Went to go to the gym this morning but turns out Ringsend Stadium only opens at 10 so I ended up in work really early. Damn. I guess I'll just leave really early now and go to the gym afterwards.
Stretching (+ rolling) 26:00 
Calves very tight and body in general quite tight. Need to do more of this.

3x 1 mile 60s rest
Small but slower than last week but nothing to be worried about. Much windier and warmer. Also slightly different course meant tighter bends.
First day in ages that I didn't really feel like going training beforehand but I was grand once I got out.
6:53, 6:48, 6:44

shoes: Inov8 X-Talon
Forgot my GPS today. Started feeling a bit weak but built into pretty decently. Bit rough out weather wise maybe should have more gear.
October done. Good job. Consistency was good.
Did less than half the amount of strength work of September so I have to watch that. Was impacted by RTC week but I should still be doing it. Calves were a bit tight agfter Waterford so should start doing some more rolling.
I think I should have a slightly easier week so I might take it easy on Saturday and try and take the Munsters relatively seriously. Need to make a general plan for the rest of the year as my old one only went as far as RTC so that might change this week but hopefully shouldn't.
Monday - Waterford urban (done)
Tuesday - crusaders intervals
Wednesday - am gym + pm Ticknock 90 mins
Thursday - ?
Friday - gym
Saturday - easy run
Sunday - MOC

Warm up over to the park, 2 laps then dynamics.
Track will be ready in June is the story. Moving to Ringsend park next week where they will mark out a 400m circuit and some floodlights are ordered.
Running intervals 28:09 5.16 km (5:28 / km) +1m 5:27 / km

6x 800m 90s recovery.
Good long recovery today. They were also slightly longer than 800m (GPS says 810-820). Was in a nice group of 6 working together well with me pacing the first 200m normally and then others doing the rest. everyone very close though.
3:14, 3:10, 3:09, 3:13, 3:08, 3:05
A little slow on the first as was just getting into it and the 4th no one took up the pacing on the second half so I relaxed a bit assuming we were going too fast. Otherwise good. Can probably be doing them a bit faster though. Would be nice to be doing the reps on the same course so that I can see how they compare.
Running warm up/down 11:23 2.04 km (5:35 / km) +3m 5:33 / km
ahr:139 max:147 shoes: Asics Gel 1170

Warming up. Trying to find somewhere to go and then found they needed someone to get the descriptions from registration so I volunteered.

I ran to the car. Not much of a warm down really but off into the town to get dinner with Gina's family before collecting controls.
O-training 58:10 6.6 km (8:48 / km) +64m 8:24 / km
ahr:113 max:147 shoes: VJ Falcon
Collecting controls. Had a lot to pick up so had to do them in kinda waves.
O-training 49:03  *** 4.01 km (12:14 / km) +24m 11:53 / km
ahr:53 max:63 shoes: VJ Falcon
Run out along the beach on Tramore and putting out kites for the junior training. got a bit confused when I first came into the dunes as the map was weird. Hadn't seen human input and was just raw lidar basically. Took a while to get the hang of it.
O-training 28:39 **** 3.07 km (9:20 / km) +3m 9:17 / km
ahr:150 max:167 shoes: VJ Falcon
Technical Junior training course.
The TG classic. Blank out, contours, corridor and control pick.
Contours was a bit pointless as there was nothing else on the map anyway but I tired to use them and not my compass in this part anyway.
Corridor was tricky will have to quick route to see how I did.
Control pick went well apart from the control that wasn't there!
Running 7:52 1.37 km (5:45 / km) +1m 5:43 / km
ahr:152 max:160 shoes: VJ Falcon
Bit of random, relatively high intensity running back towards the cars while everyone tried to tackle each other.
Running warm up/down 28:16 2.14 km (13:12 / km) +12m 12:50 / km
ahr:105 max:134 shoes: VJ Falcon
Jog to the start of the night-o along Tramore Strand again. got wet feet. Bit reminiscent of Jukola with the train of lights behind. Had to wait then to make sure everyone found the start.
Orienteering race 45:17 5.97 km (7:35 / km) +5m 7:33 / km
ahr:169 max:177 shoes: VJ Falcon
Running warm up/down 14:58 2.07 km (7:13 / km) +3m 7:10 / km
ahr:134 max:144 shoes: VJ Falcon
Jog back to the cars with Conor and Eoin.
After I finished I was zipping up my jacket after putting it on. Suddenly I was bowled over by something large. I recovered to see the junior tent flying away in the wind. The other people were on the laptop so I was up and sprinting after it. Of course it was going uphill through the deep marram grass and I was tired but got just enough adrenalin to have almost caught it by the top of the hill at which point I dived over the ridge tackling it to stop it going further. Then lay on it while I tried to find all of the paraphanelia associated with it (there were pegs attempting to kill me) and managed to drag it back to the finish.
Small bit of excitement!
