orienteering race (Night) 1:02:00 [4] 4.5 km (13:47 / km)

Nice night and good venue (Minchinhampton) for Night 'O' , alas performed as though I had never been out at night before. Found a few and then got stuck in a spikey bush at the boggy bog, could not find the next one, the pesky pit by the big hill, nor the next as the control was actually inside the thicket....oh well 30 mns got. Picked up a couple more and then had to charge back so some running training. Despite all it was fun and enjoyed the evening run

Friday Nov 15 #

off road 1:20:00 [3] 7.0 mi (11:26 / mi)

Run with Mark and Alice up to Twmbalwm but not to top rather to forest road and then along to end of ridge and back over the top. Really enjoyed route and delighted to see Alice back in action, seemingly with no after effects -Hurray!

Thursday Nov 14 #


In need of a rest day and particularly as it started with alight dusting of snow rained all day no temptation to do anything else

Wednesday Nov 13 #

1 AM

off road 15:00 [2] 1.0 km (15:00 / km)

Warm up
2 AM

orienteering race 1:33:49 [4] 8.9 km (10:32 / km)

MLS Event at Bordon Heath.
I did lose time at no 10 where I made a stupid error by using the wrong path junction has the AP and then thrashing around with the other two runners who had done the same rather than re-locating. There were several other controls where I lost some time including the hill with the water tower that I never figure out but no disasters. That said disappointed with the time which was largely due to an absence of good splits. I seemed sluggish going to early controls although the terrain is easy and, although trying, was slow and weary towards end.

Really good event in a very varied and interesting area

Tuesday Nov 12 #

off road 1:12:00 [3] 6.5 mi (11:05 / mi)

BOK run from Wick - new route over to and round Overscourt wood -very soft and muddy but had not taken Mudclaws - silly Ups! Found it quire weraysome although pace was more moderate than sometimes.

Monday Nov 11 #

off road 1:16:26 [3] 7.0 mi (10:55 / mi)

Run from Portbury, sunny but a bit of nip in the wind. Summer veg not now an issue but many fields quite wet. Kept an honest pace all the way but tiring towards end and found gate climbing a challenge

Sunday Nov 10 #

off road 1:16:20 [3] 6.5 mi (11:45 / mi)

A bit broken mostly knees / not feeling on top form so just went for an easy potter around Purdown and Frome Valley
