Spinning - St.Albans 2013, MSV course - mixed bag, some good long RC legs and some super Sprint legs - in the school and in the Town Centre, but alot of medium length legs that could have offered difficulty, but where the planner just gave it away! Still, overall, a pleasing experience :)
Spinning - SEOUL 2013 - Salisbury. A good "race", although it perplexes me when you can have 3 controls described as "Under the Canopy", which is all well and good....but - they are all mapped as Tunnels, and Not, Canopies! Other than that, the technically unallowed tree on an island mapped with a surrounding black line as "not to be crossed" was quite amusing! :) Nice map though - looking at the graphics another Mike Hampton effort - can't tell for sure as the credits are blotted out under the control descriptions :(
Urban Orienteering 1:03:44  5.53 km (11:32 / km) +2m 11:31 / km
Walk around the MUV course - it's quite difficult to maintain concentration while walking, your mind tends to wander a bit!
Forgot to start watch so "started" as I passed control 14 on route to control 2 - first few minutes just video then RGTV kicks-in. Also speeded up to x2 as only walking otherwise it would have been a bit too long and tedious!
Spinning - 2 x LOG events - Mike Hampton map of todays Bourne event - MSV course, and Caroline Louth map of Stamford, again MSV - liking both maps for the drawing and printing quality - nice! :)
Spinning 37:26 
Spinning - York City Race - 2013 / 2014 and 2015
Spinning 38:54 
Spinning - York City Race - 2010, 2011 and 2012
Spinning 44:12 
Spinning - 50% Canterbury and 50% Castle Vale - both from 2012. Just shows what a bad job you can make of otherwise good (Canterbury) or excellent (Castle Vale) areas! Poor planning in general, ok, a few good legs, but far too, far and far between. Much dead running, even in CV where planning didn't play to the superb character of the area....at all! Hope CV is better in 2017!
Cheeky 10 minute warm-down spin - Kings Hedges, North Cambridge - now that's better!
