Nice week. Performance was under par on the long distance. After some thoughts I'm fairly sure this was due to doing too much in the week before it. While I have been doing more training recently I wasn't ready for double hour sessions of relatively high intensity. I then didn't react properly to my legs being tired and just kept doing stuff. The result being my legs wanted to do nothing in the long distance.

I think this could have been solved by simply taking it a little easier on Thursday and having an easy jog on Friday. Live and learn.

I was happy enough with the relay given what had happened the day before. Felt decent running though the speed still wasn't perfect.

Actual orienteering all weekend was pretty good with no.8 on the really the only thing I am upset about. The training worked from that point of view and my approach of finding the control feature with >95% certainty ensured I read the map and had an attackpoint as necessary.

Plan for the Week:
Monday - rest (5 year anniversary with Ginaa so doing some stuff)
Tuesday - crusaders intervals
Wednesday - Ticknock 80 mins
Thursday - o-intervals
Friday - gym
Saturday - waterford training
Sunday - LL Castlecomer (will do either green or a middle style course)

SHI Relays - Leg 3 Ireland team 2

Colm was a bit slow on leg 1 and then Jack was solid so I was a bit down going out. Certainly by myself.

There wasn't much on the line as the welsh team had goen out 15 mins in front of me but I still ran hard on the off-chance that both him and Ger messed up and I would be able to secure the points for Ireland.

Nice area. tough enough running and wasn't that hard orienteering as there were big features around to use.
Happy with this run, felt good mostly. Had one weak point going to 8 where I stopped paying attention and veered left. Corrected and < 1 min lost. Otherwise focus was good and I was finding the controls really solidly. More of this will be great.

Running 8:23 1.21 km (6:56 / km) +2m 6:53 / km

Bit of a jog around after. Legs didn't feel terrible.

Running warm up/down 10:00 [2]
shoes: VJ Falcon

Jog to the start and up and down the track. Legs didn't really seem to want to turn on and I was trying to do something to get some response from them. Seemed to have been successful just before the start.

SHI Long - Balmoral

Ugh my legs. Just never got them moving and felt sluggish for the entire course. Tried to plod on and fight through it. Had a few sparks of life on 6, 9, 16, 17 (the downhill legs) and managed a 13th and 20th split on 6 and 16 respectively. Orienteering was pretty sweet though. Not more than 20s lost on any control and only 2 bigger than 10s.

Jog around with Roisin and Cliona. Legs still feeling dead.

Muir of Dinnet.

Visited up some random controls and put in a few extra myself. Relatively high intensity which I may come to regret.
