Sunday Sep 22 #

11 AM

Running 29:12 intensity: (10:00 @1) + (14:00 @2) + (5:12 @3) 4.57 km (6:24 / km) +148m 5:30 / km

A little jog from the SOL assembly up onto the edge of the Pentlands and back. Knee pretty decent apart from on the descents as expected so walked a couple bits.
8 PM


Did some yoga, and got a nasty shock as to how tight and stiff I was all through the hips and glutes, I can barely sit cross legged properly on the floor.

I need to focus on this sort of stuff over the next few weeks, so that over winter I'm not trying to ram a V12 into a 2003 Ford Ka. Because something will break.

10 AM


Good improvement from the knee this morning.
3 PM

Running 14:20 [2] 2.67 km (5:21 / km) +17m 5:11 / km
ahr:133 max:154

Missed my chance for swimming and the balmy conditions meant I couldn't turn down a little jog since the knee was feeling a bit better. It was noticeable but not painful apart from a few steps. It was nice to run and hopefully it's just enough to keep the rest of my legs vaguely used to running.

Friday Sep 20 #

5 PM

Swimming 49:00 [2] 2.0 km (24:30 / km)

Plus a sauna afterwards as well. Annoyingly not much improvement from the knee during the day but it did feel significantly better after the swim, very sad not to run on a day like today though. Ah well, it can serve as a little end of season break and as much as it would be nice to be in good shape for cross countries and stuff, it doesn't need to be a priority.

S+C 10:00 [1]

Core. A struggle tonight

5 PM

(rest day)

Went out the door to go for a jog but knee not happy so came straight back in. Hmm, hopefully a day off will let it settle.
10 PM

S+C 10:00 [1]

Core. And another hefty stretch and roll

Wednesday Sep 18 #

9 AM

Swimming 30:00 [2] 1.3 km (23:05 / km)

With Spud and Felix, had brief stops every 10 lengths, felt pretty good.
2 PM

Running 1:05:01 intensity: (7:00 @1) + (13:00 @2) + (35:01 @3) + (10:00 @4) 11.28 km (5:46 / km) +313m 5:04 / km

EUOC seat, first of the year. L knee (patella) getting increasingly sore towards the end, I know it's been a few months since I've been on the seat but wasn't expecting it to be quite such a shock to the quads/knees. L behind the knee tendon popping around uncomfortably too but that was fairly constant and fine on climbs. Anyway, enough moaning, conditions were good, company was excellent and achilles/calf was fine too.
10 PM

S+C 10:00 [1]

Core. Big stretch and roll too.

Tuesday Sep 17 #

5 PM

Running 48:34 intensity: (10:00 @1) + (28:00 @2) + (10:34 @3) 9.63 km (5:03 / km) +132m 4:43 / km

Down to KF with the gang but skipped the intervals for an easy seat lap with Ali, Tim and Finn. Feeling a bit better than yesterday but still a little tired, niggle behind L knee but achilles a bit better. No rush at the moment though so I'll easy run until I feel ready to run hard again.
9 PM

S+C 10:00 [1]


Monday Sep 16 #

5 PM

Running 31:39 intensity: (18:00 @1) + (13:39 @2) 5.88 km (5:23 / km) +26m 5:16 / km

Well after waking up at effectively about 3:30am in Helsinki airport, travelling back and going straight out to lectures, my legs felt as horrible as expected. Niggles everywhere, none particularly worrying apart from a slightly stiff L achilles, but L calf feeling tight and weak too so that explains that. Anyway, I was very happy to jog along at proper recovery pace and wouldn't have wanted to go much faster.
