Into work and back at easy pace, low gear up the hills on the way home. Nice active recovery. On the way in to work Sullivan Square was closed as a truck had turned over on the curve. From a distance I could see a bike wheel sticking out of the wrecking and my stomach sank, only to realise when I got closer that the truck was in fact a scrap metal truck, and the bike was scrap. Phew.

Yesterday was my "long" session so today I did the brown. Good choice, the contours at Great Brook are really good but the running is a little rougher. I had some moments where I was moving well today, and some where I was struggling. I totally minced the river crossing. Nice afternoon with the juniors and then some errand running. All good. Really enjoyed two orienteering sessions in a weekend, my brain is already feeling sharper, even if my legs aren't. I'm going to treat this 6 week DD as a base, and then add an intervals session in I think for the next set.

Glad that DD was short today - didn't want to do it at all really! Did Peak, first round with 15#, then the next two with 10# as my left side was much worse than my right.

Prospect Hill. My legs were lead but I still loved being out in the woods. A couple of really silly mistakes, and walked up the big hills. One mistake going too far right on the high route to number 9 sent me past bathrooms, for which I was very grateful!
Into work then along the river to Barb's. The dual use cycle path right next to the sole use pedestrian path drives me insane. The runners in the middle with their headphones on. It should be a separate path for each. There's two right there! ARGH!

My first gossip run in I don't know how long! It was great! Warm out again - boo! Despite the DOMS the movement came easy - a pleasant surprise.
