Orienteering 54:55 [4] *****
ahr:162 max:181 spiked:18/22c slept:8.0 shoes: Shiny silver integrators

Mark's re-planned course at Allt Cailleach. 12 minutes or so warm up then 43 mins or so of intense control picking. Really good fun, legs totally done by the end, the last couple of hills were a real test!

Recovery 27:31 [2]
ahr:148 max:171 shoes: Shiny silver integrators

Nice warm down run with Mark and Doug while waiting for Ross to return with the mini bus and all our kit! Feeling much better for it at the end, nice stretch too.

Orienteering 1:06:11 [4] ***** 7.6 km (8:43 / km)
ahr:178 max:187 spiked:14/18c slept:8.0 shoes: Shiny silver integrators

Boys course training at Balnagowan. Legs tired but still running strongly, had a good head to head with Alex and Kyle at the end just as I was starting to lose motivation. Really good fun. Misjudged a couple of the slope legs slightly.

Orienteering 32:30 [5] ***** 4.1 km (7:56 / km)
ahr:179 max:191 spiked:10/16c shoes: Shiny silver integrators

Relay course at Crathes. Really let the pressure of having Mark and Doug chase get to me, and was orienteering like a total muppet in some places, not planning ahead enough and drifting in the direction of Ross ahead (bad idea). Running really well and hard, totally knackered by the end. Orienteering like an idiot though!

Cycling 15:21 [2]

Speed cycle into work! Feeling a bit more energetic today.

Cycling 22:00 [2]

Cycle home, a bit slow, quads hurting!

Intervals 1:03:34 [4]
ahr:163 max:187 slept:8.0 shoes: Saucony Cohesion

Was feeling a lack of motivation for training after a long day at the lab, so needed a it of a different session to persuade me to go out of the door. So did 50 minutes of those crazy 15 x 15 Foxdals and really enjoyed them. Went on paths, up hills, through thick grass, etc etc, and the really short interval really helps you focus on good running style in all directions, and was tougher aerobically than I was expecting. Powered up Craiglockhart to end the session, then jogged back down home. Really enjoyed it, good way to get myself out after feeling totally whacked and demotivated.

Cycling 1:11:55 [2]

Cycling to Leith PS, to work, then back home. Really busy day and totally knackered so no circuits, just a restful evening of first year report writing!

Orienteering 50:13 [3] ***** 2.5 km (20:05 / km)
ahr:139 max:164 shoes: Saucony Cohesion

Possibly one of the hardest things I have ever done! Line course in the intricate part at Lossie, time includes run out and back. Really really tough, had to go out a couple of times and come back in to refocus. Reading the lines much better by the end, but took some really powerful concentration. Fantastic day's training.
