Running 55:51 [4] 11.67 km (4:47 / km) +176m 4:27 / km
shoes: Brookes Ravenna 8

Eastville park, fishponds, oldbury court , frenchay, home. Got slightly confused south of the river early on. Many places I still don't know round here.

slightly annoying LH thigh - bothered me a bit on tuesday too. Not sure why - seems a bit random.

last 2-3 km seemed quite tempo-ey. Sadly, as i eased right off , after 11km (had planned 11km tempo), I became very uncomfortable & barely got back "in time".

Still v tired - think the flat renovations etc are all taking their toll on me. But my running pace suggests I'm on track.

Another one in the bag anyway.

Note
(rest day)

Saw Physio for knackered LH shoulder - seemed good. No worries re. climbing.

Slept again in Clifton flat; full on day at flat. Kitchen done; bathroom nearly done; several errands etc

Anyone who has a physical job *and* is a fully trained runner/O-er has my admiration - I couldn't do it.

Mind you, I'm very old.

Running 40:01 [4] 8.23 km (4:52 / km) +131m 4:30 / km
shoes: Brookes Ravenna 8

Set out for an easy 4 miles (Pur Down/Stoke Park), but things felt OK - even did a proper segment attempt. 5 miles.

Stiff etc, but otherwise good sign of recovery from Sunday's massive effort.

Geeks may like to see the leaderboard on the segment. https://www.strava.com/segments/16084755?filter=ov...

Slept at Clifton flat again (blissfully quiet); kitchen & bathroom now both ripped out. Moving a load of scrap kitchen debris down & out to car / tip. Back hurts.

Running race 45:55 [5] 9.2 km (4:59 / km) +401m 4:06 / km
shoes: VJ Integrators

Nailsea Runners' Ironwood challenge, 9.2km, off road mudbath. 5th place.
Had saved myself for this, only doing Blue course steadily yesterday.

Started sensibly (chatting to B&W guys Andy Malloy & Paul Jefferson) but dismayed as the leaders & about 20 others seemed to be gone. Ooops. Accelerated & moved thru up first big hill.. Eventually catching Jane Faram, my club's star woman who is on v good form on the roads & was looking good here too.

Foolishly passed her after about 3km, & had totally dropped Andy Malloy & Paul J too . Counted the guys in front of me - oh shit , I'm now 5th!!! What on EARTH was I thinking? Up the long road drag, all the way from the bottom to the top, i was feeling ghastly puffing & panting away at over 5mins/km, but not losing any places or gaps opening, so stuck at it. At the top, things reverted to normal and I felt good, catching the guy in 4th - but to be fair, I'd had enough by now & never tried to beat him. Turned out he was a Vet45 - he looked v young from behind!!!! Lots of techy descents & my VJ dobs delivered - awesome.

45 seconds quicker than Mark B last year , but his run is, of course, *intrinsically* superior, due to worse mud then.

1st Vet50, bottle of plonk. Smiles all round. No injuries. Great!

Orienteering race 51:56 [3] 7.67 km (6:46 / km) +218m 5:56 / km
shoes: VJ Integrators

NGOC League, Bixslade, Blue course 6.2km/ 245m 1st/28 51:56

Only did Blue as have a (tough) straight running race tomorrow, wasn't going to go but then Owain asked if we could share transport.

Enjoyable. Just jogging / walking hills early on. Weird fence to no 2 - 30 secs? stopped too short no 3 (map a bit remiss) - 20 secs. Went in too early no 6 - 30 secs. Course became Orange standard near the end, due they said, to having to replan the end at the last minute. Used thumb compass, which was nice, but not ready to trust it in a big event. It doesn't sit on my map.

Very pleasant, almost spring like day out. Owain struggled on the Brown. Good practice for him!

I live in Bristol. I have three hobbies: Running/ Orienteering, Rock climbing, and guitar playing (I'm in a function band, upthefunctio.co.uk). I'm also in SPOOK. I work sometimes freelance at Lloyds bank in Bristol but mostly retired really. I'm generally fit these days, though suffer from variable health, I have Polands' Syndrome, and had M.E./CFS from age 33 - 40 (43 for purposes of sport). I also had major surgery on my upper intestines in 2017. I love music & travel, and mountaineering.
