Saturday Nov 23 #

Controlling 1:30:00 [2] 6.0 km (15:00 / km)

Putting controls out and checking at Blaise.
Quite tricky, which was nor what I was expecting. I did not really get on very well with this version of map for some reason

Friday Nov 22 #

off road 1:42:00 [3] 9.0 mi (11:20 / mi)

Wet day, ground was sodden and flooded. Trailed after Chris around the Mendips. Day started badly as I had made a mistake in the directions so Jackie must have gone to a different place , what a mess up really sorry. We waited for a while so the rain could change to heavy. The theory that Chris would be broken after the OMM lasted till the first hill......went passed the church and sloshed around the west end and then over Dolebury Warren before climbing up the moor to the end of the Tynings fram lane and then swam across the Somme to Beacon Batch, down the hill and sloshed across the bottom and then back on to Dolebury Warren. mostly retracing steps but took the wet path back to the Sawn. No sign of rust on the iron man. A rather longer but enjoyable and worthwhile true training run. Would have been impossible without Mudclaws (which really are on last legs)
Did I mention that it was wet today

Thursday Nov 21 #

off road 1:17:55 [3] 7.0 mi (11:08 / mi)

CW north from the Dog -a cold grey winters day with a temperature of 4, so ran in many layers and not terribly fast

Wednesday Nov 20 #

1 AM

off road 15:00 [2] 0.8 km (18:45 / km)

2 AM

orienteering 1:12:43 [3] 7.9 km (9:12 / km)

MLS at Sildbury hill again. A bit hesitant at a couple and snagged in some bramble. Lots of controls so quite pleased to avoid any major Horlicks. Also ok that race was a bit shorter as it is becoming a bit familiar

Tuesday Nov 19 #

off road 56:18 [3] 5.0 mi (11:16 / mi)

Potter around Purdown , very wet and greasy and no mudclaws so very slow in places. Stopped twice once to talk to Phil who is recovering and later to watch a badger also 'pottering around ' in the gloom. So as he disappeared into his set I mused that are homes are about 500m apart

Monday Nov 18 #

off road 1:05:30 [3] 6.5 mi (10:05 / mi)

Ran along the coast path from the Portishead Lido. sunny and not that cold, interesting and threatening churn in the channel (its always different) I guess caused by very high Volume Severn battling the incoming tide. Anyway cocked up the turn round point a bit so shorter than usual but not necessarily a bad thing as quite heavy legged today

off road 12:00 [2] 0.8 km (15:00 / km)

Warm up
2 AM

orienteering race 1:38:28 [5] 8.9 km (11:04 / km)

NGOC Regional Event at Parkend. Really nice to be back in the Forest of Dean. A couple of small errors including the penultimate control and a bad route choice on long leg going too straight in brambly forest. But it was wet, muddy and more vegetation than in the Spring so excuses for slow pace! and yo ho ho when I finished I was not dead last like last week …..some one was slower Hurrah!
