Orienteering (East Mids Sprint Champs A) 8:02 [3] 1.4 km (5:44 / km) +25m 5:16 / km

Really really really wanted to go the the Lakes but had to be in Birmingham on Saturday night. Thought a 6hr round trip would be a bit excessive for a short day's training. Dave Schorah sorted us out though with the East Midland Sprint Champs at Abbotsholme Schl nr Rocester. Simple 2 short sprint courses format, taken in any order, cumulative time format.

Quite a lot going on. Had to concentrate. Pretty smooth round the first one.

Orienteering (B Course) 9:09 [3] 1.5 km (6:06 / km) +30m 5:33 / km

Trickier. More route-choice. Was definitely not concentrating on orienteering fast, just running fast, and didn't give myself time to pick the best routes :-( but still just nicked ahead of Shminty. Really good event, very pleased I went!

Running (Edale semi-skyline) 2:00:00 [3]

Out of Edale village north, not quite remembering that BUOT route Dave/Ralph took us on one time. Then just along the edge round to Brown Knoll (not the nicest running I've ever done, in heavy mist) but faffed at Jacob's Ladder not remembering the right way. On to Rushup Edge and Mam Tor. Wasn't sure where I was meant to drop off the ridge but did a bit before Lose Hill and landed perfectly on the Noe diversion dam to cross the river. Back along the road to Edale.

Running (Hathersage) 30:00 [3]

Hills on Coggers Lane. 8 (or 9) from the left-hand bend to the second tree after the de-limiter sign. Followed by two from the T-junction at the bottom to the ~6th tree, which is actually quite far. Walk down recoveries to save the knees and practice using the glutes. Shoulder much better today with some pain during running but not too bad. Though it would be too irresponsible to go high into the dark/ mist with no headtorch, map, waterproof. Should have the afternoon in the Peaks tomorrow if anyone wants a run or lift out there....

Right shoulder is pretty screwed. Hurts a lot of the time. Might be the first result when you search "collar pain" on Google. Unhappy.

Strength & Conditioning (Hot Yoga) 45:00 [3]

With some ST people. Managed to find my core and some controlled breathing but my abs were keen to help very early. Don't know what I did but right shoulder was really ache-y after and thought about pulling over!


Had planned to go for my first session on Wolverhampton Wheelers' velodrome but my shoulder was distracting and they started early on rollers (dodgy!) indoors as it was freezing and misty outside. So just had a watch and quick chat instead, next week hopefully.
