Running warm up/down (XC) 8:00 [3]
shoes: inov-8 oroc 280

Slightly more intensive than I wanted but was a tad late.

Orienteering race (Forest) 1:49:45 [2] ***** 10.9 km (10:04 / km)
shoes: inov-8 oroc 280

Jarladubbeln long distance. Felt poo again today, no energy, no composure and not really that interested as a result.

My blister still hurts and I think that all this running in a funny way to avoid the pain has had an effect on my achilles :(

Saw a huge moose, 2nd time since being in Sweden. You really don't want to get in the way of one of them, not even in a car. Think very large horse and almost as fast.

shoes: inov-8 oroc 280

Orienteering race (Forest) 53:30 [3] ***** 5.5 km (9:44 / km)
shoes: inov-8 oroc 280

Jarladubbeln middle distance. Not good sleep last night, around 5 hours. Started this race fast though, wanting to have another race feeling like on Wednesday. This lasted until about 10 minutes in where all my energy went and I started making big mistakes.

Running warm up/down (Road) 10:45 [2] 2.2 km (4:53 / km)
shoes: adidas cc ride

5:25 WU
5:20 WD

Running tempo (Road) 9:38 [4] 2.5 km (3:51 / km)
shoes: adidas cc ride

Thought I might try out my new road running shoes - bought 2 pairs of them in Scotland at a JJB that had a closing down sale, £75 BOGOF. They are as good as the pair of Nike Zoom I used to have in terms of how light and bouncy they are but I think slightly less comfortable and a lot less good going around corners at speed. So a bit disappointed all in all and according to reviews I have read they won't last that long either. Oh well, at least I got them cheap.

Was a bit concerned after a few minutes of warm up - was feeling a bit chesty. Still, I was determined to see how fast I could go so did half of my 5km road loop at sprint race effort. Some slight complaints from the lower back region but none from the shins so quite happy. I bet it would have been worse without the ultra-light footwear. No significant restriction breathing wise but I was gobbing out some yellowy chunks afterwards - think I need more sleep.

Pleased with 3:50 per km, not bad for a fat man with a blister.

Orienteering race (Forest) 35:30 [4] ***** 4.4 km (8:04 / km)
shoes: inov-8 oroc 280

So after a Summer break the Luffaligan starts again and where better to kick off than at Paradiset. Felt truly amazing - a combo of lots of training/sleep in Scotland and then 3 full days off. Was running so strongly found it quite difficult to keep up with the map reading. Didn't make any huge mistakes but was very scrappy both in the circle and on route.

Someone pretty good turned up and did 28 minutes - wow. Regardless of the plentiful hills and lots of rock elites can still do 6mins/km because it is so runnable. I love Stockholm :)
