Forest long run with Nicole
Nice to get out into the Forest for a Sunday long run, it's been a while! Parked up at Ashurst then headed onto Matley and around the woods. A bit slow to get going as it is muddy with ditches between the car park and railway bridge. Then quite wet towards Bolton Bench, then good running. Second railway bridge up seemed a bit of a deadend so backtracked. Really cool up one of my favourite paths (tall pine trees with really golden birch trees below). Then through the woods after Deerleap. Felt a bit tired at this point (60 mins into the run and therefore 4 hours after my small breakfast!)

Southampton parkrun with Nicole
First outing in the 100 top. Felt quite a brisk pace, similar to last week (on the edge of people able to talk easily) but meant I wasn't that chatty. Then to Uptons of Bassett for breakfast. Didn't get much chance to see people after.

Lordswood morning run
Parked at the bottom of the Aldermoor Drive hill, then out and back into the woods by Tanners Brook. Very muddy along that section, there may be a better place to park (need to figure that one out). Exploring a bit and trying to figure out how the middle bit links up. Found a few nice sections of runnable wood. Quite cold, could feel it in my legs and my breathing was a bit tight. Felt a bit tired on some of the hills. Nice to get out early and use a run to make having to drive to work better!

Salisbury Wessex Night League 1st!
Had been looking forward to running round here again, last orienteered here my first Classic weeekend 6 years ago and used to work at 3 in Salisbury. Knew the city centre fairly well but still saw a few new bits I'd never been to. An odds and evens format with two options of transition controls. Took a second at the start to decide where I wanted to swap.

A few hesitations and missed turnings, maybe generalising the map a bit too much (e.g. run to the end of the road, but missed a turning early on). Could definitely have punched faster! In general, happy with my overall route choice and my smaller route choices. Couldn't decide how to fit in the even control nearest the transition control, potentially may have been better to do it earlier. Running hard towards the end to maximise time. Happy for the first 500 pointer of the season (6 to go to get max score, or 5 more good events to beat last years score). Calves a bit tight after and could feel my right knee a little bit.
