2 PM

Turbo 1:20:54 [3]
ahr:128 max:152

In the gym with ear phones listening to the radio through my phone. Started pretty easy for the first 10 minutes before turning the resistance up slightly and holding a slightly more moderate intensity for the rest and easier for the last 10 minutes.
Forgot how much of a difference music can make when sitting on the indoor bike.
3 PM

9 AM

Trail run (75' hilly) 1:14:39 [3] 12.26 km (6:05 / km) +655m 4:48 / km
shoes: #2 S-lab Ultra 2

Walked from the hotel to Holyrood Park and summited Arthur's seat before bumping into Rob Sinco and Max and following them up, down, round, up, down and then back through Edinburgh to hotel. Legs super heavy and tired on the climbs. No distinct soreness that I could I point to but just a general lack of power and fatigue.

11 AM

Trail run (Running workshop) 10:07 [2] 1.3 km (7:47 / km) +70m 6:08 / km
shoes: #2 S-lab Ultra 2

My schdule for the day was to take a how to trail run workshop 11-12, 5km guided run 12-1 and a 10km guided run 2-3:30.
Had a good day and everyone was super enthusiastic despite low cloud/drizzly rain.
This was 10 minutes of running to and from and up the hill that I took the group of around 35 people to and talked about how to run up and down hills. Seemed like everyone found it quite interesting and everyone said thank you afterwards afterwards which was very nice.
12 PM

Trail run (5km guided run) 36:49 [2] 4.79 km (7:41 / km) +201m 6:21 / km
shoes: #2 S-lab Ultra 2

5 km guided run. Lots of stopping to make sure everyone was alright. Some people finding it pretty tough but everyone did it and seemed to enjoy it.
2 PM

Trail run (10km guided run) 1:15:35 [2] 9.69 km (7:48 / km) +495m 6:13 / km
shoes: #2 S-lab Ultra 2

Climbs seemed to go on for a fairly long time, I felt heavy and sluggish. About 4 minutes of stopping at summits to keep the group together. This group in much better shape then the others and probably most enthusiastic. Some real steep descent which I wasn't expecting and was probably quite dangerous for the majority of people never mind people who might not do much exercise any way!

After this spent a long time taking down all the tents and banners and fences.
Quite a similar type of tiredness I experience after a long day at work, quite mentally/emotionally more than anything although legs felt supper sluggish and unresponsive I think because of the mega slow paces on pretty challenging terrain at times, and just being on my feet all day with unrelenting chit chat. Did some strides after each run and that really seemed to help legs feel a bit more responsive.

10 AM

Grass run (Warm up) 22:12 [2] 4.94 km (4:30 / km) +24m 4:23 / km
shoes: Sense 6 SG #2

Laps of Fitz Park with some drills and strides. Felt much more bouncier than last time and it was much nicer weather with sunny blue skies. actually pretty warm.

Trail run (Uphill tempo Skiddaw) 44:58 [4] 7.9 km (5:42 / km) +908m 3:37 / km
shoes: Sense 6 SG #2

Felt pretty similar to last time, tried going off a little steadier but Jenkins still hurt the same. Looks like it was a little quicker than last time but also recorded it shorter but still did the same route. Weather probably made a difference, much better than last time but got very warm. Definitely getting a hair cut before the race. Need to remember to adjust bumbag so that's it's a little tighter.
11 AM

Trail run (Warm down) 18:06 [2] 3.68 km (4:55 / km) +18m 4:48 / km
shoes: Sense 6 SG #2

Took a few minutes to get my breath back at the top then jogged down the top bit and walked down jenkins. Felt like I recovered fairly quickly, probably was a bit more than a tempo run towards the top. The false summit towards the top catches me out every singe time.

1 PM

Trail run (60’ easy ) 1:02:59 [2] 13.35 km (4:43 / km) +290m 4:15 / km
shoes: Salomon sense 6

Over golf course and Cunswick with laps of the hilly field and back, feeling better than yesterday. Did some strides and hill sprints to finish with which felt pretty good!

Wednesday May 15 #

5 PM

Trail run (60' easy ) 1:07:10 [2] 13.25 km (5:04 / km) +240m 4:39 / km
shoes: Sense Ride

Feeling a little lethargic today, not sure why. Quads quite sore as well, I think probably from coming down between reps yesterday. Walked to the top of the golf course and started the run from there. Perked up a bit by the end but not quite right enough for strides.
