Friday Apr 28 #

steady run 2:05:00 [3]

With S, Big Birse track, across diagonal below Can Ferg, up Brackenstake, across church road, along to Lamahip big, long climb in heather :-( then small track towards descent to Glen cat road, S slowed on reaching road and easy return from there (though glad as my legs were feeling fairly shot by this stage).
Right leg/groin was a wee bit tweaky at start but eased off quickly. Felt various niggles near end and tight back on heathery descents. Need to keep going with stratching.

stretching 5:00 [1]

Various stretches as before.

Thursday Apr 27 #

steady run 1:45:00 [3]

With B west of Aboyne - along Deeside Way to west, then up track near Dinner to north and swung back in middle of hills - lovely views and some great old abandoned crofts and farms- would make superb holiday places... Back into NW corner of Balnagowan and through track in wood.
Leg mostly OK - trying to keep right hip up and forward and found that tightening the core muscles slightly was helpful. Did a few sprints up hills and managed to keep form.

stretching 10:00 [1]

Lots of groin stretching and hamstring work. Seems to be working bit.

Wednesday Apr 26 #

orienteering race 21:17 [5]

Forest Sprint, Dunnottar Woods. Decent warm-up but right leg still feeling a bit handicapped - not moving smoothly and a bit slow.
Anyway started race and went as hard as possible - limited on a few downs and the longer flat sections. Mostly clean orienteering, a bit hesitant in approaching and leaving some controls but no major errors.
Managed to bear E by 2 seconds... phew :-)

steady run warm up/down 10:00 [3]

Bit of jogging and some strides and drills.

stretching 10:00 [1]

Stretching of right hip/thigh. Doing physic exercises and some shoulder bridges etc. Seemed to help get muscles firing but groin a little niggly on some of the stretches - probably showing its the right place to work.

Tuesday Apr 25 #

steady run 48:00 [3]

Deeside Runners (first time in a long while). Planned to do some speed but right shin muscle cramped up on warm-up so abandoned that plan and did a steady 2 bridges circuit with S. Tried a few strides but right leg not cooperating.
Seems like 2 steps forward 1 step back just now, frustrated.

Monday Apr 24 #

steady run 12:00 [3]

Hill of Banchory wee loop. Leg feeling OK.

Pilates 1:00:00 [1]

Resistance band work plus wobble cushion- nice :-)

steady run 18:00 [3]

Collecting orphan control form yesterday, plus did about a dozen surges - leg felt surprisingly good, a few twinges in groin on later sprints but nothing bad. First speed work for a long time!
