Orienteering - race 15:54 [3] 2.26 mi (7:02 / mi)

Gramp sprint race

Lots of fun, fast and furious. Mistake at 17, just getting offline with the direction changes, otherwise good. Alas number 12 didn’t register. SIGH. Emitag things. The things on a bit of Velcro. The Orienteering system I have is left arm navigation (map and compass) right arm punching (descriptions and si dibber). Description holders are so long in comparison to arm length, that the only place to put the velcro thing was behind the descriptions. I could have checked that each punch worked, but it would have been a faff, so I didn’t bother, and they didn’t. Well at least I mispunched here, rather than tonight, or atthe JK. I think the hand is the best place for them in a sprint, not sure about tonight where I might need both hands free for rock climbing.

Edit - just looked at the results and notice that 14 didn’t work either. Double SIGH.

Road running 42:00 [3] 5.0 mi (8:24 / mi)

My theory on Orienteering training is that a little bit is a bad thing. If you go Orienteering and haven’t done it for ages, you expect to get lost so focus more. I’f you've done lots of training you are good. Doing a little bit makes you cocky, which is disastrous. So I stayed on queens drive for tonight’s run despite carrying a map, cause I didn’t want to make myself cocky for the weekend, when I haven’t been night Orienteering for over a year. This was mainly just to check my head torch worked, and I could read a map with it on. It worked. Ready to go for Saturday night!

Craiglockhart from work. Stressed. Average heart rate 179! Didn’t realise stress affected it that much. Usual average is 130-140. Need to find a new job.

XC / road / hill race 31:34 [3] 4.21 mi (7:30 / mi)

Chirnside Borders xc league.

I hadn't done this one before, and it was a bit of an odd course, but I enjoyed it. Megan and I set off hard cause it got very narrow very quickly, and I was glad as we actually stopped at one point it was so congested. Jogged the second half a bit. I knew I had done enough to get 2nd w40 behind Megan, so let the first half of the race get the better of me. Probably last xc race of the season. Enjoyed XC much more this year, after some training. Some more training before next year and Megan is certainly beatable.

Off-road running 12:00 [3] 1.5 mi (8:00 / mi)
