ORIENTEERING ◪ 30:00 [3]

Re ran the WOC 04 sprint courses, never thought I would be back at Vasteras again, but having got a lift to Norway with BJ after a night on the Jukola party boat, I was happy to run here again

Sunday Jun 18, 2006 #

ORIENTEERING ◪ 2:00:00 [3]

Jukola, it went better than I thought, I was worried that I was not the best choice for the long night, nearly talked myself out of running the leg, but once i got going, everything went well.
Biggest mistake was only 1 min, and that happened because I was running with Peter Ivars, and went to his control,
Bloody great event, will have to get back and do it again one day, but not next year

Saturday Jun 17, 2006 #

ROAD BIKE 30:00 [3] 12.0 km (2:30 / km)

When I heard that the Bus was leaving at 11.30, I decided that I had better warm up a little before I got there. Nothing worse than getting out of the bus and having to run straight away

RUN warm up/down 30:00 [3] 6.0 km (5:00 / km)

Got to the run with plenty of time to warm up. Start was at 2.30, not 2 as I thought. warm down after run as well

ATHLETICS race (Charles Suffron) 24:55 [5] 6.5 km (3:50 / km)

Very nice cross country course, start on a race course, through some pine forest, along the edge of the lake, out and around a bit of rough country before returning to do last lap on race course.
Had a good battle with Paul Hayes and Frankie Shevlin, bet Paul but lost to Frank by 3 seconds.
Overall 5th in vets field, paul was 15 secs behind in 8th, great turnout of vets. Only just got infront of Geoff Lawford, well 30 secs, but he is running very well

RUN 16:00 [4] 3.5 km (4:34 / km)

Went up to the res to do my Clara reps, but the fences have all been fixed again, so had to do them elsewhere. Felt good, but hard to measure as on new area.


Yesterday while riding, Toph and I meet Charles, who commented, how could we be training at such a nice time of day.
Today, as I was retuning from my reps (3.30) I was going to miss Fogga Bogga Rd area by going along Milton Ave, when who should I bump into but Margaret. Oh well, Busted again

shoes: Silva O shoes

Long O at Bostock Res, 4 loops, didnt go to hard, nearly was going to give it up when I picked up the 3rd (6.4k) map, but stuck to it.
Its nice running in pine forest, and also when it is softer on the ground, something we lack up here in Bendigo.
Km rate was not that fast, Big Ev ran 6.40's, but on the "short" 12k course

WIND TRAINER warm up/down 40:00 [3]

Bendigo Local event, went out easy and held it steady, error free, only difficulty was judging the scale in the mining areas.

ATHLETICS race 18:28 [4] 5.0 km (3:42 / km)
shoes: Nike Pegasus #1

Bendigo YMCA Cross Country race, went in it as a warm down, but that didnot last long, Leon caught me 30 secs after 1 k, then he didnt get away through the hills, so I took him back at 4k. But his kick is better than mine. Fairly happy with run, sore/tight calves.
