Orienteering 55:00 [2] * 8.0 km (6:53 / km)

Course setting for the Westgarth street event on Thursday week. I dodged hailstorms, and managed to stay dry for most of the run.
I found a new way to capture control descriptions. I ran with my mobile phone, and took photos of each control site for later processing on my computer.

Running 1:00:00 [2] 12.0 km (5:00 / km)

2 laps of the tan in reverse at talking pace. Feeling quite good today.

Running 44:00 [3] 8.2 km (5:22 / km)

500m on 500m off along Yarra Boulevard, averaging between 1:40 and 1:50 for the ons. No sign of the soreness from yesterday.

Early morning run so that I can watch the cricket on the new LCD screen in the lunch room at work. I better hurry and watch before all of the Aussies get out. We are now 2/22!

Running 50:00 [2] 9.1 km (5:30 / km)

Easy morning run around the Yarra Bend golf course. I felt a bit of soreness in my upper left leg towards the end so I'll watch this carefully.

No rain yet this morning, but plenty of mizzle about. A bit more than mist, but not quite drizzle. The type of stuff that usually arrives for the Boxing Day test.

Running intervals 50:00 [4] 10.0 km (5:00 / km)

3 x 1500m intervals at the tan.
Happy to get through the session without any pain or soreness. However, I felt pretty slow running the intervals.
The extended layoff (injury/rest) has got to me, and I was a bit off the pace today. Each rep was about 5:10-5:15, and I struggled a bit at the end.
Still I have to start somewhere, and I can't improve if I don't put in the work.

On the warm down people kept giving me free stuff. First I got a free Powerade at the tan. Then I got a free waterbottle from Subway when I bought my roll.

Running 35:00 [2] 7.0 km (5:00 / km)

I had planned a longer run today, but I was quite sore in the abs and hip flexors, so I cut it short and took it easy.

The rest of the morning was spent playing cricket with Mason and Torren at Milo In2Cricket. Mason got a new cricket shirt and hat this year, but Torren was even more please as he inherited Mason's gear from last year and now has his own!
