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

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

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

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

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 :(

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).
