Road Running long 2:37:32 [3] 30.6 km (5:09 / km) +30m 5:07 / km
shoes: Brooks Adrenaline GTS 11 AW11

Reverse of my Island Gardens run two weeks ago - slight variation to go the long way around the park on the western edge of Isle of Dogs.

Did a "Farah" and fell over at 10.8km, although it was my own fault - tripped over my shoelaces. Faceplant onto tarmac, nice bruise on hip, and very bruised and bloody elbows, bet my hip will be aching something awful tomorrow.

Calves were OK this time until about 15km in. Things got pretty painful (again) at about 23km and I eased down from running 5min/km to around 5:30/km. Disappointed to be hurting quite so much again after what is only half way around a marathon. Today was going to be my last long run but I think I can get away with one more next weekend if I recover well from today (will include some stretching this time!)

Another warm and sunny day, with a reasonably strong westerly wind.

Earlier in the day had a look in a shoe shop to see if there were any better shoes around, as I suspect the Brooks are getting a bit worn (309mi says Attackpoint.) Unfortunately the worst time of the year to be buying running shoes - nothing good for under £100.

Score Orienteering (Street-O) 59:36 [3] *** 10.6 km (5:37 / km)
shoes: Purple and Green Too-large Miz

SLOW Waterloo Street-O (actually Bankside + City Street-O - even better!) As usual my unstretched calves started complaining after 3km but didn't get too much worse. I know the area extremely well, having mapped almost all of it over several years for the City Race, so had a big advantage, despite some tricky control clues. Poor route choice at start meant I was near the finish with only low-scoring controls nearby and 6 minutes to spare. However got them anyway and gently finished rather than the usual sprint (still worried about the calves). Pub was good afterwards even if they closed the kitchen early so didn't get food. Huge turnout - all 110 maps that were printed were used (I was starter 109!)

Unexpectedly good result despite the deliberately slower pace than normal and what I thought was poor execution. Finished 6th. Route on Routegadget.

8 PM

Jogging warm up/down 11:00 [2] 2.0 km (5:30 / km)
shoes: Purple and Green Too-large Miz

Warm-down jog with Eoin - pace just as fast as during the actual race!

11 AM

Cycle Commuting (In to Work) 27:11 [2] 11.12 km (2:27 / km)

Far and away the fastest commute into work for a long time. 15-20% faster than normal. Why? Running 26km yesterday? Cycling in regular shoes instead of cleats? Not carrying in a bag full of tubes of prints to post for the first time in a few weeks? In fact it was entirely due to the (unusual) north-easterly tailwind.
8 PM

Cycle Commuting (Back Home) 30:33 [2] 10.77 km (2:50 / km)
shoes: Specalized MTB Cleats

Definitely a headwind!
