Scottish relays, Roseisle

Lesson to be learned here is not running at silly speeds to the start kite, cos I got a bit embroiled in the thrill of it instead of navigating. Lost maybe a minute to #1, which was enough to leave a gap to the front, and never had the dog after that. Ran with tommy for a bit then got dropped and watched him catch judd just ahead, then got caught by angus and rudi when i blundered at #11. lead the train from there with some nice tekkers for a bit then was very surprised to see tommy again at #17, although didn’t have the legs to stick with him until the finish. More lovely forest, decent tekkers, never moving as well as i’d like though but we move.

Scottish champs, Craig Leach - 3rd on course 3

Reasonably happy today, technically fairly sound apart from a couple silly bits. After i’d seen that Dan had missed #1 just got a bit full of myself trying to run away from him, lost contact and ended up wombling about together for a bit to find #2. Then got cracking for quite a long time, forest in this part was absolutely class, really enjoyed just being in it tbh. Lost a minute or so at #13, getting too easily distracted and missing the control. Probably lost some time on the final descent just from being really hesitant and almost having to walk to stay in contact, oddly difficult finish. Foot got jagged by a branch at some point, can’t remember when but wasn’t really an occasion when I was out there, just as soon as I stopped it was painful.

Running warm up/down 10:00 [1] 1.0 km (10:00 / km)

wd with mr bish. hobbling somewhat - went to the first aid tent after a while and got iced. should be sound tomorrow after it loosens off.

Cycling 1:44:33 [2] 50.04 km (28.7 kph) +565m
ahr:144 max:179

Steady caterthuns.

Was planning to just go round the block so had nothing to cater for thirst punctures hunger etc, but very much enjoyed this. Almost clinched a segment had I not stopped at the bottom of the climb for a piss/contemplation session. Not entirely sure where I stand with the 'cold', feels like what I had a few weeks ago, eg a very sore throat and slightly elevated rhr but not much else - just gonna firm it for this weekend and see what happens.

jog there

Swimming 19:56 [1]

big north sea style chop making things fun

S+C 16:00 [1]

5 PM


Various hanging/waking/collecting for the auchenblae event. Quite a sore throat developing throughout today uh oh.

Not really the place to have a whine but for this event to be so well advertised as part of gala week and so well adapted for beginners, and then a total of zero beginners to roll up, proved to be quite disappointing. Maroc talent squad will have to wait.
