Orienteering 49:25 [3] **** 7.5 km (6:35 / km) +290m 5:31 / km

Bigland (gallopen)

2nd out of 83

Great race technically, probably made about 30 secs- 1min mistakes.unfortunatley I didn't enjoy it too much because about half way around the WHOLE of my upper body started aching bad, and this completly reduced my speed...was just like jogging and even had to walk some uphill :( managed to get around though, probably could of been about 4 minutes faster. My theory for this is that it was cold, I had my garmin on too tight and my description holder., cutting off my blood circulation abit. 8 mins behind tom felbaum. good training for the JK.


Running warm up/down 15:00 [1] 2.0 km (7:30 / km)

Orienteering 40:00 [2] 5.0 km (8:00 / km) +150m 6:57 / km

collecting in controls from the event, had 57 between 5 of us, upper body wasn't hurting so guess my theory was right. Richard classes this as good endurance training. we classed it as just annoying because we couldn't be bothered. However was quite warm out and wasn't that tired as I thought, and it's nice to help out ;)

Cross training (tennis) 1:15:00 [1]

cheeky spot of tennis with the boy(angus).... bit rusty after not playing for ages, played one tiebreak and he beat me 7-4 , He was cheating obviously. I aced him so that's all that matters. nice to do something different.


went to the physio. sorted out back stiffness, hamstrings better but still need stretching more often. got some different stretches to do now. things are looking up.

Flexibility 10:00 [0]

Not to worried about it because I'm pretty sure it will be gone by the JK if I take care of it,was thinking about easing off the training leading to the JK aswell, will probs jut be doing technical stuff this weekend and following week(with the norweigans)

Cross training 30:00 [1]
(rest day)

cheeky spot of rounders in the sun, not training but whatever. cba with a recovery run, legs aren't stiff just fatigued, haven't had a true rest day in a while.


Not the results I was looking for this weekend, however lessons learnt, my form was really good coming into the weekend and it showed during the middle minus the mistake. 3 out of 4 slection races still to go for. norweigans are coming over for 4 days training with us in the holiday before the JK so hopefully everything will come together!

Cracking result for Angus at the weekend, well proud of him, he deserved something once in a while ;)
