Intervals 32:04 intensity: (16 @0) + (29 @1) + (24 @2) + (16:54 @3) + (14:01 @4) 5.72 km (5:36 / km) +62m 5:19 / km
ahr:170 max:188 shoes: Shiny red Sauconys

Gip.is session. They love their short intervals. Ran the rests fast-ish too to make them more like Foxdals. 7 sets of 50 seconds on, 90 seconds off. It was warm and quite hard. Stiff from yesterday's strength too. Followed by the Nairn lab kosher picnic and a walk up Sleeping Giant. A very pleasant evening after a productive day of writing.

Recovery 43:01 intensity: (1:02 @0) + (12:14 @1) + (29:30 @2) + (15 @3) 5.51 km (7:49 / km) +32m 7:35 / km
ahr:136 max:152 shoes: Shiny red Sauconys

HR run of the magic length. My HRM is working again!

Cross Fit 41:08 intensity: (7:59 @0) + (2:50 @1) + (4:21 @2) + (22:27 @3) + (3:31 @4)
ahr:150 max:176

Super hardcore Freeletics workout. A bit more than I had planned for my easy day really.

6 PM

Long run 1:46:46 intensity: (1:19 @0) + (4:29 @1) + (29:03 @2) + (59:56 @3) + (11:59 @4) 16.1 km (6:38 / km) +177m 6:17 / km
ahr:155 max:183 shoes: Shiny red Sauconys

Ended up working the whole day in the lab today and still wanted to get the run in. Decided to start slow and just see if I could keep going to the plan, and I managed. Felt much better after twenty minutes and actually enjoyed it.

Was thinking about that study a couple of months ago about high performing men pretending to work 80 hours. 80 hours is insane. I did 53 this week and it's true that most of these 80 hours jobs aren't on their feet like mine. But it was totally exhausting on all levels.

This week I'm going to stay at home a bunch to write and it should be easier. I hope!

After a ton of washing it looks like my HRM actually worked today!

Running 29:06 intensity: (46 @0) + (14 @1) + (41 @2) + (9:32 @3) + (14:24 @4) + (3:29 @5) 5.07 km (5:45 / km) +20m 5:38 / km
ahr:174 max:193 shoes: Shiny red Sauconys

I did a running thing!

I definitely need to replace my HRM. That felt harder than it should have but not 3 minutes in level 5 hard!

Cross Fit 19:18 intensity: (5:06 @0) + (5:37 @1) + (4:00 @2) + (4:35 @3) +1m
ahr:131 max:162

Then Freeletics. I was too good at these short workouts and it took me back up to long ones again for next week. Stupid thing.

Cycling 40:00 [1]

Finally finished week of toughness. One more experiment to go on Sunday. Cycled home completely beat. Struggling to switch off my brain now.

Wednesday Jun 24, 2015 #

Note

Even when I purposefully try to work less hard I fail. This week is turning into a long drag. I can see myself putting weight back on! Argh! Next week? It's always next week. Frustrating. Keep on cycling I guess.

Pre Scottish Six Day warm up training plan ideas - go! Not quite had the slow build I was wanting.

Cycling 25:00 [1]

Cycled in, too late to cycle out. Bah humbug.

Tuesday Jun 23, 2015 #

Cycling 1:10:00 [1]

No time to do anything other than cycle anywhere today. At least I did that today!

The storm in the mid afternoon was totally awesome.

2 PM

Orienteering 14:52 intensity: (6 @0) + (7 @1) + (23 @2) + (3:02 @3) + (10:08 @4) + (1:06 @5) 1.71 km (8:41 / km) +57m 7:27 / km
ahr:179 max:191 shoes: Integrators 5000

I went off first for Team Becky & Ed, and was mostly good, except a big hesitation and wander around at number 5. Bizarrely, AP thinks I lost no time here, but that is a lie.

Aside from that orienteering okay, but running fast was extremely tough - struggling to breathe in the humidity. Felt awful on finishing but recovered okay and figured it was just a shock going from a weekend of fun chill out in Brooklyn to sprint O in the heat.

Orienteering 13:58 intensity: (1 @1) + (15 @2) + (1:17 @3) + (9:02 @4) + (3:23 @5) 1.93 km (7:14 / km) +15m 6:58 / km
ahr:183 max:195 shoes: Integrators 5000

Didn't run as fast in the second one but also didn't make much in the way of mistakes - a few small hesitations on exactly how to leave the track, but pretty much smooth. Didn't feel like I couldn't breathe this time, but didn't feel amazing either.

Really enjoyed the pleasant afternoon of chat and food afterwards - we should all hang out at Charlie's more often!

Wednesday Jun 17, 2015 #

6 PM

Running 23:28 intensity: (4:04 @0) + (33 @1) + (2:59 @2) + (9:51 @3) + (6:01 @4) 4.16 km (5:39 / km) +39m 5:24 / km
ahr:149 max:182

Almost failed to run today but then chose run instead of ice cream and was proud of myself.
7 PM

Cross Fit 3:13 [0]

Short freeletics - much better, no burpees :)

Tuesday Jun 16, 2015 #

Cycling 35:00 [1]

Cycled home but didn't get the time to do anything else.

Monday Jun 15, 2015 #

8 AM

Running 23:01 intensity: (50 @0) + (29 @1) + (21 @2) + (19:11 @3) + (2:10 @4) 3.18 km (7:15 / km) +1m 7:14 / km
ahr:161 max:181 shoes: Shiny red Sauconys

Tried to do a HR run but my HRM most definitely needs replacing as it just kept creeping up and up. It was damp and cool and reminded me of home.

Cross Fit 19:17 intensity: (3:36 @0) + (4:13 @1) + (2:54 @2) + (8:34 @3) +2m
ahr:140 max:175

Bah, too many burpees again.
10 AM

Cycling 35:00 [1]

Soggy trip into work.

Running 20:01 intensity: (20 @0) + (40 @1) + (3:17 @2) + (15:44 @3) 3.33 km (6:01 / km) +26m 5:47 / km
ahr:153 max:168 shoes: Shiny red Sauconys

Turn round the neighbourhood after a day out at State Parks and wine tasting. The wine was BAD but the idea was excellent.

Saturday Jun 13, 2015 #

7 PM

Running 20:01 intensity: (2 @0) + (15 @1) + (27 @2) + (15:14 @3) + (4:03 @4) 3.54 km (5:39 / km) +29m 5:26 / km
ahr:171 max:178 shoes: Shiny red Sauconys

Finally cooled off in the evening so I took a turn round the neighbourhood.

Cross Fit 13:01 intensity: (5:01 @0) + (2:48 @1) + (14 @2) + (2:37 @3) + (2:21 @4)
ahr:134 max:180

Final freeletics for the week. 90 seconds of easy stuff then 50 burpees. Still takes me a while.

Friday Jun 12, 2015 #

9 PM

Running 20:02 intensity: (18 @0) + (10 @1) + (4:09 @2) + (15:25 @3) 3.31 km (6:03 / km) +32m 5:46 / km
ahr:154 max:171 shoes: Shiny red Sauconys

Ian jog (TM) after a really fun evening at the Yale Summer Cabaret. Excellent show. Jog suffered slightly from post ice cream-ness. No interesting animals to report.

Thursday Jun 11, 2015 #

5 PM

Tempo run 20:00 intensity: (1:08 @0) + (29 @1) + (42 @2) + (8:12 @3) + (7:24 @4) + (2:05 @5) 3.55 km (5:38 / km) +35m 5:22 / km
ahr:169 max:196 shoes: Shiny red Sauconys

Short run with 3 x 3 (1) mins tempo. HRM seemed to be behaving, then didn't go back down after rep 2. Soak it again tonight I think. This was hard, today was the first proper humid summer's day that I have trained in.

Cross Fit 11:52 intensity: (2 @0) + (3:47 @2) + (5:22 @3) + (2:41 @4) 0.3 km (39:33 / km) +1m 38:54 / km
ahr:159 max:185 shoes: Shiny red Sauconys

A bit of Metis action on Observatory Hill.

Cross Fit 12:41 intensity: (3:31 @0) + (2:43 @1) + (34 @2) + (4:19 @3) + (1:34 @4)
ahr:141 max:180 shoes: Shiny red Sauconys

Then 50 burpees and stretchy time at home.

Note

Had a lovely time in Maine. Apart from the driving days we were walking at an easy pace the whole time, and I slept for around 15 hours on one of the nights. Was awake without an alarm at 7.30 this morning, for the first time in a long time.
8 AM

Running 20:02 intensity: (16 @0) + (4 @1) + (10 @2) + (4:08 @3) + (9:36 @4) + (5:48 @5) 3.7 km (5:25 / km) +19m 5:16 / km
ahr:181 max:199 shoes: Shiny red Sauconys

Ran towards work. Didn't feel amazing, but not as bad as HRM thinks it was! Think it must be broken :(

Cross Fit 33:40 intensity: (4:21 @0) + (4:14 @1) + (13:50 @2) + (10:10 @3) + (1:05 @4) 1.84 km (18:20 / km) +2m 18:14 / km
ahr:142 max:178 shoes: Shiny red Sauconys

Short Freeletics workout. I got them to reset my fitness test so I can do shorter sessions, this was only 6 minutes tough activity with prep and stretching.

Wednesday Jun 3, 2015 #

Note

Got that horrible stuffed nose and weird taste at the back of my mouth now. Hopefully a few relaxing days in Maine is exactly what I need to get back on track.

Tuesday Jun 2, 2015 #

6 PM

Recovery 20:02 intensity: (9:11 @0) + (6:22 @1) + (2:06 @2) + (2:23 @3) 2.58 km (7:46 / km) +10m 7:37 / km
ahr:123 max:158

Intermittently horrible day today that ended okay. Had a recovery shuffle after, HRM started making sense after about 5 mins.
