Running warm up/down 20:00 [3]

15 min jog to the start and then a little extra because i over estimated how long to leave. Felt pretty good at this stage and keen for a good run!
No warm down because...

Orienteering 1:12:11 [3]

Following logging this on attackpoint i'm never thinking of this run ever again! I dont even want to log it all because there's no way in the world it should've taken me this long! :( Started off feeling pretty good physically apart from the feeling im getting a bit of a cold, but it was nice forrest to run through again so it didnt bother me too much. I couldnt get my direction right from the very start though, even on the first control it was hard to make myself go where my compass was pointing me from my attackpoint for some reason. There was only six controls but i would've liked to have been happy with at least one of them... but my nav just did not improve! I dont know whether it was that i wasn't being careful or precise enough but i felt like i couldnt run anymore than 400m without checking my map and realising i'd gone off. I think i started to get a bit frustrated and exhausted because i honestly could not work out what i was doing wrong, and I had a bit of a moment where i couldnt for the life of me remember whether i had actually crossed a watercourse towards the end of leg number five. Anyway it ended up with me having a little bit of a panic/anxiety attack, possibly made worse by my head beating from a cold, possibly because of exhaustion i'm not really sure but i just couldnt control my breathing and had to sit down for a fair while. Finished the course because it was just a straight run back anyway. It wasnt easy running and my head felt really hot and kinda dizzy, but im glad i made myself finish, i would've been more cranky if i hadn't. Anywhoooooo, this run is now being written off and never to be thought of again :)

Orienteering race (State League #5) 36:42 [3] 5.0 km (7:20 / km)

Middle distance at Mount Piper. My legs didnt feel super fresh after the drive there and were a little sore from thursdays efforts too i think. Felt like i was able to push myself pretty well though especially at the end, and there was a few rough hills too! Lost a bit of time just from my compass bearings being a little off on a few and not looking up enough but it wasn't a bad run. Pretty fun forrest to run through i thought!

Running intervals 45:00 [3]

15 minute warm up, just jogging and then a few drills

Session felt rool tough! 100m, 200, 400, 600, 400, 200, 100 with 200m jogging in between each. My times weren't too bad but i just didnt feel like i was moving well or fast at all! Possibly because i just really noticed the difference between having active recovery instead of just rest... Had to guesstimate a little with the track markings too a few seem to have disappeared off the grass.

Then about a 10 minute warm down run and lunges etc.

Netball 40:00 [3]

I was prepared for another game at GK but turns out i had a full game in mid court which was nice! Our opponents were ridiculously aggressive which made for an interesting game aha

Running 39:47 [3]

Jog around ashtonfield trying to focus on my new and improved running style! Super hard to concentrate on it for the whole time and i definitely went back to the dodgy shoulders up and no stride style a couple of times. Stopped for about a minute after half way to give the calves and arms and brain a rest aha.

Strength + Conditioning 10:00 [3]

A few little drills with the hand weights afterwards, my arms felt so weak when i was running!

cycling 45:00 [3]

Really good class! Not alot of recovery at all between tracks so it was prettty tough!

Running 30:00 [3]

Nothing like a run in the pouring rain at the foreshore along the breakwall, super safe idea! It was a good run though. but unfortunately we had to skip out on strength, it was a bit too wet to lay on the grass in the rain for half an hour, a bit of a shame but we've been pretty lucky so far with the weather!
