Little jog in KP after work. Hamstrings feeling a bit tight already from gym. Saw a control at the bottom of the sand track as I ran past so I went past it again on the way back and this time saw Rob heading into it so followed him around the loop. I'd forgotten about Thursday night training but Liam is away on camp and Amy had hockey grading so didn't work for us this week anyway.

5x1k from the broadwalk again but did the first 4 uphill and the last one downhill this time. Wanted to try to run this a bit more within myself, like the first time, and thought I might have started out even slower than that as I didn't feel very well warmed up on the first. I had felt ready to go but Daniel walked through my starting point just as I was about to start so I talked to him for a few minutes before starting. I was prepared to see a 4:30 on the first but it was actually 4:15 and I then went 4:07, 4:01, 3:58 so clearly faster than last week even. On the last one I turned around to do it downhill just to see how different it felt and ran a 3:37. I actually found the downhill effort felt harder than going uphill so maybe need to do some more shorter faster efforts to get comfortable at a faster pace.

Easy run around KP. Tried to set out early enough to get Liam up in time to be ready for his 7:15am tennis lesson and ready to go straight to school after it. Was quite happy with how comfortably I was cruising around but I didn't realise just how slowly I was going so finished a bit later than I really wanted to. Felt a bit rushed but got there before Josh at least.

Little jog in KP with Rachel. Didn't have time for drills and strides, because Liam had to get to school tennis training, but I tried to do a bit of token prancing along the way. Still a bit sore around left heel/ankle.

Long run down to sunset hospital and then around KP. Left heel a bit sore early on and felt pretty tired for the bit around the river. I didn't really think I would be up to increasing the pace towards the end the way I had planned but surprisingly felt better once I started climbing into KP.
