Road/Trail mix 1:21:00 [3] 16.5 km (4:55 / km) +617m 4:08 / km
slept:9.5 shoes: Scott Kinabalu

20’ Easy + 3 x Tri circuits + 20’ Easy

The back is feeling good again after a decent nights sleep. No issues with it today.
A heatwave has hit Lochaber. 20+ degrees today! I used the same section of trail as usual, very dry underfoot which helped. Pushed hard on all 3. Tough going by the final one, probably in part due to the heat. As usual I enjoyed the descending a lot more than the ascending, felt like a good session though.

The weather was too good not to stay outside and make the most of it so did a bit of scrambling and walking in the evening. Cracking evening to be out. Plan to head over to Jura tomorrow eve.

slept:7.0 shoes: Scott Kinabalu

45’ Easy + strideouts
Easy trail run from work. Took this very easy as feeling quite tired after another day on the chainsaw. Felt some soreness in my back again too (although not as bad as Wednesday).
A few days off work over Easter now. Weather is looking cracking for Jura over the weekend too!

slept:8.0 shoes: Adidas UltraBoost

60’ Moderate

Ran from the house out along the canal and back. Moving fairly well but some stiffness in my back after a full day on the chainsaw at work. Loosened up during the run and felt better after about 30 mins.

shoes: Adidas UltraBoost

60’ Easy + hill sprints

Easy on the trails in Glen Nevis, all fairly flat again. Hill sprints at approx 30 mins on a well packed trail. Bumped into the clubs usual Tuesday night run on my way back so tagged along with them for the last 20 mins.

Monday Apr 15 #

Trail 54:12 [1] 10.0 km (5:25 / km) +107m 5:09 / km
slept:7.0 shoes: Inov8 X-Talon 210

45’ Easy + strideouts

Easy on the trails in Glen Nevis, keeping it fairly flat. Very windy in places but nice evening to be out. Got carried away on one small 200m descent chasing a strava segment... but otherwise all very comfortable and relaxed. Finished with 6x strideouts. Legs seem to be recovering well from the weekend.

Sunday Apr 14 #

Trail/ Mountain mix (Easy) 2:30:37 [2] 23.6 km (6:23 / km) +1327m 4:59 / km
slept:9.0 shoes: Salomon S-Lab Speed

2hr30’ Easy

Ran from the house before hitting the trail and onto the hill. Took in a big climb up to the summit of Carn Mor Dearg, easy going with a small bit of hiking near the top where some crazy winds made it very difficult to run. Pretty cold on the top so didn’t hang around long. Took in a quite techy descent into the coire below before getting into a good comfortable rhythm once out the wind.
The last 4k was run a bit harder than the rest. I’d arranged to be back by 2 and time was ticking so pushed on a bit.
Really enjoyable run minus the wind. Legs feeling some tiredness from yesterday on the climb but felt fine on the descent. A bit of tightness in quads but no major issues.
