Running warm up/down 5:00 [1] 0.6 km (8:20 / km)
shoes: VJ Bold (Pink)

Orienteering race (Night) 47:54 [4] 5.0 km (9:35 / km) +135m 8:26 / km
shoes: VJ Bold (Pink)

Larch Hill night-o.

Quite enjoyable. Lower legs were tight but usable. Had some heartburn which made it a little less fun but overall my nav was good (not that it was a particularly taxing area) and good craic.

I am such a fan of night-o

Running warm up/down 9:00 [3] 1.0 km (9:00 / km) +30m 7:50 / km
shoes: VJ Bold (Pink)

Running long (...ish) 1:18:00 [2] 8.3 km (9:24 / km) +430m 7:28 / km
shoes: Innov8 Terraclaw 250

Run on ticknock. Excitment of the night was Brian's battery going on fire.

Solaeus was quite sore for the whole thing and my calves were pretty tight. Didn't bring a sports bra either so the downhill was not as fast as it should have been which is probably for the best given the leg troubles.

Running warm up/down 7:30 intensity: (5:00 @2) + (2:30 @3) 1.2 km (6:15 / km)

Running intervals (X trainer) 9:40 [4] 2.0 km (4:50 / km)

Decided I wanted to do Three 2k interals with 90 second rest. Mixed it up between X trainer and Elliptical for the hell of it. Was fairly sweating.

Running intervals (Erg) 10:22 [4] 2.0 km (5:11 / km)

Running intervals (X trainer) 9:22 [4] 2.0 km (4:41 / km)

Strength (BOXFIT) 45:00 [3]

This class was on when I was finished my session so I said I'd give it a go.

Most of the class consisted of sets of the following:

1. 2 min push ups. I started off doing real push ups and I seemed to be the only one. Soon realised I would not be able to keep these up for the duration of the 45 minute class.
2. 2 min kettle bell squats
3. 2 min Laying into punch pads for all you're worth

The end of the class was 3 sets of 1 min of leg lifts and then 30 seconds hold at the bottom and 1 min mountain climbers 30 second high plank. Needless to say my form wasn't impeccable...

Way harder than I was expecting. Can't lift my arms. Haven't done any kind of endurancey strength in a while. It's been years since I did any kind of boxing. Was fun.

Running warm up/down 5:00 [1] 0.8 km (6:15 / km)

Got new perscription insoles and runners at the weekend so I need to gradually ease into using them this week. Means another interval session missed but I think it's worth it. Don't want to break myself.

Chest is still pretty shitty after yesterday.

Monday: Lunchtime run. PM Climbing
Tuesday: Easy run breaking in the shoes/insoles still
Wednesday: Long run (including oing in Cruagh) Will not wear insoles for this
Thursday: Who knows. Screw you Thursdays.
Friday: rest
Saturday: night-o
Sunday: Donadea local event

Running 27:00 [3] 5.2 km (5:12 / km)
shoes: Mizuno Wave Rider 19

Work-Sandymount-Merrion gates-Work.

Felt much harder than it usually does but that could be the new shoes. Feet felt a bit strange but nothing bad or sore.

Climbing 1:00:00 [1]

10 AM

Strength 1:00 [1]

calf raises 20x

Hill run 42:55 [5] 5.61 km (7:39 / km) +255m 6:14 / km

Howth Winter Hill run

Distance and climb taken from IMRA website. Time is a wild guess

Chest was really just not having it today. Couldn't speak after it for ages it was so bad.

Ate wrong,
Wore the wrong clothes,
Went off too fast at the beginning even though I told myself not to.

Not a great day out. Still enjoyable though is a sick masochistic way. Lessons learned.
