Sunday May 27 #

12 PM

Running long 2:59:00 [3] 29.6 km (6:03 / km) +1920m 4:34 / km
shoes: VJ iRock #2

Key session ahead of WLDMRC in 4wks time: double Snowdon. Almost thwarted by thunderstorms, fortunately there was enough of a gap between morning and afternoon storms to squeeze this in.

The main aim was to get used to climbing on legs that have just done a fast 900m descent, hence I used the 'boring' Llanberis path for both climbs. Didn't descend as fast as hoped but still found the second climb tough, so hopefully this did some good!

The second descent was a bit faster, which I'm putting down to the surge of adrenaline I got from being tripped up by a walker's flailing wizard stick just after the summit. Arms and elbows fairly battered and bruised but only surface damage - it could have been a lot worse.

Really nice loop on the Carneddau range. Great to explore some new hills!

Running 1:26:00 [3] 20.0 km (4:18 / km)
shoes: ASICS gel Luminous #2 (Blue)

Grantchester loop, with T for company on bike for a bit, then 4x2km tempo on the busway. Pace about 3:17/km, fairly happy with that. 60-90s recovery.

8 PM

Running 37:00 [3] 8.0 km (4:38 / km)
shoes: ASICS gel Luminous #2 (Blue)

Short one after getting back from Bristol. Legs felt ok for more but decided to freshen up and then go for it over the weekend.

Running 50:30 [3] 8.4 km (6:01 / km) +480m 4:41 / km
shoes: inov8 f-lite 195 #1

In Bristol again. Managed to forget my road shoes so was limited to what I could do in the track shoes I'd left in London. Hill reps wasn't the plan for the day after track but they worked out ok. 30 mins of solid effort on the zigzag path to the Clifton bridge. (6ups,5dns)
Legs feeling surprisingly ok

Tuesday May 22 #

6 PM

Running 1:23:00 [3] 16.6 km (5:00 / km)
shoes: inov8 f-lite 195 #1

5*1000m off 75s. Breezy so taking turns in the lead. 2:59 felt ok till the 4th when suddenly legs felt pretty heavy. Did another to help the boys through halfway then scuttled off to do hill sprints. Parli hill isn't really steep enough though and the track banking isn't long enough.

Monday May 21 #

6 PM

Running 1:17:30 [3] 18.5 km (4:11 / km)
shoes: ASICS gel Luminous #2 (Blue)

Haslington and the radio telescope loop. Decent pace, picked it up at the end.
