Snot great... snot everywhere

Sensible Mary would have pulled out after a halfa... smart Mary would not have run in the first place... an absolute dire pace, was walking down the hills by the end... felt so sick and crappy!!
Watch says I spend 20mins not moving, and brain game was about on the same level with some real stupid mistakes and scrappy ness being lazy reading contours...
None the less it’s been a lovely weekend in the sun out camping so of course I wanted to run! I really really need to work on/curb my habit of constantly over doing it!
I also felt really pissed off with my job at the end... as Ais even mentioned this morning, I leave myself so susceptible to illness and I literally get a cold at the end of every month when the work load ramps up a bit... had enough... gonna be more proactive looking for something else!

ahr:183 max:197 rhr:61 slept:9.75 (sick) shoes: On Cloud X

Slept a lot better and a bit of catch up last night but still sore throat and congested today!
Felt able to run but did find it hard work and a bit hard to breath!
Weather was beautiful and urban course a bit of fun so would have really enjoyed it if I wasn’t suffering so hard trying to run at any pace! Found it really difficult after about 5km to keep pushing a race pace today and slowed!
Only made one really error which was just terrible exit direction followed by confusion after not slowing to correct out of 13 - otherwise Ais and I have discussed all the choices and I’m pretty happy with mine

to circuits

strength (shuoc circuits) 40:07 [3]
ahr:118 rhr:58 slept:6.5 (sick) shoes: On Cloud X

Have been feeling really crap today - dont know whats caused it (one of the following; housemate is sick, lack of sleep this week, or sitting in the cold for an hour last night) but I had a bunged up nose and slept really badly last night, and sore throat and congested head today! Hoping a good nights sleep tonight will kick it before it starts - but yea not feeling great!

Managed circuits ok though and feeling a bit stronger on most things. so decided to give sprintervals a crack too!
5 PM

orienteering intervals 27:43 [4] ** 4.83 km (5:44 / km) +129m 5:04 / km
ahr:157 max:197 shoes: On Cloud X

Walkley/Poderosa sprintervals with Tenty, Sam and Ais - Ais was taking it easy and I asked her to shadow me but it was really complex enough to bother and I also tried to give it a bit of speed so was just happy to try hold the boys off. Seemed to be smooth and make some good decisions compared to the boys! tried to get the pace up but was pretty knackered by this point
6 PM

orienteering 54:23 [3] ** 4.22 km (12:53 / km) +159m 10:51 / km
ahr:132 max:163 shoes: Inov8 Roclite

Was pretty pissed at a client who just messed me around today and didn’t show so managed to make the orienteering (but could have made it on time), but make it in a bad frame of mind!
Kim kindly gave me her map and I milled about the course but just really wasn’t feeling the energy by this point and was scrappy into controls.
Nice to be out sweating on a beautiful warm sheffield evening :)

Easy mosey around some Dublin sights while I was waiting for parentals to wake up! Left calf still really tight and actually giving me a lot of referred pain down into my foot so will probably take this week real easy and just do my work runs before northerns on the weekend!
