My theory on Orienteering training is that a little bit is a bad thing. If you go Orienteering and haven’t done it for ages, you expect to get lost so focus more. I’f you've done lots of training you are good. Doing a little bit makes you cocky, which is disastrous. So I stayed on queens drive for tonight’s run despite carrying a map, cause I didn’t want to make myself cocky for the weekend, when I haven’t been night Orienteering for over a year. This was mainly just to check my head torch worked, and I could read a map with it on. It worked. Ready to go for Saturday night!

Craiglockhart from work. Stressed. Average heart rate 179! Didn’t realise stress affected it that much. Usual average is 130-140. Need to find a new job.

Chirnside Borders xc league.
I hadn't done this one before, and it was a bit of an odd course, but I enjoyed it. Megan and I set off hard cause it got very narrow very quickly, and I was glad as we actually stopped at one point it was so congested. Jogged the second half a bit. I knew I had done enough to get 2nd w40 behind Megan, so let the first half of the race get the better of me. Probably last xc race of the season. Enjoyed XC much more this year, after some training. Some more training before next year and Megan is certainly beatable.

Gymnastics thingy. Have almost mastered all of the moves. It has only taken me the whole week.
Road running 23:36  3.15 mi (7:30 / mi)
5k at 8 min miling. A bit swift for me this early before I realised that we were 7min miling at the start so a bit quick. Kept running at the end to get in the shower and pack for going home.
We’re coming back next year apparently, Lucy has decided already.
Pleased my dodgy Achilles managed this. My dodgy knee seems to have cleared up tho.

Interlopers were running up to a volcano for breakfast. I took the kids in the car, parked nearby and walked the last mile or so up, as did Jase and Janine. Of our party only Laurencemade the true top - I think Hannah lacked enough ballast in the strong wind and Matthew and Lucy were not mad for it so we breakfasted up a less airy top. Fun trip, but I was v cold by the end of it.
Got back, and thought I should jog to warm my hands up. I set off hoping to see some interlopers, which I did, and my first thing in the morning sore left Achilles felt good so I kept going, and ended up at the top of the mountain. Fun. Didn’t really go for any paths on the way back, just enjoying the fun terrain until it got rocky at the bottom which was very slow. Good practice for orienteering though.
