Street Orienteering

Wed evening Squat work:
A bit all over the place I'm afraid.....
warmed up with the bar, 2 sets of 10.
40kg 2 x 8
60kg 2 x 6 - Hip started niggling so playing around with much wider stance - almost sumo.
70kg 2 x 5
80kg - Hip still 'iffy' so I put on my squat suit and belt for another 6 sets of 3.

Asked Rhys to come have a look at my form to make sure I am getting depth. Way past parallel - Good.

Straight after my squat workout I took up Louise's suggestion to have a go at street orienteering. With profound vision I chose to do the powerwalking rather than running. I have to admit to cheating for the first couple of control points by following the crown. Once I got the hang of reading the map I was on my way, even venturing into the 100 acres reserve on my own and managing to find a couple of control points by myself AND manage to find my way back out of the reserve! :-) About 55mins total time and 8 control points - 72 points out of 100. When I finally got home, starving and exhausted, I needed to ice my foot which swollen and sort. Louise sent me the link to the results the next day and I came in around mid field for the power wlakers - not bad for a first effort.
