O race (Sprint) 35:51 [4]

The cough I've been suffering with for the last few weeks has been getting better. It's not gone, but I wasn't coughing while I was running, which was nice. Felt a bit faster as a result.

Course A
Had clean run and felt on top of things, so pushed hard as well.
Was going to simplify and run on the rough open to the east of the buildings to #4, but the building work fences came right down to the buildings, so had to switch to the middle route. Lost about 15s.
Saw the narrow passage to #15, which was one of the key shortcuts.
A bit slow coming out of #15 as I checked my route to #16

Course B
Another clean run, but didn't feel on top of it, so wasn't pushing as hard.
Routes were more complex, there were lots of steps and little bit of rain made it slippy.
Slow to #1 and #2, but I was just getting my head round the map.
Not sure my route to #3 was best. Might have been quicker to go round the south of the building for less climbing, but I didn't lose much time.

O race (Urban) 59:58 [4]

I make quite the advert for orienteering at the moment. Running around with a map and coughing like I have a 40 a day habit. Actually, not quite so bad today as I didn't have to stop with a coughing fit, but still coughed most of the way round.

A pretty solid run. No mistakes. Only missed the best routes a few times and then not by much. Running course 1, so had to pace myself. Could have been much better if I'd been pinging. <... wistfully looking into the distance ...> will I be pinging again soon? Stupid cough.
