Orienteering race (Relays) 29:31 [4] 2.88 km (10:15 / km) +102m 8:42 / km
ahr:171 max:185 shoes: Salomon XA Pro 3d M+

So in short - I havent run in 8 weeks and of those 8 weeks I have been sick/coughing up delightful thinks every day for the last 5.

My watch gave me an indication at the 10 minute mark of this by saying my recovery indicator is poor. I have never seen poor before even when i have flogged myself and then gone again straight away I got fair. so knew I was in bad shape. HR confirmed it.

Feeling bad by 4 but still had ok pace through until 7 then messed up and overshot 8 and wasted/lost over 5 minutes.

Rest of the course was ok even though I struggled a bit - should have been between 20 and 25 though.

2 PM

Orienteering race (Relays) 28:42 [3] 2.79 km (10:17 / km) +107m 8:38 / km
ahr:172 max:189 shoes: Salomon XA Pro 3d M+

Felt better on the second run even though the big climb from 5-6 was a blow up and resulted int he next few legs being bad but no errors thankfully.

Watch told me HR monitor is low on battery - this surprises me since I got it at xmas! will see if I get the error again and need to get a new battery in or not.

Uneventful run - just getting rust out of system - lots of coughing and spitting required as lungs hopefully clearing themselves finally. guess I will know tomorrow.

Just for the hell of it going on a run tonight too.
8 PM

Running (Night Run) 1:25:31 [3] 9.81 km (8:43 / km) +171m 8:01 / km
ahr:152 max:177 shoes: ASICS GEL - Nimbus 17

So figured after not running for 8 weeks lets through in a 10k tonight with Wil.

bit of suburbia then hit southern bold park to try mop up some squares. looking likely I didnt take us in far enough to get the western ones so might only pickup 2 instead of 5. guess we will be revisiting another day!

Good fun though. back out via gold course and claremont lake and home - just shy of 10km.

Right glute pulling from get go but otherwise felt pretty good.

Scuba Diving (Snake Reef - Mauritius ) 39:00 [3]

On the back of a shocking sleep and probably too congested went diving. Not the smartest move but it turned out to be a good dive. Very slow descent to make sure I was ok.

Whilst the reef was just lava rocks on a sand bed it was home to loads of stone and lion fish. Highlights include seeing peacock mantis shrimp, spotted moray, leaf fish, octopus

Average depth was above 22m but down to 25.5 30 mins max bottom time I think I slipped just into deco time but our ascent was slow so all good there.
