RUNNING hills 1:05:00 [3] 11.0 km (5:55 / km) +310m 5:11 / km
ahr:146 max:175 (injured) shoes: Highlanders v2

Testing my knee on Win HIll - probably a silly choice but it felt good and I didn't have to take ibuprofen. The uphill was the most painful with more pressure on the knees - downhill was easy as it was more soggy ground after early morning rain.

Friday Feb 27, 2009 #


Feeling a lot better and full movement - just worried about pressure while walking.

Wednesday Feb 25, 2009 #


knee still bad! Had to drive to work as couldn't really walk.

RUNNING warm up/down 15:00 [3]
shoes: OLWAY Tigers

On the way to the start worked out that I had further to go than on the instructions - brilliant.. RUN!

ORIENTEERING race (National Event) 1:42:30 [4] **** 15.0 km (6:50 / km) +225m 6:21 / km
ahr:172 max:183 spiked:29/35c shoes: OLWAY Tigers

A very long event after a knackering week and bad recovery. Still started off knackered and continued well. Picjed up the pace after the fast first loop with almost no orienteering needed.

Chose a bad route to the butterfly but did ok until the 2nd loop where I crocked my knee on a rootstock. Had to stand for a minute to work out if I could walk/run.

Pain eased off and I continued making only silly tired mistakes on the way home.

Passed by Erik Martinsson at the end but kept him in sight for the last few before the end loop near the finish.


Lacked a warm down as I couldn't really move my leg once finished. Bad times... pain + swelling.

ORIENTEERING race 22:59 [4] **** 3.9 km (5:54 / km) +125m 5:05 / km
ahr:181 max:188 spiked:11/13c shoes: OLWAY Tigers

Felt knackered after my friday night extravaganza with my colleague leaving to go to Patagonia... not good preparation. But anyway, made a hash of the first one as didn't like the size of the paths marked one the map. Once I realised where I was after 40s of standing still it was fine. Breezed around with a few youngsters and felt crap.

RUNNING warm up/down 10:00 [2]

ORIENTEERING race 22:30 [5] **** 4.1 km (5:29 / km) +90m 4:57 / km
ahr:186 max:193 spiked:15/16c shoes: OLWAY Tigers

Had a tactical brownie at Wilfs then headed off to try and beat Powell as he started 3 seconds behind me... a scary thought!
Started off quit easy making a little bit of a mistake to 2 - missed the obvious route choice but pulled it back finding myself near loads of people born in the 90's! AGH!
Still stayed ahead of the chasing pack and caught up with Marky Bown. Got onto the final loop and pushed hard for the finish .... forgot to punch the finish punch - remembered about 30s later so lost about 2-3 positions!! rubbish!

ahr:171 max:184 spiked:18/21c slept:8.0 shoes: OLWAY Tigers

Lovely Snowy day at Lindop (nr Chatsworth).
Orienteering Race was pretty clean, probably made about 2 mins mistakes total and I was happy at my gentle pace around the place.
Pushed it when I could downhill but I was a bit scared of damaging myself on the hidden undergrowth.
So runnable with the snow on top of the brambles you could cut across anything!

RUNNING warm up/down 30:00 [2] 3.1 km (9:41 / km) +35m 9:10 / km

Warm down waiting for Steve and caralyn to finish. So nice in the snow!!!


Went Sledging....

Stole Hazels yarp from her car at the event and went sledging afterwards at Ringinglow - of course after rucking into some chips from Outside Cafe!


Legs tight after having to get my legs higher over the snow

RUNNING (Snowy Hills) 55:00 [3] 8.0 km (6:53 / km) +200m 6:07 / km
rhr:36 slept:9.0 shoes: OLWAY Tigers

After a week of it being to icy at night and me being too knackered after the trudge home from work to do anything... went to Wharncliffe and Greno to do a bit of snow running.

So quiet and nice and amazing views over the Dark Peak.
Hills and Trails suited us well.

ahr:165 spiked:26/30c shoes: OLWAY Tigers

Clumber Park for the EM Champs.
Felt good at the start, made a few errors along route including 8 and 19... considering 19 was a road crossing this was RUBBISH!
Never mind, I was quite smootho throughout and managed to get my Forerunner to work without any issues.
Nice to see a bit of snow too :-)
