Event: Adelaide NOL

Orienteering (Sprint quali) 17:48 [3] 2.2 km (8:05 / km)

So many stairs and so much humidity! Ran quite hard hoping to qualify, and just scraped through in 6th in the faster heat. Navigated quite well (only got a little bushed on the way to 3) and didn't have the control on the multistorey which caused some confusion on other courses. Spent a little too much juice given there was another race to go...

Orienteering (Sprint final) 20:41 [3] 2.5 km (8:16 / km)

Woo last place in 21E! Although I did run some extra. Got to the first control to find Mary confused as the numbers didn't match. Then checked the course once I found that the 2nd control was wrong too. Made the mistake of not running back the same way we'd come, and missed seeing Rachel and Nicola - my aim at the time was to get back as quickly as possible and wasn't quite thinking clearly!

Hadn't been feeling that good before the start - feeling the heat and a bit of a headache. Got going again and my legs didn't have much zip. Didn't really make any mistakes, but didn't have enough left in the tank.

Core strength/stretching 12:00 [3]

Hard core

Kayaking (dragon boat) 40:00 [3]

Fairly hard paddle. Went from Etihad to the Bolte Bridge with a milk crate hanging off the back of the boat. Pretty hard work. I was really struggling at the start but then the coach gave me his super light paddle.

Riding 20:00 [3]

Running 30:00 [3]

Drills, run throughs, warm up, warm down, run throughs, warm down.

Running 10:00 [3]

It's not about how you train, just where. And the rest is psychological.

We went out into the park for their 'cross country' loop today - about 450m on grass. I'd been feeling very sleepy at work and almost nodded off before lunchtime. Was really slow in the warm up. Then killed it on the intervals. Matched it with some of the blokes. Not sure whether I was just going harder than usual because it was more enjoyable than track, or whether I was relatively quicker because I run in terrain.

2'13, 2'08, 2'03, 1'57, 1'51

First 3 felt pretty cruisy, the last 2 were a bit harder.

Riding 22:00 [3]

Cruise up to the aths track and back.

Running 51:00 [3]

Bit of a mish mash run around Edgars Creek from the aths track. Did a few hill intervals on Rabbit Hill (only saw one). A fair bit of up and back and looping around. Stopped to pull out a serrated tussock, then found a heap more and gave up. Attempt at acclimatisation for next weekend.
