Orienteering race 1:07:22 [4] 9.73 km (6:55 / km) +334m 5:55 / km
shoes: Innov8 MudClaw 300 2019

NGOC Huntley, wow a real proper no COVID O event!

brown 7.7km, 270m (!), very nice, felt fit but not terrain fit, 2 errors really ( no 13 - 2 mins - just couldnt' understand the vegetation, nor coudl Alistair), & no 19 (unmarked cycle track meant I lost contact & reloacted past the control - 1min?). hilly! got lucky at no 10. no 16 I was equal 1st with.... Owain.

Adam 55, Ben M 56, Alistair L. 62, me 5th?

Another quick trad avon route bagged - a repeat of the three star Central Buttress, E1 5a, with Robyn again.

A bit faffy but all good. I'm in the zone, I have to climb . need to push the boat out on harder / routes i've not yet done..... before i leave forever.

Climbing (Trad) 45:00 [2]

Trad climb in Avon Gorge, the historic & classic HVS, "Malbogies", finally I lead the lot. My first proper "Hard Rock" tick. First climbed in 1957 by a very young, unbearded & not yet famous Sir Christian Bonington. https://www.ukclimbing.com/logbook/crags/avon_gorg...

With Robyn, a hong kong unemployed lawyer who climbs a lot harder than me but doesnt' lead trad.

Very happy, esp as it rained on pitch 2. Had intended to do another route, same level (5a), but rain & sudden cold stopped play at 4:30pm. Home.

Need a rest , as quite a bad night last night - as usual, following road TTs.

Running 22:10 [2] 4.2 km (5:17 / km) +10m 5:13 / km
shoes: adizero adios 4

12 PM

Running race (Time trial) 18:50 [5] 5.01 km (3:46 / km) +6m 3:44 / km
shoes: adizero adios 4

5km time trial, 18:45-18:46 according to Strava

Climbing cancelled (by both of us - winter is back!) so quick chg of plan, felt frisky, so time to attack the BAD TRi 5km TT segment in the Portway.

All went v well, 3:44 at 1km, then a slight NW head-breeze plus a short rise (4m!), so only 3:53 for km 2.

Turn then immediately accelerated, km 4 in 3:41, then starting to suffer but the end was literally in sight, quick sprint and got the 18:45 with another 3:41 km.

Staggered back to car, but a few hours later, all good. Have felt very well since the COVID vaccine, possibly lending credence to the theory that I caught C19 in greece in Nov 2019.

Now entered a half marathon, may as well, I'm clearly on form on the roads. Fastest 5km since about 2017 but in 2016 I did 17:38 and also two back to back 18:22's en route to 36:44 at Clevedon 10km, so let's keep the hats on shall we.

Segment record holder - BOK's Owain Jones , 15:25. O.......... K.......... my segment time a pedestrian 18:36. (Beth Potter, of course, ran 14:41 last week on a racecourse, UK record / WR? )
