(rest day)

Orienteering was cancelled so that was the excuse I needed to not do anything. I think if it was on I would have run but took the opportunity to rest when it wasn't. Definitely feeling better today.

I did drive home from town at about 6.30 with the red warning until 7. Wasn't that bad but I did get a bit upset seeing someone out on a bike. Made sure to give them a lane of a gap when I passed them.

(rest day)

Not feeling as bad as I did yesterday, and improved as the day went on despite the exertions in getting the house ready for Christmas. Still coughing up phlegm.

(rest day)

Santa is today's reason for not training. That and i've still got a bit of phlegm in my lungs. Definitely think i'm not 100% but not feeling ill. Reckon i'll probably skip training tomorrow and just run on Sunday.

(rest day)

Mary has to do something this evening so training therefore not an option at normal training time. Trying to fit something in late doesn't work due to bed time & our dinner time being after bed time.

Rest might be a positive though, give the body a chance to clear out whatever might be in my chest.

Turbo Trainer 46:26 [3]
ahr:138 max:150

Avg Cadence = 98rpm

Breaking Bad S03 E03

Not sure what's up, feels like i've a bit of phlegm in my throat but feeling ok otherwise. Still went on the bike and don't think it had any significant effect.

Legs were tired this morning after yesterday's walking & running. But didn't affect me on the bike. Did go for Breaking Bad as opposed to Luke Cage for a shorter spin.

Walking 50:55 [3] 4.37 km (11:38 / km) +137m 10:04 / km
ahr:119 max:170 shoes: New Balance 890

Bray Head

Work trip to collect data from the footfall counters. Only up the track and back, skipped the loop as another work walk to do after.

Time adjusted to Garmin moving time. Didn't stop the clock when working on the footfall counters.

Dry day but strong headwind on the way up.

Very quiet this morning, no one else around.
1 PM

Walking 1:09:54 [3] 4.82 km (14:30 / km) +304m 11:02 / km
ahr:102 max:142 shoes: New Balance 890


Changed the time again as there were a number of photo stops and path works inspections. Another work job, my colleague needed to check the works done to date on the Strickeen path.

Windy here too. With the switchbacks sometimes it was into the face and other times at your back.

Met a few people up here this afternoon.
3 PM

Road 46:39 [3] 9.39 km (4:58 / km) +189m 4:31 / km
ahr:159 max:177 shoes: New Balance 890

Gap of Dunloe

Since I was here already once back down from Strickeen I put on my running gear and ran up the Gap for a bit. Didn't go all the way to the top, stopped after the bigger climb. And didn't need a torch for a run.

Comparing my running time on the climb versus my bike time.
Running - 3.13
Bike - 2.06
My running time yesterday wouldn't have been flat out so think I could get them closer.

HR seems a bit high, and stayed high on the run back down the hill which I probably had a tail wind for. The wind definitely had a bearing on the pace for the climb.

Legs feeling fine which is good.

Time for a plan for the week.

Monday - Turbo
Tuesday - Run (if i've the energy)
Wednesday - Turbo
Thursday - Run
Friday - Rest (Santa in Tralee)
Saturday - Run (parkrun)
Sunday - Orienteering (urban in Killarney)

Got a bit of walking to do for work tomorrow so that will have a bearing on whether I run or not, Bray Head + Strickeen. I've parkrun pencilled in for Saturday, should hopefully be able to manage 2 days hardish running in a row.
5 PM

Cycling 46:19 intensity: (12 @1) + (14:18 @2) + (31:49 @3)
ahr:141 max:154
