Trail running 28:00 [3] 2.5 mi (11:12 / mi)

We're staying in Chapel stile for the October holidays. Such an amazing part of the world. So many happy memories! Lucy and I walked over to Grasmere, while the boys went biking. Met them there, cafe, then I ran back to get the van. Legs are shot, foot is f'ed, but I loved it. Happy heart! Even Lucy didn't seem to mind the walk - wow.

Road running 31:23 [3] 4.2 mi (7:28 / mi)

Fra relays. Hbt had 5 really good runners, and then umm, no one. Captain Sarah O'Neill spelled it out to me a few weeks ago at trotettes. Well there was her, who was uncharacteristically super unfit; and the one of the mummies that gave birth in the last few months, and err, me.

It was 4.2k and 300m climb. Straight up and back, rough and tussocky, so it suited me ok. I tried to start off hard, but am out of shape so there was a lot of trying to get past people later on, but that is always satisfying. I think I was back 5th girl, 2 mins down. I'll take that. Jill and Claire were solid in leg 2, Megan and Briony's were awesome on leg 3 really nailing the nav leg leaving Georgia loads of time to take the victory. Nice! Very happy brown masses.

Trail running 15:00 [3] 1.0 mi (15:00 / mi)

A little jogette with Hollie. She was doing a warm down, like every pro should, and I was just going along for the chat.

Treadmill running 40:00 [3] 5.0 mi (8:00 / mi)

Treadmill at the commie. It's a sad state of affairs when you can time your 'training run' based on what's on telly. I must plan better next time. My foot was ok during, but not now.

I read the Bof egm thingy today. I don't really mind paying more membership if I thought that it was well run. How about they agree to scrap 'focus' just to pretend to understand the sport a bit. I think we could all do without knowing the 6 months old jk results / have mike Hamilton tell us how grateful we should be that some bloke from british fencing (or wherever) has agreed to be a NED for our pitiful sport / have someone try to justify/explain explorer - sorry Xplorer - again. The kids (who just glance at the pictures briefly) tell me I was in the last one. I was winning something. Jeez - that's how out of date it was!

And parents in sport week - British orienteering interview Hector. What's that all about? The goal for the vast majority of kids (and what parents want for their kids) is to have fun and learn skills and get active. Why not ask parents and family groups at local events how they could be more supported? What have the elites got to do with it? Odd. And this week they are promoting mental health in sport. After reading the bit in compass sport written by Julie Emmerson's parents about JWOC, well I don't think the juniors are treated in a way that promotes good mental health. I am glad that the juniors themselves seem to get lots of support from each other. I
really must remind myself that next time I am bored that the bof website is never a relaxing read.
