Made it to Norway. Flew to Amsterdam last night, had a nice hotel, but slept poorly and not for long enough with a 6:30 flight this morning. Then had to wait for other before driving with a shopping stop on the way. Went for a little explore with Matt & Matt before the sun went down. Nice snowy path up the hill but after that stayed on the snowy roads up around the hill, stopping at the ski hire place on the way back to meet the rest of the crew who had some the necessary investigation. Good to loosen out the legs and fun with snow. Hip seemed ok. Bit of stretching this evening and we should be good tomorrow.

Easy in the morning before travel this afternoon. Hip fierce tight again. Some mobility before I started helped though it did tighten up throughout the day afterwards. Little tired in the legs after yesterday, mostly could feel it in the hills. Going for a week of XC skiing with tight hips doesn't sound ideal but we'll see what happens.

From home in the evening. Actually mostly in the bright too because I stopped working fairly early! Looking for flat for the moderate effort so headed towards Ballyogan. Was fairly reasonable, didn't cover the same ground too much with a little bit of looping to keep it fairly flat. Felt fairly cruisy for the first 15 mins, and then would feel a little like work at times but I'd be able to get my breath back if I just thought about it a bit. Last 10 mins had a bit more uphill and was working to hold on a bit, but still could have gone quicker so seemed about right. Nice session.

Runmute. Slow to wake up this morning. Ok once I started running and rapidly got too warm I was ok though. Downhill helps as usual. Tried out the new greenway by Energia Park. It's a nice little improvement there. Would actually consider cycling it over Ailesbury road which is often not very nice. Drills and strides there, again slow to wake up and a bit sluggish. A little afraid of the hamstring but no actual issues.

To work. Taking another day off running to give the legs a chance. Ball of my left foot was a little sore on Sunday so good to give it a break as well as the hamstring. Took the N11 extension. Enjoyed the first bit greatly. N11 is a bit bleak in a few spots, especially on a gray windy Dublin morning but overall was a grand old time. Wondering a bit what the impact of my manager leaving in work will be and whether I want to be a manager.

Home. Dark, but not wet or too cold so grand enough. Nothing too interesting.
WFH, didn't leave the house except to get lunch. Needed after a pretty active week.
Did spend quite a chunk of the evening on the various rehab/prehab that I've currently got. Would like if my elbow wasn't sore next week like it has been the past two years (it's essentially tennis elbow). Have been doing some stuff for that but kicking it up a notch this week.
