Running race (National XC Championships) 42:23 [5] 6.7 mi (6:20 / mi)
ahr:170 max:191

Really happy with today’s race. Finished 16th and was a good step up position wise from inter district championships in January. Tried to start off steady and work my way through the field which I think I managed to do. Was working my way around the course with mainly the same people and managed to pick off one or two. Was pretty worm but quite windy and exposed in places. Had a strong finish although did mean that I was struggling to keep my feet once over the finishing line and struggled with breathing towards the end and once over the line.
Splits were: 6:02, 6:12, 6:34, 6:20, 6:30, 6:23 and 4:22@6:07.

Sunday Feb 17 #

8 AM

Running long 1:42:47 [4] 14.58 mi (7:03 / mi)
ahr:169 max:206

Mixed pace long run today. Went down to the beach for the first part and then went out to B&Q at Bridge of Don to try and get some shelter from the wind as the wind was brutal down at the beach. Session was 8 easy and 6 at tempo, happy with my easy miles and they genuinely felt very comfortable and at no point was I pushing the pace with them. Once onto the 6 at tempo felt as though I was going comfortably hard and at a pace that I could maintain (upset stomach did however mean a pit stop at ASV). Once back down onto beach and out of shelter working into the wind was very hard and resulted in a 7:10 but it was all I could manage pushing into the wind. Once back on top prom managed 2 @ the tempo pace and final one was back into wind so struggle again. All in all a positive run as felt comfortable and as though there was more in the tank when working at the tempo pace just a little annoyed that wind hampered 2/6 of the tempo miles.
Splits: 7:21,7:27, 7:14,7:14, 7:25, 7:22, 7:21, 7:10, 6:24, 6:18, 7:14, 6:27, 6:25, 7:00 and cool down 0.5mile @ 7:31/mile
