Got a cold.

Saturday Feb 16 #

10 AM

Orienteering 55:43 [3] 9.51 km (5:51 / km) +160m 5:24 / km
ahr:149 max:161

Frustrating day. Woke up with a cold coming on although this didn't make any difference to the race. I actually felt really good after I'd warmed up. Really enjoyed the course and Jordan starting behind for the added pressure.
#1 50 secs lost. Dithered and came in from above after climbing too high.
#3 50 secs lost. Went straight to it. Didn't see it then ran to the fence corner and came back up to it.
#6 easily 7mins?? Huge cock up. Left the path way too early. Crossed fence and headed to 9.
#7 2 mins Misread the feature. Thought it was in the semi open so dropped down. I was originally metres from it.
#8 2mins followed wrong gulley.
#12 2mins gormless parallel error of sorts and ran down the obviously wrong peninsula.
14:40 mistakes. Jordan won by 3mins. ( He made some monster gaffs too and he wasn't trying half as hard as I was)
Generally some very silly errors when it seemed very simple. And bloody heck it was cold.

Eadie on a half day today. Was going to roller ski, but put off again.

Macs are rubbish for orienteering.....thats official. Cannot overlay route on map on Quick Route. Grrrrr.

Climbing 1:20:00 [3]

Climb 59 with the Bairns. Quite tired. Difference between 10a and b is substantial here.
Routes from the weekend finally figured out. (Thanks to Martin).
11 AM

Running 34:00 [3] 8.23 km (4:08 / km)
ahr:142 max:164

Treadmill. 8x2mins Threshold. Knee is problematic, but barely felt it doing this. Cracking day, but still enjoying the treadmill workouts for some mind numbing reason.

Bouldering 1:00:00 [3]

Momentum again. Knee is at it again. Saw a group of English climbers defy physics. Never seen some of the stuff they were pulling off.
