off road 52:54 [3] 5.0 mi (10:35 / mi)

Purdown, shorter route but still 3 hills. Cold, sharp day, feeling a bit better but still decided to limit running. Not strong on hills but that's what the training's about
2 AM

road run 10:00 [2] 0.5 mi (20:00 / mi)

Warm up
3 AM

orienteering race (Night) 1:03:03 [4] 5.0 km (12:37 / km)

Went to the WNL at Coopers Hill, a great place for Night O on a clear cold evening a bit on impulse to check out new light (very similar to old) and remember how difficult night O can be. Achieve both these aims but (absence of?) choice of controls poor and some navigation (absence of?) e,g, going to 13 was disappointing. So did not score many points and then not finding the finish contributed to me losing them! Did enjoy being out there

off road 1:09:15 [3] 6.0 mi (11:33 / mi)

Purdown, which has returned to its true greasy self. A bit slower, I do think I still have effects of bug, guts gradually returning to normal and no longer affecting running, and weak on hills. New trail shoes are no match for mudclaws on this stuff! Did have to "crack on" in last mile to get under 70 mins. A bit damp

orienteering race 1:24:24 [4] 8.4 km (10:03 / km)

BAOC Event at Alice Holt, wood although green was much nicer than expected and it was definitely worth a visit. It was nice to visit a new (to me) area, and I liked the feel of being in a forest. Although there were plenty of paths the course kept you thinking, and there was plenty of choice I found it trickier on the ground than I expected and the vegetation was often not what I had envisaged. No 1 was close and I chose a path route (pre-race tactic) to 2, my head was not in the orienteering and I did not see the tracks, and really just bumbled in the right sort of direction. Some text obscuring the map ooadded to my confusion. (-3mins). Realising the forest was really not to bad ran straight for the next few and got much more into it. I did have trouble at 12, could not really understand the vegetation and searched in some unmarked dry ditches (-2mins), no 14 which I approached from a path junction to the south was further right. (-90secs). Feeling a bit weary towards the end, don't think I am yet quite recovered and time is quite slow, needed to be a bit more aggressive with forest running but was more of a feeble lamb today.
1 AM

off road 1:02:33 [3] 5.5 mi (11:22 / mi)

Ashton court loop warn and dry but would stretch it to say sunny. Not well yet and still feeling weak and feeble and struggling with digestion but better than yesterday. Hoping to be more back to usual tomorrow

Still not well and wet day so took map and pottered around Emerson Green streets. Very little energy and digestive system could be better....

off road 2:30:00 [2] 12.0 mi (12:30 / mi)

CW from KIng Billy to Ebley Mill with Dave and Celia, really run/walk. Probably LSD was the only session I could gave managed. Had taken ages to find slot in diaries so did not want to cancel. Not sure if it was a good idea
Nice autumn day, nice varied section, great views. Will go again sometime
