Running - trail (Specific endurance ) 3:59:53 [3] 26.01 mi (9:13 / mi) +2854ft 8:21 / mi
slept:7.0 shoes: Hoka Challenger ATR 5 (blue)

Usual out and back route from portballintrae on a dull and windy morning with some drizzle. Really didn’t feel great at the beginning and was even tempted to call it quits and turn back but persevered taking it easy and things improved significantly as I went on. It was a tale of two halfs as the second half of the run was very good. Ended up with my quickest run on this route! I think some of the hill work is paying off as I felt strong on the inclines. In terms of fuel I took 4 gels, two bottles of tailwind, a packet of clif shots and a 500ml bottle of coke. Didn’t start fuelling until about an hour into the run as I had really just had breakfast. Really pleased with this run in spite of the dodgy start, particularly as it comes at the end of a 73 mile week.

Running - trail (Moderate ) 1:15:25 [3] 10.26 mi (7:21 / mi) +829ft 6:50 / mi
slept:7.0 shoes: Hoka Torrent

Moderate paced run around Ballyboley Forest. Windy but dry and cool. Not sure how to describe this as at times I felt good and other times not so good.

Running - Grass (Easy) 1:01:54 [2] 7.37 mi (8:24 / mi) +174ft 8:13 / mi
slept:7.0 shoes: Nike Pegasus Turbo 2 - black

Easy run around Mallusk playing fields. Felt pretty grim for most of this run, never really was at a point where I felt totally comfortable. Legs felt stiff at the outset despite having done the usual leg swings, lunges and calf raises before setting off.

Treadmill (Easy + hill reps) 1:13:00 [3] 8.0 mi (9:07 / mi)
slept:7.0 shoes: Nike Epic react (blue)

Same session as the last couple of weeks with the 4 x 5 mins @ 10% incline but increased speed again slightly on the hill reps. Slightly below 9m/m now.This is the best I’ve felt doing these so far and could probably have increased the pace further.

Running - road 1:02:02 [3] 7.78 mi (7:58 / mi) +224ft 7:46 / mi
slept:7.0 shoes: Nike Pegasus Turbo 2 - black

Easy road run around home. Felt a bit crap for the first couple of miles. Perhaps as it had been a busy and quite stressful day. Stopped for a toilet break and felt a lot better after, it almost seemed like I had hit a reset button just by stopping for a minute or two then getting going again. Finished feeling quite good.

Running - trail (Easy + hill reps) 1:04:55 [3] 6.46 mi (10:03 / mi) +1888ft 7:52 / mi
slept:7.0 shoes: Nike Pegasus 36 Trail

Loop of Cavehill with the 6 x 1 min hill reps in the middle. Blustery and wet tonight so not too pleasant on the exposed sections of the hill however I ran up and over from the car park and down the other side of the hill into the forest to do the hill reps which was much more sheltered. Legs felt a bit crap at the outset, the first mile or so was a steady climb, but were fine on the flat and downhills. Found the hill reps tough on what was a steep section of trail. Particularly reps 4 to 6. The last part felt fine, ie. the easy run / cooldown which itself included quite a bit more climb which I took as easy as possible.

Running - Grass (Easy) 1:00:00 [3] 7.32 mi (8:12 / mi) +182ft 8:01 / mi
slept:7.5 shoes: Hoka Torrent

Easy run around both sets of playing fields in Mallusk (joined up by a short section of road). Decent dry evening with some wind. Felt ok although a bit tired/lethargic. The grass was quite long and soggy in parts.
