Running 53:00 [2]
ahr:148 shoes: Integrators

Warm up and down from race at Whitbarrow.

Orienteering race 54:04 [5] ***** 6.7 km (8:04 / km) +165m 7:11 / km
ahr:176 max:197 spiked:15/20c slept:12.0 shoes: Shiny silver integrators

WRE at Whitbarrow. Totally unimpressed with myself. Very busy map at 1:15,000 and instead of slowing down to simplify and plan, resulted to the old habit of just speeding up and hoping. Bad plan. Missed so many of the first few controls buy just drifting and hoping. Sped up by the end on the moor and planned much better from 7 onwards, but a real disappointment to myself as everything I've been practising was out the window. Lesson learnt though, so definitely worth it! Position was less bad than it could have been, but I am capable of a lot more. Poor effort.

Orienteering race 30:41 [5] ***** 4.0 km (7:40 / km)
ahr:187 max:197 spiked:15/16c rhr:43 slept:7.0 shoes: Integrators

Race at Stockbird head with good warm up and down either side, race time was 30.41 and I was the fastest out there. Flowed really well, planning ahead well and visualising nicely as well as ruynning aggresively. Ace.

Running 27:37 [2]

Warm up and down from Stockbird Head.

Easy run to work with a 3 minutes speed up in the middle. Carrying a ruck sac so not as fluid as I'd have liked, still really tired, but HR going down so another good rest tonight!

Wind ups to practice prep for week before competition. Actually felt sodding awful after squatting 40kg yesterday, evening tight and stiff. Did three sets of 600, 400, 200 with 40 secs rest between and 2 mins between sets. Had to take an extended interval in third set as stomach was being a nightmare. Times were: 2.02, 1.19, 0.35, 2.01, 1.19, 0.39, 2.06 (stomach bleurgh, 1.37 rest), 1.18, 0.33.20 mins warm down and really good stretch afterwards at Gav's, did all the physio stretches plus whole body really well and now feel tons better!

Back Squat 3x10 40kg (halfway to that picture of Heather!)
OH BB Split Push Press 3x6 each leg 17.5kg
