Road Bike 3:22:00 [3] 90.5 km (26.9 kph)

Ride with Kezza out to Sandgate via Boondall. Head wind on the way out made life bit tough, but was worth it on the way back.

Run 22:14 [3] 4.8 km (4:38 / km)
ahr:150 max:174 shoes: Brooks Adrenaline GTS 9

Another run to test out the achilles. Legs have lost a bit of running condition over the last two weeks, so lots of different muscles sore. Felt better running today, think its going to be alright, just need to sort out something with my o shoes seeing as they are what caused it to flare up in the first place.

Run 20:00 [3] 4.3 km (4:39 / km)
shoes: Brooks Adrenaline GTS 9

Easy run round uni to test out the ankle and achilles. Ankle is fine, achilles felt alright but its feeling a bit tight now, but I'm going to assume thats from all the eccentric calf raises I've been doing.

Reverse riverloop with the cat and kezza. A few sneaky attacks through west end destroyed me tonight. Saw a 1.5m python at yeronga on the road.

Road Bike 2:45:00 [3] 70.0 km (25.5 kph) +700m
shoes: BMC SL01 Road Racer

Mt Nebo with Kezza. Starting to feel comfortable on the hills, time up Nebo was same as usual though. Got lots of fast descending practice on the way back, love that section just after bellbird grove, makes the climb worthwhile. Luckily didnt see any wombats to crash into like some guy did last week.

Ride with Kezza to Darra and back via Coot-tha. Went out way too hard at the start of the climb and cracked at 1.5km. Time 10.04 so only 11secs from pb. Booked flights to europe today as well :)

ahr:147 max:182 shoes: BMC SL01 Road Racer

Ride with Kezza. Riverloop plus 3 Coot-tha reps. 10.30, 10.20, 10.18. Happy with negative splits, thought i was gonna crack 10mins on the last one but the last steep pinch between 1.5km and 1.9km cracked me a bit.

Road Bike 2:25:00 [3] 62.5 km (25.9 kph)
shoes: BMC SL01 Road Racer

Was meant to be doing a Mt Nebo ride with Jamie and Kezza but none of them turned up. Headed out there anyway but got a flat at bardon. So bailed on that, did a slow Coot-tha ride (10.27min climb), then smashed out a riverloop in 75mins. Was averaging over 30km/h on the riverloop till I hit the markets at west end.

Sunday Apr 11, 2010 #


Got most of the way to the first control then my right ankle decided it would start hurting after being fine in the warmup. Must have done some more damage to it after rolling it in the sprint. Tried to run through it but pain didnt ease so had to bail. Pretty disappointed bout that.

I think this is the most beat up my body has been after Easter races although it is all confined to my right leg. Have now got an injured ankle, achilles (tendonitus maybe), and severely bruised shin. Back on the bike this week.

Orienteering race 49:12 [3] 6.3 km (7:49 / km) +230m 6:36 / km
ahr:173 max:181 shoes: JALAS Black FLX

NOL Middle distance. Jules was starting 2mins behind me so plan was to hit everything smoothly so I'd hold him off for longer. Eventually got chased down out of 5, stuck with him till 7 where I fell in a wombat hole and smashed up the right leg. Limping again through 8-9, small misses on 10-11. Hit the next section to 19 cleanly but was starting to crack. Messy through the next few and lost a couple of minutes. Last section was easy but I was dead. Another 11th place.

Orienteering race 16:16 [3] 2.7 km (6:01 / km)
ahr:173 max:188 shoes: JALAS Black FLX

NOL Sprint at the Buck. Rolled right ankle again going into 3. Limped across to 4 and it loosened up again. Happy with 11th in a sprint but know i can do better.

Thursday Apr 8, 2010 #

Orienteering race (Easter Day 3) 59:13 [4] 8.3 km (7:08 / km)
ahr:169 max:179 shoes: JALAS Black FLX

Easter last day chasing start. Started in 18th at the back of a massive pack within a couple of minutes. Had the northern split first and caught blair and jimbo there, then found ian and patty saile. Pace picked up a bit and found matty parton as well. Pulled away with Mat on the way back to the pivot control and got a decent lead on the bunch. Managed to hold that lead to the finish and moved from 18th to 11th overall, plus finally cracked the top 10 in a NOL. Really happy with how the weekend finished, just wish i didnt have a shocker in the middle.

Orienteering race (Easter Day 2 (Long)) 1:32:04 [4] 15.4 km (5:59 / km)
ahr:168 max:177 shoes: JALAS Black FLX

Long distance race at Kowen Forest. Started off well, hit most of the controls cleanly except a big parallel error on 16. Felt good running but faded in the last loop (couldnt get the last gel down at the spectator).

Run warm up/down 20:00 [3]

Orienteering race (Easter Day 1 (Middle)) 54:47 [4] 5.9 km (9:17 / km)
shoes: JALAS Black FLX

Stuffed the 2nd control due to my interpretation of the mapping and that threw me mentally for the rest of the race. Too hard to explain on here. Worst race ever.

Friday Apr 2, 2010 #

11 AM

Run warm up/down 15:00 [3]

Orienteering race (Easter Prologue) 18:24 [4] 3.5 km (5:15 / km)
ahr:177 max:183 shoes: Brooks Adrenaline GTS 9

Easter Prologue. Legs bit tight from driving the last two days. Navigation was spot on, but hit the wall physically after the spectator loop. Couldnt chase down morty and Kezza managed to put 30secs into in the last section.

Thursday Apr 1, 2010 #

Run 27:13 [3]
