Down to UWA and out to the river with Rachel then she wanted some hills and I wanted flat so we went opposite directions. I ran out to the end of the path below sunset hospital and back. I planned to just try to get rolling at the fastest pace that didn't feel as though I was forcing it. Stated out quite comfortable but I think I picked it up a bit when Nic Earner came past towards the end of his tempo run and then I just pushed it a little harder than I had wanted to the rest of the way. Legs started to feel quite tired approaching Pelican point on the way back and it was really starting to feel like a tempo effort by the end. Tried to extend the jog home a bit to push it out towards 90 min, hoping a bit of slow jogging would help my legs feel better, but they were just getting more sore and tired so I wished I had just headed straight back. Set out before breakfast but after 9:30am and weighed myself after finishing so I don't expect to be this light again any time soon.

Looking for Amy and then helping her through a few controls. She was not in a very determined mood.

Map memory star relay with Eckart. Didn't start watch on first control so you can't see the big mistake I made. I did know what I had done pretty early and managed to find it, more from memory of going there with Amy than memory of the map though. Eckart had trouble in the same area on the final control to drop us from first to last.

Around Reabold while Liam had a hit with Scotty. This reminded me a bit of the way I trained after a disappointing race at Bridges when I developed my most recent Achilles injury. The plan was an easy 90 minutes but I was a bit pushed for time, my legs felt a bit heavy running across the grass and my Achilles was a bit sore starting up the hills so I did the obvious thing and gradually increased the pace while adding in extra hills whenever I could. Achilles getting a bit more sore towards the end so I had to increase the pace a bit more to match.
