Orienteering (Lightpole) 47:40 [3] 6.57 km (7:15 / km) +62m 6:56 / km
ahr:164 max:185 12c shoes: Salomons XR Mission

First timer at light pole - arrived with seconds to spare and ended up delaying everyone a few mins while fletch gave me the 411 - sorry all.

Should have looked at the map really first because would have opted to go north first had I thought for a few second - oh well. collected 12 - jogged a fair bit but with intermittent walking. proving fitness is definitely not where it needs to be!

First time running since 12 hr and in the Salomons - found them amazing light and very comfortable - a tiny bit of pinching on my left big toe but im sure as the shoes break in a bit more that will go - either that or blister proofing there for 24 hr.

Anyhow progressed nicely through course and as I flipped the sheet to start the second side i thought I wonder what time I am at - 43 minutes -eek legged it home from there and came in at 4740 not too bad for first time.

Big toe reassured me that its still got issues later in the night toenail still intact though so maybe the run was enough to push it over the edge - guess time will tell.

Running in the jacket wasnt pleasant by the end and in fact was more of an annoyance and turned out quite cold at the end when having a chat to shane, ricky et al.

Hardly felt I earned all the shitty food I had today - also should really stretch been feeling tight and sore and my old mans knees are letting me know about it!

Looking forward to the weekend but I have heard that Tooms clown will be there so that will take the shine off it.

edit 1 - oh also I am starting to see the benefit of Garmin over iPhone - I deny ever making this statement.

Walking 3:00:27 [2] 13.51 km (13:21 / km) +208m 12:24 / km
ahr:119 max:142 shoes: Salomons XR Mission

Decided to go for a walk.

Started walking was enjoying so kept walking :P 3hrs later got home.

3rd day in a row doing leg work - legs are definitely feeling it a bit. particularly when this walk also included 1 km up the beach from south city beach to city beach.

Bold hill was nice too.

No new blisters so I think the shoe breaking in must be getting close to done. Am struggling a little with a good tightness for the lacing but ill get there... also need some thicker socks as feeling the impact factor on my feet a bit more today.

Ankles recovering nicely after the smashing they took on Sunday - its about the only thing I am unsure on with these shoes - they don't give enough support on the ankle I think anyway.

Mmm what to do tomorrow - walking is a tad long and boring and definitely need to rest legs until Thursday and try make lighto this week.

Orienteering race 1:40:00 [4] 8.0 km (12:30 / km)
ahr:164 max:184 shoes: Salomons XR Mission

A bit of guessing going on here didn't take my iphone and pack with em for a change.

Flogged myself as hard as I could but wasn't fast! Nav was pretty good generally never felt lost and generally came out where I wanted to I was just slow.

Breaking in the new shoes still - went over on ankle awkwardly a few times need to lace them tighter - injinjis where nice thanks to whoever tipped those - will be getting some more!

Ian and I managed exactly the same time on one of the routes so pretty well paired. Only bad bit was I finished the second leg and was told mass starting all those that need to go still so I had to run up download and restart - was gutted because was looking forward to sit down!

Heart rate indicated a good hit out (guess the amount from memory as cant be assed getting watch atm)

Struggling now - headache kicking in as per the norm - feet are a bit sore - first run since the 12hr rogaine.

Incidentally (question to the floor) - blisters I got at the rogaine had completely disappeared resurfaced today (no fluid or pain - assuming just the loose skin) is it better at this point to remove this skin so blisters don't continue to reoccur of just let the loose skin heal back over time?! I know your not supposed to pop/remove them initially but its been quite some time now and I think the healing process must be done underneath?

Good chance will team with Ian for the 24hr too - so was a productive day.

Rogaining 4:30:00 [1] 12.0 km (22:30 / km)

12 kms ish I would guess for the rogaine training in dryandra - picked up some handy hints was good fun.

Started to break in the new shoes too.
