Thursday Aug 8 #

My calves are so weak! How?!
3 PM

ahr:143 slept:9.0 weight:72.5kg

Did the first 20km with Lochy and I noticed after about 13km that he was becoming fairly quiet. Yeh he bonked pretty hard.

Got going a bit in the last section but I didn't push super hard, just aiming for time on feet today.

Wednesday Aug 7 #

Orienteering (Braye Park at night) 26:15 [4] 4.93 km (5:19 / km) +186m 4:29 / km

Bit of night-O training at Braye Park. Braye park certainly lived up to its well earned reputation as a Jolly place for men to rendezvous for late night meetings.

Orienteering (control picking up.) 12:16 [2] 2.24 km (5:29 / km) +78m 4:40 / km

12 PM

Running (New Watch Day!) 1:12:55 [3] 14.7 km (4:58 / km) +414m 4:21 / km
ahr:147 max:177 slept:8.0 weight:71.9kg

The new watch arrived today. Amazfit Stratos, which is a Chinese brand that I picked up on Amazon. Actually really pleased with it! $260 and you get fantastic value for money. It seems like it does pretty much everything that other watches that cost around $600 are doing.

The Salomon Speed 2s today and I have to say they've been pretty disappointing. Not very flexible and they seem to slow me down somehow.

Tuesday Aug 6 #

Running tempo (Tempo) 1:11:00 [4] 18.0 km (3:57 / km)
slept:6.5 weight:72.7kg

Nice bit of threshold in the evening. Actually felt OK doing 20 mins at 3:26/km pace today.

Didn't get much sleep last night so it was a bit of a struggle to stay away today.

Monday Aug 5 #

Running (Mixed trail and road) 1:23:00 [3] 18.69 km (4:26 / km) +365m 4:03 / km
slept:9.0 weight:71.9kg

Nice little evening run in with some glenrock and finishing up with fernleigh track. No pain after yesterday.

Strength and Conditioning (Core Session) 40:00 [3]

Sunday Aug 4 #

Orienteering race (State League 11) 1:24:00 [4] *** 15.68 km (5:21 / km) +367m 4:48 / km
shoes: X-talon 220 (May 2017)

A slight improvement on yesterday, but just lots of mistakes again. Didn't really put any thought into proper risk assessment when making route choices. I need to practice taking high % routes and executing them well.

Physically felt fantastic. Never felt close to bonking or losing power, which is a fantastic omen for Aus champs this year, as well as forthcoming trail race projects.
