Orienteering 48:43 [5] ***** 5.0 km (9:45 / km)
ahr:181 max:184 spiked:15/18c slept:12.0 shoes: Integrators

Made up for the sleep and was looking forward to a good day today. Unfortunately the high spike rate doesn't reflect the total brain blow up in the middle! Convinced myself I was right and then mistook the control I was looking for the the next one - cue lots of confused wandering about! finally relocated on big track and did the rest spot one, really well. Must have lost a good 5 or 6 mins with absolutely no idea what was happening though. Grrr. No sign of yesterday's sore throat though which is good.

Orienteering 18:42 [5] ***** 2.8 km (6:41 / km)
ahr:185 max:200 spiked:6/11c slept:12.0 shoes: Integrators

What a pile of shite. Ran badly, didn't even see most of the best route choices till the end, and fuddled the ones I did make well. Wasn't smooth, was definitely not in control. Really disappointing. Still enjoyed it though, cool place for a sprint.

Orienteering 1:34:21 [4] *** 7.2 km (13:06 / km)
ahr:148 max:191 spiked:14/16c slept:4.0 shoes: Integrators

Trains exercise with the girls on Great Green Hows. 1.2km or so run in, 1km run out, 5km trains. Talk O'ed and jogged the open controls at the start and end then did three sets of trains in the green stuff! Was pleasantly surprised, coped well under pressure, planned routes well, visualising well and most importantly fighting hard through the dark green, which really needed the fight in places! Chest felt a little tight, probably just due to small amount of sleep and first hard run in a couple of weeks. Good fun and a gorgeous early evening.

Orienteering 1:01:32 [2] ****
ahr:153 max:178 shoes: Integrators

Jogged round another old KM sprint course with a bit of a big hill in the middle then did an extended run back to Anders's place. Bit hungover but still feeling strong in the legs and wanting to go up a gear - can't wait for Saturday! Integratoes have just about died unfortunately.

Orienteering 26:34 [4] ***
shoes: Integrators

Short sprint on one of Anders's local maps. 15.47 for 2.7km, only a few seconds behind Anders's time a couple of years back but with the advantage of no vegetation as there would have been in summer. Good to stretch out the legs a little.

Running 30:06 [2]
ahr:155 max:179 shoes: Off Road Sauconys

Nice easy morning jog as the sun came up around Hässelby. Just hit the big forest as it was time to come back - shame! Will maybe go for a bit longer tomorrow.
