10 AM

Running warm up/down (Pymble Ladies College) 9:22 [2] 1.75 km (5:21 / km) +26m 4:59 / km
ahr:131 max:162 shoes: Altra The One 2.5

W/U
11 AM

Orienteering race (NSW Sprint Champs) 21:35 [5] **** 4.3 km (5:01 / km) +72m 4:38 / km
ahr:176 max:201 shoes: Altra The One 2.5

Glutes super tired from squash so had no expectations on running fast but wanted to make as few errors as possible...which i think i did well. Took a bit to get into the map but decent first half. Smashed it around the oval/crowd bits when i heard them say "1 sec behind leader" (or something like that). 201 max HR here too.

Was coming 2nd until 23 where i ran past it. Toby didn't catch up to me starting 2mins behind, 10 sec down on Alastair and ahead of Aidan so really happy with that. Regular sat o series has helped massively and easily got the leg speed to beat those guys just more specific practice needed. Probably my best sprint run to date. Really enjoyed it too!

Errors:
Ran an indirect route to 3 (5 sec)
Confused at 9 (15 sec)
Took a detour to 12 (20 sec)
Ran past 23 then down the stair and back up (30 sec)
Hesitated at 25 (10 sec)
Results
12 PM

Running warm up/down (Pymble to MQ) 50:56 [3] 7.68 km (6:38 / km) +210m 5:50 / km
ahr:148 max:171 shoes: Altra The One 2.5

Back to college via trails with Bart. Decided to ditch the long run idea as was pushing time, feeling dehydrated and wanted lunch before it closed. Legs also very heavy from squash. Downed 3 massive plates of pasta while dripping in sweat.

ahr:167 max:190 shoes: Altra The One 2.5

Fun course with some tricky sections. Went out of bounds running across the oval a few times. Oops. Ran decently well.

Errors:
Turned too early at 8 (15 sec)
Went a long way to 11 (45 sec)
Wrong staircase at 12 (30 sec)
Went to fence corner at 16then decided to not jump it (out of bounds) and ran around (30 sec)

ahr:112 max:175 shoes: Asics Gel Rocket (Squash No.2)

MQ Showdowns
Lost 3-2 15-13 in the 5th vs NA 320

1st game - moving the ball around ok. Just a few too many crosscourts.
2nd game - rallying well but down 11-14 got it back to 14-14 then both of us had game balls. Lots of hustling but clutched it 18-16
3rd game - lost concentration at the start with too many loose shots and ankle a bit sore 11-3
4th game - better squash and good rallies. Banged knee going for a dive at 10-8 but managed to squeeze it 15-13
5th game - lots of good squash. He twisted his ankle at 6-8 followed by injury time. Got it back to 10-8 then 13-13. Couldn't quite close it out. Happy either way, played good for no squash in a while.

Bouldering with Ben from college. Got asked if I wanted to move in to a place at Wollstonecraft next year which is very tempting. Good price, near trails and close to ClimbFit...
