8 AM

Running - trail (Specific endurance ) 3:23:13 [3] 22.28 mi (9:07 / mi) +2825ft 8:09 / mi
slept:6.0 shoes: Hoka Challenger ATR 5 (blue)

Went to bed early (before 11pm) but didn’t sleep much as the wind and rain was noisily battering the caravan all night. Got up at 7am, had a small bowl of cereal and coffee and drove round to portballintrae. Ran the usual out and back route with the exception of a slight detour as the tide was in so I couldn’t get back along the rocks at the end of whitepark bay. Ran up the trail to the road, along the road a bit then back down to the trail. This probably added a few hundred feet of climbing so might do this again in future. Really wet and windy day, the sort of wind that makes you feel you are treading water at times but it didn’t bother me as much as it usually would. The rain was also sandblasting my face at times! Felt really good today which was particularly pleasing as this has been a higher mileage week. Fuelling went well. Drunk 2 x 500 ml bottles of water and took 9 gels. No sickness and plenty of energy throughout.

Running - trail and road (Easy) 55:39 [3] 7.04 mi (7:54 / mi) +295ft 7:36 / mi
slept:7.5 shoes: Nike Epic react (blue)

Easy run around portrush taking in a couple of miles on the beach as well as some trails. Very windy but found it refreshing. Enjoyable run and felt good, a little tired on the hills though.

slept:7.0 shoes: Nike Pegasus 36 Trail

Did the session around Cavehill as planned with 3 x 5 min hill reps. First of these felt horrendous and really slow, the next two I felt a bit stronger. Tough session.

Running - Grass (Easy) 59:19 [3] 7.05 mi (8:25 / mi) +165ft 8:14 / mi
slept:7.0 shoes: Nike Epic React (beige)

Easy run around mallusk playing fields with 6 strideouts to finish. Didn’t feel great during this, always just felt like a struggle and never seemed to get into a relaxed stride. Grass was a bit long and soggy in parts. The strideouts made me feel better.

Running - road (Easy + hill reps) 1:02:18 [3] 7.41 mi (8:24 / mi) +465ft 7:56 / mi
slept:7.0 shoes: Hoka Rincon (white/blue)

Rainy and cool evening. Felt a bit crappy during the first 20 min easy run, in stark contrast to last night. Felt much better during the 6 hill reps though and then also during the second 20 min easy run.

Running - road (Easy) 49:20 [3] 6.1 mi (8:05 / mi) +193ft 7:51 / mi
slept:6.0 shoes: Nike Epic react (blue)

Got out for a late run after getting my flight home from London. Took this one easy after last nights run and as it was late. Felt really great on this run, I can’t really remember ever feeling better during a run! It was virtually effortless. The fact that I had a sleep on the plane may have helped and also the cool temperatures and little wind. Nice feeling nonetheless.

8 PM

Running - road (Easy/tempo) 1:19:00 [3] 10.05 mi (7:52 / mi) +200ft 7:43 / mi

In London for meetings. Got checked in to the hotel then straight out for a run. Intended to run down to the river and do an out and back but the south bank was chaos and lots of people dodging so went over Westminster bridge and intended to do a loop on the quieter roads and parks before heading back the same way. Got a bit lost on the loop which led to this being a longer run than intended!! Had to ask for directions to get back in track and then, being annoyed with myself, sped up significantly for a couple of miles running at 6:30mm pace on the way back to the hotel. Had felt really good on this run before that and was settled into a comfortable easy pace from the start. The faster miles actually felt pretty good, it was nice to get it out of my system!
