as I had arrived back at the car park and was too cold/tired to do another loop. Nutrition/fuelling wasn’t great on this run which is probably why I felt tired at the end - had one gel and some water with electrolyte tabs. Have ordered some “maurten” to try on future long runs and possibly in the race after reading good reviews.

Good time on feet over the weekend though and feel like Saturdays run was particularly good.

Saturday Feb 3 #

10 AM

Running - trail long (Specific endurance ) 2:03:01 [2] 14.34 mi (8:35 / mi) +1135ft 7:59 / mi

2 hr specific endurance CDR. Ran in Ballyboley Forest where the trails are back in decent condition. Had last food at 9.30pm and didn’t start this run until 10am as had to wait for a babysitter. Took two bottles of water - one with a zero carb electrolyte tab and the other with a zero carb caffeine electrolyte tab. Run went well, pace felt effortless apart from the steeper hills where my breathing got a bit heavier. Didn’t feel like I hit the wall at any stage and felt like I could keep going on at that pace for a considerable time. Looking forward to tomorrow’s run.

6 PM

Running - road tempo (Tempo) 57:55 [4] 8.2 mi (7:04 / mi) +295ft 6:50 / mi

Bit of an odd one. Ran with the club although the group were only doing 6 miles. Hilly route with miles 2-6 averaging 6.45 pace. Felt good. Decided to go into the park after leaving the others back at the clubhouse to add another couple of miles. Half a mile into the park my legs became very heavy and the pace slowed considerably. Ended the run feeling pretty tired.

Treadmill (Easy) 1:00:00 [2] 7.68 mi (7:49 / mi)

60 mins easy with speed variations on the treadmill. Weather was crap again so decided to stay indoors. Felt great again tonight and felt like I could keep on running for a lot longer.

8 PM

Treadmill (Easy) 40:21 [2] 5.0 mi (8:04 / mi)

Treadmill run after getting home from London. Felt surprisingly good, legs feeling very fresh after yesterday’s rest day.
