Sunday Mar 31 #

steady run warm up/down 15:00 [3]

To start and then a few cursory jogs and some legs stretching.

orienteering race 52:00 [5]

SOL, Dumyat. Started poorly -struggled to read map (contact lenses slightly mis-rotated) then started heading to 12 rather than 2, luckily a decent line anyway... Got going OK after this, just a bit of a struggle to keep running - legs tired and lacking motivation.
Lost time on long leg - went right then doubled back down road. Missed last control - ran right past it and missed finish (mis-marked on map...) cost me 30 seconds or so - and E beat me by 17 seconds... :-) that'll teach me!
2 mins down on CA so reasonably satisfied given tiredness and lack of real drive today.

Saturday Mar 30 #

steady run warm up/down 20:00 [3]

Warm up to start

orienteering race 35:00 [3]

Scottish Middle Distance Champs
Decent run - started hard then a bit wobbly on a couple of downhill legs, then nerve spasm in right glute meant leg collapsed... had to slow down to stretch - lost 40-50 secs due to this on 12 then flustered and couldn’t read map leaving 12, missed track and lost 1 minute. Still 3 mins down on CA:-(

Tuesday Mar 26 #

cycling 15:00 [3]

Short whiz to the garage to pick up car. Lovely sunny morning, fresh feel to air - great.

steady run warm up/down 46:00 [3]

Along Deeside Way eastwards to start of intervals plus back from end. Only struggled from Dess burn up the final hill.

Intervals 24:00 [5]

6x4+2 on Deeside Way. good session, slightly easy start to get going but pushed all the way to the last one - dying a bit on second half of it. Legs felt OK and less right leg niggling than last week (did a few glute warming-up exercises during jog to start.
Feeling some fitness may be returning.
