Saturday Sep 24 #

2 PM

Running 11:41 [2] 2.58 km (4:32 / km)

we had to rush down a bit, but kept off the back cos I wasn't keen to over-exert, turned out we had plenty of time.

Running 17:27 [5] 5.0 km (3:29 / km)
shoes: barefoot

St. Andrew's chariots of fire beach 5km
Mostly just for uni teams I think.

Went barefoot after much debate. Hard to tell if it made a difference to the race, but my feet are shredded now afterwords, 4 decent blisters to work against. The hobble is real.

Quick start, but kept the pace high to try keep with the leaders to halfway, while the wind was behind us. Clipping nicely, but the front 3 started to gap me a little just before the turn around, gained back a little in the rougher puddles section, but not a lot.
Turned into the wind and the hope of drafting was gone, wasn't close enough to get back, and it was fierce out. After a while Pierre came up to me, and we could work together a little, defintiely got a wee bit of drafting. We got past 2 buckos, but first was miles out. We had dropped the 2 boys, but one came back strong in the finish to put up a sprint. I made him work, but he had me in the end.

Finished in 3rd.
We weren't far from the team gold, as Liam was just a little back too, but Aberdeen had serious numbers.

Really gruelling 5km. Tough as.

Running 28:39 [1] 5.01 km (5:43 / km)

Hobble back, then a lap with Liam, and a little more by myself.

Friday Sep 23 #

5 PM

Running 1:28:37 [2] 17.39 km (5:06 / km) +400m 4:34 / km

Was nae in the mood at all, but got out for a wee one.
Made the most of my recently-acquired knowledge of Blackford, and some new trails.
Went searching for a route up to the seat then, but seemed to be going away from it, so bottled it and turned around too early, then got thoroughly lost in some housing shite, before eventually doing a very brief loop along the crags.
Actually feeling alright, and feels like I'm starting to get back towards fitness.

Cycling: Commute (1:60) 40 [3]

5 PM

Running 59:42 [2] 11.12 km (5:22 / km) +100m 5:08 / km

Home from college to King's Buildings, via Craiglockhart and Blackford.
Not mad keen on the bag, but much nicer than the mournes, and noticed it less as it went on.
Took a wrong turn in Craiglockhart and ended up doing some wretched climb only to come straight back down. Nice exploration run.

Orienteering 16:04 [4] *** 3.71 km (4:19 / km)

King's Buildings sprint course by Tim.
Struggled to keep on top of myself for the first 3, but as soon as we got the long leg to the 4th it became easy to plan ahead. Enjoyable though, didn't get to fully inspect routes so might have had a few wrong ones.
Moving alright, but nothing special, cruising.

Running 11:11 [1] 2.03 km (5:31 / km)

plod home.
