Blue Pool

HR all over the place despite a new battery going in. Might be time for a new strap.

Plan was to try and survive afterwards, so not go deep. Don't think that went exactly to plan as started a bit too fast, and towards the end I was suffering.

Starting loop in Blue Pool was grand. Then crossed the road and the easy leg, uphill, to 8 I ended up to the right of, so had to come back. Main time loss of the race.

Tough uphill then to 9 with runnability to 10 not great, hit it fine but wasn't expecting it. Some downhill green then to get back across to 11, went near 8 to be safe. 12 was grand but wrong routechoice to 13. Stayed in the forest rather than exiting to the road, to be fair it is training and the forest was ok.

14 was a downhill leg. I liked 15 for some reason, maybe because it was more downhill. 16 was rough getting across to and wasn't feeling too fast. Then across to below the road for a few controls. All went fine apart from 20 where I hit the earlier depression which was hidden by the number of the map, no time lost, just hesitated.

Last few controls then before the run back to Blue Pool for a short final loop. Right calf I started to feel around 21 I think, not sore, just noticed it. Was tight afterwards but not desperate. Pace was slow towards the end, no speed, wasn't there if I wanted it and think some protection of the calf evident.

Enjoyable run on a nice morning. Disappointed not to get to go to the Galtees for a walk but roads would have been risky that early this morning, there was some ice and a heavy frost when I ventured out this morning.

Old Kenmare Road and Torc

HR would suggest I’m fit, and maybe I’ll try and convince myself that I am, but in reality something up with it.

Cold morning, 0 degrees according to the car. But lungs were fine. Some icy bits but no issues.

Plan was out and back, turning after 22 minutes, but turned a few minutes early to avoid running down a hill to turn around to come back up it again. Although I did more climb near the car park to get more running time.

Identified a route for sometime soon too on the way back, not a long one.

Friday Jan 17 #

(rest day)

Had to go to a removal after work so that put paid to any thoughts of training. Not a bad idea to take things easy though at the moment. Was feeling tired by the end of the day.

ahr:149 max:166 weight:72kg shoes: New Balance 890


HR tailed off towards the end which didn't correspond with a drop in effort so must be an issue with the technology.

Legs felt okay, small bit sore still after Tuesday.

Bit cold but dry after the recent rain. Didn't do my usual loop, went for a shorter version on purpose.

Wednesday Jan 15 #

(rest day)

Legs feeling sore today after my 'run' yesterday. Just shows how they get used to not running.

Killarney House

Coughed up a small bit of crap on what was a cool evening. But feeling ok during and afterwards. Will see how I am tomorrow. Good to get some fresh air.

Chanced no torch as evenings are getting a tiny bit brighter and had idea not to run in places where I needed a torch.
