Maximus orienteering meeting -prologue
Just one course, but a loop race so lots of gaffles, (8 runners per minute and some of the 220 entered were not elite).....but not to number just one so just run as hard as possible up the hill over the rocks, and crags, and brashings into the dark unknown, 300m where have the lights gone, 500m second wave crashed past ….ah top of the hill a boulder 3m but which??…..plenty of choice
Difficult to sort on the map where to go next, even harder on the ground, Rocks, Crags, re-entrants, rocks, brashings rocks. lights, runners.....just fantastic.....really being careful and overall not too bad - missed 11, ironically ran down wrong path (of 3 on the map) -realised quire early but 5 mins to recover and quite pleased with that, could have been much, much worse, then another 3 at a switch control that I had been to....looking for wrong feature, annoying.
Alice beat me and Mark did 47 mins.....but I did pretty well and was pleased.... what an introduction just WOW

off road 1:20:00 [3] 6.5 mi (12:18 / mi)

A plod around Frome valley, got stopped by a group of professional dog walkers with twenty four problem with Dogs but these pro dog walkers that meet up and chat are becoming a bit of an issue, also stopped to check ankle ok and replace sock/ retie shoe four times before happy so not best training ever but at least was out. (And did not feel over dressed in a Helly with a WATERPROOF in bum bag)

Monday Feb 10 #

off road 25:00 [2] 2.0 mi (12:30 / mi)

It was a bright sunny and quite mild but still windy day post storm, so decided to run in Ashton Court. I was delayed by a few things that just did not go right (but I did get the fence panel back up probably on a temp. basis) so when I arrived there were a few drops of rain, so put my ageing waterproof running cag on. Quite soon the rain turned into a squall with a deluge of rain and quite soon that turned into a blttz of machine gun fired hailstones and before I could reach any shelter in the wood, I was soaked to the bone and very cold. Rain very definitely stopped play and I retreated to the car and its which time it was blue sky.
This was before I drove across Bristol to Go Outdoors bought a Pretzl, drove home to find the battery was missing, got slowed in the traffic getting the replacement battery and then stuck altogether by the M'way Horlicks.

I did not stop at the shop that sells lottery tickets

Big storm today so did not run, but did visit the Fosters for a long, long chat about permission issues with Forest England.
She is taking the lead on this one and I am very grateful
