Orienteering race 40:00 [5]

3rd leg of the relay. Ran pretty cleanly and was chuffed that the team managed to get a podium slot.

Running warm up/down 20:00 [1]

Orienteering race 1:40:00 [5]

British Champs. I was rubbish - just couldn't get into the map. To start with I was making minor mistakes (less than 30secs) just not spiking controls, but on last 1/3 made a number of minute plus mistakes, the like of which I had not seen for a while. Deserved to be relegated to 2nd team in relay, and needed to give myself a bit of a talking to.

Running 30:00 [1]

Easy run with OJ, putting world to rights. OJ wondered whether jogging in pairs made us look a bit gay? (we weren't even wearing 3/4 lycra tights!) Trespassed a bit on route but managed not to get shouted at by the farmer (think he must have been homophobic!).

Orienteering 30:00 [3]

Easy jogging, doing map memory legs around Walkley (exercise set and run by Coach Clare night before). Fun exercise- something I might try and encompass at the end of runs more often.

Cycling 1:10:00 [1]

Cycling to and from work. Really sleepy in the morning and got there on auto pilot. Home was usual slog.

Orienteering 1:00:00 [4]

Trains around Beeley. Some of it was really nice. This is a real technical forest physically to run through with steep up and down hills. Really enjoyed myself.


Stopped off on way home from Beeley to vote. Wearing lycras and a planet fear top.

Running 1:15:00 [2]

Run with map, up the parks. Gorgeous day. Reminded me of when I used to live on Eccie road and was footloose and fancy free.

S+C 55:00 [3]

Tough session, could feel weights on my lower back but technique was sound enough.

Orienteering 1:00:00 [3]

Run around Surprise view around a great course supplied by OJ. Really enjoyed it, especially the mining section around Longshaw - I always forget how good it is.

Orienteering pretty smoothly with no significant misses.

Running 40:00 [1]

Easy lunch time run with a map. Lovely day.

Running intervals 35:00 [3]

Intervals on a gusty, but sunny track. Did 6x500 (1.27,1.22,1.23,1.24,1.24,1.23) with approx 1.30 recovery, then 4x300m (48,47,46,47) and then 4x250m (37,38,37,38) with 75 seconds recovery between each of the last two efforts and 2 minutes between sets. Felt stiff at start of session but became easier as it went on.

Still don't understand how Jason can "float" so quickly. Legs are going to be stiff tomorrow and heel was a bit sore after session on warm down.

Running warm up/down 50:00 [1]


Girls were conspicuous by their absence tonight - hope they had a good time "wining and dining" at Jamie's hen night.

S+C 50:00 [3]

Core circuit. Starting at 7.00am really hurts and doesn't help my coordination when I start my warm up of ladder drills.

Felt alive by the end though. Started to include some old school exercises like burpees but really trying to focus on a quality explosiveness of movement and they are all surprisingly tough!
