running drills 10:00 [3]

Joining in some of the drills at WFC with TS. Managing mostly OK.

orienteering race 1:20:00 [5]

Anagach, Brown course 8.7km. Legs felt desperate - not sure what did it but they had no power in the muscles. Started slowly plodding and just got slower... :-( Lots of bogs to cross - and they were icy cold :-).
Ended up 15 mins down with only a couple of small errors to cost me time.

steady run 10:00 [3]

Jog to start/back from finish.

orienteering 15:00 [3]

Collecting a few controls at Tomvaich after afternoon session. Lovely area but map a wee bit vague in places.

stretching 20:00 [1]

Showing second group the Perfect 10 set of stretches.

orienteering 16:00 [3]

Hanging controls at Crathie for the Talent Squad weekend session 1.
Lovely area, legs feeling a bit achey from drills - harder than I thought!

orienteering 10:00 [3]

Quick visit to area to check how runners were getting on - saw no-one for a long time then about 6 at once - all on different lines! Gave up and went back to start point for coaching advice.

steady run 1:00:00 [3]

Run from Wild Farm Cottage with TS. Really struggling on his at start but gradually warmed up into it. Nice descent through moor to cottage - though a couple of new deer fences in the way!

stretching 15:00 [1]

Demonstrating Perfect 10 stretches to half the TS.

running drills 16:00 [3]

Usual fast knees, circular feet, high skips and then circular feet to sprint. All OK, sprints especially felt almost 100%. Time to try some speed work... next week ;-)

Surveying 4.5 hours. Mostly felt good, then got hungry and tired near end.

Wednesday Nov 8, 2017 #

steady run 35:00 [3]

Lap of Dess Woods with GG (not gg, but the original one). Good blether and catch up on things. Very pleasant and leg felt fine.


Decided against DNC (first time ever I think). Its pissing down rain, its Hazelhead and the planner has decided to use normal flags not reflectors because its not technical enough... so the quality of O will be down the pan and its a game of hunt-the-thimble. Sod that for a lark.

steady run 12:00 [3]

Hill of Banchory, let quite good and focussing on high knees and good (relatively) style.

Pilates 1:00:00 [1]

god session, some hard core work with balancing on squishy ball while doing various exercises. Felt well stretched after, probably feel it in legs/core tomorrow.
