Orienteering 35:00  5.0 km (7:00 / km)
o-intervals with the Russians. Very stop start as someone was always faffing.
Trying to run too fast
Orienteering 53:30  8.0 km (6:41 / km)
Relay training. Decided to go against my usual grain and try front running. After all, what is training for?
Was going quite well til I got ahead of myself on the way to 8, got confused and then assumed I was totally lost and had a massive issue relocating. Proof that I cant orienteer as fast as I can run.
Ok after that. Goo dufn.
Cycled 35 minute to and 28 from the clubhouse in minging sleet. Fukcing Sweden, when is spring coming!?
Running 50:13  6.81 km (7:23 / km) +54m 7:06 / km
Easy pace O from OK Hellas clubhouse/Russian Mafia HQ. Enjoyed it, and in good control on the whole.
Scared the shit out of Dima shouting "Hoi!" in the forest to him, and also scared the shit out of a MASSIVE moose. Forgot how big they are. They are BIG.
Running 15:00  2.0 km (7:30 / km) +16m 7:13 / km
Jog to start
Orienteering 1:20:48  12.97 km (6:14 / km) +222m 5:44 / km
Well that was a bit better. Long distance on same area.
Took 1 very very steady, fine, and was halfway to 2 when a tree rudely ripped my dibber off. About 1.40 spent searching for it. Bugger. Was surprisingly calm about it and picked up 2 fine.
Was much more stable today, had a plan for every leg, tried to run straight on the whole (not always the best tbf) but executed most legs well. Hesitant on 5 but just being safe. Took the small path option on the big leg (15) and this seemed a strong option.
Pace control and compass MUCH better today, whenever I wasn't 100% I took a moment or two to make certain. Much happier with today even before I saw the results.
Surprised to run the fastest time - Not as surprised as everyone else in the club after yesterdays result!
Running 14:38  1.65 mi (8:52 / mi) +37m 8:18 / mi
Decent warm up for once
Running 1:55  0.21 mi (9:08 / mi)
Orienteering 43:13  6.05 km (7:09 / km) +129m 6:27 / km
Local event at Haninge - area used for SM Lang 2015.
Middle race. Hmm. Sometimes you have to take a step back to step forwards. This was a pretty solid step back...
Started nice and steady, first two were fine. Then made a big parallel error (2 mins), followed by sloppy compass (2 mins) and a bit of a head loss losing a minute at 5 and 7 when I was well on course. The next two legs requiring decent compass were wayward despite checking the bastard very regularly.
Confidence destroyed I loped in. Long race tomorrow, must do better. Not looking around enough, head needs to come up sooner, and hold the line better. A real disappointment when I wasn't even trying to race or run fast, but brain just wasn't there today. Tomorrow we will see if I learnt anything.
And to add insult, Carl broke my TWA record by 2 minutes. Twat!
Running 39:50  4.84 km (8:13 / km) +103m 7:26 / km
Was annoyed with myself about this morning, so went for a very easy line course jog to re-align my brain
Running 23:20  2.78 mi (8:24 / mi) +61m 7:51 / mi
Jog to the SHOPS in Farsta
Running 48:06  6.27 mi (7:40 / mi) +187m 7:01 / mi

Someone died at Loughrigg fell race last night :( waiting to hear who it was...
Running 39:54  4.05 mi (9:51 / mi) +76m 9:19 / mi
More v easy trotting with the Chasers Thursday run. Some nice bits of forest. Calf not great.
