Friday Mar 15 #

11 AM

Orienteering 35:30 [2] 6.55 km (5:25 / km) +200m 4:42 / km

Model run around Valletta. Still finding the feeling of British colony crossed with Italy very strange.
4 PM

Running warm up/down 43:30 [2] 7.05 km (6:10 / km)

Wu and long wd doing some exploring and chatting with Tess

Orienteering 29:45 [4] 3.75 km (7:56 / km)

MOC stage 1 in Buskkett Gardens.
Today didn't count in the overall standings, so most taking it easy. Thought I was too, but we know I don't fully understand that term. So my record of winning/podiuming in races that don't matter continues haha.
Fun area, map etc on standard with a wellington event, which could explain things. ;) Plenty of uncrossable walls to work around (or in the case of many of the masters, fearlessly jump off!!). A large hill with ruins on top and a sketchy as descent zigzaggin through green and cliffs on tiny precipitous paths. I thought is was fun, but I have my mum's blood and lack of self-preservation on downhills ;)

Thursday Mar 14 #

11 AM

Running 1:20:00 [3] 14.5 km (5:31 / km) +550m 4:38 / km

Run along the coast of Gozo with Øystein and Erik. Yannick with us for the first bit, but then he ditched us to run faster. Beautiful coastline but tough work with the wind. Honest pace keeping up with the guys, but plenty of photo stops for me to catch my breath ;)

5 PM

Running 35:00 [2]

Evening jog close to the city. Coastal strip that the army use for training. I assume not tonight though, as it was dog walker central. Let the boys go ahead so I could cruise my own slow pace.

Tuesday Mar 12 #

(rest day)

Got the sniffles and a tickle in the throat, and travelling tomorrow, so thought I'd give running in the cold a miss today.

Went to the Dr yesterday to get my mandatory Dr certificate for the Italian o federation. Saw a different gp from usual. after reading my notes and listening to me, he had to go through and ask my normal GP if I truely was OK to be running and racing. Haha. Easy to forget how ridiculous my condition was, and recovery has been.

5 PM

Strength and Conditioning 58:00 [1]

Eva is back, strength holiday is over. Some new exercises in there, including one where you lie on your side with legs and arms extended, then lift said legs and arms. I couldn't do it. Not least cos I was giggling too hard. All I could think of was that we all looked like fish out of water struggling to breath. Or like those stupid singing trout door bell things.
Got my giggles under control by the end of the session.

No snow to report. Probably a good thing as we were inside.
8 PM

Football 1:01:00 [2] 7.0 km (8:43 / km)

Skipped the first half hour so I had more rest after and team said that made them happy, as I wasn't there for them to compare against on the shuttle runs. ;)
Mostly possession andgames tonight.
No snow on the pitch. Piles of it at the side though. And the ball just skidded everywhere on the skiddy surface.

Sunday Mar 10 #

4 PM

Running long 1:32:00 [3] 14.75 km (6:14 / km) +370m 5:33 / km

Post hyttevakt short-longrun. Nice to get out in the snow nd sun after being cooped up all day watching other people enjoy the stunning weather.
Started at the boomgate and did a kind of figure 8. first to the west of høiås, then round stangås. Very nice. Stomach was a bit grumpy, definitely not due to waffle consumption.
