Running warm up/down 15:00 [1] 2.5 km (6:00 / km)

Tiny bit of pain (where the quad/adductor/something connects to the knee on the inside) for about 5 mins & then I either forgot about it or it calmed down. No pain anywhere else up my adductor which is good :-) loved being freeee!

Orienteering 41:57 [3] 8.5 km (4:56 / km) +95m 4:40 / km
shoes: Asics Gel Kayano 20 (White)

Bracknell Urban - just steady pace to make sure I stay in one piece. Made sure to have good map contact, thumbing all the way so I never got confused & forgot where I was. Much better tactic than my usual run hard & probably into a dead end or the wrong alley! Did do a 180 at the map flip though & run for about 20 seconds in the wrong direction :)
Bit of a shame this couldn't have been an urban length sprint, as it seemed a bit of a waste to have really cool terrain with loads of long legs where the best route was to just run round a road. Gave up with that plan soon & did some wiggling around anyway as it was more fun!!
Enjoyed the planning on the legs where the obvious route on first glance actually crossed something uncrossable - forced you to plan the entire thing before setting off running.
No clue about distance or anything like that.

Good job I like spinning...! Mega rolling session too

Throat completely better :-) but now my adductor is sore :-( not really holding together very well this week! Annoyed as so close to wcup but I guess it's more important to get there in one piece. Was out for months with this one last year so only x-training for me for the next few days - won't lose fitness now anyway, just got to stay positive & sensible.

Running warm up/down 20:00 [1] 2.0 km (10:00 / km)
shoes: Asics Gel Kayano 20 (White)

Feeling so much better this morning so decided I could run. Still a bit painful but only about 10% of what it was yesterday. Could have been a stupid decision, but I guess will just have to wait & see...

Running race 38:32 [4] 10.0 km (3:51 / km)
shoes: Asics Gel Kayano 20 (White)

Bupa London 10,000
The best feeling ever - totally comfortable the whole way. Never once hit the point of finding it tough so I'd like to do another one in a few months time & pace it properly now I know what an achievable time to aim for is. Can't believe I was Reading's top female counter in the team championships after only just making the team in the first place!
The last time I ran a road 10km was 1 year ago & I did 44:07 then, so some pretty massive gains this year :-) now I get competitive ;-)
