orienteering 42:00 [3]

Control collecting - legs feeling surprisingly good for having stood around coaching for 2 hours and feeling like ice blocks. Nice forest - if bit rocky in places!

steady run 40:00 [3]

Lap of Dess Woods with S - head torches. Nice evening and pretty mild. Super-moon not quite out (a bit of cloud near the horizon).
Feeling OK, but adductors still a bit achey - maybe a good sign that they are working.

stretching 12:00 [1]

Felt pretty good.

orienteering 55:00 [3]

Hanging controls for training in Glen Tanar. Some lovely runnable bits and some... tougher bits.
Almost no snow - all gone under trees, should be great tomorrow.
Legs feeling tired (2 days of sitting down?) and adductors a bit tender - still from skiing?

2nd day of first aid course. Got home and couldn't face going out, slobby day!

Rest day - first aid course in Aberdeen and then changing tyres to snow ones when home. Lots of lovely white stuff outside, but either stuck behind drivers doing 25 or sitting in a room revising first aid.

x-c skiing 1:15:00 [3]

Clash trails with S. Snow much better than expected, a bit thin at start but still skiable - never once grounded and 6-8" at high point.

orienteering race 1:00:00 [5]

DNC Potarch. 5km, 60 mins... snow cover but not too much. 4 misses - 5, too low - must have been close but overshot, then faffed and returned. 8 5m to right and turned away from control... 9 drifted to right and then lost confidence in circle, 10, dead on line missed hilltop by 5m and pushed higher, relocated on hill, came back down on same line as climb and saw reflector... Probably 6-8 mins wasted. Compass was much better tonight, maybe need to work on distance judgement as well next week ;-)

steady run 10:00 [3]

To start and from finish (very slow return).

stretching 15:00 [1]

Slow and tired stretch, hard work!

Intervals 20:00 [5]

Dinnet railway line intervals with S, 5x4+2. Track a bit icy in places - but I wore Icebugs :-). Good session, felt fairly consistent - each one horrible at start, eased in then hanging on a bit at end. Right leg still not 100% but not getting worse during session.
Parked at fishing park at Bog-end, warm up to Dinnet then 2 out 3 back. Good way to do it - reduces distance to grovel along to car at end :-)

steady run 28:00 [3]

Warm-up (started in a sleety blizzard) and back at end. Cold wind going in from north and caught ned of one shower then things eased.

stretching 15:00 [1]

Good session - after I'd brushed the floor to remove the sand that mysteriously appears every couple of days.

Around Hill of Banchory, pavements icy as...

Pilates 1:00:00 [1]
