Sunday Jan 21 #

(rest day)

Legs, & RH achilles sore.
travel back in repulsive, sickening weather, to Bristol
11 AM

Orienteering race 1:07:28 [5] 12.2 km (5:32 / km) +113m 5:17 / km
shoes: Mud Claw 333

BOK Yoxter Ranges Brown - 10.7km, 85m

5th 67:28 Adam 55, CLive 65

Good run. Achilles (RH) sore at first. Groan. some small errors in circle; nothing major. Miss at no 2 cos couldn't stay on bearing thru the splodgy green.

Good "relay" practice later when "passed" by a QO M45 who then tried to race me. Got away only to be caught on the line as my "safe" / "game over" route to the last control cost me 20 seconds probably, and sadly let Matthew Owen scalp me today. Turned out I'd caught the QO guy 10 minutes.....

Wondering if I'll barely scrape into the BOK M50 "B" team now, what with Clive,a very very fit Richard Cottle, Ifor the relay solid man, (new to M50), and Matthew Owen. I'm 5th or 6th string now?

Saturday Jan 20 #


Note: drive to Winchester (tired / rain / dark) for step-sister's 50th. Major night of major drinking (mixing drinks) etc. Good, but not healthy.

Friday Jan 19 #

2 PM

Running 36:05 [3] 7.2 km (5:01 / km) +141m 4:34 / km
shoes: Brookes Ravenna 8

Got broken PC back from PC repair man - £60 gone.

Steady run, including parts of the Eastville park run that killed me 2 weeks ago.

Segments that I repeated, i was vastly slower on, today, which is odd as I was at death's door during the park run. & felt i was hardly moving. Time to do another soon?

Thursday Jan 18 #

13.5 hour day , meeting in Southampton general hospital with national ME/CFS bigwigs.

cycled 40 mins (to station & back 13 hours later)

Wednesday Jan 17 #

6 PM

Running 17:00 [2] 2.0 mi (8:30 / mi) +20m 8:15 / mi
shoes: Brookes Ravenna 8

Steady jog, to see if osteopath treatment was settling down / help it settle; post 2 hours indoor UCR climb with Clio, which went well. despite shoulder & being weak / unfit. Planning a trip to Spain post-JK with her to do some sport climbing in the sun.

Tuesday Jan 16 #

(rest day)

Letting osteo treatment settle down.

3 km walk in ashton court.

Still rather tired, maybe I'm just old/beaten up.

Monday Jan 15 #

(rest day)

Osteopath (Lisa) - good sesh. Quite a violent one - but giving my still-swollen stomach care.

My "tilted pelvis" (kimb is / was right!) is no big deal at all - Lisa said I've had a pelvis like that since she first treated me in 1996.

Helen update- scan shows its "just" a 1cm lower calf tear. So hopefully not so serious, then. Dear me.
