Silly progression challenge, thought I was only doing 12km but found out that my competitor posted 18km yesterday as a second attempt forcing me to do 19km. I didn't want to do it and probably would have had more fun not doing it, but I managed 19km. Right calf tight again and I had foot pain (up to a 2.5/10-highest in a while) and achilles pain (I think) for the first time (it was only two days ago I announced I'd never had achilles pain before and didn't plan to ever lol, I think I've said the same thing about other body parts which ended up getting injured rather soon after). I decided to run through it as it was only 5km left and I didn't want to be out for ages. Will rest it and see. Running form was non existent in the second half, I was tired but didn't expect to be so tired.

Danefield orienteering, a course I'd planned utilising some of the permanent controls. I headed to my last control first, lots of circles on the map, then mucked up 2, I got confused by the streams. I couldn't figure out 4, I was too high up and struggled visualising it, probably would have been better to have had an attackpoint (writing this I've remembered my two step plan to orienteering success which hasn't failed me, I need to utilise it again). After that it was all better though. 17 and 18 I didn't actually visit and I didn't realise. I found equivalent features, but could have seen by the vegetation I was wrong. An attackpoint for 21 would have been useful as well. I felt stronger running today which is encouraging, I couldn't really say how much or if my foot hurt, although it's been hurting around the house a bit (but not if I walk straight). Calf muscles finally recovered.
The ground was frozen, so made descending more demanding than usual, snow was pretty.

I got dragged into a 90 minute long meeting at 2 minutes before I was heading out for my lunch ride, so my lunch filled the 3:30-4:30 slot.

Meanwood is very dry, the little streams have stopped flowing and have been replaced with nothing, or sheet ice, some bits are completely unrideable, but the majority is very rideable. Some stubborn snow is still sticking around, but hardly any on the trails anymore.

I have noticed that my foot hasn't hurt walking around the house much at all this past week - this has also coincided with stopping the exercises and massage that I was doing. I restarted last night as my lower leg has recovered enough to do it without being painful, will find out if it starts hurting again.

ahr:152 max:196

Second time in three days I've started exercise at 7 something whaaatt? Each time seems to get easier, maybe rolling out of bed 5 minutes before 9:30 is a thing of the past. Snowy and very icy morning with Fay and Paul on the Chevin, first time back there in the wood since moving to Leeds. Foot okay to 35 minutes, then 0.5-1/10 off and on for the rest - feels like a battle in my lower leg between running well and not making it hurt, and running badly/tired and then it hurts. Calf muscles quite sore by the end, they're not perfect still.

Beautiful weather, sun was out and then a little flurry of snow, not too much or too long to be unpleasant. just the right amount. Each day the ground seems to get more frozen, need to make the most of it before it all thaws. Decked it on snow covered ice at the bottom of the steps on the underpass, nothing hurt badly.

Frozen mtb in a white meanwood, great fun. But what was worrying was that I woke up around 7:30 without an alarm and decided get out of bed, I'm not sure I can trust myself anymore

Running 34:44 intensity: (27 @0) + (3:27 @1) + (8:23 @2) + (18:46 @3) + (3:03 @4) + (38 @5) 6.42 km (5:24 / km) +132m 4:54 / km

Such fun! I've had my eyes on running on the golf course for a good while, well worth the wait.

Still feeling my calves a lot, but they're well on the mend from where they were. Didn't feel my foot once - haven't been able to do foot exercises since Friday as a muscle or something on the outside of my right ankle/lower leg is hurt - maybe a bit of rest from them has been good for it.

Stroked one of the Shetland ponies in Weetwood which had big Eeyore vibes
