Sunday Jan 28 #

Running 1:20:00 [3] 13.5 km (5:56 / km)

Wanted to get out of town so took the bus to the 'Rat Saturday arvo.

Sunday morning long run around Creswick from St Georges Lake. Dave and I dragged each other round 80 mins. Wasn't toooo hot out early, but our brilliant idea of combining the run with a post-run swim proved excellent.

Felt ok at times and a bit slow at times. Little bit slower than the last few weeks but not fussed as it was hot and had a few hills.

Strava record (ok, so 1/3) for a segment called 'halfass' :)

Saturday Jan 27 #

Riding 59:27 [3] 22.26 km (2:40 / km)

Morning roll. Apparently my 70 min ride doesn't take 70 mins (time from Strava today, whereas usually I just guess from my watch and subtract a bit for traffic lights). Have to ride further next time.

Friday Jan 26 #

Core strength/stretching 10:00 [3]

Did nothing all day so thought I should do some 10pm core. Turned into 11pm core when I stopped halfway through to book flights/enter for Tassie.

Thursday Jan 25 #

Running 35:16 [3] 5.7 km (6:11 / km)

Kathmandu training (again with coach Lucy).

Second hills session for the week felt surprisingly better than the first. Good little loop below the teardrop with downhill (which I tried to go hard on - improving downhill confidence and speed being one of my 2018 goals), flattish and then uphill efforts.

Nice evening for it! Also met Alice McNamara, stair climbing queen, who gave me a tip off of an accessible building in the city.

Wednesday Jan 24 #


Still open to theme suggestions, but this one from last year's Eurovision wrote itself...

Running on Air (Nathan Trent, Austria)

Orienteering 33:00 [3] 6.0 km (5:30 / km)

Carlton Gardens Sprint o training.

Sufficiently close to work :) Was making some big navigation errors (route choice around out of bounds, crossing roundabout and going up completely the wrong street, heading to controls out of order) which was a bit silly.

Wasn't running super fast but didn't feel too bad.

Tuesday Jan 23 #


It's about time to start promotion of Melbourne Sprint Weekend 2018. Any suggestions for theme? Otherwise it might be Eurovision again...

Running 12:30 [3] 2.0 km (6:15 / km)

Warm up

Running 20:30 [3] 3.5 km (5:51 / km)

Hill intervals behind the lake. 8 total, 4 each way behind the naked man.

Legs had no zip in them and struggled to get them up the hills.

Right knee a little twingy at times, and left shin was a bit sore at the start.

Running 13:00 [3] 2.1 km (6:11 / km)

Warm down
