PIOM Long Distance.

Arrived at our accommodation 1:30am last night which was 2:30 Swedish time! SO tired!
First time running in Portugal and the preparation wasn't the best but wanted to run anyway and it was a WRE which was good. Didn't know what to expect but once I started running I realised it was very similar to Australia which was cool! I got told not to run in the green but I didn't listen so well :P Got very stuck on the long leg to 3! Decided to avoid the green a lot after that!
The second long leg I hit my leg in the same place I hit last week and it hurt like hell! Walked a bit to get up to the track and then decided to take the long route around which actually ended up to be ok.

Mistake on the control just before the spectator and running to the spectator control and lost a few mins together there...otherwise it was ok actually...a few silly routes but no other mistakes...tired in the end with the combo of arriving late and running a long!

Ended up 6th, 7min behind Svetlana and only 1min30sec behind Nadiya V. Without the time lost it would've been a pretty good result, but I'm happy anyway with my first time in Portugal and with the bad preparation due to our flight change...

Second best WRE points after WOC middle 2016 so I guess that is a good sign for WOC selections...we shall see...

Intervallflex at Friskis&Svettis. Winter sports day with the kids today and I was put on the gym group.
Joined in with this training and it was actually pretty tough! Fun though!

Was a core session in the afternoon which I wanted to join in with but we had some very naughty students in which I had to keep an eye on the whole time so only did a few exercises here and there...

6x4min with 2min recoveries. Bloody tough!

WD 10min

Feeling much better re tiredness! Needed that easy day yesterday. Heel feeling much better, just still a little swollen. Decided to do the clubs intervals on the cross trainer as it was cold and icy out and I want to give it a rest from running today again. Feels ok now too which is good. Fingers crossed it was just a small short inflammation

Strength and Conditioning 29:35 [3] 1.74 km (16:59 / km) +31m 15:36 / km

Did some balancing work, core and then some weights. Felt alright and even heel ok.
Calf and Achilles a bit tight though, so that could be causing the heel pain.
Did some good foam rolling after weights which felt awesome!

Tisdagsbana Ö.

So tired today! Felt tired the whole day even with a rest day yesterday. Tried to just hang on to Lisa and Hilda but I didn't try and push the pace in the end as I knew it wouldn't be good for me when I was that exhausted!
Heel still a bit funny and my calves a tight so I will be careful with all of this this week and try to take it easy before the camp.
