Harvester A Race, Leg 4
So I'm not very good at night orienteering! Probably because I do it about once a year. I wasn't quite confident enough to push hard, I was too scared to make a big mistake. Also, felt pretty crappy at 3 in the morning!
Started OK, but a fairly big mistake on 8 made me lose confidence a bit. I tried to follow the small paths into the control, but they were all over the place. At 9 I didn't use my compass well and ended up at the other gaffle (which was apparently on nothing...). OK through the next couple and back across the motorway, but lost quite a bit of time at 19 (whole area was marked as white, but it was an absolute crawl to get around with zero visibility). Then another wobble on the second last one, there was one thicket mapped, but just shit everywhere on the ground, which made it impossible to read.
Pretty terrible vegetation mapping - and since there were almost no contours on the map, there wasn't much more than paths and vegetation to go off. Bit frustrating, but I do struggle with these kind of maps, even during the day.
Anyway, SYO won the handicap, so that's pretty good.
Jogging warm up/down 10:01  1.69 km (5:56 / km) +23m 5:33 / km
Sleep number 2. Wasn't going to go back to bed, but glad I did.
rhr:49 slept:6.0 (rest day)
Work all day, travel to Harvester all arvo, so didn't get a session in.
Jogging 1:10:52  12.58 km (5:38 / km) +363m 4:55 / km
Two peaks runs in one week! This one from Ladybower up Win Hill, along the ridge and back along the path along the reservoir, with Mary, Tenty, Alex and Dan from run group. Win Hill is another first for me!
Gorgeous day and nice chilled pace, felt OK but did fall off the pace a bit at the end. Also took two not very impressive stacks and now have scrapes on my elbow, both knees, thigh and two swollen hands. The second one I wasn't even running!
rhr:49 slept:7.5 (rest day)
Wanted a day off running, bike still in the shop, meant to swim but too nervous cramming for the exam tomorrow.
Jogging 2:04:41  22.54 km (5:32 / km) +561m 4:55 / km
Run up to Headstone with Joe, Tenty and Nicola, up via the top path and back down the valley. I hadn't been to Headstone before so that was cool.
It was a beautiful day, but this just ruined me. I started off not feeling great, and by the end I was suffering so much that I had to walk quite a bit. I let the boys go at the bottom of the valley, and Nicola and I split in Crookes, and then I actually felt so bad that I had to jog / walk downhill home.
Jogging 50:35  9.39 km (5:23 / km) +213m 4:50 / km
Still feeling very tired so decided to give track a miss. Went for a gorgeous run with some of the ShUOC crew around Froggatt Edge, Curbar and White Edge. I'd never run that route before, it was so nice. Very windy but otherwise warm. Definitely struggled on the hills, sore ankles preferred the slightly softer surface.
Jogging 42:21  7.16 km (5:55 / km) +171m 5:17 / km
Social Run Group to Norfolk Park. Reeeeallly sore ankles / feet. Very tired.
