5 AM

Core stability 20:00 [2]
shoes: Salomon Speedtrax black/yellow

Pretty lame PT session since we had other places to be so our group only got through 6 of 16 stations (exactly 4.5mins) before we got called away. Even the brief to go through all the stations took longer than that!

7 AM

Running race 8:16 [5] 2.2 km (3:45 / km)
(sick) shoes: Salomon Speedtrax black/yellow

BFA run. Would like to say this is a new PB despite being sick but the course was short. Still good though and better than I was expecting. About ten(?) people in front and another 70-80 behind.

10 AM

Mountain bike 1:16:58 [1] 13.48 km (10.5 kph)
(sick) shoes: Giant XTC Advanced SL 29er

Checking CP locations with Tash around the Southernwood map, just to make sure she knew where they all went (there are a few tricky locations). Looks like some of the long grass has been mowed. Hopefully will be done again before the event, not that there's a great deal of it - certainly nothing like yesterday's event.

Didn't even attempt to make it to parkrun this morning.
1 PM

Mountain bike 1:51:27 [1] 13.59 km (7.3 kph) +60m
shoes: Giant XTC Advanced SL 29er

Putting out controls for today's event at Woodbridge (which in some circles is referred to as Viveash although I never once called it that in any communications so dunno how it got that name). Felt sorry for CP 27 as it was going to be a difficult one to find if coming from the wrong (i.e. any) direction so wrapped a couple of pink tapes around the trees and hoped that'd be enough. I'd put it at the end of a 'ride' but when hanging the control, realised that all the trees there were planted in rows, just that this particular ride that I'd mapped was a tiny bit wider than the others. Oh well. The grass seeds were more than enough for people to worry about anyway.

As per usual the areas of open versus rough open depended on where they mowed during the week. At least the indistinct trails were still there (somewhat)!
6 PM

Mountain bike 26:30 [1] 4.91 km (11.1 kph) +2m
shoes: Giant XTC Advanced SL 29er

I collected the last lot of controls around the rough open and swamp areas because even though I had a couple of people volunteer, I decided to go easy on them rather than send them back out into the grass seed hell and I could tackle the area much easier on my bike. Rob B picked up one of them on the way back from his lot anyway so I wasted my time doing the big out and back for that one (he didn't have the particular key for the others otherwise they may have gone missing too).

Unfortunately I didn't get my entry in for the 'bring a friend' competition since none of my family turned up. Turns out we are all sick.

It was nice of the cat to share my pain today and throw up all over the floor for me to clean up. Meant a lot of dry retching (by me). Fortunately didn't get any worse than that, yet. Still feel bloody awful though, as bad or worse than any other day so far this week.
4 PM

Mountain bike 1:40:31 [1] 13.5 km (8.1 kph)
shoes: Giant XTC Advanced SL 29er

Had to do something about checking CP locations for the Southernwood event in Jan that I won't be here for so even though I felt like rubbish, I rolled the bike around. Shame I'm not here to run it on the day because I think I've outdone myself with tRicky locations and real route choice between controls! This is despite a river cutting the map in half although there are four crossing points (including the log with a handrail) - five if you count the pipe that everyone would probably fall off (I haven't mapped it for that very reason). Would like to hear comments afterwards.
