Trains with ShUOC in Bishop Woods
Was generally pretty good and accurate if not a little bit out of control in places losing contact sometimes but tried to discipline myself in to making sure I knew where I was when I felt I was just running. One slight miss in to the green for the first time wasn't expecting such a massive change and took some bad route choices through the green with loads of windblow a couple of times

rhr:38 slept:13.0

Sleep is cumulative for the day as I couldn't do anything after beerienteering. Feeling better for it now though and cold doesn't seem to have degressed much either so looking forward to the weekend now.
4 PM

Running 31:13 [3] 6.1 km (5:07 / km) +145m 4:34 / km
ahr:143 shoes: Asic's GT-2150

Pretty steady out up Fulwood to Crimicar then up to Redmires

Back from Claremount Hospital via Tapton Hill Post Office...Mis-read the opening times :(

Heart rate looks as if it's getting back to normal but legs felt really tired and sort of unused to running, maybe its the after effects from Wednesday intervals after the lack of training?

Running tempo (Threshold) 5:00 [4] 1.42 km (3:31 / km) +12m 3:23 / km
ahr:168 shoes: Asic's GT-2150

Tempo from Crimicar Lane to Claremount Hospital, legs felt pretty bad after coming up Crimicar but was able to streth out a bit and keep the pace strong throughout

Not feeling great today, more alcohol related than the after effects of the training yesterday which is good

Wednesday Feb 23, 2011 #

rhr:40 slept:8.0

Going for a run today at some point as I can't take any more rest days they're so boring when everyone else is doing cool stuff.

After the interval session my left thigh hurts a bit towards the top hopefully it was just due to cooling down too much between the session and the jog home
4 PM

Running warm up/down 20:00 [3] 3.2 km (6:15 / km) +70m 5:38 / km
ahr:150 shoes: Inov-8 X-Talons

Jog down to Endcliffe and and back

S and C 7:00 [3] 0.5 km (14:00 / km)

A couple of drills before the session

Running intervals (Threshold) 30:00 [4] 5.4 km (5:33 / km)
ahr:187 max:193 shoes: Inov-8 X-Talons

Was meant to be at threshold pace and leg turnover was fine at the pace but heartrate was just sky high managed to stick with Crickmore so was feeling pretty motivated.

3mins recovery

4*600m with 90secd recovery (was meant to be 5 but took a breather after 3 as I didn't want to over do it too soon after illness) felt pretty good on the first three keeping equal with Jonny but again heartrate was sky high hit 193!! So took one off then joined Jonny on the last one which he pulled away from me slightly

Pretty pleased with the session as it's my first run in nearly two weeks and got some good training in and some confidence for the season. Also I might enquire about doing some more XC next year as it is good training
