rehabby stuff 10:00 [1]

Then went to Wellington, didn't take running gear on account of forecast and schedule. Both cleared up enough that getting out for a bit Saturday morning would have been an option. Such is life.

Run 37:30 [3]
shoes: Asics Trabuco 2018

Gentle-ish lap of North Hagley including around the edge of the gardens. Was going to run home from work but just didn't feel like it. So tactically lined up a colleague to ask me tomorrow how my run was, so that avoiding the potential guilt trip warded off the old CBF once I got home :-)

Orienteering (sprint) 20:48 [5] **** 2.8 km (7:26 / km)
spiked:23/26c shoes: Asics Trabuco 2018

Sprint race, Avonside Girls and surrounding red zone. Legs a bit heavy right from the start - either still a fair bit of Sunday's work-out in them (I thought about a light run yesterday - apparently thinking about it isn't enough) or the walk over from work in the warm evening didn't help. Technically pretty well under control except took a leg or so to get my head into the school section of the map - hence an unnecessary pause on the way to 1. Other than that, a bit of poor discipline at 12 - my compass told me that the control I could see couldn't possibly be the right one, but much easier to run to the control I could see (my compass was right). And wrong route choice 14-15, going around some green that given how far the guy who got to 14 just after me was ahead to 15, wasn't green that needed to be gone around. And then just couldn't get back in front of that guy, until he almost missed the last control... Interestingly still around the 50% margin over most of the guys who used to be at the top of the results when I ran elite in sprints. However I think they will agree with me not to discuss the times that the Joe Lynches and Nick Hanns clocked in at...
