Trail Running 16:43 [2] 3.27 km (5:07 / km) +13m 5:01 / km
ahr:130 max:143 shoes: X Tallons 160 III

Orienteering 15:24 [5] 3.63 km (4:15 / km) +104m 3:43 / km
ahr:167 max:182 shoes: X Tallons 160 III

Catalonia MSR Leg 3.
Went out in 4th and about 1:30 down, and came back in the lead (although only just) but in a good enough position for last leg to see the job out successfully. The area was just a park so had been worried the course would be underwhelming, but there seemed to just the right level of vegetation/paths/climb/street furniture to have a pretty enjoyable course in the end. Plus relays are always fun.
1 PM

Trail Running 1:31:47 [2] 16.02 km (5:44 / km) +691m 4:43 / km
ahr:144 max:174 shoes: X Tallons 160 III

Jog home. Bloody warm.

If I had a nickel for every time I've done a long run back to my flat through the hills from an orienteering sprint relay, I'd have two nickels. Which isn't a lot, but it's kind of weird that it's happened twice.

8 AM

Trail Running 23:14 [2] 4.01 km (5:48 / km) +181m 4:44 / km
ahr:126 max:155 shoes: Asics Sonoma 4.2

Train station to event.
9 AM

Trail Running 5:46 [2] 1.02 km (5:40 / km) +28m 4:59 / km
ahr:126 max:141 shoes: VJ Bolds 5 (WK)

Orienteering 42:55 intensity: (20:00 @3) + (22:55 @4) 7.19 km (5:58 / km) +259m 5:03 / km
ahr:146 max:172 shoes: VJ Bolds 5 (WK)

First half was mainly running involved negotiating the scrappy bits of terrain between fields, but the seconds half was in the woods and was much nicer. Hadn't really been expecting too much beforehand anyway as I was mainly here to help out the club in organising the event after their many emails asking for more volunteers, but I still have a nice time. Still feeling whatever Wednesday was a bit, so also good to have some motivation to put some effort in. Plus I won a bottle of cava which is an added bonus.
1 PM

Trail Running 23:56 [1] 4.2 km (5:42 / km) +120m 4:59 / km
ahr:133 max:153 shoes: Asics Sonoma 4.2

After spending 2 hours successfully manning the post-race snack table I agreed to do a bit of collecting with the promise of a lift back to the station - didn't fancy the 20min jog in the sun with a bottle of sparking wine as I feared having an impromptu F1 podium-esque moment half way back.

Road Running 1:00:15 [2] 12.87 km (4:41 / km) +54m 4:35 / km

Still a bit meh, but going in the right direction.

6 PM

Road Running 1:01:10 [2] 12.43 km (4:55 / km) +230m 4:30 / km
ahr:136 max:177 shoes: Mizuno Wave Riders 24

Bit of a tentative plod. Feeling maybe 75% which is about 75% better than yesterday, so feel like I did a reasonable job avoiding something worse.

Wednesday May 4 #

Note
(sick) (rest day)

Slept terribly yesterday and felt like death all day. Stomach pains that developed during yesterday's run never really improved, which added to the all round bad vibes.

Got home from work and immediately slept for 2 hours. Woke up and finished my lunch that I couldn't stomach previously, and then went back to bad and slept for 10 more.

Tuesday May 3 #

9 PM

Road Running 58:46 [2] 11.99 km (4:54 / km) +257m 4:26 / km
ahr:142 max:169 shoes: Mizuno Wave Riders 24.2

Had a few more copas than planned at some impromptu post-work socialising but decided it was still a good idea to get some miles in: the first 15mins were a struggle, then felt incredible for the middle 30, before dying an extremely uncomfortable death for the last part. Still a good evening on balance though.

Monday May 2 #

8 PM

Road Running 54:50 [2] 12.13 km (4:31 / km) +82m 4:22 / km
ahr:138 max:152 shoes: Mizuno Wave Riders 24

Nice sunny evening outing around l'Hospitalet, which was nice. Didn't feel nearly as tired from the weekend as I had feared, which was also nice.
