Sunday Jan 26 #


rest day - feeling pretty drained and a poor night sleep - lower right back was painful off and on through the night. Fine today with digging... not sure what caused it.

Saturday Jan 25 #

Hill Race race 1:20:00 [5]

Devil's Burden
3rd leg with TR, set off steady, bad miss about 5 mins into it - took an unmarked track (on the "taped route" - (WTF) then steady work all way round.
Pleased with how legs stood up to pounding - esp the 5km track run back.

steady run 20:00 [3]

Bits of warm-up felt Ok in legs from the start :-)

Friday Jan 24 #


rest day

Thursday Jan 23 #

Pilates 1:00:00 [1]

Tough session (replacement for Monday). Using small weighted balls - tried the new 1.5kg (others are 0.5kg)... big difference.

Wednesday Jan 22 #

orienteering race 46:00 [5]

DNC Forvie, north end. A bit tricky for first half then got more technical and physical. A couple of little wobbles early on then a stoping short at 11 - cost me maybe 1 min then brain fade from last control to finish and lost over 1 min - let E past me... Probably best chance of the season to beat him!
Legs felt strong early on then back stiffened up (too much heather) and O struggled later on.

steady run warm up/down 12:00 [3]

Decent warm-up along small paths.

Tuesday Jan 21 #

Intervals hills 10:00 [5]

Deeside runners, Tarland way hills - did half set, so 6x 90secs, jog back, equal recovery, plus a couple of 30 secs from bridge on return - to make it to double figures :-)
Legs not too bad but sensible to cut short - running Devil's Burden leg 3 on sat so no point hammering myself too hard.

steady run warm up/down 50:00 [3]

its a long way to start of hills!

Monday Jan 20 #

steady run 30:00 [3]

After-school running club. 15 out plus RC, WB and SR. Sprints -30, 45, 60, 90, 60, 45, 30 with about equal recovery. Stick hte boot in on a few of them, seemed to have decent leg turnover - for a short distance at least :-)

Physio exercises 12:00 [1]

both sets
