Porto City Race 2013. Hot, great fun, lots of steps, lots of tricky sections! Great park section at the end with lots of sections and closed gates, had me fooled.

Orienteering race 53:13 [4] *** 5.8 km (9:11 / km) +170m 8:00 / km
24c shoes: Brooks Adrenaline GTS 11 AW11

Justlog Park Race, on a wood-covered hilltop overlooking Porto. A very different feel to a UK race. The first half was through quite green woodlands, I mainly stuck to the paths to avoid the vicious looking vegetation. The section was a section of intense control picking, on a steep but open woodland right by the finish. Good flow was key here. Really enjoyed it - even the uphill finish. Later, had a go on the Trail-O which was in the same area.

Score Orienteering race (Street-O) 52:18 [3] ** 9.78 km (5:21 / km)
slept:7.0 (injured) shoes: Nike Lunar +2s

Street-O in Greenwich/Blackheath. Plan was to climb at the beginning and then basically stay high, enjoy running around Greenwich Park and Blackheath, and then drop down and around Greenwich Maritime back to the start. Gait felt a bit awkward, put that down to tiredness and stuck to the grass more than tarmac. Views from Greenwich Park over to the Isle of Dogs were fantastic and it was a pleasure running around. Unfortunately after I had cleared Blackheath and dropped down, shin splints started to appear. Quite quickly decided to jack in the race, to maximise chances of recovery for Porto at the weekend. Had a long walk back from the Lewisham border to Maze Hill, through the bottom of Greenwich Park, so got back nine minutes late and missed a lot of high-scoring controls near the end of my planned route.

Nice pub though and good map.

Looking back at my AP injury log, they generally take a couple of weeks to clear up, however i think they are very minor this time (didn't feel them walking to lunch the day after) so maybe I'll be OK for Saturday - we'll see.

And note to self - do not do road running two days in a row. Ever.
