3 PM

Running 34:59 [3] 7.09 km (4:56 / km) +56m 4:45 / km
ahr:158 max:174

Poor time management all weekend resulted in me missing the fell race I was hoping to do, then missing the chance to drive out to Otley or Ilkley for a a run, then missing out on doing an 11km run as I didn't want to be late for Church. As it transpired I was late to church anyway. Really need to get better at this.

It was a nice run out from Alwoodley to Eccup reservoir and through the northern bit of Adel wood. Really cool crags and cuboidal boulders randomly strewn across, looking forward to getting out on long runs in the daylight after work here in a couple of months.
7 PM

Running 17:48 [3] 3.56 km (5:00 / km) +66m 4:35 / km
ahr:159 max:176

Managed not to get mugged (helped that it was quite wet and I don't think muggers like the rain) out and back along woodhouse ridge, within a couple of hundred metres of my weekly target so all good. Slight bruising above outside right ankle - from the recent sprain, nothing feeling tender in my fibula so I will continue to 32.2km next week. Still taking calcium tablets, 1 each day and 1 additional one if I've run on that day. Each tablet is 50% RDA of calcium and vitamin D. Drinking a pint of milk and eating cheese most days too. Not really sure of the effects of having too much calcium are but I do know the effects of having too little.

Running 44:07 [2] 8.6 km (5:08 / km) +14m 5:05 / km
ahr:150 max:164

Big group from work along the river at exactly the pace I wanted to run at today so perfect, very pleased to get through all of January pretty much issue free (mild ankle sprain and mild calf strain cleared up fine).

Orienteering 59:39 [3] 9.86 km (6:03 / km) +182m 5:32 / km

Northcliffe and Heaton woods. First time I've managed a forest score night without doing something completely stupid like wearing shorts, forgetting my headtorch, running off the map trying to take a shortcut, not being able to find my watch - so it actually felt like I was doing some training. Nice and slippy and muddy, a nice reminder of training in Houghall. Spent about 30s at the start drawing on a linear course (definitely good for me) but forgot to start my watch on time. Time went on and I was on my way back picking up the last few controls with 5 minutes left and was feeling chuffed with myself at managing to get the full set in the 60 minutes. 50 metres from the finish I heard the time for someone ahead of me as 44, thinking this was 59:44 I was pleased to be rolling in just under the hour limit. Then I finished and was greeted by 60:05, the previous time must have been 59:54 and felt like a mug.

Two days later and I'm still not over it.

6 PM

Cricket 1:00:00 [0]

Got smashed, lost by nearly 100 runs. My first over bowling was loose and expensive. I got my line and a bit more rhythm in my second over and got a couple of wickets. Afterwards I was told by one of our opposition to teach one of their team to spin because I could actually turn the ball and he couldn't which was encouraging even though my bowling wasn't great.

Then batting I managed to get caught first ball off two bowlers doing a defensive shot that went straight back to them. I was with Jason who doesn't run much which forced me into playing more expansive shots I'm not as good at. Would much prefer someone that I could tap and run with.
