10 AM

Orienteering 12:15 [4] 3.1 km (3:57 / km) +10m 3:53 / km
shoes: Waverider TT

Glasgow Parks Race 1 - Glasgow Green

Pretty easy burn-up round the park, should have done a bit more jogging to warm up tbh.
Missing the top gear, and the orienteering brain also - started heading to 11 before 10, oops. Not too much time lost on the course, but could definitely do with an SI-Air, no real excuse for lacking one at this point
12 PM

Run 10:31 [3] 2.41 km (4:22 / km) +25m 4:09 / km
shoes: Waverider TT

Glasgow Parks Race 2 - Alexandra Park

Another burn-up, but legs were surprisingly ruined after this morning, yikes. No dramas, but a bit behind the speedy boys once again
2 PM

Run 27:34 [4] 5.17 km (5:20 / km) +40m 5:08 / km
shoes: X-Talon 230

Had a certain Nolan starting a few minutes before me, so went off mega hard at the start to try to catch up, and managed by 3, also having nearly caught my 2 minute man.
Was a bit goosed though and errors started to creep in - wobbles on 4 and 5, before a big disaster at 9 ruined my chances of a good run. Probably ought to have had a plan, and maybe even looked at the compass too - always a good idea.

Number 1 had the wrong number, and number 2 was in the wrong place and unfortunately for Matt he assumed the legs would be voided so he faffed around a bit too much.
Claimed the 3rd spoton the podium by a scant 3 seconds, an incredible result for a day of some shocking o by me

9 AM

Run 18:40 [3] 4.96 km (3:46 / km) +5m 3:45 / km
shoes: Waverider 25

Perth Parkrun

As always, not much time for a warm-up - an hour's commute to get there usually means a choice between a poop or a jog.

Fairly miserable weather on the drive up, so the course was quite soggy - a few big ankle deep puddles to wade through, and the grassy section was very sloppy.
Somehow found myself at the front after 500m, and it remained that way till the finish - another Parkrun win, baffling!

Run 56:28 [2] 10.05 km (5:37 / km) +200m 5:07 / km
shoes: Waverider TT

Cycled over the the house to get the car, and decided while I was out there that I may as well do a run round Corstorphine Hill.
The old classic loop I used to do often, anti-clockwise loop round the hill. Either the hills have gotten smaller or I've gotten fitter because it didn't feel quite as hard as it used to.

Run 1:04:53 [2] 10.47 km (6:12 / km) +150m 5:47 / km
shoes: Waverider TT

Mortonhall with Emily, very dark one.

A few fallen trees to manoeuvre, otherwise the standard enjoyable loop

6 PM

Run 29:14 [2] 5.01 km (5:50 / km) +60m 5:30 / km
shoes: Waverider TT

Hermitage loop, got quite damp

Tweaked my ankle on an unexpected root at one stage, but was all good after a minute so no dramas

5 PM

Swimming 23:36 [1] 1.0 km (23:36 / km)

Quite a busy one.
Felt pretty tough, but will try to get back into some more swimming.

Somehow need to weave in S&C as well, but don't really have time in the afternoon, and I have very little interest in getting up early!
