Shin definitely not up to a WoL run so decided to head to the Pentlands and then even if I could only do a short run I'd still burn a good amount of calories with the cycle there and back. Shin was 2-3 throughout, worse on downhill. Won't run tomorrow.

So with all the rolling I seem to have shifted the shin niggle... but only to a few inches further down the shin. Happy to be able to run still but not confident to do any more than this. On the plus side I was weirdly full of energy, probably the sunshine.

Went out aiming for 20 or 25 min tempo but it felt hard and forced from the start so just did 15, and slowly at that. First 10 or so on the grass to save the shin but was slipping around and getting annoyed so hit the tarmac for the last 5 and forced the pace a bit. 3:47s avg. Legs feeling pretty bad and R shin niggle no better. Just about sums me up really, I wonder why I bother. Like I could run that fast 5 years ago. Did 4x 25s hill sprints but shin was on my mind so called it a day.
EUOC core. Well that picked me up a bit, nice to see some friendly faces. Still got absolutely destroyed by the core set.

Was tempted to take a day off but wanted to get out the flat. Add quads to the list of things that are sore. Good sore though, only worrying thing is the beginnings of a R shin niggle so will try to foam roll it into oblivion.

Decided I wasn't going to bother going to the track and hopping the fence, even though I'd probably meet no-one as opposed to the hundreds on the meadows. Settled on a meadows pyramid session with AJ. 1,2,3,4,5,4,3,2,1 (1min) 3:01, 21, 24, 32, 40, 45, 38, 33, 12
Started ok but then the paces seemed to go downhill even though I felt fairly strong. Was quite windy but was starting to think I was being mugged off by the Garmin, didn't feel slower than Friday's tempo but apparently the 5 and second 4 were. AJ bailed with stomach problems after the 2nd 4. Legs feeling incredibly sore and beaten up, calves mainly, but no specific worrying niggles.
