Cycling long 4:05:59 [3] 102.38 km (2:24 / km)

Easter Sunday Lap of the Forest with Nicole and Matt
My longest ever ride! Had been thinking for a while it would be good to get up to 100km. Done a number of rides in the 70/80s. Nice weather for the weekend attempt with a lap taking in a lot of the New Forest. Matt joined us and nice to be out with a small group.

Fuelled with 750ml of torq (45g), one Clif bar (42g) and at least 12 jelly babies (60g). A few times flagging a little bit and glad to have the cake store at 80km ish. Had a pasty and an incredibly gooey brownie.

Great to explore a few new roads in the NW of the Forest near Hale. Didn't feel as knackered after as some of the rides have done. Back and shoulders a little tight.

Queen Elizabeth Country Park orienteering Blue 3rd + 6:48 on Tom

A return (again) to orienteering! Really good to be out again. A bit rusty (or lazy) with the use of the compass! Didn't need to use it much but should have used it more. Hills were quite hard work in places! Felt good on the warm up, but the hill to 1 got everything pumping!

On control 9, should have done a better rough compass bearing (drifted around some green/undergrowth near the end). Control 10, told myself to use the compass more but didn't check direction out of the control. Continued down a path for at least 100-200m before realising I should have checked the direction. Ian Moran followed me. Control 11 pretty doubtful and hesitant, Ian further to the right and found the control first.
