Cycle (Hills (shek-O)) 3:30:00 [4] 90.0 km (2:20 / km)
ahr:135 max:169

Hardcore brick session with LCR.
got completely hammered last night and was definitely hungover this morning although i managed to go to bed at a proper hour 11ish. Felt totally awesome the first 2/3rd of the ride, i was going up the hills pretty strong and just hammering the rest of it, did loops at Shek-O across the relatively flat area but also did the hill from shek-O back up 3 times. dunno if its cause i wasn't feeling it or what but LCR was hammering it and i just couldnt keep up on the uphills especially towards the end- i was jsut in a bad state puttering along. did feel totally amazing the first 2/3rds, going really hard and did a lot of hills so was a pretty hard ride. maybe went too hard at the beginning and jsut lost my legs? hmmm i hope.

Run (Easy Run) 59:00 [2] 10.0 km (5:54 / km)
ahr:153 max:178

was planning for a 16km run but ended up just being 10km. the first couple km was just straight crazy fking up hill was nuts.... this was a brick session straight off the bike too. but once got to bowen LCR wanted to pick up the pace to 4:45, we were doing btw 4:45-4:50 and i was actually doing pretty good surprisingly. He mentioned he wanted to do a warm up and then 10km pace and at that point i knew theres no way i'd be able to keep up, so once i started slowing just told him to go ahead. Ended up slowing to a pretty slow pace and just trucking a long, met up again once i got to the 10km mark (he ran on somewhere else from bown and i just did bowen again- or part of it) and since he was shattered and i was not really excited we just watlked/cabbed it back. This run for whatever reason has made me rethink my training strategy... instead of only focusing on getting miles in i think i def have to add tempo runs to my workouts... def get the feel for speed a lot more. I can truck a long for a long distance but realizing thats not necessarily gonna make me faster....
