Running 10:00 [3]

My back's been hurting since monday but I thought I'd give it a go.. nope! Got as far as the start of fishouse lane, met Carol and drove straight home. Pretty much hurts even to bend down and take my shoes off, PLEASE BE BETTER BY SATURDAY.

Running (Flat Road) 35:00 [2]

Ratherslow and relaxing jog down fishouse lane.

Running 5:00 [4]

Decided to do a 5minute threshold on the way back (probably too short to do any good, but still quite satisfying)

Monday Jan 28, 2013 #

Running hills (Mid Hills) 12:00 [5]

6x 1min on, 1min recovery (jogging back down) with a break between 3 and 4.

Felt ok which was surprising after being out in the cold all weekend and sir's evil "I hate you all so I'm gonna make you run round the hall 50 times then do pressups" PE lesson.

Running warm up/down (Jog&stretches) 20:00 [2]

Orienteering 50:00 [4]

Control flow, route choice and a longer one.

Saturday Jan 26, 2013 #

Orienteering (Urban Sprint) 35:00 [4]

two 1km courses and three ~200m head to heads
On snow :D

Orienteering (Night O) 1:30:47 [2] 5.0 km (18:09 / km)

Jogwalked it with Katie and Hannah. Pretty fun in a weird sort of way, and we didn't even get too lost

Friday Jan 25, 2013 #

Circuits (TV circuits) 24:00 [4]

three times the same circuit as last time

Circuits (TV circuits) 20:00 [5]

The parents went out and I wanted to watch more TV - it doesn't count as wasting time if you do circuits at the same time?
alternating one minute sit ups, one squats, one plank, half baby press ups, with the ad breaks as rest/recovery.

Thursday Jan 24, 2013 #

Running intervals (Lactate Shuttles) 15:00 [5]

400m on, 400m just under threshold with a longer rest (400m? walking) between 2 and 3. Got the changeovers at all the right places for the first time. :D

Running warm up/down (Jog to/from) 30:00 [3]

I actually ran quite fast all the way home because (idiots that we are) me and Adam had ended up talking about axemen/murderers/psychos

Running warm up/down 15:00 [1]

Jogwalking back from the end of the intervals to the main road

Wednesday Jan 23, 2013 #

Running (Hilly run) 1:15:00 [3]

Grassgarth with Hannah

Tuesday Jan 22, 2013 #

Other/Cross Training (Trampolining) 30:00 [1]

Mummykins told me not to run today, and I sort of needed a rest so I thought I'd try revising on the trampoline
= Revising+exercise+practising reading and moving at the same time :D
ngl I'm quite proud of this

Only did it for half an hour because ice was forming on the trampoline and me toes were chilly

Monday Jan 21, 2013 #

Running hills (Mid Hills) 6:00 [5]

Stepping it up to two sets of 3 instead of 3,2
Really glad I went for that run yesterday, I reckon that what's stopped my legs from seizing up after cross country :)

Running warm up/down 25:00 [2]

Jogging up at the start, down at the end and down between sets. Plus (very) short drills session
Got to love the woods in the snow!

Sunday Jan 20, 2013 #

Running (Hilly run) 1:33:00 [3] 15.0 km (6:12 / km)

My knees didn't hurt and my hip was fine after the first 20 minutes :) I was only going to go for an hour but I came to a crossroads in my life ("in my liife, there is someone who touches my life..") with one way marked "home, revision, art exam practice" and the other marked Grassgarth, so I went to Grassgarth and found a path I'd never been down, Oh this looks exciting! About 15 minutes later hello Cartmel. Hello bramblebashing back to the road. Hello half an hour's run back up hill to get home..
Quite a nice run though - I shall remember this one for another time

Running race (Cross Country) 12:00 [5] 4.0 km (3:00 / km)

(time is a bit of a guess, I'll check the results one day)

WOO selected for cumbria schools team again :D
My hips/legs/knees were pretty painful warming up so I was a bit worried but for some reason they all stopped hurting like 1minute before the start. Did my usual "get lost I am not sprint starting" approach so I was overtaking people all the way round (and none of them got me back. HA.) Spent the majority of the race admiring the pretty windmills (admiring the view in Barrow - got to be a first) so it went pretty fast and I actually managed a proper sprint finish for the first time in my life. Finished 6th and Katie Lowles was 7th so woo both going to English Schools' :D

Running warm up/down 30:00 [2]

Jogging and drills to check out the course as a warm up, and a jog along the beach to warm down

Friday Jan 18, 2013 #

Running (Flat Road) 55:00 [2]

Had a reaally slow jog and a bit of a catch up, good preparation for XC tomorrow I think, although I'm a bit worried because my knees are really sore form too much running on roads and my legs still hurt from yesterday - but hopefully nothing a good long sleep won't sort out :)
The run to haverthwaite and back was quite fast because a) I was late for ma baben (shockhorror) and b) it was cold, dark, creepy etc and I hate being on my own going past the creepy houses

Thursday Jan 17, 2013 #

Running intervals (Lactate Shuttles) 15:00 [4]

The same as last time: 4x 400m with 400m rolling on and a longer recovery after 2 of them. The markers were much clearer this time but I kept forgetting which I was meant to start/stop at so the distances are rather approximate.. I still don't think I quite have my pace sorted out as some felt much faster than others, but it was better than last time :)

Running warm up/down (Jog to/from) 35:00 [2]

plus a few drills.

Spent the whole way there trying to warm my hands up - they were numb before I got out of the door! and most of the jog back admiring the SNOWW! :D

Wednesday Jan 16, 2013 #

Circuits (TV circuits) 18:00 [5]

1/2 rest
flying fish thingies
V sit

Tuesday Jan 15, 2013 #

Running hills 45:00 [3]

Usual heights run with an extra loop to make it four 2-3 minute hills instead of three. Father is nearly better so he came out for a nice jiggety jog and still easily kept up with me :S

Monday Jan 14, 2013 #

Running hills (Mid Hills) 9:00 [4]

5 times 1min on, 1min jog back down/further up to the next un-icey bit of road.

Running warm up/down (Jog to/from) 50:00 [2]

Jogging to/from our lovely little bridge, walk/running up the hill to a suitably ice-free patch and jogging/skating down. Jolly good fun avec ma soeur d'un autre pere - that saying does not work in fench :(

Sunday Jan 13, 2013 #

Orienteering race (Forest) 43:14 [4]

Club Champs

Kept seeing people ahead of me who I wanted to catch up so I ended up running pretty fast all the way round. Easily made up for by winning a toblerone though (omnom).

Saturday Jan 12, 2013 #

Running hills 15:00 [4]

Trying pretty hard up to Bigland stables. I always forget how fast that sisterthing can run

Running warm up/down 20:00 [2]

Chittity chatting to the hill and back down. Got to catch up before she leaves again and all that :/

Friday Jan 11, 2013 #

Thursday Jan 10, 2013 #

Running intervals (Lactate Shuttles) 15:00 [5]

4x 400m with 200m rolling on. Probably more of a jog than a float because the markers were hard to spot

Running warm up/down (Jog to/from) 1:00:00 [2]

Plus drills

Wednesday Jan 9, 2013 #

Running (Hilly run) 45:00 [3]

Did the normal run backwards feeling like such a heretic.

Tuesday Jan 8, 2013 #

Running (Hilly run) 35:00 [3]

Nice peaceful run over the Heights with the fatherthing. My calves felt a little tight from the weekend but nice to be home, easy run, pretty sunset etc etc.

Monday Jan 7, 2013 #

Running hills (Long hills) 10:00 [4]

Increased to 5 times 60 seconds with 60 seconds recovery, and we tried making them more like "lactate shuttles" by jogging back down the hill instead of walking between intervals/shuttles.

Running warm up/down 30:00 [2]

Sunday Jan 6, 2013 #

Orienteering race (Urban Sprint) 20:57 [4] 2.8 km (7:29 / km)

I probably didn't take the optimum route to number 1 and I made a complete mess of number 10, but other than that..

Orienteering race (Urban Sprint) 19:57 [4] 2.9 km (6:53 / km)

Actually went reasonably well and I still got the slowest time out of everyone :(
Never mind I know what to work on: reading the map while running and making quick decisions and/or taking the first one I see as the distance difference is never that much in a sprint. Certainly planning ahead.

Orienteering warm up/down 30:00 [2]

Warm up map
2 sets of jogging and drills

Saturday Jan 5, 2013 #

Orienteering warm up/down (Sprint) 30:00 [4]

Forest prologue warm up map (jogging and walking) and drills

Orienteering race (Urban Sprint) 11:04 [4] 1.2 km (9:13 / km)

I think I went the best way to most of them (although there probably wasn't much in it distancewise) but it was more a matter of speed of decision making and map reading.

Orienteering race (Forest Sprint) 14:38 [4]

Orienteering race (Urban Sprint) 12:59 [4] 0.8 km (16:14 / km)

Made such a mess of two of them and it was generally untidy for the rest. Maybe I was tired, maybe I just need to go work on the three things I've identified over the weekend.

Friday Jan 4, 2013 #

Orienteering (Urban Sprint) 45:00 [3]

Control pick
Line 1 (logical route you might actually take around a course)
Map flip (each control on opposite sides of the map to force you to make quick route choices)
Line 2 (ridiculously squiggly line - agility practice)

all about 0.4 to 2km

Orienteering (Urban Sprint) 36:09 [4]

"Clock Relay" - no idea where the relay bit came from..

Orienteering (Urban Sprint) 20:00 [3]

So much fun. Made funner by the odd routes to the start and rather odd housing estate

Orienteering warm up/down 15:00 [2]

Jogging round the field/park
I only warmed up once the whole day which was really stupid

Thursday Jan 3, 2013 #

Orienteering (Urban Sprint) 45:00 [3]

A rather civilised (street lit :D ) evening score type thing which I jog/ran with Julie
