Bodyweight@session : n/a
Soreness : quads , glutes , chest, lats, traps (?)
Injuries/aches : none

RUN 8km @ 59'48''
That is season distance and duration  :personal-record:
Wanted to do this as a long easy slow recovery run. Goal pace was 7'30'' ( so duration 60' ) , got awesomely accurate at that ( 12'' faster lol ).
Kinda worked too, felt wrecked when i ended, but now ( next day ) legs feel very recovered.

Bodyweight@session : n/a
Soreness : mostly abductors , some chest, lats, quads, glutes
Injuries/aches : none

-RUN 3km @ 5'45'' average km pace
C1a: walk 300m
C1b: 300m hill sprint @ 90%
-C1 info : 4 rounds
-Slow jog the remaining ~400m to round it up to 6km

Total : 6km @ 41:58

Went out to do a 5K time trial. Was keeping the sub 6 pace comfortably lungs-wise but legs were too tired from squatting, around 2.5km quads started burning and abductors almost cramping.
Could push it but saw no reason to do so, switched plan, did 4 rounds of uphill tempos. That was probably more taxing but the walking recovery made it easier at the moment.
Abductors got even more sore afterwards, was actually limping and couldn't move my leg without pain. They are fine now ( next noon ). Why do my abductors get destroyed from squatting? Is it normal or am i doing something wrong.

RUN 6km @ 39:36

First time this season that it was kinda cool when running ( 24C/75F) and 'comfortable' km pace dropped to 6:30 despite not having run for 11 days.
Weather is affecting running much more than i thought , 24/75 vs 30/85 are different realms!!!

Wow, nice search engine by IAAF there.
Did a quick search. Since 1/1/2015 , the last 5 years that is with the current one being the 5th, only 4 times below 3:50 were registered, none of which was below 3:49.
15 times the last decade, none below 3:47.
Dunno, 3:43 seems like a few galaxies away.

Bodyweight@session : ?
Soreness : hamstrings, glutes, abs, lower back, chest, traps, lats, arms. wrecked!
Injuries/aches : none


RUN 7km @ 50:19

Doing 3 new exercises ( RDL-dips-chins ) after 2 months wrecked me. Everything was ultra sore, so this running workout had no hope of 'pushing'.
Treated it as blood-flow/recovery run instead, went slow-ish, just a tad slower than 'comfortable' which landed just over 7'/km.
Good news is that lungs felt very fresh the whole time, had very good breaths, it was only leg soreness that was holding me back, it felt like a level-up for this period.
