Basic Workout 10:00 [3]

Run warm up/down 10:00 [3]

The 5 warming down should probably be a "2", but just staying on my feet was enough of an achievement to count as a "3"

Run (Time trial) 20:55 [5]

Tutu Road Time Trial. Really stupid conditions to be doing this in. Super hot and humid. But somehow...

Out: 9:51 (-19 secs from 12/11/09)
In: 11:04 (-22 secs)

I was aiming to break 10 for the outward leg (it took me longer than that to DRIVE out to the highway saturday morning - admittedly sheep were being moved around at the time) but thought in doing so, especially given the conditions, that all I would achieve in doing so would be an increase in the total time. So I'm especially astounded by the return leg - and yes I was still certain I was going to die any moment while I was doing it. WILL hurt tomorrow.

I may consider doing all future time trials in Darwin now.

Spent the weekend mooching about in various parts of the BOP. Had various interesting ideas for runs or sprint orienteering self-training but turned out to be one of those weekends where I needed someone to give me a kick up the butt to get out there. Did get to connect with some good friends, and got in some good manly grunting helping some of said friends ressurect their farm shed doors.

Basic Workout 10:00 [3]

I hope I can fit in at least a short run this pm, but this might turn out to be it for the day

Basic Workout 10:00 [3]

Walking 25:00 [1]

Walk home from Tutu block. Mod heavy pack & kept the pace up once on the road. Found a bit of scallop on the road, but unfortunately not fresh enough to eat. In fact doubt it had seen the sea since, ummm, the Oligocene???

Run (50% terrain) 30:00 [3]

Still not had enough for the day. Recovery run after yesterday. Out most of the way to the highway then up between Robin & John's houses then around the back of Tutu block, through the rock garden then dropped back down to the road to home. Much more fun than just the mailbox run which is what I thought I was doing when I left home. Making stuff up on the run can be good.

Calf tightness not responding to the course of Ignore it and it will go away treatment I'm giving it. But not feeling like a major problem so far....

Basic Workout 10:00 [3]

Run intervals (terrain) 16:00 [5]

4 x 4 minute ints (I have been advised on my semantics - apparently I can only call them reps if I fully recover between each one, but that would take all week!)

Not the best effort ever but not the worst either. At least until I died in the last minute of the last, er, int

Run intervals 24:00 [3]

"down time" for a 40 minute session in total
