Orienteering race 1:18:53 [5] ***** 8.2 km (9:37 / km) +350m 7:56 / km
ahr:178 max:189 spiked:19/24c slept:10.0 shoes: Integrators

Much better day today, ran the M21L at Cambus O May. Was technically pretty good aside from a minor crisis when I realised we had virtually the same control as the one I wasted 26 minutes on last time. Was really hesistant to that one but did gostraight there this time, I hate the map around there! I still can't make it fit! Course was long and physically tough but so glad I did it - much better than 5.6km. Really well planned course with some mighty tricky slope legs - really good day.

Orienteering 37:47 [3] *** 4.2 km (9:00 / km)
ahr:172 max:187 spiked:8/11c slept:5.5 shoes: Integrators

Easy training session at the afternoon in Scolty. Flowed quite nicely round the course, not too speedy. Navigation wasn't perfect, too easy to drift in the general direction as forest was very open. Nice afternoon though.

Orienteering race 1:03:40 [4] *** 4.7 km (13:33 / km) +105m 12:11 / km
spiked:8/14c shoes: Integrators

Really frustrating night race at Potarch (Ballogie). First 7 controls great, lovely forest, orienteering well, simplifying with good attack points and good route choices, not very fast but fine. Then it went into a shitty rough brashing bit, I stopped enjoying, no technique I used seemed to work and I had multiple moments of having no idea where I was. No idea why they had to go into that bit - ruined a potentially fantastic race. Not happy!

Cycling 45:00 [2]

Veeery slow cycling to work and back today to avoid getting more soggy than I already was. Not that it worked.

General aerobic 36:41 [4]
ahr:137 max:169

Went to the gym to do some machine aerobiccy stuff cuz of the crap weather but within 35 mins was bored stiff and left. And came out to brilliant sunshine - could have blasted out to the pentlands after all!

Cycling 49:00 [4]

Huge winds today meant the normal cycling was a real struggle - barely moving and virtually impossible to get round corners in some places! Phew.

Orienteering 1:34:47 [4] ***
ahr:161 max:188 spiked:11/17c

Run to the Seat for Peter G's night course. A pretty tough 5km course in gale force winds, running virtually impossible even along the road in places! Forgot to time myself then ran to Tescos after too. Felt good, breathing fine and no throaty issues.

Cycling 38:00 [2]

Just to work and back.

slept:4.5 (rest day)

For some reason barely slept last night - couldn't get this CSS song out of my head and it was just going round and round and really irritating, felt rubbish all day and nose running quite a bit. Still no sore throat or headache but thought I should rest. Will have a ong relaxing bath and a read in bed and hopefully feel better tomorrow.

Cycling 47:00 [3]

Just the usual - work, gym- home

Circuits 23:46 [3]
ahr:102 max:127

Just a small strength session today as it's an easy week - warm up plyometrics and lunges, 3 sets of olympic lifts and a few sit ups and abs bits.

Recovery 26:07 [1]
ahr:138 max:150 slept:8.0 shoes: Off Road Sauconys

Very short recovery run - nothing to recover from really but keeping in with the weekly pattern! Managing to move a bit more quickly up the hills at 144 than I was a few weeks ago.
