Climbing 2:00:00 [3]

Missed SLR to tiredness/horrendous weather so went climbing instead. Good warm, dry, wholesome fun.

Just about got it done before midnight

1 PM

Running 38:28 [5] 9.9 km (3:53 / km)
shoes: VJ Bold 8

Coldham's Common College League Race

Quite late, meaning everyone was lined up to start while I was still warming up. Oops. Sprinted across the field to make the start, and had about a second to catch my breath before the gun. Started unsurprisingly poorly, then worked my way up before making a nav error on the last lap. Shout of "classic orienteer" from behind got me going again and managed to hold onto my pre-mistake position, due more to contempt than any real athleticism.

Absolutely horrendous weather, so just cycled straight home to the painful shower, avoiding the loss of fingers but not the loss of dignity courtesy of a muddy, painful, dobb-spiked sprint through halls.

Generally though, felt grim, didn't have enough grip but that's a poor excuse to run as slowly as I did. Wasn't sure how much speed I'd lose through those weeks of injury but its being harshly demonstrated now.

Tuesday Jan 16 #

2 PM

Running 32:08 [3] 6.9 km (4:39 / km) +10m 4:37 / km
shoes: Asics GT-1000 5

Down to Coton for hill reps, further than anticipated

Running hills 1:00:14 [3] 12.6 km (4:47 / km) +130m 4:33 / km
shoes: Asics GT-1000 5

Hill reps at Coton 2 x (hill lap ~10mins, 2 x hill rep) and the loongg road home
Was meant to be an 8 minute tempo and three sets, but feeling very tired, conscious of length of run home, and small niggle in left leg persisting. Also wore totally the wrong shoes, absolutely no grip on the mud and churned field edges.

Poor session, a couple of non-fitness related excuses, but the last few weeks haven't been good and that was put on show.
5 PM

Squash 50:00 [3]
shoes: Asics Gel-DS 22

Squash with Calum. Beaten 3-1 but then again I basically couldn't run to the ball. His win streak continues :(

Monday Jan 15 #

4 PM

Running 56:13 [3] 12.6 km (4:28 / km) +20m 4:26 / km
shoes: Asics GT-1000 5

Rainy, then wet Baitsbite with Peter and Eliot.

Woeful turnout, but it was pretty horrible so I guess that's why. Could've worn dobs it was so muddy. Knee fine while running, but had a weird muscle pull down outside upper left leg. Didn't slow me down and feels like it will be stretched/rolled out fairly easily.
