Hungover day of funnnnn. Not actually feeling that minging I just didn't want to go running. 2nd time I have been out this term, very different to the past 2 years freshers.

10 AM

Orienteering 20:00 [2] 3.0 km (6:40 / km)

Jogged the first one and last one

Orienteering 15:00 [4] 2.7 km (5:33 / km)

Sprintervals at Steils and Oxgangs. Went hard after first one as a warm up but shins were flaming up so dropped it back after 2 intervals but still worthwhile and ran with full emit, control descriptions etc. Legs felt pretty terrible and lower back has had some discomfort. Has been for the past 3/4 days..

Running warm up/down 25:00 [1] 4.0 km (6:15 / km)

Getting lost coming back because I didn't have a map with the area on

7 AM

Strength and Conditioning 1:00:00 [2]

WU and straight into weights, 3x8 OH squat 15kg, 3x8 back squat 20kg, 4x8 bench press 20kg. Light and reduced reps again trying to steer well clear of doms. Circuit at the end, every exercise with 5kg weight plate which made for a nice change. Stretching and rolling
7 PM

Cycling 50:00 [2]

Horrific headwind out to training and legs already struggling. Coming back was slow oh so slow.

Football 3G 1:20:00 [3]

Hibs training. Started and felt a bit crap like usual after S&C and long day but just had nothing to give at all. Last 30min I was so spaced out and felt faint/sick and was very close to bailing. Not sure what caused this but perhaps didn't eat enough..

12 PM

Running warm up/down 18:00 [1] 3.6 km (5:00 / km)

Flat-library to print-CSE-start

Orienteering 28:00 [3] 4.7 km (5:57 / km)

Sprintervals with Reynolds down past dynamic earth, royal mile and dumbiedykes. Lot of distractions/people/building works etc and no control descriptions but tried to run confidently and focus on picking correct routes and executing while ignoring how crap my legs felt.

Running 12:30 [1] 2.0 km (6:15 / km)

CSE back to flat

Today probably only manageable because I got a lift between uni and hibs and didn't cycle. Reducing amount of football now into next week where I don't plan on doing any.
7 AM

Strength and Conditioning 1:00:00 [1]

Loads of faffy exercises in circuit gym then down to performance gym for 3x8 OH Squat 15kg, 2x8 BS 20kg and 3x8 BP 20kg. Reduced weight and reps because I'm fed up of having doms so the weight can wait 10 days until after JEC
5 PM

Football 3G 1:20:00 [2]

Uni training 5-6.30. Not that intense and when I got overly competitive I reminded myself I have another session and chilled out. So many people down, love it!
7 PM

Football 3G 1:30:00 [3]

Hibs dev training 7.15-9. Only 11 down because no game at the weekend so some bits were really relaxed but did a fair amount of possession games and some shuttle sprints which were higher intensity. Trained better and more confident than a month ago :)

Monday Sep 22, 2014 #

Running 53:02 [3] 9.02 km (5:53 / km) +150m 5:26 / km

Pre breakfast run same route as last week except my legs did not feel good and it was harder work that it should have been. Was 95 seconds slower. Ankle taped up and fine

Running warm up/down 8:00 [1] 1.1 km (7:16 / km)

Plod back from Blackford
