Orienteering 57:57 [4] *** 6.5 mi (8:55 / mi)
ahr:180 max:190 26c shoes: 09 Saucony Grid

Edinburgh City Race. Some devilish route choice, and I'm pretty sure I lost time on number 4 and number 15. Most were saying round to number 15 but I think I should have gone straight. Was totally knackered by the end, but good fun as always.


Yup, looking at the splits I was definitely definitely wrong on number 4 and 9! Almost a minute out of me on both - rubbish! At least I must have been running okay.

Running 40:00 [2] 4.1 mi (9:45 / mi)
ahr:159 max:171 shoes: 09 Saucony Grid

Run down to Bingley through Cottingley Woods. Forgot how gorgeous they are, it's such a shame the stupid Tory Councillor woman who owns them won't let us orienteer there.

Strength 32:53 [1]
ahr:123 max:158

Quick zip round the machines at the Pool.

Cycling 1:07:00 [2]
ahr:140 max:181

Cycling to Mum's school and back to teach a "revision" lesson on the central nervous system. It was really windy and you have to go pretty high - it was a lot tougher than I had anticipated! It's ages since I was on a bike, and Dad's is weird, never seemed to find the right gear.

Running 33:00 3.7 mi (8:55 / mi)
ahr:167 max:187 shoes: 09 Saucony Grid

7 minutes aerobic, 3 x 3.40 (1), 12 minutes aerobic. First rep felt pretty rubbish but the second two were good.

Strength 50:00 [1]
ahr:115 max:156

Intro to the gym at Bingley - it's all machine, no free weights, but I reckon I can string something worthwhile together there. My hip adductors are very, very tight and weak. Maybe this is where my hamstring issues are coming from - inflexible pelvis/hips. I made friends with an old polish body builder who thought the mud on my leg was a tattoo and started to have a go at me.

Running 33:00 3.2 mi (10:19 / mi)
ahr:167 max:181 shoes: 09 Saucony Grid

12 mins aerobic, 6 mins of drills, 15 minutes sub threshold. Aerobic was slow (but all uphill) - lower legs both very stiff this morning but eased up with time. Was running smoothly by the end of the drills. More snow flakes in the air!

Stretching 12:00 [0]
ahr:88 max:104

Perfect ten. Stopped in at Bingley Pool on the way home and you can join the gym there for £22 a month. I think it's just machines, no free weights, but better than nothing. There's probably some dumbbells at least. I'll find out tomorrow.
