Sunday Oct 4 #

Orienteering race 41:02 [4] 5.5 km (7:28 / km) +385m 5:32 / km

A local or regional race (700 entries!) at Kozlov in the sandstones.
Pretty good race and some nice scalps but they can't have been trying very hard.
Need to pay attention to top of crag descriptions. The planner today seemed to like putting controls on unbelievably tall rocks. Got caught out once and dropped a minute.

Run warm up/down 15:00 [3] 3.0 km (5:00 / km)

Saturday Oct 3 #

Orienteering 28:00 [3] 3.0 km (9:20 / km) +100m 8:00 / km

A short slopes training. Too tired for anything else.

Friday Oct 2 #

Orienteering 1:07:05 [3] 8.9 km (7:32 / km) +328m 6:22 / km

Longer legs at Malinik.
Forests in this part are just like FoD areas but with more boulders so the orienteering is nothing special.
Nice Sunny day today.

Run 27:12 [2] 5.2 km (5:14 / km) +40m 5:02 / km

Around the local lake in Jablonec nad Nisou

Thursday Oct 1 #

Orienteering 1:14:00 [2] 7.9 km (9:22 / km) +220m 8:13 / km

Bramberk. Pootling around. Sketchy mapping.

Wednesday Sep 30 #

Orienteering 54:00 [2] 4.4 km (12:16 / km) +120m 10:48 / km

Drábovna 1:3000 course around all the rock tunnels.
100% best area we’ve visited in the Sandstones.

Orienteering 47:07 [2] 5.3 km (8:53 / km) +240m 7:15 / km

More two handed orienteering. Found a classic dead end corridor in the rocks

Tuesday Sep 29 #

Run 4:00 [3] 0.7 km (5:43 / km)

12 PM

Orienteering 47:53 [3] 6.72 km (7:08 / km) +236m 6:04 / km

Ran a recent middle race on Karolina.
Pretty good overall but put too much trust into the veg mapping. Really nice runnable pine in the flat areas. More enjoyable that the other areas around Doksy as the map isn’t just endless steep valleys
5 PM

Orienteering 1:23:00 [2] 8.61 km (9:38 / km) +327m 8:06 / km

Final run up to Valdštejn for a Control pick on the parts we hadn’t been to. Plenty of slogging up the cliffs.
Absolutely nailed the downhill at the end. Nice sunset

Monday Sep 28 #

9 AM

Orienteering 30:49 [3] 4.9 km (6:17 / km) +170m 5:22 / km

Unintended pre breakfast up the hill to Hrad Valdstejn with the aibnb host Vit (who happened to be an orienteer)
12 PM

Orienteering 44:40 [3] 4.1 km (10:54 / km) +154m 9:10 / km

Control picking on what seemed to be the most technical bit of Supi Hora. Not as interesting as the areas around Turnov but still quite fun. Some recent felling was annoying. Czech has the bark beetle problem.. :(
2 PM

Orienteering 34:23 [3] 3.13 km (10:59 / km) +161m 8:44 / km

Short course at Barbora on the way back. Good little map but feeling pretty tired. My fault for running before breakfast.
