Orienteering race (ECU Navdash) 15:57 [3] 2.28 km (7:00 / km) +27m 6:36 / km
ahr:164 max:177 shoes: ASICS GEL - Nimbus 17

EOD course - wasnt the longest which I discovered at the end - a little bit disappointed in that but I guess thats EOD.

I was 50/50 as to come out today or not and that alone would have tipped it over the line - wish I had listened to myself and not come though as course was short straight line and reasonably boring and in my want to go fast pinged my left calf again lower than the last time more mid to lower calf - but really meant i hobble over half the course which wasnt enjoyable - shouldve just rested.

the 1hr of driving wasnt worth the 2km shuffle.

Back to icing and compressing and recovering this stupid left leg that seems to be forever falling apart.

oh and gps went to sleep as I started so dont know how accurate it is.

Running (Long Night Run) 1:46:58 [3] 12.68 km (8:26 / km) +181m 7:52 / km
ahr:153 max:179 shoes: ASICS GEL - Nimbus 17

Knee was feeling loads better even though lots of bruising - most/all loading pains is gone and inner thigh back to normal. outside calf/shin still not right but meh started easy to see how it felt and it was ok.

Met Will near perry lakes and headed down towards bold park - quick nip in to grab some squares and then back to road and around to southern bold park where we had attempt #2 at clearing it. Started to rain on this section but once we hit the bush didnt notice it/it stopped.

In at an angle and then due south... only due south when I am navigating without a compass in cloud cover with no visual reference was south east. I think we will end up with 1 of the 3 we wanted but the 2 we missed whilst be elusive little buggers should be easy enough to hit from another angle.

Out via the gold course where Will collected the largest spider I have seen in a while and freaked out (rightly so) as it climbed within an inch of his face hanging off his glasses.Got that sorted out and continued on our way. Was going to run south with Will be decided to take us to train line and split east of swanbourne so we both had quick legs home.

Felt good until about 1km to go when I started to feel some soreness. Knee held up well but left calf ever since the tear has been giving me some grief. just feels tight and sore - often. Stretched and compressed when i got home but still a tad sore today.

Shins feeling good and generally feeling alright after the long session.
