Sunday Sep 3 #

9 AM

Cycling 3:19:40 [4] 89.5 km (2:14 / km) +426m 2:11 / km
slept:6.3

Strawberry 50 (well, 55 miles actually!) from Histon Rec, eastwards to Gamlingay, Barrington and back... some undulations, but the main issue was the wind. I rode with Simon from work, but he was stronger than me on flatter and windier sections. The one time I was stronger was climbing - my slighter frame only an advantage going up! Still, a decent way to spend a Sunday morning.

Orienteering 56:47 [4] *** 6.9 km (8:14 / km) +260m 6:55 / km
shoes: Inov-8 Mudclaw 265 Blue

O-training on Epping East (jogged from High Beech to Jan Mitre start area)... used Black course in reverse with added legs to mimic Middle race legs - generally going okay. Also did 6 reps of the good southern most hill on the map (about 350m loop with 25m of climb on each).

Friday Sep 1 #

Wednesday Aug 30 #

7 AM

Running 29:05 [3] 6.0 km (4:51 / km)
slept:6.8 shoes: Asics GT1000

From Homerton down to connect to my other Cam college (Corpus) and back via Brooklands. Tendons okay...

Tuesday Aug 29 #

5 PM

Running 57:47 [3] 12.0 km (4:49 / km)
slept:6.2 shoes: Asics GT1000

Lovely jaunt from Homerton - Long Rd, path to Brooklands, Newnham, Grantchester Meadows and back via Trumpington & Long Rd again. Tendons tightening by the end.

Monday Aug 28 #

2 PM

Mountain-biking 1:24:45 [3] 29.0 km (2:55 / km) +40m 2:54 / km
slept:3.2

In spite of late shift (and early waking), I got out for this cracking new route in the heat of the afternoon: North End, Burwell, Upware, Reach, Swaffham Prior and back via the 'A14' drove road & Heath Rd. Probably only about 8K on roads, the rest of droves and paths - some quite bobbly and technical. Great stuff and one to use throughout the year (though suspect will get much muddier come winter!).
