7 AM

warm up/down (Walking) 15:00 [1]
shoes: black+blue

Feeling a bit out of sorts and mysterious foot pain didn't help.
8 AM

Park Run (Greenway) 40:40 [3] 5.3 km (7:40 / km)
shoes: black+blue

3 loop course due to construction site. No effort involved today - foot clearly giving me an unwanted and unsolveable problem. To add insult to injury there has been a stuff up in results and I got the time of the person behind me.:-((

Monday Apr 15 #


Walking downstairs just before leaving for gym felt strong twinge in left calf , dead in middle - not sure if "pulled" or cramp. Did a bit of stretching and felt I enjoyed it so thought it was cramp. No sign at gym but noticeable out at lunch with friend and this afternoon (both after period of inactivity)
9 AM

gym class (Cross Trainer) 1:00:00 [4]
shoes: white puma

Full on class. Struggled on first run but fine thereafter, which is weird as I'm finding with parkrun that I'm not negative splitting as I used to do but gym I seem to be getting faster as class goes along. Humans are very complicated.

Event (Powerlines) 47:00 [2]
shoes: new black O

Fantastic training event and sooo many people. DL set up some control sites - possibly 25 and it was a score format. Clever part was that Moderate had to get 13, Short Hard had to get max of 17, Medium Hard 21 and Long Hard 25 all within 60 mins. This also meant that when 2 training groups arrived we didn't actually run out of maps as it was the same map with dashed lines to indicate the boundaries for each course. Very helpful!
I did a rookie error before I started, but didn't realise until on way to my 3rd control when I failed to find the linear thick section as a vegetation boundary for an attackpoint. I don't usually draw lines on my map when I do score courses but decided to do so this time... with a green highlighter. Hence several linear green patches appeared on the map but not in real life.
Anyways I didn't run, loved the section in the watercourse (but that was my poorest control but certainly most enjoyable), knew #12 was a "danger" control so wan't heartbroken when I couldn't find it. I got back with oodles of time to spare. Happy day out in the bush.
