(rest day)

Went to do tuesday speed session but when I started running my problematic left calf was really complaining quite a lot. I'm not sure if it's a muscular or skeletal issue. I remember the same pain back at Easter. It seems to go away if I train every day but if I rest it gets way worse.

So I'm in two minds here but I kinda want to take this week off and see what happens to it. I've got the iTrail on sunday so I've got a few days with no running to see what.

Orienteering race (Aus Middle) 46:00 [3] ***** 5.0 km (9:12 / km)
rhr:39 weight:71kg

Punched 9, thought it was 8. Went off in direction I thought 9 was. Couldn't relocate after 15 minutes. Ran back.

Orienteering (Take 2) 1:00:00 [3] ***** 7.0 km (8:34 / km)

Took a map and went out again. 1st 7 controls easy. My technique seems to work fine for the controls that weren't in those sheets of bare rock. Then made exactly the same mistake I made the first time on the way to 8, heading almost to 9 and I spent probably 10 minutes trying to figure out what I'd done.

Control 11 I lost concentration at some point on another tricky control and fluffed that one up too. Once you lose contact on the bare rocks you're basically hoping against hope that you find something that looks different enough to relocate on. After 11 it was all smooth. Normal granite seems fine... just can't handle the cascades. I needed to get out finish this course.. glad to see the ass end of cascades after it completely destroyed me.

Running warm up/down 20:00 [3]
