Sunday Feb 24 #


Another day of no activity. Quite a tough pill to swallow, working really hard for 6 weeks cross training to maintain a good level of fitness, just to have that crippled by a stupid illness.

Saturday Feb 23 #


Better this morning, but still a bad throat and chest. No nationals today which is sad and no orienteering tomorrow either. Hit the reset next week. This 4 day rest may be what my shin needs.

Friday Feb 22 #


Still absolutely dead.

Thursday Feb 21 #


Just woken up. Didn’t sleep that well got a very sharp headache, sore throat and a temperature. Don’t think I’ll be doing much today :(

Nice loop out to Kinloch and then back round to Pitlochry. Had quite a bad headache all the way round and also quite a sharp pain in my throat (Think I might be ill). Hills first half but then a nice gradual downhill second half. Enjoyable but headache now really bad.

North Muirton Sprint Training
Most people taking it at race pace, so I did aswell. Was a big shock to the legs and probably not good for the shin. Was actually shifting at a decent pace. Nav was a bit scrappy with some poor micro route choices. Came away with the victory so I’m happy ;)

Running 7:07 [2] 1.32 km (5:23 / km)
shoes: Hoka One One Speedgoat 2

WD could feel shin so taking this afternoon and tomorrow off. Not going to take any more risks.

Afternoon Ride

25.1km / 26.4kph

Legs a bit dead from the sprint. Nice route along the lanes with one massive climb on the way back. Good little adventure.

Ride out to O Training

29.0km / 25.1kph

Very undulating route but good fun. Had to ditch laura because was getting very cold.
1 PM

Running 10:36 [2] 2.01 km (5:16 / km) +41m 4:47 / km


Orienteering 42:00 [2] 5.45 km (7:42 / km) +95m 7:05 / km

Middle training round Dunalistair. Shocked on the WU because could hardly feel my shin. Took it chill off the start and actually naved ok for the first 9 controls. Got young Stanley Heap in my sights on the way to 10 but unfortunately he led me into a 1-2min mistake. I stopped my watch and waited for pesky stan to clear off. Was fairly good again, but then made a stupid parallel near the end. Ah well just happy to be able to run relatively pain free. Still going to stick to my original plan this week, don't want to mess this up.

Running 5:58 [2] 0.92 km (6:29 / km) +39m 5:21 / km
