Strength and Conditioning 40:00 [3]
shoes: Aasics Gel-Fuji Racer (Blue)

Stretching.
No warm up because all the bikes and treadmills were full, and they've gotten rid of the rower from this gym. But I'd cycled in shortly enough before.

Back Squats 5 * 5 (60kg)
Split Squats 5 * 10 (each leg)
Plank 4 * 1min.

Gym was shockingly full again today. Missed a lecture because of how long I was queueing to get on to a weights stand.

Brown course on Arthur's Seat.
Was at the start, and wasn't really up for a race, decided to just run around. Felt slow, but not the worst apparently. Walked all the climbs really, and chilled around most of the rest. Nice area on top, but this course did get a bit repetitive.

Running 17:03 intensity: (2:46 @1) + (4:39 @2) + (5:58 @3) + (1:06 @4) + (2:34 @5) 2.36 km (7:13 / km) +50m 6:32 / km

Team jog back to the hostel, over the mountain this time. Nice little run.

Edinburgh City Race,
Cold at the start, otherwise not really sure how I was feeling. Got going though, and started alright, but a lot slower than James on number 1, for no real reason. Also had a miss on two, turned early, went into some olive green, backtracked, and went around, probably 20s or so.
Generally the race went reasonably well, and I was planning ahead well, but had a few issues. Took a worse route to 8, but it was worsened by the gatebeing locked and me having to climb a bigger gate than I've climbed in a long time. ~20-30s. Another mistake on 13, hitting an uncrossable wall. which just shouldn't be happening. ~15s. Number 16 as well I went up some small steps which turned out to be a dead end, bad loss, ~20-30s. To 27, in the really detailed area I found it hard to read, and took a small path slightly to early, and ended up looking down at it, and having to go around, ~15-20s. 28 I also lost a little concentration and turned a little early, but realised. 10s or so. Not sure about route to 32 either, the others went up, but I went down, was tiring on that uphill as well, had to work through.

Overall I thought it was better than it was in hindsight. More misses than I thought, but generally decent navigation. I was slow around the course, regularly just behind the others, but that would be refelective of the last two months. I do look forward to getting some more speed stuff in and getting a bit faster.

Will do some comparisons to last year, maybe tomorrow.

Easy jog around the Night Sprint in King's Buildings, Edinburgh University.
Getting my head into the map for tomorrow. Struggled to get planning early on, but hit the rhythym after 5-10mins or so.

Chilled around a few controls behind Conor O'Keeffe because he struggled a lot with this first run.

90mins easy.
90 minuter from college with lorrieq, so we headed out to Sandymount / Irishtown, and onto the lighthouse, then back. Took a little longer, because of the slow pace, but no worries.
Legs tired today, and some stomach issues, but not too bad. Rest day tomorrow before Edinburgh.
Good to have company today.

More stomach pains today and on this run down to rathfranham, after last night. Don't know what it is. Again, questionably high hr.

Running 20:43 intensity: (41 @1) + (1:05 @2) + (1:53 @3) + (8:03 @4) + (9:01 @5) 6.04 km (3:26 / km)
ahr:166 max:180 slept:2.0 shoes: Asics Gel-Fuji Fellrunner

Intervals - 6 * 1km
Down with Rathfarnham, it's been a while. With those stomach issues and me away from the speed for a while I wasn't sure how this would go. Running with a mixed group.
Times: 3:35, 3:19, 3:21, 3:24, 3:29, 3:31

The group ended up running mostly 3:30 - 3:35, despite it not feeling that slow.
Ran the first one just in front of them, when I saw the time I picked it up a bit and the next two were alright, I was finding it tough going though, and thought this pace would be tought to keep going. After 4, they were all finished (I arrived late, missed the first 2), so I was running solo, and this hampered my times further, despite having run solo essentially on the previous ones as I was ahead of them.
Found the session tough for what was relatively slow times. Not worried though, after the last month's training, back to some quick stuff was a nice change. And this session was a good ball-buster to get back on track. Plus, the whole not feeling great thing, but my stomach wasn't hurting much while I ran these.
Nice session ahead of the weekend.

Running 16:06 intensity: (1:08 @1) + (14:38 @2) + (20 @3) 2.81 km (5:44 / km)
ahr:134 max:147 shoes: Asics Gel-Fuji Fellrunner

Happened across Mike and Róisín on their way home, just as I was leaving, so jogged along while they cycled. Enjoyable.
