Orienteering race 58:00 [3] 9.3 km (6:14 / km) +75m 6:00 / km
shoes: Oroc

Too average today. Nothing went wrong as such I just didn't feel awesome, was too cautious with my foot, and made way too many tiny direction errors. Not a great ratio when you miss 9 of the controls!! oops.
Needed more compass discipline as I seemed to get pulled off to the right all of the time & then have to double back across which was a massive waste of time (4-5mins I think). Annoyed but actually just way too happy to be running again to really care from a personal perspective, more just that I wanted to do my best performance for the team which this blates was not! All good fun though :)

Orienteering warm up/down 20:00 [1]

Saturday Dec 13, 2014 #

Running warm up/down 38:00 [1] 6.2 km (6:08 / km)
shoes: Asics Gel Kayano 20 (Pink)

Running tempo (parkrun) 20:09 [4] 5.0 km (4:02 / km)
shoes: X Talon 212

New PB by 19 seconds :) happy to be the fastest I've ever been (even if it's not actually that fast compared to everyone else :P) That 20min barrier is looking breakable! Started slowly today as well with a 4:15 first km. Feeling quite strong which is a nice surprise.

Running 43:00 [3] 8.5 km (5:04 / km) +50m 4:55 / km
shoes: Asics Gel Kayano 20 (Pink)

Same loop as Wednesday but at a proper pace - less ankle pain as well. Really got endorphin happy on the way round, love love running :)

S&C 1:00:00 [1]

This session is so much better than the Tuesday one. It's so much more motivating to have somebody fit/strong taking the session. There's also much more focus on using the correct technique and being controlled in our movements rather than rushing through and feeling like you used all the wrong muscles. Lots of body weight exercises too - arms were burning & no weights in sight! fun :-)

Spin 50:00 [2]

The wrong way round but finishing off with another spin class! sweaty.

Running 48:00 [2] 8.5 km (5:39 / km)
shoes: Asics Gel Kayano 20 (Pink)

Cleared for an easy run - probably wasn't supposed to run quite so far but I was having too much fun to stop! A few twinges & it feels a bit like there's lots of liquid in my foot, but no pain. Iced it for a while now & there doesn't seem to be any adverse effects. Will monitor and see how things are tomorrow & then decide on a plan of action & what to do about the weekend. Cannot take any more spinning haha.

S&C 1:00:00 [1]

Pilates but with weights this week - ooowww my arms hurt :(
Ankle seems to be improving but more slowly than I expected - i did a 5 min run today & it ached a fair bit afterwards. Nothing now though and no pain at all when actually running so not sure what to do now, I don't know if that's making it worse or not. Boooo desperate to run again, I was so enjoying my training, and too many races getting ever closer.

Spin 1:00:00 [2]

Yet another spin class!! I do enjoy them but not every single day!
Forced myself to work hard again but glad when it was done. :-)
On the plus only 9 more days of hard work left until the Christmas fun can begin - happy days
