Running - easy warm up/down 45:00 [2]
shoes: Inov-8 Oroc 280 May 2019

Bit of a weird one, ran from the car when the arena was so far away. Then straight back after.

Orienteering - medium 1:02:00 [3]
shoes: Inov-8 Oroc 280 May 2019

Round the 6-days at auchingarrich. Quite easy cruise, not really any race head on by the time i got to the start so just trying to reacquaint self with the idea of orienteering rather than force it out. Enjoying myself too much (map looked a bit manky on paper but was quite a fun forest in reality) so not a clean run, one quite big mistake where i started running to the wrong control half way through the leg. Need to look at it a bit more later and try to get myself into a higher gear for the other days ive entered.

Running - easy 36:00 [2]
shoes: Saucony Kinvara Feb 2019

Evening jog in the storm saying goodbye to the neighbourhood. Think doms has peaked after Wednesday, was moving much more normally.

Happily there were some good climbs on the bike today and yesterday because it's been a bit sparse for sessions otherwise (X-trainer in the gym not great). Will try and get a good bit of work in next week so i don't get too de-trained :-D

Paths and terrain, mostly with mum. Shuffling after last night but no damage. Glad i got away with it after so long away from that kind of effort.

Alternative training 2:15:00 [2]

Had to get in at least one bike ride. Tempted by the climb up from egton bridge up onto the rosedale road, then back down glaisdale. Out 3 but lots of faff/downhills, chain couldnt quite hack the climb...

S&C 20:00 [3]

7 PM

Running - hard race 50:00 [4]
shoes: Inov-8 X Talon 210 May 2019

Trip out to ingleby for another occasional foray into fellrunning. Not the most fun kind actually - a few flattish km along on big tracks, then a proper slog up the Incline, then more flattish km back. Had a good fight for the women's class win, hit the bottom of the incline with Caroline but could tell she was breathing a bit harder. Matched her pace til she popped, then just tried to grind it out without looking back. It's a tough climb. Pleased it was an honest effort and won some beverages for the household :-)
