10 AM

Cycling long 3:20:47 [3] 76.47 km (2:38 / km) +1342m 2:25 / km

Rode from home up Redmires, across to Ringinglow, down Fiddler's, along to Hope, up Mam Tor, back to Stony Middleton via Peak Forest and Tideswell, then up Grindleford and home.

Forgot how much Mam Tor takes out of you. I was exhausted by Grindleford and barely got up it! Weather was OK, a bit of wind around and some freezing showers around the Edale / Mam Tor area. First time I've seen a "feels like" below zero.

(rest day)

Called into work unexpectedly, and had plans afterward, so no training today.

10 AM

Swimming 1:00:00 [3] 3.0 km (20:00 / km)

Swim at Ponds Forge. Drills and then a solid effort 400, 300, 200. Still slow but faster in the 25m pool (lots of wall push offs...)
5 PM

Jogging warm up/down 8:08 [3] 1.58 km (5:09 / km)

Running tempo 23:28 [4] 5.7 km (4:07 / km) +23m 4:02 / km
ahr:164 max:173

Tempo with Charlotte (more than half quite a long way behind her actually) around Attercliffe area. Started a bit too fast and decided 4.10 was a more comfortable pace.

Jogging warm up/down 18:53 [3] 3.64 km (5:11 / km) +91m 4:37 / km

9 AM

Cycling 1:42:09 [3] 37.07 km (2:45 / km) +704m 2:31 / km

Recovery ride. Not feeling good this morning at all. Considered turning around and going home after 5min, but decided to do the ride actually at recovery pace for once (i.e. as slowly as possible whilst still moving up the hills). Felt slightly better by the end, still really tired though.
9 PM


Finished work at 9.45 so didn't run. Had time to both ride and run in the morning but considering how I was feeling I'm glad I didn't.

10 AM

Swimming 1:01:00 [3] 3.0 km (20:20 / km)

Swim at Goodwin. At this point trying to teach myself to swim again! Did lots of drills and some very slow but fairly solid effort 100s and 200s.
5 PM

Jogging 21:08 [3] 4.05 km (5:13 / km) +42m 4:58 / km
ahr:140 max:164

6 PM

Running intervals 20:28 [5] 5.6 km (3:39 / km)
ahr:176 max:185

4 x 1200 off 6 minutes, 1 x 800 (I cut the last one short because I died). Thought I might be on track for a nice consistent session, went through the first 3 reps in 4.20 but the 4th was 4.26 and the last 800m was 3.01. Ah well getting there.

Jogging warm up/down 33:38 [3] 6.0 km (5:36 / km)

I wasn't completely static on the recoveries, did a 200m shuffle. Plus run home.

Monday Nov 13, 2017 #

9 AM

Cycling hills 1:11:12 [4] 24.61 km (2:54 / km) +626m 2:34 / km

4 x Rails Rd and 1 x Lodge Lane. Rails were faster than last week but Lodge hurt!
5 PM

Jogging 50:20 [1] 7.05 km (7:08 / km) +89m 6:43 / km

Social run group. A little bit less walking again. Who knows we might get under 7 minute pace soon.

12 PM

Orienteering 1:34:20 [3] 12.14 km (7:46 / km) +478m 6:30 / km
ahr:121 max:155

Sort of orienteering - putting out tapes again, this time running (mostly) and with Kyhil for company. Apologies to some people doing this event but there are certainly a few grim patches - not really avoidable unless you're always running on tracks.

Oddest part of the run was getting stopped by a man in I would guess his late 50s to educate us about "geoengineering" (read: chemtrails). I tried to cut him off early into his spiel but stating very clearly that I did NOT ascribe to conspiracy theories but he very clearly assured me that "oh no I'm not one of THOSE people". He then went on to describe how because it's Remembrance weekend there are apparently less military planes pumping barium, strontium, "aluminum" and "GMOs" into our air and "making millions" by doing it (he wasn't too clear on how this practice was going to net people said millions). One of his main arguments was that apparently jet condensation trails shouldn't "hang around" in the sky and it's "not natural". I stopped trying to argue - I was getting cold and it seemed futile - and anyone that tells you "go and find the truth, it's out there" is obviously off their rocker.

Hilarious but at the same time frustrating that if people are going to be so passionate about something they aren't passionate about the actual, very real issues which ARE affecting our land and waterways.
