RUN (Mt Macedon) 1:35:00 [3]

Went down to Macedon with Leon and Bryan to run with Troy, didn't know if I should do this as I had just done the longest run for the year two days ago.
Not to bad on the climb, but felt a little tired, once I hit the top, I pushed the pace as often as I could. Instigated more surges than anyone else, and never won one. Very good fun, and felt good at the end.

Monday Mar 19, 2007 #

ROAD BIKE 1:05:00 [3]

Nice ride with Shamus and my sister, Shamus was playing games, either sitting on your wheel, sprinting for KOM points or dropping out the back, even gave a passing motorist the bird.
I let him have a couple of KOM, made made him work hard for it though. Went Burns St, back to Tannery, and around OTH

MTB 10:00 [3]

Car ran out of petrol, so had to go and get some. Got there and found out I forgot to put on my helmet, so came home through the cemetery.

Sunday Mar 18, 2007 #

ORIENTEERING ◪ (Rogaine) 2:43:32 [4]

Ran with Troy and Bruce in the Porcupine Pursuit rogaine.
Plan was to run hard and long for 3 hrs, Troy was going well and Bruce was with him most of the way, I dropped of a bit about 90 mins, but kept up towards the end. Tried to race Troy to the 2nd last control, lost that as well. 163 mins was shorter than planned, but it was the right time to come in, no need to over do it, Easter is only 3 weeks away

Friday Mar 16, 2007 #

ORIENTEERING ◪ race 1:07:00 [5]

Felt good tonight, pack was Myself, Toph, Leon and Birchy, 1st control just down the street from my house, then next behind Clara's house. (was Charles going to go cut the corner through his block) Bit of Forest tonight, Toph was the 1st to go another way, then Birchy dropped of, Leon started to go home and I was enjoying myself so much, so I disregarded the watch and got all but 1 control, came in 7 mins late, so penalised 210 points, to put it at 460, 50 points behind Toph's winning score,


All in all, a good days training, back to work tomorrow

MTB 1:20:00 [3] 28.0 km (2:51 / km)

Meant to be a easy ride, felt tired to start with and only felt a little better when I finished. Through Diamond Hill and Kangaroo Gully to the main Coliban channel, and back home around the Res

RUN tempo 30:00 [4]

Finished my ride at 1pm, and while I was eating lunch I got a call to be at work by 3.30, didn't finish there until 7.30, so this run was done mostly in the dark, good thing there are street lights about. Up Spring Gully road to the Pub, then did a couple of 1200's down pass the aths track, then home via Paterson and Masefeild St

Warm up before event

ORIENTEERING ◪ race 53:55 [5]

Bunjil Spirit (Little Forest) Once again a fast start, 1st main error on 6, then another small one on the way to 8, started to run down the wrong spur going to 13.

Started 1 min behind Luise, 2 behind Bruce and 3 behind Yasmine, saw Luise running down wrong spur at 3, never saw Bruce, and took me until 13 to get in front of Yasy, maybe i was not running as well as I thought )-; Enjoyed the run in a nice area.

MTB warm up/down 20:00 [3]

Needed to relax a little after the last 2 days of racing, so easy ride up Diamond Hill and home via the creek


Might have to go out and do some more training, Clara is in front of me by 25.54 for the week )-;

ORIENTEERING ◪ 20:00 [3]

Ran around with Max, putting out tapes for Troysie's training exercise, nearly got ran down by the pack a number of times.

ORIENTEERING ◪ race (Eureka Challenge) 48:05 [5]

Fast start, saw Dave just as I entered the complex stuff for the 1st time, he was navigating well through those controls, put the pace on for the long leg, but couldn't drop him, caught Toph as well. Lost my head as we went into the Southern controls, (I was in front of Bruce till 14, and Bryan at about 10) Finally made it out onto a track, Toph cracked but Dave sat in the, then for no reason he was gone, ran the last long leg home well.

Apart from finding the map hard to read in places, was mostly happy with how it all went
