Orienteering race (Lovers Ridge) 1:27:51 [5] 7.83 km (11:13 / km) +352m 9:10 / km
ahr:160 max:176 shoes: Salomon XA Pro 3d

Had a really good run.

#1 was a control on my rogaine
#2 flush
#3 - damn it too short and dicked around there for a while, saw ricky fly through before realising I was short.
#4 flush
#5 short again... silly.
#6 good
- by now my left shin was really hurting and some of the field running was causing right ankle rolls badly :)
#7 and #8 flush
#9 I swear it was mis placed, lost a little time hunting.
#10 right on top of it
#11 did go short like earlier and was clean
#12 perfect
#13 perfect
#14, strayed a bit to the right a few times but constantly correcting - hit it reasonably cleanly.
#15 dog of a leg but clean
#16 fine once I crossed the river out of 15.
#17 perfect
#18 perfect
#19 along main river then up the spur before the watercourse with the control on it
#20 around the top of the watercourses and then down to the point. almost stacked it getting down to it.
#21 started heading for finish! idiot corrected just before start - thankfully not much of a difference - clean

Was a good run very clean - shins very sore, ankle too. Saw ricky at the finish while waiting to punch thought by some fluke I had over taken him - he informed me he had done h4 as well :(

(rest day)

Enforcing a rest day because not feeling 100% rather head it off early - so dropping a MTB and swim - but not going away for weekend as was once planned so picking up the two footo sessions :)

Running (4km Loop) 23:15 [4] 4.04 km (5:45 / km) +77m 5:15 / km
ahr:155 max:172 shoes: Salomon XA Pro 3d

Skins where sore before I started particularly the left - so i decided to take it easier.

I felt like I was just plodding along wasn't concentrating on much just thinking about work etc. when I did think about my running I could tell me legs where composed and just general sloppiness.

Fire alarm at greylands made me think, bit late for a fire drill... the fire engine that whooshed along shortly after that thought confirmed that... but I saw no flames nor any smoke... I sense the criminally insane attempting a 'flee in the confusion and chaos of a fire alarm' old trick...

Anyway it wasnt until I was nearly home when I glanced at my watch and saw dear god I am almost on my last best pace. I increase my effort for the last maybe 400m?! to see if I could meet or beat it - but the kick was a bit late and not commited enough and slide in 10s short. However I see that as a possitive as I felt I was having a chilled easy run up until that point so confident I can go faster in a few weeks once I get my shins back to a nice place.

Road Bike (Kings Park Loops) 1:13:09 [3] 25.22 km (20.7 kph) +278m
ahr:138 max:163 shoes: Giro Privateer

Ave Cadence - 63

bit nippy out there today - quite a few people out in the park cars and bikes.

4 ricky encounters - 0 acknowledgments, will forgive the 1st time as he was recounting his run around the lake last night and the 4th one as they where well infront of me... but geez rude the other two times!

Garmin continues to improve its accuracy but still well wrong.

Feeling reasonable post ride.

Running (4km Loop) 23:04 [4] 4.01 km (5:45 / km) +66m 5:19 / km
ahr:158 max:169 shoes: Salomon XA Pro 3d

Felt strong, composed, powerful and focused.

Felt light to start but clunky for last few km.

But felt quicker and was by 16s / km felt like I had another 5-10s/km in me and didnt put a kick on because I had been cruising nicely.

Garmin clearly playing funny buggers.

Road Bike (Kings Park Loops) 1:13:45 [3] 25.11 km (20.4 kph) +314m
ahr:137 max:158 shoes: Giro Privateer

Average cadence up to 61.

felt like I worked a bit harder today - rewarded by trimming a few mins off.

Garmin consistently inconsistent but moving in the right direction still.

was a nice session though - not many people in the park and could feel the last of the dustiness being combated by the fresh cool kings park air :P
