RUN long 1:08:00 [3] 14.0 km (4:51 / km)
shoes: Nike Zoom

Been working at Creswick a couple of days this week, so once the job was finnished, went for a run in the early afternoon at St Georges Lake.
Nice to get to run somewhere different, what wasn't nice was the tempreture, how do PPL live in places like this, give me Bendigo weather any day (-:

Tuesday Apr 29, 2008 #

RUN warm up/down 10:00 [3] 2.0 km (5:00 / km)
shoes: Nike Zoom

Pry to interval session, didn't have much time this week, will have to do more in future

RUN intervals 20:00 intensity: (10:00 @3) + (10:00 @5) 4.8 km (4:10 / km)
shoes: Nike Zoom

Bit tired from the weekend, so 1st thought was to not do intervals this week, but then, that is lacking disapline, so did them at a comfortable pace, better to have the commitment to do them, than to do nothing.

Was suprisingly happy with how it went, got into it about half way and got back to the start with plenty of time to go

RUN warm up/down 5:00 [3] 1.0 km (5:00 / km)
shoes: Nike Zoom

Had very little time to do a proper warmdown, so kept it short

Sunday Apr 27, 2008 #

RUN warm up/down 5:00 [3] 0.9 km (5:33 / km)

Easy run to the start with Warren, bit cold )-;

ORIENTEERING ◪ race (Franklin Gorge) 55:15 [5] *** 10.1 km (5:28 / km)
ahr:150 max:169 spiked:14/16c shoes: Teva #2

Had a staged start, 1 min int, Warren, Bryan, Leon, Me, Bruce.
Bit rusty on one, not sure about things on the way to 2, but then saw Leon, who was in more bother than me, got 2 eventully, saw Bruce.

Decided that I would not get in the race between Leon and Bruce, but sit back watching L, so I could give him some hints after. L was going well, straight alot of the times, and using his speed to keep up to Bruce.

Once we got out of the steep stuff, L opened up and went to the front, I dropped out the back and tried to hang on, they cracked me through 10, 11, 12, but I somehow got back in contact at 13 and tried to hold on as there was only 1.5 k to go. Leon was going very well, and I thought he had Bruce and I under control, but just as it looked like he had it in the bag, he decided to go walkabout on the way to the last. I tried to run Bruce down, but it was to much to ask

Leon ran very well, leading for most of the way through the last 1/2 of the course. Ruby won, Bryan bet me, but only by 9 secs. Good field, Ruby, Robbie, Bruce, Bryan, Leon, Dave, Liggo, Me, Warren all under 60 min

RUN warm up/down 10:00 [3] 2.0 km (5:00 / km)
shoes: Teva #2

Went with B & L, L wanted to find some of the marshes that are mapped, been a long time since they were wet, nearly got lost as we didn't take a map

Saturday Apr 26, 2008 #

RUN 10:00 [3]

Ran to the start, was written on the info sheet that it was 5 mins away, that had been crossed out and replaced with 10, then 20. Anyway, took me about 10, maybe not. The warm up was through some of the best terrain on the map, pity they wouldn't set the courses in the good stuff

ORIENTEERING ◪ race (Glenluce) 44:11 [5] *** 7.9 km (5:36 / km)
ahr:151 max:163 spiked:9/11c

Was meant to be middle distance race, but at over 7 k it was going to be hard to get 35 mins. Only 11 controls, so not even a middle distance course, this is area with some mining and erosion, but we never got to run in the best bit.

1st control = pit, so OK, will give that mining, even if it is in a gully we have to run down 2 = broad gully, not mining, 3 = boulder, same as 2, 4 = rockface, ditto 2, 5 = watercourse end, When the F*** are we going to use the mining. 6 = rockface, say no more, 7 = rocky ground, as above, 8 = boulder, should be back at Kooyoora, 9 = spur, hurrah, finally a gold mining area control, 10 = high point, Yes Ok, it is a mining control site, trouble is it is on top of the ONLY hill in the area, what are they thinking, 11 = between knolls, best site of the day, but it is the last control, and it is not far from a track.

Maybe I'm spoilt with Diamond Hill on my backdoor step, but it isn't that hard to set a good course. To put the icing on the cake, thay had a remote finish, what is the thinking behind that, remote start, remote finish, remote assembly, what the hell are thay up to.

The best bit is I came 2nd, Liggo was on something that made him run faster, bet Bruce, Rueben and most important of all, my nephews

RUN warm up/down 10:00 [3]

After the race

shoes: Nike Bike shoes #1

RUN 52:42 [3] 10.41 km (5:04 / km)
shoes: Nike Zoom

Spent most of the day on my feet taking Castlemaine School kids around Orienteering courses, so when it got time for me to go for a run, I needed the rest. So this became a late run, not much light, so over OTH, haven't done this run since I shifted to Lawson St, I think I have got spoilt with Diamond Hill. Still a nice run, up Mandurang Rd, then to the top, back down the other side pass the Uni. Good run to do when the light is fading

Tuesday Apr 22, 2008 #

RUN 5:00 [3] 1.0 km (5:00 / km)

After intervals went to the track to catch up with LK, and to warm down. No LK, and I spent 30 mins talking Track politics, so only a short warm down

Jells Park relays, last leg for the Bendigo 40+ team. 10.56 for the 1st lap and put in on the 2nd to run 11.02, so no negative split, but well raced. have to start doing some training if I want to get faster.

Race 1, (Easy) Started in front of B then L. B got pass on the way to 4, but I got it 1st then he missed 6 so L and I went pass and L was to fast for me to the finish

Race 2, (Hard) Simaliar story with B, he got pass me many times and I got him back, in the end he had me at the finish line.

Race 3, (Moderate) Toph joined in (had been resting) he was flying so I didn't keep up, 2 loops and as I came into the last, B came into his last (different) Bugger it, he got me again.

Race 4, (Hard) 16 variations, 22 controls in 2 k. Kept my head for most of it, finally bet L, he had been to far out in front in race 2 and 3. No sprint finish this time, and my best place.

CW around the Res, but not beside the fence, ran Murray's track to KG Rd, then back to the fence till DH Rd, down Pipeline to Pylon Track on DH map, then along to Golden Gully, there was a control burn going on there, but only a small area. Back home through Nth end of DH, pass the Faugh a Ballagh dam, which is full!!!

Felt a little tired, combination of not having done ints. for a while, and the 1/2 that I ran 2 days ago

Right calf a little sore

RUN race (Eaglehawk 1/2 Marathon) 1:27:47 [4] 21.1 km (4:10 / km)
ahr:156 max:187 shoes: Nike Zoom

Never liked this 1/2 Marathon, 2 times around a loop course with a turn around on the Neilbourgh Rd hill. Hadn't planned to do this, but when I looked around for a run this weekend, this was the only thing on, so the plan was to finish, as I dont have a very good record on this course.

4.06 1st hill
4.05 Another hill
3.51 Down hill
4.06 Finish of 1st lap
4.28 Bit of a hill not noticed on 1st lap
4.17 Down hill, just going easy
4.22 1st hill again
4.29 Starting to feel it bad
4.12 Up Simpsons Rd, this is where I normally crack
4.13 Feeling good, must have taken it to easy earlier

Well I acheived what I wanted, and I pushed up SimpsonsRd well, was helped that someone got up to 5m behind with 2.5 k to go, cant let them get you after doing all that work.

Charles Chambers did 83, should be able to do that if I race, might do that next time.


My PB for 25k is 85, so slowed down some 4 or so Km in the last 10 years, oh well, at these I'm still running

Marked the 1st control in the wrong place so DNF, got to where I marked it, No control so ran on, caught Kido 6 min at 6, but then missed 9 and got caught again.
