Run - Orienteering race 38:43 [5] 6.5 km (5:57 / km) +230m 5:04 / km
shoes: VJ Falcon 07

BEOC Middle champs. Hopwas. Not a bad area for the midlands, reasonably runnable forest with some short steep hills with a few thicker sections. Starter well and manged to keep OJ behind (my two minute man) until 16. Not so good after that though as I felt weak and made a few bad rout choices. Shouldn't be feeling this tired in such a short race.
Would have been happy with my result (6th) though had emit not failed to record my finish, meaning that I was given a 10 minute split on the run-in (time to download) :( I hate emit - loads of units were on the ground and I even managed to cut my finger on one of the spikes for marking the backup card (which i didn't get given). I hate emit.

Warm up/down 20:00 [2] 3.0 km (6:40 / km)
shoes: Asics Gel GT 1120 07

(rest day)

Still resting to see if it will make a difference on the weekend.

Run - Road 27:00 [2] 4.5 km (6:00 / km)
shoes: Ascis Gel GT 2110

Jog down and back to/from the orienteering and a wee bit between the loops.

Run - Orienteering 23:00 [3] 6.0 km (3:50 / km)
shoes: Ascis Gel GT 2110

A very fun sprint training session on a smashing evening with the Sheffield possy. Still not a lot in my legs but I was happy enough running around at the back of the group. Apparently I also got 2 points, although does it count if I didn't know who I saw? (I'm already at a severe disadvantage here as I not only don't know any Sheffield runners, but I don't know Mr Hargreaves or Mr Furness either - it's going to take quite some time to get that gold certificate).


Some lucky stalker is going to be my 5000 visitor either tomorrow or Saturday. Do I get any bonus points for that? (It's taken nearly as long to get to that total as it will to get my gold certificate)

(rest day)

Still taking it easy but also still feeling quite tired on the walk in and out of university.

(rest day)

Going to take it propperly easy this week and see if I can get my energy levels back to where they should be, so no exercise today.

Warm up/down warm up/down 10:00 [2]
shoes: Asics Gel GT 1120 07

Circuits 45:00 [3]
shoes: Asics Gel GT 1120 07

Another very flat day and didn't enjoy the feeling much, the only thing that amused me (so much that I failed to complete the dynamic lunges) and kept me going was Craney's skipping.

Bike - Road 1:22:00 [3] 36.0 km (2:17 / km)

Road bike out the A57 to Ladybower and back over Burbage to Ringinglow and across to Redmires. About time we had a decent day and it was great to be out, felt pretty good although there was still a head wind all the way up the A57. Don't get out on my bikes enough - wobbly legs now :)
