Shadowing Amy around the Easy course at John Curtin.
I didn't look at the map at all and kept thinking Amy must be going the wrong way because it seemed too complicated for an easy course but she was actually doing fine. The only time she went wrong was on 7 where she was going to go straight to it but I told her I didn't think that could be her control because I didn't think they would be sending the easy course out into the bushland. I then thought she must be going the wrong way on the next leg because I thought the only reason they would have had the control outside the gate at 7 would be because they needed to be that side of the uncrossable fence to get to 8 but she came back in and had the fastest split. Only other problem was on the finish where she just didn't seem to think she should have to look at the map to find it. I'm sure she could have gone a lot faster if she really treated it like a race.

Long course at John Curtin. Did this after shadowing Amy on the easy so I was a little familiar with the general layout of the area but I hadn't looked at the map at all and only really went around the outside so I don't think it helped much.
Had a pretty clean run, certainly wasn't making quick confident decisions and was a bit conservative with some of my routes but I did at least always make sure I had worked out a passable route and only a couple of minor hesitations on the execution. Felt very unfit, had to remind myself to keep running a few times when I was feeling a strong urge to stop and walk. Minor victory for the day was winning the finish split. Outside of left heel pretty sore most of the time.
Hit with Liam for a lot longer than I should have. Left heel really sore but it was fun for a while.

Training at JFNP. Walked and jogged around with some stops to check on Liam and search for missing tapes.

Sprint course. Tried to run this harder but made a little bit of a mistake on number 9. Ran about 540m up the track when it was only 240m to the control. Distracted by overtaking Carol and Lily and then reading the sign on the bridge as I ran past the control.

Easy run in KP with Rachel.
Quite sore behind left ankle starting out, very similar to Wednesday night. Just after entering KP we ran past a man (Alex?) walking his dog and I started feeling really good, springy and wanting to accelerate. I spent the next 5 minutes thinking about how much I would be enjoying this run if not for the pain, then it fairly suddenly stopped hurting at the back of the ankle and switched to the more usual mild pain down the outside of the foot which eased further throughout the run. I picked up the pace a bit when Rachel stopped at the Zamia toilets but unfortunately the springy feeling had largely worn off by then.

Easy run out to Sunset and back from Amy's art class at Tresillian.
Not really sore at all down the outside of the foot today but was more sore around the back of the ankle. Thought about stopping a few times but couldn't bring myself to do it. Felt fine as soon as I did stop but there was a lot of odd clunking going on in the ankle when I did a bit of stretching.

Easy run in KP late in the morning after a bit of a sleep in. Very little pain early on then started to feel it a bit around the outside of the left ankle then moving further down the outside of the left foot as the run progressed. More sore towards the toes on the uphill and towards the heel on flat/downhill but overall pretty good really. Felt a lot better than Friday afternoon.
