Warm and windy in the park. Even after the session I've no idea what direction that wind is coming. Legs felt tired. First 3 reps were similar to last week on the pace side of things. But on reps 4 and 5 I struggled. HR for the rep 1 & 3 are the same as for 1 and 3 last week. Rep 2 is lower, rep 4 is higher and rep 5 is the same......just not able to move fast enough, was 19sec slower for rep 5 than last week but overall spent almost 1 minute longer in HRZ 4 and 5. Disappointing workout but another one in the legs all the same.

Woke up earlyish so decided to head in to work but do a slightly longer route in than usual (only slightly!).
By the end of today I should have my 7.24 (and some, should have ~9hrs on the clock) worked up in flexi for a day off next month, just need to get up to 11.30 which is the max I can carry over to next month for flexi time off.

Wore far too many layers! Forgot to pack a tshirt to run in when I left home this morning so ended up with my thermal and sleeveless jacket (looked windy out). It was windy but really warm in the park!

Very windy out there and only at my back for a tiny section of the loop. All reps were slower than last week when although windy it was nothing compared to today! Was almost brought to a standstill in a few sections. Tempo section was 4seconds slower this week but the heart rate average and max were also lower. Struggling to get up to any bit of a half decent clip for the 1min repeats with the wind.
Legs still carrying some of the weekend in them and the bump on my shin has nearly gone down fully now which is good news.

Leinster League #5 - Carrick Mountain
Decision made this morning to travel to this, looked more likely to go for a jog and watch the race in the park. No real time for breakfast so just stuffed something quick in and out the door to meet the Donaghys. Wet, windy foggy day in Wicklow but it wasnt too bad once you were moving. I probably wore 1 layer too many. Confused by all the rides heading to 5 and missed my junction losing about 1 minute looking at the GPS trace. Small time loss on the start of the long leg when I decided to take the trail as supposed to straight through the fell. Shane had caught up at this stage and we pushed on over the top both taking the same route for the most part. I went low to 12 and got a gap but picked a safe and easy running route which turns out to have been to far around and lost time. Tough climb from 16 back up over near the top to go to 18. Nice time in the forest even if it was pretty green and grotty for the most part
