Orienteering race 54:44 [5] *** 7.9 km (6:56 / km) +170m 6:15 / km
spiked:19/29c (injured) shoes: Inov8 Flyroc 310

Nice run around Treeton just south of Sheffield. It was little rough in places but fairly pleasant.

My race was fairly ragged. My concentration was pretty good, didn't suffer any big distractions and generally had decent plans. Occassionally my visualisation and frequently my distance judgement were letting me down though. These are the two things I think suffer most through lack of practice. Need to focus on these in the next race.

Looking at the splits I lost about 5mins, but won by 2 1/2mins; what were the others playing at!

Running 30:00 [1] 2.0 km (15:00 / km) +30m 13:57 / km
shoes: Inov8 Flyroc 310

General warm up and down with stretching. Feeling achey due to yesterday hills so needed the stretching.


Ankle not a problem today but no sign of the swelling subsiding.

Running hills (Intervals) 40:00 [5] 3.0 km (13:20 / km) +300m 8:53 / km
(injured) shoes: Inov8 Flyroc 310

Hill reps on the local pit tip.

3 x Start at bottom of hill then sprint to 1st drainage channel; slow back down; 2nd drainage channel; slow back down; then the 3rd and slow back down.

3 different hills of varying steepness, so 27 reps total.

Ankle still swollen, not good!

Running warm up/down 30:00 [1] 4.0 km (7:30 / km) +20m 7:19 / km
shoes: Inov8 Flyroc 310

Normal warm up routine, with a fairly long steady run (~3km) to warm down.


The ankle is as swollen this evening as it has been for months. There is no pain; not even during exercise. However, I can feel the swelling and it is a little achey. Never had an injury any thing like this bad before. Does any one have any advice? Is training on it likely to be damaging it particularly and how much training is sensible? I last went to the physios around 6 weeks ago who gave me the go ahead to slowly increase the training from the occassional run on hard surfaces (1/2 times a week) I had been doing.

Cross Training (Football) 1:00:00 [2]
(injured) shoes: Asics

7 a side with work. 5-3 victory!

My ankle was a liitle swollen after yesterdays intervals; this f@#&1*g injury! No pain just swelling, though it feels abit of a mess in there. No pain during the game but iced it afterwards anyway. This seamed to reduce the swelling slightly.

Was going to do a short run on the pit tip but was knackered when I got home from work. Took a rest day instead.
