Orienteering 1:10:00 [4] 10.0 km (7:00 / km)

Harvester - 5th leg. Got woken up by Nick B, telling me that Sprotty was due to finish in 10 minutes - not late again! Turns out he got the timings wrong and, as planned he came in 30 minutes later.

Had a very steady run, with a big mistake at 1 and then a few other minor misses. Was dark for 3/4 of the race and then started to get light. Had fun and was glad that we took the trophy home again for another year.

Storming run by Andy P who has my nomination for run of the day.

Running 10:00 [2] 1.0 mi (10:00 / mi)

Warm up / down.

Running warm up/down 30:00 [2] 3.0 mi (10:00 / mi)

Lots of running around between races.

Orienteering 24:00 [5] 3.0 mi (8:00 / mi)

JOK chasing sprint first round. Felt like a clean run, but looks like I didn't get all the best route choices (from winsplits). One minute down on Neil who has a rocket up his arse at the moment!

Orienteering 22:00 [5] 3.0 mi (7:20 / mi)

Chasing sprint round 2. Lots of sledging in the queue to the start which was fun, unfortunately it didn't really work as I didn't see a male runner during the entirety of my run. Was announced at the spectator control as being about 1 minute down - so knew that not much chance of catching up, and that all I could do was stay clean for the rest of the race. Then proceeded to make a 1 minute mistake on a 30 second leg. Still didn't see anyone but didn't hang around for the rest of the race...


Was due to meet Mike at 9.30, so set my alarm for 8.15 (well so I thought). Alarm didn't go off, but my phone did at 9.45 waking me up. Mike was wondering where I was. Couldn't believe I slept so hard - obviously I needed it. Bit of a panic pack, and had my cereal in car on the way to the race.

Running 20:00 [2] 2.0 mi (10:00 / mi)

Just an easy run home after a pretty stressful day at work and a nasty meeting to end off the day.

Thursday May 15, 2008 #

Running 20:00 [2] 2.0 mi (10:00 / mi)

Run to work - tried to keep it steady.

Running 1:00:00 intensity: (12:00 @2) + (48:00 @4) 9.0 mi (6:40 / mi)

Foxdahl intervals up the valley from Endcliffe park. Felt strongish which was a relief following on from how I had felt during the week.


Good to catch up with Shep at the pub for a few warm beers. Great that he had made it to Blighty!

Wednesday May 14, 2008 #

Running 22:00 [2] 3.0 mi (7:20 / mi)

Run to work in the morning - still feeling a bit sluggish and glands a bit swollen.

Running warm up/down 20:00 [2] 2.0 mi (10:00 / mi)

Warm up with Mike and then a warm down around the yellow course picking up some controls.

Orienteering 40:00 [4] 5.0 mi (8:00 / mi)

Eccleshall Woods - Spring Cup event. 2 errors and a few wobbles but generally pretty good. My aim was to keep clean with my head up. Really enjoyable course, but the vegetation is certainly on the way up!

Tuesday May 13, 2008 #

Running 24:00 [2] 3.0 mi (8:00 / mi)

Steady run in to work. Throat a little sore and feeling a bit sluggish. Half marathon obviously took more out of me than I thought!

Running 45:00 [3] 6.0 mi (7:30 / mi)

Run home - was planning on running out to see the fell race but left work too late and was feeling a bit tired so had a steady jog home.

Nothing today - just soaking up some recovery. Legs feeling pretty good, but feeling tired.
