ACT Long Champs at Glendale Crossing. With the achilles recovering quite well, I thought I'd come out, warm-up, and see how it went, thinking that getting around half-way would be an achievement. As it turned out, the achilles felt okay for a long time, only starting to get sore late in the race where there was little alternative but to finish. As runs go it was a bit mixed. I lost a couple of minutes at #2 with the invisible track, then had a reasonable series until the first green control which I mucked up in the circle for another 2 minutes. Had another good series of controls through till #18 then I just got a bit shabby, no big individual mistakes but lost a few minutes over about 6 controls. Then when we got out into the open again, I wasn't pushing like it was a race.

I enjoyed the green stuff for a while but eventually got sick of being scratched up and running into things. Got a stick in my eye and despite washing it out had a ~7mm length of stick pop out from under my eyelid on Monday morning!

Running 23:00 [1] 2.9 km (7:56 / km)
(injured) shoes: Asics DS Trainer 19

Spent the week doing all the right things with my achilles: static calf work, working all the tight bits out of my calf, ankle mobility work, even green tea! It was settling down pretty well so decided to test the waters with some 1min alternating walk-jog. Mild but increasing soreness as time went on but the good bit was it didn't get really sore afterwards. Gives some hope for running at Aus champs.

(injured) shoes: Asics DynaFlyte

Following on from the successful plod yesterday, I thought another plod would be good. Started okay but soon was feeling some soreness in the achilles. Didn't get any worse but after an hour of sitting at my desk was getting some full on pain in the achilles. Wasn't expecting any issues, achilles has been doing fine. It's probably scuttled running at the Aus champs :(
