Sunday Jul 1 #

7 AM

Path/Terrain 37:00 [2] 5.65 km (6:33 / km) +293m 5:12 / km
shoes: Salomon Sense Pro 2 (2018)

Easy
Early one up Goach and Scolty. Again with Kirsty and walking the downhills. Over 20c and before 8am. Saw an attempted forest fire ignition site with 2 fire engines just leaving as we finished. Clearly not an accident as a very strange location at the base of a tree and well off any path or camping spot (steep slope). Some people need to find something to do with their lives, or a jail sentence.

7 PM

Path/Terrain 47:15 [2] 9.56 km (4:57 / km) +59m 4:48 / km
shoes: Salomon Sense Pro 2 (2018)

Easy
With Paul round Sands of Forvie after getting very lost on the drive over. Nice evening weather and fun trails as always. Paths getting a bit overgrown these days though. Nice to catch up properly and good to see him running properly again in general.

9 AM

Path/Terrain 43:45 intensity: (23:45 @2) + (20:00 @3) 5.28 km (8:17 / km) +642m 5:09 / km
shoes: Salomon Sense Pro 2 (2018)

Steady Climb
Up Morven at a good pace with Kirsty (Banchory friend). Struggling to keep up most of the time and think we were hitting a good pace had it been the race. Stunning views and tops off weather. Walked back down after as her knees are bad. Then little climb up Burn O'Vat and a long swim to the island at Loch Kinord after. Water very warm, perhaps the warmest I've felt in Scotland.

Path/Terrain 15:00 [2] 2.0 km (7:30 / km) +80m 6:15 / km
shoes: Salomon Sense Pro 2 (2018)

5 PM

Road intervals 24:48 intensity: (19:48 @3) + (5:00 @5) 6.31 km (3:56 / km) +64m 3:45 / km
shoes: Salomon Sense Pro 2 (2018)

Steady + (5*1min, 1 every 1km)
Nice little run to get the legs moving again. Felt fine to keep the pace (both steady and interval) but still a bit phlegmy. Roasting outside and bypass seemed almost set to go.

shoes: Salomon Sense Pro 2 (2018)

Ante
Chilled, back in Aberdeen. More phlegmy than yesterday but still not bad. Quite a chilly morning. Threw in some strides after half way.

Path/Terrain 48:30 [2] 10.06 km (4:49 / km) +206m 4:22 / km
shoes: Salomon Sense Pro 2 (2018)

Easy
Nice one with Paul in North Kirkhill. Haven't been there in years and it's got some very cool trails. Good catching up and appreciated some company. Feet getting tired of the same pair of shoes so may have to change tomorrow.

6 AM

Path/Terrain 41:23 [2] 8.35 km (4:57 / km) +150m 4:33 / km
shoes: Salomon Sense Marin

Ante
A very early one. Still over 20c outside already. Chest allowed for a morning run which was nice, although eating an orange before going seemed to help clear things. Had a go at one of Emil's segments but screwed it up. Had a second go and apparently screwed it up again as Strava didn't pick it up. All that wasted energy. Fast pace hilariously at marginal sub-4s these days. Hopefully an interval session next week will fix this back to normal (as they normally do at the moment). In this scenario the illness came at the perfect time before the bigger summer comps.

Travelling home later for the weekend.

Road 9:07 [2] 1.84 km (4:57 / km)
shoes: Salomon Sense Pro 2 (2018)

ITW
Still can't breath in the morning so straight to work for the time being. Bought antihistamines so should help, think there was some hayfever mixed in with my cold.

3 PM

Road 10:00 [2] 1.82 km (5:30 / km) +78m 4:32 / km
shoes: Salomon Sense Pro 2 (2018)

HFW
Anticipating the Sweden match, met with a pure spectacle.

5 PM

Orienteering 1:18:50 intensity: (38:50 @2) + (30:00 @3) + (10:00 @4) 10.02 km (7:52 / km) +297m 6:51 / km
shoes: VJ Bold (2017)

Easy/Steady O
Guttersrod Long-style WOC 2019 training course. Beautiful terrain and undergrowth not too bad. Very hot though and got quite thirsty. Fredrik caught me up towards the end and we did some good orienteering together at a higher pace. Cough allowing for it and even less noticeable than yesterday. Should be fine. Orienteering well with barely any mistakes, except questionable RCs (lazy to do anything but dead straight today). Perhaps just because of the slow pace but better than usual nonetheless.

Long Easy
Again with Will and Hakon on reverse Monday loop, featuring TWO swims. Really nice, good chat and time flew by in the stunning scenery. Water very warm and nice to have a break every now and then, including the clubhut for a drink. Cough going slowly day by day.
