Ran from home down to Rivelin, out round Damflask and Agden and back via Loxley Valley, then straight back up to Crookes. It was nice to just plod along but spent the first half annoyed about yesterday's run and the second half dreading the hill back up to Crookes. It was definitely an error not to drive down to Rivelin to avoid this, pretty tired by the end.
Northern xc. Not a fun race - tired from the word go, legs heavy, breathing too hard etc and didn't feel like myself. Really really wanted to drop out but didn't think that 'feeling crap' was a justifiable reason. Felt marginally better in the second half and overtook a few but by then it was way too late to rescue any sort of result. Frustrating because training has been going ok but races seem to be going terribly recently. Hopefully this will change soon!
Work to track. 12 x 400m with 1 min standing recovery, all around or just under 80. Felt tired from early on but was running with a good group of girls which kept me going. Then 4 x 100 with Charlotte and Aislinn. Then ran back to work to get car.
Also, Charlotte pointed out a boxer called Anthony Joshua at the track but unfortunately the rest of us hadn’t heard of him...we were going to ask if he was him but he looked to be in the ‘zone’ with his headphones and entourage.
