Tuesday Oct 26, 2010 #

6 PM

Running warm up/down 28:33 [1] 5.04 km (5:40 / km)
shoes: Asics Running shoes

jog over and then back with Mike while he was on the bike

Running intervals 21:45 [5] 6.0 km (3:38 / km)
shoes: Asics Running shoes

6x1km's with 90secs rest. But it was more like 2mins, as the rest started at last finisher out of the juniors.
Felt dead, not like lactic acid, just lacked any energy. Got a little enthusiastic on no.2, kind of hoped that if i picked it up it'd stretch the legs a bit more. But no, didn't help. The 5th was a real struggle and was quite unenthusiastic. But they'll be alright.
Times: 338, 329, 336, 338, 343, 337

10 AM

Orienteering 1:14:42 [3] *** 11.65 km (6:25 / km) +475m 5:20 / km
shoes: Inov8 X-Talons

O' Course I planned on Massey's (which was nice) and Hellfire (which wasn't so nice). Ran around with Colm, Roar and Conor as Regina did her own thing. Ran grand, some controls in green, very very green.
Sportstracks made the distance a lot longer than I had expected.

9 AM

Running warm up/down 2:00 [1] 0.29 km (7:00 / km)
shoes: Asics Running shoes

Orienteering intervals (Sprint-O) 30:30 [5] **** 7.1 km (4:18 / km) +50m 4:09 / km
shoes: Asics Running shoes

Cool Sprint-O intervals planned by Laurence. Jonathan, myself, Ruairi, and Conor ran them too.
Course1. Tried to go straight to 8, but it's not doable here. Ruairi and Conor unluckily tried to go left to 9, before correcting. And Laurence went straight and got stuck behind greens on the 10th. I also went by myself to 2, when the others went right.
Course2. Lead for most of this after Ruairi ran into a lampost on the way to no.3. Interestingly diff. routes to 1. And a bad route by me to the last meant I should've been beaten but Ruairi messed up the control.
Course3. Lead after no. 5 in this, when everyone got a small bit confused. Different routes to 8, ended up similar. But i Ruairi went in front when I got baffled to no.11. I went ahead to the last but punched the wrong corner :L
Course4. This one was insane. Laurence lead from start to finish. But it was very complex and a lot of following went on here.
Course5. This one was a lot more like a real sprint-o but involved a lot more running because of this. Ruairi got the first one right as me and Conor tried to figure the area out. I went ahead with a better route to 2. All but Laurence went the same way to 5 and the navigation wasn't to bad from here on in.

5 cool courses! Well planned, mixing complex detail with lots of long routes. Good fun!

Cycling: Commute 25:00 [2]

3 PM

Running warm up/down 7:22 [1] 0.98 km (7:31 / km) +29m 6:33 / km
shoes: Inov8 X-Talons

Running (TT Pace Run) 25:05 [5] 5.18 km (4:51 / km) +201m 4:03 / km
shoes: Inov8 X-Talons

Pace Run around the Time Trial route with Jonny and Laurence.
Had originally hoped to see how I lasted at 6.10 per lap, and see how it went.
But, the conditions were worse than a few weeks ago, fairly reasonable, but slightly worse. I was also a bit slow anyway. Hadn't properly stretched, and legs were tighter than usual and the knee was a bit restricting too. I struggled to keep up the pace and was immediately a good bit back on my hopeful. But, meh, I wouldn't have run as fast as the Time Trials anyway, it being a pace run and all. So, happy!

Laps----Split 1----Split 2----Split 3----Total lap
