Knackered. From gardening.
Orienteering race 41:00  5.7 km (7:12 / km)
Scottish Relay Champs, Binning Wood.
Stupid relay, stupid course names, stupid wood, stupid me for going out like a hare with a rocket up its backside, stupid, stupid, stupid.
Best part of the day? Gardening when I got home.
Orienteering race 1:03:31  11.05 km (5:45 / km) +65m 5:35 / km
SOA Championships - Gullane Dunes and Archerfield.
Not sure how I'd hold up for this, probably not helped by heading for the wrong start and having to run sub-5 to get to my start!
Well, at least I was proper warmed up and I went out hard. Some very minor wobbles on the first few - first control behind a tree, a bit too fast into 3, hidden 4, slightly right at 5 but then I was off. Didn't enjoy the cross country run along the beaches round to the map turnover and didn't enjoy that the orienteering was a bit noddy and most "tricky" controls were close to big features. You had to run hard and stay very tidy. I knew to use trods and tracks as much as possible and I was really wilting on the last loop against the grain. Glad for it to be over. After 15k of running my left calf promptly gave in when I tried to jog warm down back. It'll be right for tomorrow tho.... I hope.... wine helps.....
Results - Who the F@+@ knows! Still waiting to find out how I did (at 9pm at night).
Still sapped. No idea what's wrong but not running is right, for now.
Double Pro-Plus required for tomorrow.
Feeling decidedly rotten as the day went on, low on energy, glands up but nothing much to show for it. Chose to miss the Kinnoull Hill race :-(
Run 20:00 
FVO WEE at Stirling Uni. Not feeling 100% so found plenty of excuses not to run despite entering. Great to see Matthew holding it together round a long yellow course - and a happy Hannah wandering in the woods with Granddad.
