Run long 5:08:27 [3] 33.1 km (9:19 / km) +1300m 7:47 / km
shoes: Inov8 Rocklite 280 (yellow v3)

Absolutely awesome adventure with like the biggest crew ever (Andy, Brooner, Bart, Dave, Mounty, Keelan, myself). Started at Mountain Lagoon, some firetrail, then scrambly run down to Colo river – fun but I was very careful with Tarawera not far away. Then swimrunning for about 9k – this was so good and pretty tough, wet shoes full of sand, running on soft sand banks, scrambling over rocks, running in water, actual swimming... I was dragging the chain in this section a bit with pretty tired legs and also because I forgot my running vest and Mounty borrowed me his 30l pack (that absolutely saved me, thanks mate!) which always got full of water haha.

Then steep scramble back up from the valley and onto a great technical overgrown ridge trail where we kinda lost Keelan and Brooner. After some waiting, me and Mounty had to backtrack to see if they are ok. Turned out they just took a wrong turn and ran slightly different route so all good. It has however caused a lot of waiting and walking around and also split the group into three which sucked. Everyone was out of water by then (we expected it to be a 4hrs run max) and 35+ heat really started to bite. I was quite ok though and despite BIG week finished relatively strong. Quick stop at Bilpin cidery was THE BEST.

Thanks guys, really enjoyed this one!

Nutrition: 2l water, 0.7l Tailwind (had some more but gave it Mounty at the end), 1 muesli bar, half pack of jelly snakes

Run long 2:22:35 [3] 30.44 km (4:41 / km) +197m 4:32 / km
shoes: Asics GT-2000 4

Went to Cross yesterday after a long time so wasn't particularly fresh in the morning... Dragged myself out to CP dirt track though and gradually got from "why the fuck am I doing this" to "I actually like it" - confirmed by progressive splits. The presence of hundreds of other runners, walkers and some big guns from the run crew as well as some running podcasts were quite motivating.

No brekkie, one gel, 0.5l of Tailwind, approx 0.5l of water, lots of bacon and eggs afterwards.

Run 33:26 [2] 6.78 km (4:56 / km) +20m 4:52 / km
shoes: NB Vazee Pace Elite

Easy morning on grass. Originally though I'd do Mona's but couldn't really be bothered. I should rest before a big weekend anyway. The plan is faster 30k on CP dirt track on Saturday and Sunday Colo river fun run with the boys , which should be also around 30k, but pretty slow.

Run 1:26:00 [3] 16.6 km (5:11 / km) +220m 4:52 / km
shoes: Asics GT-2000 4

With Andy from the CBD to the SSS and then from the SSS back home. Felt trashed after the SSS but was actually feeling good towards the end again. But straight after getting home, my bowles exploded...
6 PM

Orienteering race 48:15 [4] 11.7 km (4:07 / km) +135m 3:54 / km
shoes: Asics GT-2000 4

SSS Drummoyne

Not overly keen on this one (dull area) but packaged it up into a long run. Very soon realised that my legs are too tired to push it in the fast area so after around 5k stopped trying. Did a 30 sec mistake around the same time and had a suboptimal route choice around start/finish area. 90sec slower than Glenn and 45'' behind Keelan, just ahead of Andy.
