Monday Jan 16 #

off road 54:12 [3] 5.0 mi (10:50 / mi)

A damp Purdown - tired and lacking enthusiasm - still 3 hills though

Note

Back a bit sore - I fell a couple of times yesterday perhaps I have tweaked it

Sunday Jan 15 #

1 AM

road run 20:00 [2] 1.0 mi (20:00 / mi)

Warm up, run to start, collecting controls
2 AM

orienteering race 1:31:36 [5] 8.6 km (10:39 / km)

BOK galloppen -Cannop Ponds. Extensive churning of the ground by the pigs has made the forest softer and more challenging to run through. The race started in a new and most welcome addition of nice woodland cut through with steams in deep re-entrants. I was slow up and down the slippery slopes. I also found it difficult to take the right lines on multiple occasions having to slow/ stop and correct to find the flag. To 2 too far N, to 3 too far N inc extra stream crossing, to 4 too far E additional climb and drop, to 6 too far N additional climb and then still got to S of the line. Left 6 in not quite the right direction so banana. All of this probably adds up to 5 mins lost. The going got easier and 7 to 15 went well. Then a huge horlicks. (knowingly?) too far on long diagonal leg but did not correct by using one of the forest roads that were crossed, so ended in a parallel block of green. After relocation seriously overshot so probably another 5 mins? A bit disappointed I let this happen but picked up and ran the rest to 28 quite well if not particularly fast.
Could have done better -tired afterwards

Saturday Jan 14 #

orienteering race 59:32 [5] 6.1 km (9:46 / km)

NGOC Event at Cranham and Coopers hill. The introduction of the later makes the area much more interesting as the former had been well used.
Banana (and quite an over ripe one at that) to no 1, offline at 3 and stopped short at 17 -otherwise ok. A pleasure to run in nice woods with a cleat map and well chosen legs and sites. A bit disappointed by weakness on hills both and down. Dobs hurt my left foot but for me essential on this type of proper forest terrain may not help overall pace
1 AM

road run 12:00 [2] 0.5 mi (23:59 / mi)

Warm up etc

Friday Jan 13 #

off road 1:09:09 [3] 6.0 mi (11:32 / mi)

From Priory at Portbury. Sunny afternoon but with a nippy wind and very occasional patches remnant from this mornings snow. Started again with four layers and had to stop to take off a couple. (Time decremented). Suspected time would be longer (it seems quite along 6) so quite pleased

Thursday Jan 12 #

off road 1:07:07 [3] 6.0 mi (11:11 / mi)

Purdown standard run twice through the wood -forecast seem to be driving snow so ran early to avoid but dressed more appropriate to a blizard. Of course it did not snow just damp so very over dressed. This may have contributed to what was seemed a real plod
