Sunday Jan 28 #

11 AM

Running 2:30:08 [2] 20.28 km (7:24 / km) +688m 6:20 / km
ahr:124 max:156 shoes: inov8 X-TALON 212 Black/Yellow

Long Wye Valley Loop with Richard C. Very muddy the majority of the route which meant pace was slow. Knee which I bashed yesterday hurt to begin with but soon settled down.

Started at Poor's Allotment, ran down to Chepstow following the Offa's Dyke Path, crossed the bridge then up the other side of the river on the Wye Valley Walk. This meant we could recce the Chepstow night Rogue Runs course in a few weeks time which will be sketchy to say the least. Carrying on up 365 steps to Eagle's Nest and Down to Tintern. Crossed the bridge then up to the Devils Pulpit and back. Nice to run in a new place for once.

Thanks to a withdrawal I've just found out I've been selected for inter counties XC on 10th March...I only turned up to the other race as I had nothing better to do. Now I may need to invest in some spikes.

max:176 spiked:27/30c shoes: inov8 X-TALON 212 Black/Yellow

NGOC WNL at Crickley Hill

Small area so odds and evens but no change over control.

Plan was good, orienteering was fairly good but staying on feet did not go very well. Stacked it twice in quick succession, both times soaking the map in mud. This meant a lot of time spent wiping map so it was at legible. End result was that I missed 225 not having enough time to hunt for it in the mist after not noticing it from above.

Orienteering race (Bromsgrove) 1:02:06 [3] ** 12.8 km (4:51 / km) +139m 4:36 / km
ahr:154 max:177 shoes: Mizuno Wave Rider 20

Another day, another Street o, this one in Bromsgrove organised by HOC.

No chance in getting them all but I realised I had bitten of more than I could chew as I was too far away when I turned for home finishing 126s late.

Planner had decided to make the map by copying the course from OpenOrienteering map into paint to add unmapped paths rather than altering OSM which meant the resolution was poor.

Wednesday Jan 24 #

7 AM

Running 1:02:05 [2] 11.75 km (5:17 / km) +99m 5:04 / km
ahr:132 max:146 shoes: Mizuno Wave Rider 20

Firstly had planned to go swimming but accidentally turned my alarm off and went back to sleep for a bit.
Then had planned to do a tempo session on the canal tow path but the aylesbury council footpath maintenance team had other plans and had blocked off a new section so resorted to two laps of my boring loop as didn't want to venture onto muddy fields without any trail shoes.

7 PM

Running warm up/down 10:44 [2] 1.5 km (7:09 / km) +2m 7:06 / km
ahr:143 max:157 shoes: Mizuno Wave Rider 20

WU and drills

Orienteering race (Thame) 1:00:46 [3] ** 13.2 km (4:36 / km) +60m 4:30 / km
ahr:154 max:174 shoes: Mizuno Wave Rider 20

Was it luck or coincidence that my weekly trip to Aylesbury coincided with a TVOC street o?

Informal start and finish in pub, aim was to clear them all. Poor route choice to get 31 (around 310m extra) and time wasted deciphering clue at 13 (around 100s) meant I knew I couldn't get them all so just made sure I got all the 30s. Good fun
