Feel like a broken person.
Very tired and hobbling around. No motivation even to do some physio

Orienteering 44:00 [5] 7.5 km (5:52 / km)

SHI Relay.
Had no plans of running this and was hobbling around watching. Had said I would only put on kit if another team mp'ed, and when Dan managed first leg cleanly I thought no need for me, relaxed and had my lunch. Then about 30mims later. Doug arrived simultaneously at the finish (as a mp) as Jamie came through the spectator on second leg as now first placed Scottish team with our other Scottish team not in sight and a good few English teams around. Oh no - now I had to run. Then in the next 15mins the mixture of adreniline/paracetomol/ibprofen got me to the start line in kit.
Then for the next 44mins I just gritted my teeth and tried to run. Pain was bearable in the terrain where it was soft and I could heel strike, on the paths and running fast on the ball of my foot was not great.
Chasing gg for a third of the course was great to get into it and give something to think about other than sore stuff. Then he missed and I just tried to keep going. When he caught me again i just had no extra gear, disappointing, but just enough to let the team retain their title.
Much happier that I actually read the map and was running at a speed I could navigate today.
Doug owes me a pint and I owe Dan some more respect (history should have taught me Doug was the real liability :P}

Run (warm up) 20:00 [1] 3.0 km (6:40 / km)

12 PM

Orienteering 1:30:00 [5] 15.0 km (6:00 / km)

SHI individual
Felt tired and couldn't concentrate. Because I felt tired I tried to push the running the whole way, didn't trust I was moving fast enough and just didn't navigate or give the terrain the respect it deserved. The consequence of this was a huge number of massive mistakes, and a grumpy me.
Then with a km to go I booted a tree stump I didn't see with the big toe on my left foot really hard and was in a ball on the ground holding it for a good few minutes. It hurt just as much as when I broke my arm orienteering so I was very happy to be looked after by some very kind Irish and Welsh guys nearby who made sure I got back to the assembly safely. Thank you!
Then I went to AE and got an x-ray and was told it wasn't broken - so will be hobbling about for a few days but nothing more serious.
Bit of a sh*t day all in all.
(Silver lining was that Scotland won the individual!)
