Climb 45:00 [3]

Anyway, Todays distraction from not being at BOC was CLIMBING
Something weve both wanted to give a go at for a while.
Took the easier option and went to Alien Rock 2.
Good fun despite hardly having a clue what we were doing. We both did a number of 0 grade routes and i made a few harder by making my feet follow the colour coding too. Managed one grade 3 out of the blue.
Quite tired at the end.
We decided we should enquire about some instruction.


Quads aching from yesterdays run. I cant believe it, sore legs after a short jog. I feel like a novice. What has this virus done to me?
I'm more accustomed to not even being sore after tough/long races ... this is crazy.

Still feeling quite lethargic. Needed lots of rests whilst trying to tidy the flat.
Making sure to get a half hour of gentle exercise in every day of the week past anyway. Usually it was a walk to OR from work (never both). Walked back from climbing today.

Run warm up/down (NOT British Long Champs) 32:00 [2] 3.3 mi (9:42 / mi)
ahr:145 max:156 rhr:80 slept:10.0 (sick) shoes: Asics Gel Trabuco

Put my HRM on for a while around the flat. Was reading in the high 70's to high 80's (when it usually be 50's and 60's at those activity levels) . They say that you should keep training EASY when your resting HR is 10bpm above normal, so since mine was about 20 i figured i had no option but to stick with the HRM for this little run i was determined to do.

Oh what a dreadfully slow plod it was for a run with average 70% max HR. Each of the laps of inverleith park took 11mins when my 'easy' pace would usually get me round in 9mins no probs

Flexibility 10:00 [1]

What a rubbish week!
Where did my energy go. Feeling a wee bit better now than first half of the week but jeez, even the walk from home to work (30mins or less) leaving me knackered for the whole morning.
Think i'll try to head out for something, gentle-ish over the weekend. Can at least sleep when i get back if needs be.
Trying not to think about missing the BOCs but not much success. Culbin really has to be one of the best areas in the whole country ... doh
