Sunday Jan 21 #

running 8:00 [5] 1.7 km (4:42 / km)

10 * roughly 100 / 120 m sprints in front of swimming pool. not my best sprinting due to tired legs. bit of recovery in between each one but not much

running 1:31:21 [3] 17.02 km (5:22 / km) +170m 5:07 / km

steady run from home round Dollar sticking to cleared streets as much as possible
pleased with pace given that there were some sections that were definitely slowed down slightly by underfoot conditions (but not too much), lots of U-turns, slow for corners and occasional getting out of the way of cars
v tired by the end
apparently no ill effects from yesterday, apart from left quad which was a bit moany

running 8:00 [3] 1.1 km (7:16 / km) +25m 6:32 / km

very slow jog after getting home to find the sledgers and to shake my legs out a bit

Saturday Jan 20 #

running 57:00 [3]

hill bounds on steep bit of road. fastish run down longer main road. 50 - 100m sprints on Argyle Street, slightly longer on very last one when went into the Ness as well
All slightly compromised by snow - uphills not too bad, downhills not too bad but being more careful than I would have liked, sprints rubbish for snow.
Downhill too long really, but didn't want to be going fast down the steep bit.
I'm logging this as 3 since it really wasn't as hard work as intervals - really good work out for legs and core, and was a bit out of breath by the top of the hill and the end of the sprints each time, but cardiovascularly nowhere near as tough as a standard ints session - but still tiring on the legs and core

running 34:30 [3]

wu, wd

swimming 10:00 [3]

Kirsten's party. Not as bad as I feared.

Friday Jan 19 #

running 1:11:29 [3] 14.1 mi (5:04 / mi) +170m 4:53 / mi

Heriot Watt after school, 5 laps on roads.
keeping a fairly decent pace.
no snow at all, hooray
unlike in Dollar :-(

Wednesday Jan 17 #

running 50:00 [3] 8.56 km (5:50 / km) +130m 5:26 / km

run from school. 8 inches snow at home, some bits of run eg round school cleared, other parts not, but managed to avoid anything too deep.
4 stops to chat to people and to go to the Coop.

running 1:02:00 [3] 9.9 km (6:16 / km) +100m 5:58 / km

quick turn around at home to take Storm for a run, this time more in less-cleared areas ie railway
utterly done in by the time I got home.
immediately followed by 45 mins shovelling snow
pf seems OK.
quads hurting again after having been a lot better. not liking trudging through snow and heavy legs from snow

Tuesday Jan 16 #

running 1:41:40 [3] 16.2 km (6:17 / km) +245m 5:50 / km

lots of snow. OK to run in where it was fairly deep ie 2 - 3 inches, not so good where it was just a sprinkling or the pavement gritters had been, because then it was slippy.
Harviestoun, Sheardale Woods (still horrible and muddy!), railway, 2 laps of Newfield and struggle up the hill home

running 34:00 [3] 4.8 km (7:05 / km) +70m 6:36 / km

jog down to Coop via Mill Green with Storm, and back with heavy rucksack, shopping bag and Storm
ended up with a lot of time spent training today, but all fairly low intensity. Also walked down to see Lesley at physio room and back home
even more snow forecast :-((
