Running 2:30:00 [2]

Long group run. Went out along bottom of Rivelin, up to conduit, High Neb, Stanage Pole and back home along the top of Rivelin. The route we were taking changed about 5 times during the run, but in the end we judged it about right.
Managed to keep Nails under control for most of the run which was an achievement in itself.

Running race 32:58 [5] 10.0 km (3:18 / km)

Kathy and Clare arranged to do a 10k at Rother Valley and I tagged along. Really hot day, with a nice breeze around the lake. Parking was a bit of a nightmare (needed an orienteering marshal to take control).

Ran a pb of 32:58 which was nice, particularly as I hadn't prepared for it in the slightest. Wish I could of stayed longer with the guy in front who ran 32:10. As Shep would say MikeS was impressive (he smashed his pb by 45 secs). Won in a very respectable 30:33.

Running warm up/down 30:00 [3]

Running 30:00 [3]

Steady arvo run with Mike to clear some of the crap from my legs. Ran back via Mike's house to pick up some stuff we had left in Dave's car.......

Running 45:00 [3]

Run up through Hillsborough then a lap of Loxley. Lovely night for it. Took a map of high dam with me again and practised using a magnifying glass.

Spotted and followed some old hashing marks for a time, but resisted shouting "on on".

S+C 50:00 [3]

Another early morning S+C session - 7.00 start. Introduced some new exercises - mainly built around core and strengthening hip strength. Seemed to hit the spot.

Orienteering intervals 45:00 [4]

Trains with Nails and Sprot junior at Strines (shh! don't tell anyone). Some of it was gorgeous, most of it was not.

Tough training but good courses planned by Neil. Felt ok and technique was solid. Dave was running well and Nails showed a turn of speed on the last downhill loop - nice hurdling skills!

Clare and Kathy were 15 minutes late back to the car (we were 14 but that didn't matter).

Running 30:00 [3]

Running between trains.

Running 45:00 [2]

Left Clare to drive the newly mended car back home and decided to run back. Lovely evening, but could feel the pollen in the air.

Orienteering 35:00 [3]

Sheffield O training - cruised round the course, trying to run at even pace whole way round. Did not quite manage this, the Bermuda triangle that is Greno got the better of me again and again....Parts of the forest were dead sexy still.

S+C 50:00 [3]

standard sesh - nuff said


Found out today that I will be running the WCs in Finland (owing to Murray withdrawing). Really pleased and keen to make the most of the opportunity available to me.

Running warm up/down 30:00 [1]

Warming up / down. Felt tired and sluggish on way out but perkier on way back. Bumped into Ash who also did 3.13 for the marathon, looks like he, Mark and Ant Squire all ran within 2 minutes of each other. Rob Little ran 1.15 for first half and 3 hours 15 for the second - apparently his knees locked (ouch).

Running intervals 30:00 [5]

5 x 1 miles (with 1 min recovery) - ran round usual road route. Felt strong.

Running 32:00 [3]

Run with map (of High Dam) around the streets - want to get in the habit of getting in steady Monday runs again like I did in the winter.

Nearly got hit by 1 car and 1 bike (and not coz I was reading the map) - would have been fun to have been running with Nails because I am sure we would have got ourselves into a punch up!
