Saturday Nov 23 #

9 AM

Running warm up/down 12:00 [2] 2.0 km (6:00 / km) +60m 5:13 / km

Orienteering 21:00 [3] 3.4 km (6:11 / km) +120m 5:15 / km

Sprint intervals around Vic Uni. Three intervals of around 6mins each. Second two went into the most technical parts of the map. Definitely need to invest extra seconds in understanding the whole route before blasting off .

Orienteering 11:45 [4] 2.0 km (5:53 / km) +50m 5:13 / km

Moved up to Karori cemetery for a couple of mass start trainings. First up was runners choice. Happy with my choice, although the map was dodgy - what was a passable wall and yellow on the map actually had graves on the lost a fair whack of time going around it. Got beaten by 3/4 of the boys.

Orienteering 12:15 [4] 2.32 km (5:17 / km) +70m 4:35 / km

Butterfly loop mass start. So much climb, so much lactate. Slipped on a corner and cut my leg open on a grave headstone...i'm probably going to hell anyway, but add another eternity to my sentence. :/
2nd this time round.

Running 50:00 [1] 6.0 km (8:20 / km) +300m 6:40 / km

Running 40:00 [2] 8.1 km (4:56 / km) +40m 4:49 / km

Stopped at QEII park on the way home for a nice flat run. Or, up and down the dunes until I got tired and bailed out to the beach. Beaut day. Mountains one day, beach the next. So good to be home
7 PM

Football 23:00 [3]

First game of indoor in about 10 years. Still as intense as I remember. So out of breath so fast! Didn't score but set up a few - standard.

Missioning 2:15:00 [3] 13.0 km (10:23 / km) +1240m 7:02 / km

Up in the 'naki for a job interview. Declined their offer of flying me up and instead drove up - gave me two nights with my brother and his family, and an afternoon on Mt Taranaki :)
Headed up Fanthom's peak. The cloud cleared while I was in my interview, so was clear skies and a stunning afternoon for it. Not much running on the way up, boy it gets steep above the bushline! Was literally 2 steps forward for 1 slide back on the scree. Tough work. Had a couple of patches of snow to negotiate just before the peak, but could climb around them rather than having to risk the crossing. Windy as at Syme hut, so was welcome for the shelter. Took in the surroundings and had a bite to eat before having real fun sliding back down the scree slope.

Did a loop of the nature walks at the bottom, partly to get some actual running in, partly to see the waterfalls, and partly cos I didn't want to get back in the car just yet.

Interview went well enough, and living in Taranaki would be alright. I mean. It has a nice mtn ;)

skjog 34:00 [2] 5.2 km (6:32 / km)

skjog in watchtower as malcolm said it was quite nice and ready for remapping. Very true in the first couple of blocks...then I skjogged too far and had a lot of fun extricating myself from block #3 which still has A LOT of thinned trees covering the ground. Eventually found my way out, with a direct hit on the old fire ponds, so had to do more bush bashing to get out around the ponds.

All in all though, the dunes are as beautiful as i remember. Getting close to remapping age.

Strength and Conditioning 10:00 [1]

Monday Nov 18 #

4 PM

Missioning 2:44:00 [3] 22.8 km (7:12 / km) +1050m 5:51 / km

Can't make the rogaine on Wednesday evening, so had a run around the map this evening. Went out intending to do 2hrs, almost cut it home after 1.5, but then ended up doing 2.45. Go figure.
Can't give much away before Wednesday, so distance and climb to come. ;)
