steady run warm up/down 10:00 [3]

orienteering race 45:00 [5]

Loch Vaa local event, blue course. Overall good race - felt stronger in terrain than for a long time and only lost time on 2 controls no 1 hesitated in circle, just couldn’t see the flag - maybe low sun glare was blanking it, lost 20-25secs (but still fastest on leg!), then no 3 , drifted too far right and high and misread slope. Worked out fairly quickly but prob 2 mins lost. After that clean and pushing as hard as I could. Caught E & AK at far end of course, rest of race was sufferfest of trying to keep with them!

Saturday Feb 10 #


Very achy so taking day off - part back, part areas that got a hammering yesterday and part groin. Easing off as the day went on.

Friday Feb 9 #


Visit to physio, some painful massage of groin and glute on right. New exercise to add.

orienteering race 49:00 [5]

DNC Corsedarder. Felt Ok running but very sluggish up hills (walking many). Legs probably tired from 2 previous days harder sessions.
A couple of wobbles and hesitations plus overshoot on 1 control (90 secs lost). 7 mins down on JW but only 6th place... area too runnable!

steady run 44:00 [4]

Aboyne, testing new MapRun app on phone. Right lower hams tightened bit early on but eased, then at end right glute was aching - good sign, its doing some work.

steady run 12:00 [3]

Hill of Banchory. Right hip/glute felt good at start, only pain was lower down at top of hamstring - different place=good in my view :-)

Pilates 1:00:00 [1]

Intervals 12:00 [5]

Intervals Deeside Way, 6x2+1. Right groin slightly restricting me - didn't want to stride out too much, so tried to keep high cadence and shorter strides. Felt like hard work. Right hip/glute OK
