Road 40:19 [3] 8.81 km (4:35 / km) +88m 4:22 / km
shoes: Brooks Ghost 9

Muckross

Modified usual loop from the 1st car park. Modifications being more road instead of paths early on. Minding the ankles. Had them taped too. Changes in angle on the road seem to cause trouble, happened once or twice. Also changed lacing on shoes.

Lovely evening. Blue skies.

Think I might have run slightly faster than I wanted to but felt mostly ok.

Thursday Mar 23 #

5 PM

Circuits 50:41 [3]

Tough session.

More upper body than leg work. And as usual core hurt!

Wednesday Mar 22 #

7 PM

Turbo Trainer 20:33 [2]

Avg Cadence = 90rpm

Quick 20 minutes to get something done for the evening. Went to a meeting after work so took some time.

Feeling mostly ok. Right ankle a bit sore, more the muscles around it, will be fine. At least my order of leukotape arrived today!

Tuesday Mar 21 #

5 PM

Road 14:51 [3] 2.81 km (5:17 / km) +11m 5:11 / km
shoes: Brooks Ghost 9

Set out to do run that I've done last few weeks. Happy enough with how legs were feeling for 1st km, but then crossing over the road to get onto the Fossa Way I went over badly enough on my right foot/ankle. Took a few minutes to get over it and then hobbled home.

Pissed off. Not sure why it happened, thinking new runners might be the cause, but could be just looking for excuses.

Think i'll finish off GOT tomorrow just to do something, the episode I didn't manage to complete yesterday.

Monday Mar 20 #

10 AM

Note

Based on next weekend I should be able to manage my ankle without exposing it to much over the next week or so. Keep it stable and let it recover. That being said I suspect clipping in and out of pedals on the bike might be an issue.

Other problem I feel at the moment is that I think that i'm living a bit on the edge in terms of sickness. Was feeling very tired yesterday afternoon after what wasn't that strenuous a morning at Banna. So think there are signs telling me to be careful. Need some more rest and as much sleep as possible.

Monday - Cycling/Turbo (weather dependent)
Tuesday - Running
Wednesday - Rest (think i'll go to a meeting after work)
Thursday - Circuits
Friday - Running
Saturday - Cycling
Sunday - Running (5k, County Roads)
5 PM

Turbo Trainer 34:29 [2]

Avg Cadence = 90rpm

This session finished 20 minutes before it was supposed to, therefore bad session.

Mentally and physically tired, not sure which was worse. Anyways, not a good start to the week. But I did say earlier I need to be careful, this might be taking it to the extreme.

Sunday Mar 19 #

11 AM

Trails/Road warm up/down 10:39 [3] 1.82 km (5:52 / km) +2m 5:50 / km
shoes: Inov X-Talon (Blue)

Warm up with my chauffeur for today, robrunner. Legs alright warming up. Lots of tape on left ankle, hopefully it'll work.

Orienteering race 50:57 [4] **** 7.78 km (6:33 / km) +14m 6:30 / km
17c shoes: Inov X-Talon (Blue)

Banna

Overall my orienteering today was alright. No mistakes as such, just a few hesitations.

Main problem for me today was a physical one. Knew it wasn't going to be a good day on the way to the 1st control, didn't feel great. Think main issue was a lack of confidence in my ankle, which worked out as slowing my legs down. I didn't do too much damage to it running, just a couple of tweaks, but never really felt like I was running fast. There were times I knew I could have run faster on the course but didn't have the trust in my ankle to do it.

Probably spent too long looking for the missing control too.

QuickRoute

Trails/Road warm up/down 12:32 [3] 1.6 km (7:50 / km) +5m 7:43 / km
shoes: Inov X-Talon (Blue)

Opposite direction to warm up, again with robrunner. Legs in gentle not feeling too bad apart from left ankle which was sore. Don't think I did any additional damage. Sore later on too and ice pack out.
