(rest day)

So still not 100%. If I am honest with myself I know that I have not been feeling great during the last week. Every morning for the last week when I have struggling to get going and it means that I am not fully recovered and recuperated. The cold I have picked up is taking me a lot longer to shift it then it would do when I am fully fit and healthy.

Am going to run into work tomorrow to see if I can trigger the arrhythmia so that I can get it scanned at the hospital. Then I am going to take the rest of the week easy, only running when I rate myself as an 8/10 in the morning.

Still dreaming about next season which is still a long way off. Going to enjoy spending some time plugging in the English and British champs races in the diary. First priority is getting myself fit and healthy.

Been keeping myself busy and just finished Brain Training for Runners by Mat Fitzgerald which is interesting and thought provoking and chimes with my thoughts on running (and Paul F's philosophical musings). It has some nice schedules which I will pick some bits and pieces from.

10 AM

Cycling 45:12 intensity: (8:43 @0) + (36:29 @1) +313m
ahr:114 max:137

Cycling out to Graves Park. After all these years still not sure of the best way to the cafe. Ended up going direct through the park, all the leaves on the paths made traction and balance interesting. Only had to unclip once.

Orienteering 50:00 [1] 5.0 mi (10:00 / mi) +273m 8:33 / mi
ahr:124 max:225

Hanging controls for the afternoon's running event. Running very slowly (with controls) but heart started playing up about 10 minutes in. Really strange as this time the first I became aware of it was running down hill.Still been getting over the fag end of a cold and so maybe immune system low?

Things sorted themselves out pretty quickly once I got back to the car park.

11 AM

Cycling 40:00 [2]

Cycle home (HR graph on orienteering bit).

Felt fine on the cycle home and felt much better within myself. As a bit of an experiment I pushed it on a couple of the hills to see if I could trigger arrhythmia by myself but I couldn't. If I wasn't so pissed off this would all be quite interesting from a sports physiological perspective.

Easy session in gym. Glutes really sore so left the squats alone.

7 PM

Running 40:00 [1] 5.0 mi (8:00 / mi)

Easy torchlight run from home. Ran without a heart rate monitor and feeling ok. Listened to marathon talk and Paul F's session on the philosophy of running session got a good mention.
