Still taking the recovery days seriously down here

Tuesday Feb 20 #

7 AM

Running - easy 18:00 [1]

morning jog and drills. throat developed as "usual", would it even be an Iberian training camp without a chesty cough?
11 AM

Orienteering - easy 55:00 [2]

Attempt 2 after driving back to torrevieja to get my map... Contour only with no compass, visualisation. Intense stuff! About 50% great, 45% quite good - okay, 5% #yiezmistake

Running - easy warm up/down 10:00 [2]

5 PM

Orienteering - hard intervals 40:00 [4]

More o-intervals. bit mixed again, especially not very good at all on the first, but mnaged to kick myself into gear more after that. distractions today were some scary dogs at one of my controls and getting a stick in my eye, actually lodged inside my eyelid, i looked like that picture of king harold on the bayeux tapestry haha. had to get a Kemp eye examintion on one of the recoveries but i think it will be fine, maybe a bit scratched. otherwise not too bad and not feeling ill, even the cough was only bad first thing today.

Morning jog and drills
11 AM

Orienteering - easy 1:35:00 [1]

Went to an inland scragg plantation. Not feeling brilliant in my throat and coughing a bit, not sure if it's something i picked up on the flight or just some track hack after the dusty air yesterday. So just taking everything really easy today. Prefer the dunes to that terrain.
6 PM

Running - easy 35:00 [2]

Just an easy jog round punta prima. Followed by some self-locking french window drama and house breaking skills.

Running - easy 25:00 [2]
shoes: Saucony Kinvara Feb 2018

morning jog, a bit more than intended!
10 AM

Orienteering - hard 1:00:00 [4]

first session of the camp, O intervals. good to work through some gears physically (and to actually have some!!) and to pressure my technique after being mostly clean yesterday. and it worked, i was pretty messy. what is deceptive here is being able to have a high speed on some bits and then hitting the ridges/beach wth deep sand and finding it much harder to shift anywhere. it's tough mentally and means it's hard to get into one consistent groove. will be good to analyse properly.

Running - easy warm up/down 20:00 [2]

4 PM

Orienteering - easy 35:00 [2]

Recovery training, middle distance style, going for complete control. Unfortunately i think i got one of those poisonous thorn things in my little toe early one, it hurt a lot and blistered up immediately. i had to stop to check what was going on but decided to continue. It was all a bit too much for my technique, and i was also a bit hampered at times by not having a clue where i was.

Running - easy warm up/down 15:00 [2]

4 PM

Orienteering - easy 42:00 [2]

Hmm a lot of not training, but feel a lot better here and reset now. Anyway back to the dunes! First training, first mid training stop to knock the sand out my shoe, first elderly nudey man (who seemed more shocked than i was, i think he thought he had a quiet spot in the forest. But he was on the red line haha)

Its easier here to believe i have a hope of saving the season.

Running - easy warm up/down 10:00 [2]

First choco leche

Running - easy 30:00 [2]
shoes: Saucony Kinvara Feb 2018

morning jog round and on the lake. usual mix of enjoying the novelty value and shitting my pants.
2 PM

All there was time for before i escaped to some kinder temperatures

Running - easy 1:12:00 [2]
shoes: Saucony Kinvara Feb 2018

Ågesta extended. Nicer off-piste with the surface conditions. Good stress buster.
6 PM

Orienteering - medium intervals 1:05:00 [3]

intervals round night o relay training. even more rusty at night! especially to begin with, the butterfly in the end went a bit better :-) that manky old snow that gives really slowly, like you're on a stepper machine. a bit worried about my crap form but at least i could run with power when i hit a path, so i think its just some more harder runs in heavy terrain i need in the next few weeks.
