Warm Up/Down 10:00 [3]

Orienteering race (Welsh Champs Methyr Mawr) 40:00 [3]

Yeah it was a shocker!
1/ good
2/ slight hesitation but good
3/slight miss but good
4/good and caught my 2 min man ifor and 1min man
5/ lost contact and couldn't work out the veg so they got away
7/missed but saw it poor compass work
7/took the lead good
8/ really nice got a distance now and nailed it
9/miles the wrong way as veg just couldn't make sense of and went too far south
10/ hit 10 before 9 so easy
11-13/Ifor had got away again and so legged it to catch him up and nailed them all in some hard legs

14/ Basically I got ahead of Ifor again but couldn't work out what to do as I couldn't see if there was some good route choice, looking at it now I should have followed the fence and come across.
What I actually did was run probably about 1.5km the wrong way just trying to hit the river, I hit the estuary and then found control 19 before anything made sense!!!

15-28/ Gave up as had so little motivation that I probably would ahve messed the others up so just ran the last couple of controls, still messed them up lol

Overall great training and glad I went, I am not even that annoyed by how I did as I don't think competition was really on my mind today :)

Warm Up/Down 30:00 [3]

Really good workout so great prep! In a really good mood, love how my race mentality has switched from nerves to interested to see how I get on.

Running race (Blaise Castle Gwent Leagu) 35:43 [3] 9.6 km (3:43 / km)


I have had a really bad cold all week and training had been varied and so my main purpose of running today was to keep my fitness level high, aim was to beat Jarlath and Duncan.

Started really well not too fast and found a group with Jarlath that was just out of my comfort zone, Duncan was one group ahead but I wasn't really that worried about him.
Then second lap we passed Duncan and he couldn't hold on but then half way through neither could I and found myself in no mans land.
Tried to keep the pace high but it was sometimes really hard and I really lacked some fight.
Then third lap pretty much held on got passed y a couple who I just couldn't hold onto. Then bridge back up to a Bristol and West guy but he paced it too hard at the finish and I couldn't hold on.
Really pleased with 24th as I am pretty sure is was out of 300+ guys and a good quality field and definitely was a good performance.


So psyched for Welsh Champs tomorrow the area is legit!

casual but feeling sluggish

Warm Up/Down 30:00 [3]

Made the bus at 8 for the way back yay!

Intervals (Chris's Session) 20:00 [3]

I think 8x600m but not sure, we were going too quick for it to be that distance.
Very easy session but it was perfect for this weekend. Worked really well at the front with this guy, basically we would take it in turns at the front.
Wasn't sure whether I wanted to go but I am glad I did. Poor turnout though and Keith was coaching just one guy which was quite funny.

Running 1:00:00 [3]

Only the second long run I have ever been on with XC. Really good route and funny conversation. Upped the pace for the hill back and was just going at standard speed but then someone was keeping with me so I pushed a bit thinking it was Ben and he shouldn't be able to keep with me, kept pushing all the way to the top shocked that Ben was still with me, turns out it was John haha

Running 40:00 [3]

Very casual run with a friend, probably not what I should be doing on a Tuesday but couldn't be bothered to do intervals.
