Sunday Mar 3 #

9 AM

Running 1:38:00 intensity: (11:26 @1) + (1:03:32 @2) + (23:02 @3) 21.46 km (4:34 / km) +91m 4:28 / km
ahr:125 max:148 shoes: Green Peg 1

Long run with the hawks. Nice to get back with the group. Hide tailwind on the way out was not appreciated on the last 6 miles. Achilles fine, intermittent 0-2. The sought ache after has been the same for the last few days, 1-2. Not going to increase volume too much next week and am going to try a couple of shorter bouts of hard running instead of one bigger interval session like this week. I think that was too much and put me back a bit.
5 PM

Cycling 1:00:00 intensity: (46:03 @1) + (13:07 @2) + (50 @3)
ahr:110 max:140

More athletics. Enjoying having the turbo trainer out actually. Might keep it out even when the Achilles gets better. I feel quite good after these low intensity spins.

Running 1:00:15 intensity: (3:33 @1) + (42:38 @2) + (14:04 @3) 13.55 km (4:27 / km) +86m 4:19 / km
ahr:129 max:144 shoes: Green Peg 1

Dropped Anwen off and went out for an easy hour in the cycle path. Did quite a lot of walking in the evening yesterday so my Achilles had started nagging a bit again, 1-2, but this was fine. No pain for 90%, just a dull 1/10 for a few minutes at around 40 minutes. Went for a walk after and it was ok as well..
5 PM

Running 42:03 intensity: (6:29 @1) + (34:46 @2) + (48 @3) 8.83 km (4:46 / km) +104m 4:30 / km
ahr:121 max:136 shoes: Green Peg 2

Pretty much the same as this morning - a couple of times when it nagged a little bit, but never very much out for very long..

Cycling 1:00:00 intensity: (55:37 @1) + (4:23 @2)

ahr:129 max:150 shoes: Green Peg 1

Love that runs now get synced automatically to Attackpoint from Garmin Connect.

After a bit of soreness the last couple of days, mostly in the foot/calf and not on the Achilles, I was starting to wonder whether I was doing too much. This run was pretty good though, some intermittent grumblings, 1-3, but long periods with nothing at all. I guess that I might be still recovering from Tuesday, which was a lot of fast running compared to the last few weeks.

Running 56:20 intensity: (22:46 @1) + (33:34 @2) 12.05 km (4:40 / km) +24m 4:38 / km
ahr:115 max:128 shoes: Green Peg 1

Kept it easy and flat today. Left lower calf/plantar a bit tight, which made the Achilles nag at times. 1-3, with a bit of 4 at around 6 km - eased off after a bit of a stretch. I remember that I stopped wearing my 'supportive' work shoes because they used to make my plantar sore, so maybe that is part of the issue - they seemed to help support the Achilles but no good for plantar. Also, two big days before this so I think I'll be ok as long as it isn't the same or worse tomorrow.

ahr:125 max:137 shoes: Green Peg 2

Run across to Tentsmuir; a bit further than I had thought. No Achilles pain but lots of aches after yesterday: 0.

Orienteering 39:14 intensity: (5:49 @1) + (30:44 @2) + (2:41 @3) 5.38 km (7:18 / km) +2m 7:17 / km
ahr:123 max:142 shoes: Green Peg 2

Testing out some things for Scottish Spring. Left calf getting a bit tight towards the end.

Running 45:05 intensity: (2:09 @1) + (42:56 @2) 8.75 km (5:09 / km) +8m 5:08 / km
ahr:120 max:130 shoes: Green Peg 2

Left calf still a bit tight - took it slow to avoid aggravating the Achilles. No huge discomfort, 1-2, but it felt like if I were to run faster it would start to hurt quite quickly. Achilles a bit sore in the evening: 3 - need to be careful.

Nice to be back doing something a bit faster. Legs not wanting to turn over but felt aerobically ok. Pretty cooked the end. No Achilles pain during, apart from a few funny feelings the corners, but those should have been ankle/calf. 1 on the warm down until the last steep uphill where it rose to a 2-3. Went away again once home though - hopefully feels good tomorrow.

Achilles a little more achy up the steep hill home, but still only a 1-2.

ahr:115 max:129 shoes: Green Peg 1

Achilles a bit sore when I got up during the night to got to the loo: 2-3, but didn't feel anything on the slow jog down to the gym. Lower left calf has been a bit tight the last few days, so I probably need to get on top of that.
12 PM

Strength and Conditioning 5:00 [1]

Did my three Achilles tests at lunchtime (barefoot):

25 single leg calf raises - both calf's feeling the lactate burn by the end, right one maybe a bit better than the left but not much in it.
3 x 60 double leg bounds - no pain or discomfort at all, a little bit of trouble staying on the same spot.
3 x 30 single leg bounds - same as double leg bounds.

No pain from the Achilles during any of the tests. A couple of low rumbles after (0-1) but these did not last long. No discomfort in the afternoon after the tests.
6 PM

Cycling 1:10:00 intensity: (1:09:53 @1) + (7 @2)
ahr:92 max:116

Having a day off running to give the Achilles space, plan is to run every day for the rest of the week - hopefully including a couple of harder efforts and longer runs.
