Saturday Apr 6 #

Running (trail/fell) race 4:51:34 [3] 30.77 mi (9:29 / mi) +1004m 8:36 / mi
ahr:139 max:166

Kielder 50k

Got to the start just in time with about 10' to spare. Warmed up and necked a couple of paracetamol which i wouldn't normally do but decided that if the glutei was sore then at least i would have some relief.

Set off well and the glutei had a dull soreness but certainly not painful nor tight. kept drip feeding with dates about every 15-20' was running ok and got to CP1 feeling ok. Then about 18miles in my thirst increased and i started to feel really nauseous. I couldn't eat and just wanted to down water. Got to CP2 the legs were ok but not feeling at my finest.

CP2 to the end is about 15k and the first 5k felt ok but knew i was tiring. Then at about 25miles the wheels came off. I struggled to put on foot in front of the other and its been a while since I've felt like this in a race. Theres a climb up behind kielder castle that normally i would have no problems with yet i had to give in and walk up it. then struggled to get going again into the finish. Finished not feeling great and just wanting to get home.

Should have done much better today but now it's happened i know what i need to do to rectify it. Simply include more electrolytes into my race nutrition such as a gel or include an electrolyte drink. I haven't raced in 6/12 and i think it showed today with some rookie errors and a little naivety. Learnt a lot today probably more than if id raced well.

Friday Apr 5 #

Running (trail/fell) 39:00 [3] 4.59 mi (8:30 / mi) +6m 8:28 / mi
ahr:139 max:148 slept:8.0

40' easy

Used he canal full warm up as per plan.

Glutei felt sore post physio but could move on it and better than it feeling tight. Kept the pace light but decided to skip hill sprints as i thought this may abbreviate things. Certainly need to keep on top of my post run stretching etc. In the end the legs felt ok and good to have a light run on them.

Thursday Apr 4 #

Running (trail/fell) 37:24 [3] 4.51 mi (8:18 / mi) +7m 8:15 / mi
ahr:136 max:148

40’ easy

Used the canal towpath. Much improved glute but still feels tight particularly when my foot strikes the ground. Probably felt its best for the last 10’ of the run. Hopeful it’ll be sorted by the physio. Spent the first part of the run into a headwind but helped keep the pace low. Overall despite the glute the legs felt fresh.

Tuesday Apr 2 #

Turbo session 1:00:07 [3]
ahr:103 max:116

60’ moderate swapped for 60’ bike session

Tight glute so ended up doing a bike session in the end. Was gutted not to be able to run but glad that I didn’t injure myself. Been stretching as much as I can and hopefully the glute will relax off.

Monday Apr 1 #

Turbo session 1:00:05 [3]
ahr:94 max:108

Bike 60’

Feeling good and legs feeling fresh. Kept the session light and easy.
5 PM

Strength tx 45:00 [3]


Kept to bovdy weight excersises today. Still have a tight glute but ground that the problems is a tight hip flexor stretching that seems to really help and certainly improved.

Sunday Mar 31 #

Running (trail/fell) 57:05 [3] 6.75 mi (8:27 / mi) +15m 8:24 / mi
ahr:135 max:168

Ran on the canal today. Still feeling tight in my glute today. However just kept the pace light. Struggled to get into a rythym but felt good in the legs. Not wanting to push anything ahead of next week.
