Leg 1 Devil's Burdens

fairly strong West wind
took it steady up the hill, and steady on the way down the steep bit. had to wait about 10? secs to punch at first control and maybe 15 at second (only 2 punches at first, and only 1 at second!!)
started really turning on the effort from the water splash onwards
feeling sick by the end, so trying hard enough!

Storm jog in afternoon - even more stops than normal.

Wednesday Jan 24 #

running 1:02:00 [5]

hill bounds on start of Harviestoun track at Dollar end (past Belmont House), sprints on pavement by A91
hill a bit short / not so steep, but did 5 reps in each set.
sprints much more suitable than previously, although still not flat

logging this as 5 because it definitely felt like hard work - more sprints, and less downhill compared to uphill.

legs tired! l quad moaning by the time I got home. will wait to see how pf responds

running 30:00 [3]

wu, wd

Tuesday Jan 23 #

running 9:00 [5]

10 * short sprints, possibly about 100 odd metres on average
managed to find some sections of Harviestoun flat bit that weren't too icy, but were deep puddles instead.

running 47:00 [3] 6.95 km (6:46 / km) +140m 6:09 / km

recovery jog with Storm at Harviestoun
snow is melting, so we now have the lovely mixture of snow, ice, sludge, mud and puddles.
pf a bit worse on getting up this morning

Monday Jan 22 #

running 56:15 [3]

hill bounds outside Rowan's house.
3 sets of:

5 times: almost 2 mins up from below Merlin park to almost Rising Hill, followed by a few seconds recovery then run back down
after fifth hill, did 3 * 100m ish sprints on flatter bit from Rising Hill to 30mph sign, jog up first, sprint down, sprint up, sprint down, then run down to bottom to start all over again

legs OK, tired by end.
seemed harder work than on Saturday?
Hill is only just steep enough - it's OK outside Merlin House and Rowan's but too shallow the rest of it.
sprints not great there because not flat

running 35:00 [3]

run with Storm in the snow on golf course then back home + to and from hill bounds
