5 PM

Running 1:05:00 [1] 12.3 km (5:17 / km)
shoes: Mizuno Alchemy 9 (July 10)

Planned on doing a 4x4min session but was feeling like crap. Probably from yesterday's ski, which may have been harder than intended and perhaps from the flu shot, which if not physically a factor, then definitely mentally. In any case, legs felt like lead, and was super tired. Decided to just slog it out for an hour.

Happy new year!

morning spin at Mooneys. Conditions were pretty terrible in general, although the upper track was ok. Skied around in circles for the most part, working on technique a bit.

Did half the training at the 400m indoor dome at Louis Riel HS. Really fun, and nice to run in shorts. The intense Lion's runners were scary though.

Finished it off with an 800m interval. After 100m I could feel my legs were insanely heavy, so it was tough to get through this. Think I can go under 2:10 fresh. ;)

Running 50:45 [3] 11.4 km (4:27 / km)
ahr:152 max:172 shoes: Salomon Speed Cross 2 (Nov 10)

Wanted to do intervals on a long gradual hill, so ran over to the arboretum. Went hard up the southern pathway, and easy back down the northern path to complete the loop. About 400m up, and 235m back down. Did 18 (!) loops to complete the prescribed 7km of intensity. Session went on forever, and I was quite cold by the end. I think I underestimated how long it would take me, and somewhat neglected all the time and distance from the recovery alone.

All times were between 1:28-1:34. Recovery was 1:15 on average.

Before shaving it I felt the need to document the progress made. And yes, this is me trying to show off my iron ring.

7x1km, 3min rest

Felt ok, hard to push really hard in the dark on an unknown loop by yourself. Fun loop though, got quite used to it by the end. Seems to be about 90m long. About 10m of climb per loop.
