Running warm up/down 21:33 [3]

To the start of the course and back. Not really a warm up, just kind of continued the same pace in the orienteering but this was just on the tracks. Saw a snake and the biggest bird i've ever come across on the warm down - #straya.

Orienteering 51:26 [3]

Course at Heart Rate Hills with Macey and Rob. Good fun! Much nicer temperature in the shade of the forest thank goodness. A few killer hills at the end which i didn't quite make it up... Put it all together and today was my long run for the week because tomorrow is the big, all important parko final! Super glad i was convinced to go today, now training is done and Josh and i just made the yummiest and biggest batch of smoothie on earth. Blisssssss

Strength + Conditioning 1:00:00 [3]

10min on the rower and then a strength session, a bit of everything. I've gotten better at the TRX stuff! Calves are feeling pretty sore today so i think a day off running is good.

Running warm up/down 26:28 [3]

16min warm up, 10min warm down. I took the short option home to minimise any extra hills, good move.

Running 33:29 [3]

Same hills session i did last time but this time at a different place. A nice sharp pinch at the start of the hill with loads of rocks made me feel like i was going nowhere, so it was tough! 8x1min hills, 3min rest, 10x30sec hills. Today was my first day of uni with enough hours to really claim that i'm back at uni, so i was kinda tired and not really feeling like doing this. Maybe not quiteeeee as consistent with my distance as last time but meh, glad i got it done!

Running warm up/down 18:00 [3]

Warm up and a reluctant warm down. I was tired

Orienteering 28:11 [3]

ParkO event #2 at Jesmond Park. Had expected the park to take up at least half the map so was a little shocked when it wasn't even 1/4 of the map. Still think it was a really enjoyable course though which was nice! I overran 7, wasted time standing at 8 picking a route to 9 and then I think I chose the bad route anyway so i lost some time. Still felt a bit congested with my breathing at the end but I was still able to push. Sore legs from intervals though, hammies especially!

Running warm up/down 31:02 [3]

Warm up and warm down with drills. Still pretty warm even after 6, did not take long at all to work up a sweat!

Running intervals 27:35 [3]

Intervals at the track with Macey and Sal. 4x 400m, 200m, 200m. 1min between intervals and then 2min between sets. Not sure how happy I am with it, I felt like I could recover ok between intervals but I barely lifted the pace for the 200's. I'd spent a fair amount of time at the beach during the day and had a little too much sun exposure, so I looked like a tomato and it didn't take much hard work for me to feel it in my gut. Huge headwind for the home straight too which I probably didn't help the times.

Running 30:00 [3]

Got to the gym super early so did an easy 30 on the treadmill.

Strength + Conditioning 55:00 [3]

Body Blitz at the gym. Super tough class! Heaps of leg stuff, i think i'll pull up pretty sore...

Running 1:12:09 [3]

With Macey, Angus and Rob. Started off feeling pretty alright. Then we had a nice section of sand follow by some stairs and that took it out of me a bit. And then the last 15mins ended up as a bit of a battle between me and the half banana i ate for breakfast... And then i ended pathetically and walked the last little bit back to the car :( Surprisingly hot today!
