A few quick kilometers; does not really qualify as speed work (all splits run in lane 2). Brief AF after 2000m - looks like (lack of) life is catching up...

13.7km - 1:18

05 Jan 2007

Running:
13.5km - 1:26

Had planned to do the first 30km run this year, but conditions were pretty crazy: ice, snow, mud, water and KM splits between 6:00 and 7:30 (!) made it more a cross-country run than anything else.

Left hamstring is playing up again, so will give it some rest which is a frustrating.

Went to see the proper cross-country runners at the Belfast International XC at Stormont.

03 Jan 2008

Gym: 45 mins

Rowing: 2000m - 7:58

Still no luck with the AF...

02 Jan 2008

Running:
14.6km - 1:20

Moderate speed with a couple of kms at 5 mins. Cold and windy.

First run with the King of Hearts Express cardiac event recorder, courtesy of the NHS. This is now attached to this box by 2 leads for 2 weeks with the objective to have an atrial flutter...
