BAOC Urban Event at Tenby - MO 7.0km

What a great location for an urban. Start, finish and final controls in caves on the beach whilst the tide was out. Good mix of long and short legs making full use of the area. Could have made the map double sided as it was very criss-crossy but that was my only criticism.

Hard to analyse where i dropped time as you couldn't run full speed with so many controls and corners.

Time losses:
#4 25s thought the road was a dead end (it wasn't) so after running down it for 40m i turned around
#20 ~ 10s poor route choice gaining a bit of height when i should have stayed low
#30 ~10s hesitation trying to decipher the control descriptions. Probably woud have been a better leg if it was low rather than high.

Welsh League event at Preseli - Brown 7.8km


Completely different terrain to that I have been used to recently and although it looked easier on the map, i was struggling to make sense of the small rocks and binned a lot of time where i would expect to be clean. Also not a lot of features except for the feature in the circle so if you didn't spike it straight away it was hard to relocate.

Time losses:
#1 30s Got confused in the many reentrants north that weren't mapped
#5 3:20 Clearly wasn't concentrating enough to tick off large rocks. Unded up searching far too early.
#7 decided to do some scrambling rather than go back up near 5
#15 2:35 Spotted 16 but still went straight past it and had to relocate on 16

TTC Swim part 1 in the 25m pool ~ 825m

200m kick
200m turn on the T
200m turn on the whistle

Swimming 36:57 [2]

TTC Swim part 2 in the 20m pool ~ 1940m

This pool is way hotter than the other one so it feels like a turkish bath. This session was brutal and kept on building, just when i thought it had maxed out it would get tougher

2 x 40m Skulling drills [10s] (back, front, side)
4 x 80m progressive [10s]
4 x 80m at pace [20s]
4 x 80s descending stroke rate [15s]

Swimming 1:03:46 [2]

TTC Swim ~ 3640m

Nice and tough again today. Probably felt that way as arms were still feeling yesterday's circuits. New skill learned today was sightings (looking up where your going for a brief second without losing any speed)

Session was:
600m easy with deckout every 100m
10 min easy pull buoy and band
Then a complicated one:
6 x 300m with 2 sightings every length for first 100m, 1 for next 100m, 2 for last 100m. Paces was meant to be CSS+4 for reps 1+2, CSS+2 for reps 3+4, CSS for reps 5+6.
Finshed off with progressive 6 x 40m - times were 43, 37, 36, 35, 34, 33
7 PM

Running 49:03 [2] 9.5 km (5:10 / km) +11m 5:08 / km
shoes: inov8 X-TALON 212 (Red+Black)

Still nervous about doing any of the shorter faster stuff so once i eventually got out the house chose to do 45 mins round some slightly damp fields.
