Running warm up/down 18:00 [3]

Warm up and a reluctant warm down. I was tired

Orienteering 28:11 [3]

ParkO event #2 at Jesmond Park. Had expected the park to take up at least half the map so was a little shocked when it wasn't even 1/4 of the map. Still think it was a really enjoyable course though which was nice! I overran 7, wasted time standing at 8 picking a route to 9 and then I think I chose the bad route anyway so i lost some time. Still felt a bit congested with my breathing at the end but I was still able to push. Sore legs from intervals though, hammies especially!

Running warm up/down 31:02 [3]

Warm up and warm down with drills. Still pretty warm even after 6, did not take long at all to work up a sweat!

Running intervals 27:35 [3]

Intervals at the track with Macey and Sal. 4x 400m, 200m, 200m. 1min between intervals and then 2min between sets. Not sure how happy I am with it, I felt like I could recover ok between intervals but I barely lifted the pace for the 200's. I'd spent a fair amount of time at the beach during the day and had a little too much sun exposure, so I looked like a tomato and it didn't take much hard work for me to feel it in my gut. Huge headwind for the home straight too which I probably didn't help the times.

Running 30:00 [3]

Got to the gym super early so did an easy 30 on the treadmill.

Body Blitz at the gym. Super tough class! Heaps of leg stuff, i think i'll pull up pretty sore...

Running 1:12:09 [3]

With Macey, Angus and Rob. Started off feeling pretty alright. Then we had a nice section of sand follow by some stairs and that took it out of me a bit. And then the last 15mins ended up as a bit of a battle between me and the half banana i ate for breakfast... And then i ended pathetically and walked the last little bit back to the car :( Surprisingly hot today!

Orienteering 50:00 [3]

Last minute decision to head out to Belford. Regret! Not of going orienteering but the choice of map. Spiders absolutely everywhere, it was disgusting :(((( Kind of a bust regarding the physical point of the session because i was so stop start but i navigated quite alright after control one and i was pleased with my compass. Days like today when i have goosebumps of fear the entire way around and come back covered in sticky spider webs i get confused why i like orienteering so much.
18min warm up then 30min course and no warm down because i was so sick of it hahah. Feeling pretty much 100% again which is a plus though!

Strength + Conditioning (Yoga) 30:00 [3]

6 PM

Running warm up/down 39:10 [3]

Warm up and warm down, a few drills after both. Warm down was a bit longer than planned but i committed to a lap of the lake and had to make it back to the car.

Running intervals 11:00 [3]

A little back to it intervals session at Walka. 3x3/1min. Actually felt so hard which seems a bit ridiculous, my breathing was just going crazy!? Legs were a bit funny too. Not so much tired but just a bit weak. Maybe from getting a good stretch this morning? Pace wasn't too bad but i just didn't feel great.
