Recovery run today.

The first day back at school, ugh. Why is school such a hassle?

I've noticed that either in my Achilles or ankle I keep on hearing a click when I run on it and it's driving me insane! It doesn't hurt at all, just a nuisance really.

Recovery Run 21:25 [3] 4.05 km (5:17 / km)
rhr:7 weight:45.6kg shoes: INOV8 Road Talon 240 C

Basic recovery run, I'm getting over my cold rn.
8 AM

Gym 1:10:41 [5]

Abs - 10 min 56b sec, legs - 31 min 33 sec, shoulders 28 min 12 sec.

It felt so much harder than usual to do this workout, it was dreadfully hard, but it did reactivate my hard working ability since I did push myself to the limits.

Still annoyed at my inconsistency tbh, maybe I should try meditation before orienteering and psyching myself up before a track race, due to specific amounts of arousal (ha ha ha funny 12-year-old humor) affecting your performance depending on how complex or simple a task is. At last year's camp, probably myself, Liam Dufty and Eckart would have been the only ones finding it useful due to us having similar personalities and aspirations.

Probably use this for next training since I have everything down pat after I get this I'm going to try and put 5kg of muscle on in 9 weeks. My 20% mesomorph from puberty should hopefully kick in some more if I do some more heavy lifts with the correct form and athletic/corrective exercises I should be extremely strong for nationals.

But navigational consistency will still be the priority after all I have learned how course setters set sprints, middle distance and long distance which should drastically help my confidence.
5 PM

Cross Country 30 [3] 6.0 km (5 / km)
slept:8.5 weight:46.4kg shoes: Nike Zoom Fly FN

John made some bloody hard interval/sprints today. Firstly starting off with conework, then progressing to sprints around half a soccer pitch and then finishing off with a full lap of the soccer pitch.

Then the little kids wanted to play a mix of footy/hockey, aka you can kick and handball like footy but had hockey like goals. Pretty much constant sprinting which is guttering due to my competitive drive not wanting to lose to the girls 5-1 again XD

Oh, and I also had an hour and a half nap.
