Warm up as per plan

Set off feeling good. Got a way from work early so was running in the daylight and the weather was really nice too. Found a nice comfortable rythym and the time seem to flyby.

Hill sprints were done in Haslam park adjacent to the canal. The first 4 felt good the last two felt poor but my form still felt good.

Last 30’ felt more fatigued than the first half of the run. Just kept my pace easy and comfortable. Found my rythym again and the felt good by the end.

60’ easy and strideouts

Warm up as per plan

Ran on the towpath tonight but headed in the opposite direction to last nights run. Set off with fresh legs and kept the pace light in order to allow the legs ample recovery. The towpath in places was a bit muddy but overall fairly dry and good underfoot. The legs remained really good throughout the run.

Strideouts felt decent and controlled moving well and the legs seem well recovered from last weekend.

ahr:133 max:158

60’ easy and strideouts

Warm up as per plan

Ran on the canal towpath tonight, was running predominately on grass and dry mud. Was really dry compared to the last few runs on the towpath and when I set off there was still day light although this faded for the 2nd half of the run. By next week should hopefully be running in daylight again. The conditions of today’s run made such a difference and feeling good. Despite the weekends run the legs didn’t feel too heavy.

The run tick by nicely was into a nice rythym and felt really nice in my stride. Feeling like my glutes are now firing. Never really fatigued through out the run and felt really enjoyable. The pace was never strenuous and felt really easy.

Concentrated on each phase of the strideouts tonibght. Strideouts felt relaxed. Felt like each one was decent and the legs were still feeling good and fresh.

Post run stretch no problems no tightness.

Sunday Mar 24 #

Running (road) 2:50:02 [3] 21.55 mi (7:53 / mi) +164m 7:42 / mi

3hour moderate.

Set off from my pearents as stayed the night at there’s so decided to use the run to run home. The legs didn’t feel fresh but was feeling ok. Had made a big effort to try and recover the best I could from yesterday’s run. After about 45’ was running into a headwind so kept the intensity at moderate and just pushed the best I could. Was glad to have some gels and dates with mr today which seemed to work well for the first two hours . However there after the legs felt smashed and regardless of what i ate they still felt heavy. but I knew to just keep going and keep the intensity at moderate. Overall much better session than yesterday. Bit tight in the legs post run but nothing unusual for a long run.
