Road Running 4:54 [2] 0.67 mi (7:19 / mi) +10m 6:59 / mi

Little bit of a warm up.

Orienteering race 1:07:09 [4] 5.95 mi (11:17 / mi) +200m 10:13 / mi

SOL - Aberfoyle Brown course
SOL jinx continues! Not done any serious O-ing since Balmoral so started very steady through the first few controls. From #4 focused on navigating to fence crossing, then somehow must've folded map in such a way that I proceeded to navigate to #6. Didn't realise I'd done this until after the finish when Angela was telling me about losing her dibber near #5 and showed me where on the map! Anyhow almost had the guts to go straighter from #6 to #7 but bottled it and went long round the track. OK to #12 though was feeling fairly tired/below par following recent bugs. From #12 took a bearing and progressed carefully through the thick woods. A junior flying by distracted me and I kind of latched on but this took me too far north and then got into big trouble. Eventually bailed out to south to relocate (must've been v close to control at one point!). Then another bit of stupidity, I'd lost track of time and looked at my watch which said 1.19. I immediately thought I'd been out for 1h19m and was probably heading to 2 hours+ so decided to bail out and run back so the family weren't waiting for ever and a day. A couple of minutes later I checked the watch and it dawned on me it had flicked to the time screen and I'd only been out an hour (doh!). Anyhow, didn't have the heart to back-track so a shameful dnf! TBH, head wasn't really in it today. And didn't feel so bad when I found out about missed control as would have been gutted to finish then find out!

Road Running 53:28 [3] 6.95 mi (7:42 / mi) +160m 7:11 / mi

Ran over to AS. The other guys had been held up so headed off round Queens Drive anti-clockwise on my own. Couldn't resist a wee jog/walk up The Brutal en route. Bumped into Marco & Dave at the top loch so they turned and joined me back down to the boulder, then back to work.
