Slept well. Needed alarm to wake up. Had forgotten about the clocks going forward so wondered for a while why I felt so tired and then realised why. No aches or pains first thing.
Had a coffee and bagel with peanut butter and jam for breakfast. Foam rolled my left butt cheek and then packed my bags and left for Box Hill.
Hadnt planned a route beforehand.
For fuel, I had 7 torq gels (30', 1hr, 1hr20', 1hr40' 2hr, 2hr20' and 2hr 40') and drank about 800ml of torq energy. Energy levels felt fine throughout and gut issues. Didnt need a piddle at the start, during or straight after the run - prehaps I hadnt drank enough?!
Left glute niggled on and off during the run. Continues to be a low level discomfort. Not sure at what point both hamstrings/ started to tire. Other than the left glute, no other niggles. Both ankles normal.
The climbs felt tough going as either much steeper or longer than I have done for several months. Felt like I was moving really slow but my pace/times were similar and in fact often quicker than when I was training on the hills frequently last year. Think my recovery after the effort of the climbs was good.
Found the descends tough going - felt a bit clumsy and apprehensive.
Straight after the run, had a protein shake and drove home. Wasnt stiff when I got home and got out of the car.
Had a snooze mid afternoon. Left glute niggling slightly. Everything else good.
