orienteering race 1:10:29 [5] 7.8 km (9:02 / km)

Long race at Las Minas M50 31/87 winner 45.55. Proper classic with log legs -took path options on 1-2 and 4-5 (a bit disappointed at the speed I managed). Was ok on the difficult 6-7 long one with tricky control but did lose 3 mins in the twiddles at 9

Bullas -sprint race M50 33/58 winner 12.39. Fairly straight forward but again struggled with speed (breathing). Got a bit confused mid route 6-7 (concentration) and went to 8 instead of 7 but not a huge time loss and took wrong turning going uphill to 9. Lost over a minute in total most will have been clean

orienteering race 18:06 [5] 2.6 km (6:58 / km)

Park race at Fuentes del Marques - ran through a tunnel, control 2 was odd, water features and horrendous green to run around -quite fun and no disasters but losing time as could not run fast enough -breathing was a bit poor

Thursday Feb 21 #

orienteering 2:00:00 [3] 7.0 km (17:09 / km)

'O' Training at El Pizcalejo - fierce gorge through middle of map which course crossed 5 times! First crossing 2-3 I did find a way down a spur but only way I could get up was off to the right which took me off the map to an area which resembled the moon I managed to cling on to the crags long enough to reach an orchard and relocate -how odd is that... only in Spain, Did course in a different order which took out two crossings -really enjoyed the rest but took 2 hours and was exhausted at the finish

Wednesday Feb 20 #

orienteering 1:30:00 [3] 9.0 km (10:00 / km)

Training at Canada de Canera -really nice area (been here before) -stopped short at 2 and lost time because nor read map carefully enough -rest went well and enjoyable but surprisingly quite slow. Includes long run too and from start/ finish

Tuesday Feb 19 #

orienteering 3:00:00 [3] 9.0 km (20:00 / km)

Orienteering training at Sierra del Molino (trained here before but map extended).
First exercise set by Mark control picking - about 4 km had to find tapes to bring them back! lost time on two but still surprised took nearly 90 mins.
Drink and then ran straight out on training did about 5km but missed out some of the fierce mountain legs. Quite hot and dehydrated.
Good days technical training

Orienteering training -LLano de Arriba -classic had been here before -great area - did not get maps till very late in the day so had to truncate course -pleased with compass accuracy in the green
