2 PM

Running warm up/down 16:30 [3] 2.36 km (6:59 / km) +115m 5:37 / km
shoes: Inov8 X Talon 212 coral

Run to bottom of Whiteside

Running tempo 15:09 [4] 0.98 km (15:28 / km) +290m 6:14 / km
shoes: Inov8 X Talon 212 coral

Had decided to do a session inspired by Kilian J's fave: VK hard, jog down, then 10km tempo. I was going to run up Whiteside hard which is almost exactly 500m climb, jog down, then do some flat reps/tempo.
But got up to the first 'lump', and wind was SO strong, decided to carry on and see if it eased with the angle, then got phlem stuck in my throat and started retching, then the wind got even worse... was getting blown off the path! So decided to retreat and carry on with some reps lower down. Soooooo slow and slippy going back down as there was so much wet slippy snow and legs felt like jelly. Such hard work into the headwind & on slippy snow.

Running 45:00 [2] 5.44 km (8:16 / km) +65m 7:48 / km
shoes: Inov8 X Talon 212 coral

'Jog' down Whiteside (more like slow walk over the wet snow and half being blown over).
Recoveries in between hill reps and sprints.
Warm down jog home.

Running hills 5:30 [5] 0.48 km (11:28 / km) +77m 6:22 / km
shoes: Inov8 X Talon 212 coral

Absolutely grim 3 hill reps up the steep grassy bit at bottom of Grasmoor. Got steeper as it went on, and head wind got worse as it went on too. HARD.

Running intervals 3:00 [4] 0.76 km (3:57 / km)
shoes: Inov8 X Talon 212 coral

3 x flat-ish one min reps, not at full pace. Phew.

Very haphazard session in the end but enjoyed it, and think I'll definitely try the planned one again in less windy weather!
6 PM

Yoga (Sivananda) 1:00:00 [1]
