Warm up

Orienteering - race 1:21:32 [3] 6.37 mi (12:48 / mi)

SOL 3 Brown - Falkland

I was pretty nervous about how tough this was going to be, and my heart wasn’t really in it from the start, lumbering around the deep heather, not at all cleanly, and fairly half heartedly. Had a gel up the hill after 8 then felt much better, and got going on the fell. The rest of the course was lots of fun, and I felt much fresher in the second half than my training back ground and general shape deserved! Always nice.

1 PM

Orienteering - race 26:35 [3] 3.07 mi (8:40 / mi)

Tentsmuir, Middle.

Ran really hard to try to beat Megan’s time. Might have had more fun / done better had Ray not told me what it was and I just ran in a bit more relaxed fashion. Reminded me what running hard feels like. Some misses, but not enough to quite hit Megan’s time - very impressive!
5 PM

Orienteering - race 21:00 [3] 2.59 mi (8:07 / mi)

Sprint Falkland

Set off too hard doing a 180 to number 1 and never really settled after that. Got a bit flippant on the easy bit at the end and made a humongous mistake (nearly 2mins), so wasn’t too fussed when I found out that I had missed number 11.

Road running 6:37 [3] 0.73 mi (9:04 / mi)

Cross training 51:00 [3] 6.15 mi (8:18 / mi)

Still staggeringly exhausted. Brain fog-tastic. But I needed to take Lucy to rugby and the van is unwell, so we cycled. Then I ran back from Meggetland over South (West) Craiglockhart, BBVP, and Braids.

To Meggetland to pick up Lucy and my bike.

Tuesday Apr 9 #

Note

Daily life is quite exhausting. Especially when you are an insomniac. But for various reasons the last three days I have taken as holiday from work, and yesterday the kids had classes that coincided to give me the first official 90 mins peace for about 4 months. This was fatal. I had a relaxing day. When I relax, I realise how crippling tired I am, so instead of going for a second run, I fell asleep on the sofa at 9pm, waking up really confused 2 hours later. Then went upstairs for further sleep.
