You'll get your run done when you need to get your run done, I guess, but today that was pretty much midnight. Brought me right back to the streak days, but I love this shit really.
Wanted to do something slightly productive, so settled on a bit of a rolling session.
2k warm up, 3 x 2k tempo (1k float), 2k warm down.
First 2k was good conditions.
Second 2k was a little more off-road, and had a decent hill, however that was followed by a decent descent.
Final 2k was all road, and even net downhill, but fairly vicious headwind.
Overall a decent steady run. Pretty happy with how it went, and how the legs are feeling (much better than during the sprints at the weekend).

Armagh Sprint Quali
Started fine through the first few, still with Dane who started same minute as me at #8, despite one or two little misses.
Got out and had an absolute shocker on #10 which caught a lot of people, but I was more brutal than most. Lost about 90s.
Messy on 12 again and lost 20s. Then fecked 13 and missed another 30s.
Very grim reading altogether.
Then there was #15, and #18 which was at least another 30s.
This was quite the reality check though, now quite keen to race well in sprint again, might take it a little more seriously.

Armagh Sprint Final
Orienteering reasonably well, but had one or two silly routes #4 & #9.
Pushing, but still not got much kick. Legs are absolutely gone the last few days.

Armagh Mas Start thing
Good fun, interesting event.
Not sure about my route through the score, but came out not far behind Tim and some others.
Some issues around the place, really struggling with the shitty torch too, but that was my fault.

Armagh International 5km
Pretty hectic race. Knew everyone would race off the line, so consciously tried to hold back, but inevitably it was still my fastest split.
Garmin made the race a little long, obviously just off. Splits are subsequently a bit short, but still give a measure of pacing, and they're relatively consistent which is good.
Happy enough with the time, last month or two haven't been great due to various little injuries, so this is as much as I could have hoped for I reckon. Not too bad for February. Content.
Started watch as I crossed the line, and got 16:24, official time 16:26 on chip - there was no timing marker on the start line though.
