Spinning 45:00 [3]
shoes: Asics GT-1000 2

Tried out gym 2 streets away which I realised I can use for a £1 for my Friday x-training to save me lots of time when we move office. Obviously not as good as CSE but will do the job.

Thursday Nov 16 #

Running warm up/down 24:39 [3] 4.31 km (5:43 / km)
shoes: Asics GT-1000 4 (2)

Straight from work, probably last time up the super busy Mound etc. woo!

Running tempo 45:00 [4] 9.78 km (4:36 / km)
shoes: Asics GT-1000 4 (2)

3x12mins (3mins) LT. Legs better than past few days but were the limiting factor still. Standard wind for 2/3. Being slightly earlier was better for not meeting big groups but worse for bikes as had to basically stop on each lap to not get run over.

Wednesday Nov 15 #

Running warm up/down 17:00 [3] 3.0 km (5:40 / km)
shoes: Asics GT-1000 4

Made myself stretch/roll last night so legs not as bad as last night. However as of next week I'll also have to run home again :'(..due to work moving but won't have to carry a bag.

Strength and Conditioning 25:00 [3]
shoes: Asics GT-1000 4

Yoga 45:00 [0]

Saving my poor legs. Last time I can stay for relaxation due to timings (as certainly wouldn't be relaxing!) which is a shame as it's good for me.

Running 43:22 [3] 7.72 km (5:37 / km)
shoes: Asics GT-1000 4

Easy AT. Still DOMSy decided to run on the grass for a bit to ease the legs and managed to fall spectacularly so more cuts and bruises to add to my collection!

Tuesday Nov 14 #

Running warm up/down 28:12 [3] 4.79 km (5:53 / km)
shoes: Asics GT-1000 4 (2)

Inc. a few drills.

Running intervals 54:00 [4] 12.02 km (4:30 / km)
shoes: Asics GT-1000 4 (2)

12x3mins (90secs jog) with Sophie and Georgia. Legs felt like lead weights and it was an absolute suffer fest from about rep 4, (certainly not from going too fast) my body would just not go tonight. There was no way I was giving up though so dug deep, hung in there best I could and ground it out. Mentally so tough. This is not the most important session of the week at the moment though so I guess sometimes it will just be like this.

Orienteering 32:21 [4] 6.93 km (4:40 / km)
shoes: Asics GT-1000 4 (2)

Biggar urban.
Good start, lost about 5secs on 6 where took a few steps into the graveyard before realised couldn't get out the other side. Hesitated a bit of 8 as thought I was further along the street than I was.
Then I made a massive mistake at 9 - (1:30). I couldn't get across the road for a start which stressed me out a bit, I took the left hand route of what looked like a 50:50. Came along the burn and turned up where the trees changed to open but there was no control. I then climbed up the hill a bit to check if it was hidden, looking left and right. Couldn't see it and ended up scrambling to top of banking. Ran backwards and forwards along the path and still couldn't see it so got a bit angry as I knew I was in the circle. Ran right around the path back down and here it was visible from the path I'd been on at the bottom - blindingly obvious if you'd come from the right.
Quite a few people had a problem here so although I did overcomplicate it and fail to sort it out, I think there was something funny going on here.
Lost a few seconds again on 10 where I hesitated at an unmapped entrance right before mine and then had to hunt for the control again at the bush but must have been running quite fast as didn't lose as much as thought (or everyone else had same issues).
Quite good through the next few though and no real problems right to the end. Without the big error on 9 I'd have been pretty happy with my run.

Saturday Nov 11 #

Running warm up/down 25:55 [3] 4.82 km (5:23 / km)

Including checking out the course and drills.
**Check data from watch.

Running race 15:03 [5] 4.06 km (3:42 / km)
shoes: Adidas XCS 4

National Short Course XC - Kirkcaldy. Another course with a lack of mud / anything tough, although it was better than last year in that there was a bit of a hill to do 4 times.
Aimed to start slower, knew the pace would be fast from the start so was happy I managed to sit in behind a group I normally beat (we still went through the first km in 3:34 and it was uphill so I hate to think what those ahead did). Started passing people from halfway around the first lap and caught a big group I wanted to beat just after halfway. Only passed by 1 or 2 people really and same girl got me on the line as Cumbernauld. Although paced it better it was still pretty bad - however another decent result as those ahead are all people I'd not expect to beat and ahead of a few who have been beating me (finished 30th).
