1st leg relay training. I.e Mass start trains. In a really nice bit of forest that was different to the dunes. Needed to trust your compass a lot which I didn't on the first loop. Got better navigationally but died pretty quickly and was getting dropped fairly hard.

100 controls, 16km course on Guardamar (again.) Bonked hard midway but picked up a bit towards the end. Plenty of mistakes but nothing more than about a minute. Quite epic.

11 AM

Running warm up/down 10:31 [2] 1.86 km (5:39 / km)
shoes: Inov8 X-Talons 212s

Accom out to the start. Decided to go down the path which was actually a line of sand. Nearly got lost finding it.

Orienteering 1:19:23 [3] 11.49 km (6:55 / km)
shoes: Inov8 X-Talons 212s

10.9km star course on Guardamar south. 4 loops that all came back to the start. Just ran them all consecutively. 1 monumental miss when I stopped to early thinking I'd found 9 and then thought I'd found 10 as well only when I was exiting that one I realised that I hadn't been to 9. Started to almost do a talk o with myself in my head and actually worked really well and nearly no misses afterwards. Only misses when I lost concentration doing that and reverted to my normal technique of seeing a feature and then looking at the map to work out what it was. Dying a bit at the end with a lack of water. So sunny today.

Running warm up/down 12:25 [2] 2.25 km (5:31 / km)
shoes: Inov8 X-Talons 212s

Ran back through the terrain as it was faster than the 'path'.
5 PM

Running warm up/down 4:12 [2] 0.85 km (4:56 / km)
shoes: Inov8 X-Talons 212s

Up.

Orienteering 47:59 [3] 7.97 km (6:01 / km)
shoes: Inov8 X-Talons 212s

Got this year's maps now. Another middle around Guardamar. Took this one a bit harder and after the first 3 I got into it and everything started to flow better. 1 other miss where I stopped a ridge too early and turn round to relocate.

Running warm up/down 8:06 [2] 1.55 km (5:14 / km)
shoes: Inov8 X-Talons 212s

Extended warm down.

Monday Feb 20 #

Running warm up/down 6:56 [2] 1.35 km (5:08 / km)
shoes: Inov8 X-Talons 212s

Up and down between the area and the accommodation.

Orienteering 45:05 [3] 7.44 km (6:04 / km)
shoes: Inov8 X-Talons 212s

Cruise around a middle course from last year's map package. Our maps haven't turned up yet so borrowed some left over ones from last year. The forest is so so nice. Pretty clean except for one control where I stopped too early and with no flags ran off and hen realised I was in the wrong place so went back and found the actual control. Also in retrospect I never made it to 24. Did think it looked a bit funny and how 25 arrived super fast.

11 AM

Running warm up/down 8:40 [2] 1.6 km (5:25 / km)
shoes: Inov8 X-Talons 212s

Up.

Running race 17:56 [4] 3.79 km (4:44 / km)
shoes: Inov8 X-Talons 212s

Part 1. A weird sprint with most of it being in a forest. So runnable to the point that running as straight as you could was best on 70% of the legs. Bananad a few which probably lost me half a minute.
1 PM

Running warm up/down 14:20 [2] 2.65 km (5:25 / km)
shoes: Inov8 X-Talons 212s

Up and down.

Orienteering race 15:42 [4] 3.77 km (4:10 / km)
shoes: Inov8 X-Talons 212s

Part 2. Mostly urban this time with a little bit in a quarry. Good run but not too hard as it was just straight as possible on all of them again and just don't get confused as to which alley you're in. Running 30 seconds slower than the fastest guys.

Saturday Feb 18 #

1 PM

Orienteering 42:06 [3] 6.12 km (6:53 / km)
shoes: Inov8 X-Talons 212s

On my favourite moor in the world, Moor of Alvie. Slow round a great course planned by Trim.
7 PM

Running warm up/down 20:00 [2] 3.56 km (5:37 / km)
shoes: Inov8 X-Talons 212s

Up and down.

Orienteering race 1:10:37 [4] 8.96 km (7:53 / km)
shoes: Inov8 X-Talons 212s

Awful. Was going okay ish until 10 and then completely blew 6 minutes on 11 and then my head was never in it and proceeded to lose large amounts of time and just get angry at things such as the unnecessary need to put controls in the grotty open bit when there was plenty of runnable woodlands to put more controls in.
