Running warm up/down 30:00 [3]

Orienteering race (Aus Sprint Champs) 20:16 [3]

Pretty bummed about this one. Thought i was off to a much worse start than i think i might have actually been and was getting myself super flustered. Tried to cut the corner a little bit on the way to 5 and missed seeing the stairs on the map and ran into a dead end in some toilets. Stress got worse and instead of stopping and figuring out why i couldn't get through or running back to the road and around i was an idiot and lost so much time. After that I took a few more bad route choices but there was no coming back at all after that one.

Running warm up/down 31:00 [3]

15min jog, 6min of drills, and then 10min jog home

Running intervals 20:00 [3]

30second efforts on a 2min cycle. Underestimated how warm it was when i left the house and regretted the t-shirt choice. Felt good running and think i had ok pace on the efforts, legs got jelly at least.

Strength + Conditioning 21:00 [3]

Mostly core.

Pre work pre breakfast jog. Legs took a bit to get going but they ended up feeling good, quads were just a little tired going uphill. Nice morning, enjoyed it :)

(rest day)

Was hanging out for semester break and a rest day last week but I had absolutely no idea what to do with all my time. Strolled home from an early shift at work and got so bored I went for an extra walk later on. Legs don't feel too bad though!

Running race 38:54 [3] 8.9 km (4:22 / km)

Blackmores Running Festival Bridge Run. The first 1.5km was spent weaving through people as to be expected I guess, but everyone went relatively fast at the start so I don't think it made too much of a difference. Didn't notice the gradual climb in the early kms and then there was a lot of flat and downhill until about 2.5km to go, so it was a pretty fast course. Felt strong on the hills near the end and I was catching people up them so I think that helped mentally. Expected to have an extra loop though so I didn't realise when i was really close to the finish, pretty annoying because I definitely shouldve been pushing harder there! I feel like I was pretty comfortable for it all though and wanted to do under 41, so I'm really happy. Especially after the footy last night and a shocking nights sleep of about 4hours. Did enjoy some freebies at the finish too ;) Will definitely want to do this again, my top pick of races if I ever want to have a good crack at a marathon or a half too I think!
