Orienteering - race 54:25 [3] 4.2 mi (12:57 / mi)

SOL Blue Pentlands

Had to get this over with quickly as - like yesterday - I had a family event to get to. The first 4 controls were fairly straightforward, then the long slogs started. I went straight to 6, mainly as I couldn't really be bothered thinking of any thing else. I think Sarah, who went left, did a better route as she spent more time on paths. Had Andy Simpson with me so that was a good way of keeping me going.

Enjoyed the ping ponging around the forest at the end, and the course was much more fun than my low expectations thought it would be. Knees sore on any descent, and anything too tussocky. Overall not 100% fresh, and not feeling good physically but glad to grind it out.

Orienteering - race 27:21 [3] 2.83 mi (9:40 / mi)

VHI relays - Binning Wood

Bumbled around really. First time out since the 6 day, and haven’t run recently due to knee pain, i felt v rusty. But it was a nice sunny day, and I didn’t drop places, and would have been hard pushed to gain places, so it’s all good.

Trail running 52:38 [3] 4.8 mi (10:58 / mi)

Crags, St Margaret’s Loch, Whinny Hill, summit of AS, and home via Pipers. Boiling. I had to take my t-shirt off. I rarely go to the summit and it is frustratingly chossy, but had to today to get the views. Then realised I was going to miss my dentist appointment and pegged it home.

L knee sore, r Achilles sore.
