Orienteering race (Dudmanston) 54:14 [3] *** 8.6 km (6:18 / km) +243m 5:32 / km
ahr:157 max:182 spiked:20/25c shoes: inov8 MUDCLAW 300

HOC Level C at Dudmanston - Brown 7.7km


Thought the area was bigger and better than what it turned out to be. Area was a standard HOC area with plenty of brambles so stuck to paths whenever I could.

This wasn't a good promotion for a HOC event. Starting off with the map the green blobs around 14 were not accurate, missing green south of 19, purple hashing on way to 20 meant wasn't sure if allowed to run on footpath - I concluded yes, 20 should be marked as a rootstock not a depression. On the control descriptions 7 was marked as knoll NE end (?!!) and was actually on fence corner. Course was also planned with a valid route straight through the start which shouldn't happen.

Time losses (3:35):
#6 15s hesitation as too low
#7 20s hesitation. too much detail in the circle
#13 30s Was bang on line but drifted left at last minute
#14 70s - got pushed right by green and failed to adjust. Looking at it now I also don't think it is mapped right with it being further north than is mapped.
#20 80s Firstly had to fight through unmapped green on the exit of 19 then attacked far too early. Also hesitated to run to the rootstock when the control was in a depression.
7 PM

Cycling (Indoor) 45:00 [2]

Didn't think I had earned my dinner, so to speak, so went for an easy spin. May ask for a turbo for xmas as it would be more fun.

Orienteering race (Knockalls) 42:40 [3] *** 6.1 km (7:00 / km) +256m 5:47 / km
ahr:154 max:181 spiked:15/19c shoes: inov8 Arctic Claw 300

NGOC League at Knockalls - Blue 5.3km


Plan was to go swimming before this but a flat tyre ruined that plan. Glad i was up early so i could sort it out before i had to leave for oing.

Felt this course didn't make the best use out of the area. Did well in the control pick at the start. Stupid mistake on 8, got back on track until and even more stupid mistake at 15.

Still don't know what knee problem is. Its not ligament and barely hurt at all today on the soft ground so I don't think its that serious. Will run tomorrow.

Time losses (3:18):
#3 15s Lost confidence but was fine
#8 95s Attacked at the right point but ran to where i guessed ti would be rather than taking a bearing
#14 5s hidden at the foot of the crag
#15 75s thought the orange course point was on a different set of boulders so was navigating off that and ended up too far south
#19 8s Slightly off line
