Orienteering race 1:21:24 [4] 7.0 mi (11:38 / mi)

Loch Vaa SOL. Blue.
Loch Vaa, planned by Mike Stewart. Tough technical and tremendous, classic orienteering.
Completely bolloxed #1, not into it at all -3min, JonX raced through and away. then another minute on very weird #5, which was in a reentrant pointing the wrong way. Very odd.
Caught Hazel at 7, who was moving at much the same speed, and we flipped back and forth from there, trading 30sec on routes and misses. Pleased to be moving at her speed, until the run in obvs. Then it transpired she ran the Two Breweries yesterday which is a little more epic than a clown shoe 5k.

Running tempo 23:00 [4] 3.1 mi (7:25 / mi)

Parkrun

So today was the day to try out the birthday present to self Hoka X3 cheat shoes (£130 on eBay). Didn't feel great, so the time indicates quite a benefit: second highest post-PE age-graded score creeping over 70% - I think the system also has birthday-bonus discontinuities but it is what it is.

Note

Cheat Shoes

First impression was that the shoes feel bouncy, but that's always true of new shoes, especially when replacing the 2002 vintage road flats. Second, they weren't as unstable as expected: there are right angle bends and coped just fine. They also felt, well, slow, and the cadence is about 1-2% down stridelength up on last parkrun. The big difference though was the general battering on the legs with felt much less, perhaps especially for me because of the lack of sensation below the kess?.

They're not going to help with advancing age and lack of calf muscles, but well worth the title.
