Warm up & strides 6:12 [3]
ahr:152 max:164 shoes: Saucony Cohesion

Short jog to the gym. I think my HR is a little high still.

Strength 33:22 [3]
ahr:138 max:173 shoes: Saucony Cohesion

Tried to do a full strength session but the gym was packed with uber tight t shirted gelled to the max pretty boys making huge gurning sounds, so I bashed out most of a quick programme far too quickly and legged it. I have turned into such a weakling, it's not funny!

Back squats 40kg 4 x 8
Lunges 25kg 4 x 8
OH Press 15kg 4 x 8
Push press 20kg 2 x 8

Then I really had to leave before I damaged someone.

Recovery 5:36 [3]
ahr:167 max:178 shoes: Saucony Cohesion

Jog back to the evening of deep cleaning! I think it was partly the dust in my room making me feel bunged up and shit, so Rob helped me give it a huge once over and now it smells of polish and is beautifully clean and tidy. Mmmm...

Orienteering race 38:32 [5] **** 5.4 km (7:08 / km)
ahr:196 max:200 spiked:12/13c shoes: Integrators

So I got dragged into the SHI relay by a desperate John Rye, and ended up on second leg on an uber grotty day. Set off just behind Jen Thornton and two Irish girls, and caught them by number one. Then had a much higher gaffle at number 3 and had to catch them again! Felt like I was running hard but not progressing as fast as I should have been! Managed to catch Holly just after the spectator switch and brought us back in 3rd to give Helen a fighting chance. Navigated really well on some tricky slope controls but running was a lot harder than it should have bee - not used to this short tough stuff anymore! But still, 4 mins down on Mhairi and Helen who were together for half the course, so that's a good place to start the winter! HRM took a while to settle so not convinced the average is correct, so am not too worried. Did hit 200 on the spectator bit though, was really going to chase Hollie!

rhr:51 (sick) (rest day)

Today I finally managed to get up before 10am! First time in 5 days. Impressive stuff. My headache is finally receeding and my pulse is starting to go back to normal. Good.
