NGOC Level C League event at Chalford - Brown 8.3km


Foot passed a runnablity test after my WU so therefore I was going to at least try. Was never going to give it the full beans though as it was mostly an urban area so more impact. Really enjoyed it though, small alleys on steep sided hill similar to continental urbans, and i did make a small mistake due to missing an alley.

Definitely trainers were the right choice but I was cursing the planner who recommended this option when i slipped over on the muddy hill to 2.

Foot was say 50% better this morning which relieved me in'ts not anything serious. Something is inflamed or not right so icing it now. Will go cycling later if it stops raining.

5.92km +618m avg 11.5km/h

6 x 5 minutes Overbury Hill reps. Waited long enough during the day that it had stopped raining. Thought about just cruising round for 90 mins but then changed my mind and went to Overbury hill for some hill reps. Last time i did this I only did 5 and still had flat pedals. Relieved that i managed to get past where i did before. Was also only planning on doing 5 but legs weren't screaming yet and it was still light so managed one more.

(rest day)

Unscheduled rest day. Am overdue one though. Raining after work meant no cycling.

Also though foot has been troubling me all day - was fine yesterday while running. Walking really hurts. Hoping it disappears asap but fearing the worst

NGOC MapRun Street Orienteering Event at Newent


Found this one the hardest to plan so far. Also with many of the paths off road, speed was slower so couldn't cover as far. There may be a route that would allow me to get 570 but couldn't see it today.

As per last week, just wanted long and steady. Firstly ran down through the nature reserve which wasn't that intereseting then began my Deerhurst loop. 3 TRC members caught me here so I decided to run with them - I was still able to keep it fairly easy. At Deerhurst we took they extension down to Apperley so ended up being a tiny bit further than intended but was a nice evening.

Short of time so did the session that was posted on the EUOC training page

2 x (1200m (3mins) + 1000m (2.5mins) + 800m (2mins))

Did this on the lovely straight old railway cycle path behind Morrisons. First rep felt like a struggle as legs weren't warmed up yet but after that felt good. Times may have been affected by having an increasingly heavy sodden top as it was raining quite a lot.
