Orienteering race (Kentish Town Street-O) 1:01:30 [3] 6.08 mi (10:07 / mi) +72m 9:45 / mi
shoes: Saucony ProGrid Ride - 2nd pai

Only remembered about this this morning (thought it was next week). Luckily Dan was finishing early so could pick up kit, and the gig I went to after was also in Kentish Town.

Last of the North London races. Did ok I think, headed south first to Camden -> Primrose Hill -> Belsize Park -> Gospel Oak. Mostly fine, possibly slight misjudgement at the end going for a 30 that I maybe should have missed then struggling to get the last 30 and 40 in. Should probably have missed it out and tried to get a later 30.

Clues rather than post boxes but all easy to see.

Knee didn't hurt at work, or running, or gig. Got off bus at home and felt it again. Not going to worry too much, but it is a bit weird.

Note

Martin Yelling says at this stage in marathon training it's not worth running on niggles for extra miles so didn't go to Heathside and gave knee a break, prob not run til Sprint and Middle Champs at the weekend.

Went to pub to celebrate Budget 2012.

Orienteering race (Wimbledon Night-O) 1:07:16 [3] *** 4.9 mi (13:44 / mi) +23m 13:32 / mi
spiked:9/16c shoes: Inov8 ORoc 280

Really fun night race on Wimbledon Common. Probably only about my third go at night-O and fast becoming one of my favourite things.

1 and 2 took steady but hit ok.
3 got confused with paths - what I thought was a path fizzled out so went back to the junction and started again. Ok but then went up the hill rather than round it and had to go back, slow but found control ok.

4, followed paths but then there seemed to be loads of paths and didn't make sense so beared off a little to hit the pond (which I couldn't see but could hear ducks). Made sure I found and followed the right ditch and came into the control ok from the top.

5, couldn't see in bush, lost minute

6, should have gone back to path I came out of but hit control from golf course ok.

7,8,9,10,11 all fine - especially pleased to take bearing across open to 8 and hit spot on.

12, Vince and Bryn both ahead of me and dived into bushes, so went in after them, after a minute realised neither of them knew where they were and I was no better, so came back out and found the path and then the control fine.

13,14,15,16 all fine.

Really enjoyed myself. Knee hurting towards the end :( so think I'll be taking it easy the next few days.

Running long (Long Run by water) 3:16:01 [3] 20.0 mi (9:48 / mi) +126m 9:37 / mi
shoes: Saucony ProGrid Ride - 2nd pai

Really nice long run. Started off with John. Found the first couple of miles hard, quite light headed and felt a bit sick (maybe the bacon sandwich was a bit too close to run time) but after 3 miles I felt quite good. i know this happens now (and it's a good reminder that I need to warm up before the sprint next weekend) - though I think it's probably partly psychological too.

Headed east over to the River Lea, this really is a lovely part of town, running down the tow path there were cafes and pubs and people rowing and most of London doesn't even know it exists. Hung a right at the Olympic Stadium along the side of Victoria Park then left down the Regent's Canal.

Started to want water, I don't tend to carry water on these long runs as usually in london you're about 3 secs from a shop, apparently not the case in Limehouse Basin and it was Wapping before we got a drink. Harold and Dan caught us here (I'd given us a half hour head start) then headed west along the Thames. I was feeling really good along here but John was having problems with his knee, so he left me at Westminster (about 13 miles).

I then headed across the parks and was pleased to find my way back to the canal at Paddington. The last few miles felt like a slog, especially being on my own but managed the full 20 miles so pretty happy.

Legs feeling pretty good, so definitely think the week off was a good idea.
