Orienteering race 47:38 [3] 6.88 km (6:55 / km) +253m 5:51 / km
(injured) shoes: VJ Integrators

Back flare - 6 or 7/10, v painful getting up. No rehab yesterday - hmmmm. I can't be lazy about this!?!?!

NGOC galoppen Blakeney hill, cold. Did Blue 5.7k / 220, as i have more excuses than you can throw a shitty stick at. 47:38 / 1st.

Nice area, nice time of year, visibility good. no 2 was a huge slog, leaving me puffed out & glad not to be on Brown!

error on no 8 which will be voided anyway, as the code was wrong (this affected Brown as well); I overshot & was distracted anyway by the reams of middle aged blokes (with type 2 diabetes .... hang on ... that's me) having committee meetings about whether the code was wrong. Scott showed up (on Brown) & we didnt' mess about - punched it & moved on.

Aware of my ghastly hernia for some of the race - maybe cos i talked about it beforehand. (even getting it out - nice).

Last 5 controls an utter joy - running freely through clear woods on rough compass & nailing the lot. well inside my target "winning" time of 50 mins as a result.

Warmdown 13 mins with map, as feeling a little guilty at my shameless domination of the Blue when older gits like Clive still go out on Brown & get hammered by - in particular - an unstoppable Pete Ward. But my back was complaining the WHOLE time....

the Blue course was apparently the nicest of the day, and i have to say, it was a lovely course!


12 PM

Orienteering 13:00 [2] 1.94 km (6:42 / km) +35m 6:09 / km
(injured) shoes: VJ Integrators

WD with map, looking at "features" and not remotely looking at anything human. Back not happy. However, I was.
