Feel the Burns. Dad withdrew his entry due to cold so had to be a big girl this year and not rely on his pacing. Most nervous I’ve been for a race in a while but more confident than last year as have done more long stuff. Luckily Dad loves a good split so he gave me last year’s so I had an idea of how to pace it and not dramatically blow up. Paced it well, strong up the hills (especially Fauldshiels where I ran anyway from my group and caught and passed some of next) and managed to stride down. Nice day to be in the hills, stronger field this year so 4th lady but happy with 3:45 PB.

Lap of the course before plus drills/strides etc.
Chatty with Sara after, trying to keep to what was necessary.

Livingston East League XC. Did this for the team as not ideal before tomorrow but Gala had the chance of pulling up from 4th to 3rd overall. Wore icebugs over spikes as course was hard trail aside from a couple of bits and wanted to look after feet. Decent run, paced pretty well and had a good battle with Keira (who got me on the last lap last week) over last bit, she just got me but I made it very hard for her. 10th and Gala 3rd overall so worth running (masters also pulled up to 3rd) so good day all round. Not everyday you’re in a podium seniors team including mum and daughter as counters.

Running warm up/down 27:22 [3] 4.91 km (5:34 / km) +26m 5:26 / km

Running tempo 30:00 [4] 6.36 km (4:43 / km) +26m 4:37 / km
shoes: Asics GT-1000 8

2x12mins (3mins) solo on the Meadows. So glad I'd only planned 2 tonight (similar to 2 lap XC this weekend and not going crazy before weekend while still keeping a good session in) as it was wet and really windy again. Working to effort rather than pace as almost going backwards at points and it was one of those days where it felt like the wind was always in my face. Despite the conditions I was still faster than where I started last winter and I didn't get stressed/annoyed like I used to over things I can't control.

Most with Sophie, so windy that felt as though we were running into a brick wall at times. Keeping it sensible with a long tough weekend coming.

5x1km (1min) @ target 5km pace at the track with Kara and Sophie. Wasn't feeling up for this session most of the day but glad I was meeting the girls to get me going. Bit breezy in places but standard Edinburgh as often a lot worse. Actually ended up doing a really good session with all times under target.

Wfh gave me the opportunity to easily run at lunch which I took to see more daylight (greylight) and run before the next storm comes in later this afternoon. Some off-road and hills on Craiglockhart too, garmin had a melt-down but enjoyed it and feeling good.
