Long, but uninspiring, run around Sheffield's finest terrain. From home, out to Kelham Island, Attercliffe, round Meadowhall, to Wicker, then another loop round to Meadowhall, back to Kelham island, another lap around Kelham island and home.
Tried to keep the pace honest and it felt very easy to start with (found out that this was because there was a strong wind blowing me up to Meadowhall) and interspersed it with 3 x 20 minutes of 3 minutes on 1 minute off.
Struggled against the wind (and the tiredness in my legs) in the last 30 minutes. Left hamstring started to tighten towards the end.
Run from gym up the parks and back to work. The paths were really icy still - saw 2 walkers stack it as I was running and I nearly went down twice but luckily my cat like reflexes kicked in
In the gym. Heaving today and was not surprised to find that the squat bar was already being occupied when I went upstairs. Luckily it was Camel who was squatting and he let me join him (now there is a picture). Rest of the session was uneventful but solid nonetheless.
Tempo training. Track was too snowy, didn't fancy running on the grass so went for a fast session on the roads. Tried to take it controlled and steady. Forgot my watch but luckily map my run came to my rescue (OJ will be relieved).
