Orienteering 1:15:41 [3] 10.22 km (7:24 / km) +160m 6:52 / km
ahr:140 max:164

Pre-running the Mytchett Mil League Brown course

Technically 7.9/190 but lots of circuitous routes making it a fair bit longer, as the forest went from ok to really grotty. That plus onset of tiredness & hunting for little orange tapes in undergrowth made the second half type 2 fun.

Decided to shadow Abi, which was fun although I struggled to keep up when she put her foot down.

The second online Torus Cup (Temp-O) started yesterday, if you have nothing better to do on Tuesdays and Thursdays in October.

They now have a Beginner version and an Advanced one - the former being pretty easy (but good if you haven't done much before) and the latter being stupidly hard.
4 PM

Running 1:02:59 [3] 12.76 km (4:56 / km) +166m 4:38 / km
ahr:144 max:162

Same again, but with Abi this time and in much better weather - perfect in fact at 13C, dry and a gentle breeze. Managed to knock off another minute or so without too much effort, which is cool.

Top tip from last night's chapter on posture is 'look to the horizon' (rather than looking down), which ties in neatly with the rest of the stuff on being tall and bouncy (I do feel like Tigger a bit now.) My first reaction of course was, I can't look to the horizon when orienteering / terrain running as I'd fall over, but the author acknowledges this head-on and recommends looking up as the default and down when you need to, rather than the other way around. Simple but effective.
