Run warm up/down (Warm up/down) 12:00 [2]

Orienteering race (Keithcot Farm Sprint) 21:51 [3] *** 2.7 km (8:06 / km) +70m 7:10 / km

State Champs Sprint
Didn't really feel much like a sprint today - probably because my body has only just recovered from last weekend and also cos it was such a beautiful day that I actually felt like going for a nice long run in Belair. :)
Started well, taking no time at all to get used to the map. I was a bit tentative in the long grass for the first 9 controls and had a bit of trouble crossing the barbed wire fence from 4 to 5 (should have gone around). I also hesitated a bit finding 7 in the bush, as I missed the clearing that led into it. Luckily I looked to my right and saw it through the trees. Also a bit hesitant going to 8 as I couldn't see it and I wasn't sure if I'd already passed it. Took it easy in the school so as not to get bushed and didn't have a lot in me for a fast finish. Pretty happy with my run, though. The course was pretty fun, too (thanks John!).

Run (Narrinyeri Hills) 38:00 [3]

Went for an easy run along the Lavender Federation Trail through Narrinyeri while Tyson took my Mum flying from the Pallamanna Aerodrome not too far away. This trail is really fun to run on with lots of rocks and twists and turns. I went through the culvert under the trainline for the first time on the stepping stones and the water was a great clear aqua colour. Beautiful, sunny morning for it.

Run (Hawthorndene) 41:00 [3]

Easy run around Hawthorndene in the dark - Turners Avenue and then past the fire station, etc. A lot of the paths were very slippery and wet!

Cycling (Commute) 51:00 [3]

Ride home up the hill. Ride, ride, ride. Just a bit of drizzle as I climbed the back of Shepherds Hill. Definitely nicer traffic leaving just before 5pm as opposed to just afterwards.
6 PM

Run (Belair) 52:00 [3] 9.6 km (5:25 / km)

Nice night run in Belair with Jenstar, Zarastar, Troysta, Steve-da-sta, Johnsta and Tynomighty. Felt pretty good and I think the few days of relative rest has allowed my left hip to recover. Love these runs in the dark and the light rain.

Cycling (Commute) 37:00 [3]

Cold hands! I really need to invest in a pair of full cycling gloves. :)

I was going to ride home again, but I've decided to stay at work until we go out for dinner at 7pm and work on my final assignment due Saturday. I'll finally get my life back at the end of this week and have to bugger off to Europe! Not really disappointed, but I would like to get some long runs in and stuff that I've been missing out on lately due to study.

Run (North Adelaide) 44:00 [3]

Run around North Adelaide with Tyson, John, Bridget, Simon and Robin. Great to catch up with how everyone went in Tassie.

My left hip was still sore, sending pain down to my knee and ankle. It was runnable, but I wouldn't have liked to try running fast on it. Hopefully it will realign itself/loosen up soon.

(rest day)

Legs were SORE this morning. Much better this evening, but will benefit from a rest. Did some stretching instead.
