London City Race. 11th edition (and I haven’t missed one yet), and it was sunny for the 11th time.

Basically, it was boo hiss. I didn’t feel great so it was a real struggle to keep moving, which meant that I didn’t have enough brainspace to concentrate properly and some sloppy mistakes & general faffing crept in (particularly in the Barbican at the end.)

I was only about 5 minutes down in the end which is surprisingly good, although if only I’d been fit...

Still, an enjoyable outing with a good course and running through the centre of London remains an absolute delight.

Orienteering 21:58 [3] 4.19 km (5:14 / km) +26m 5:05 / km
ahr:141 max:170

London City Race sprint, Middlesex University

Fun race on a 1:2.000 map with lots of direction changes. Predictably, started off too fast (it’s a SPRINT race after all) and died a bit later, also because the cold was still stuck in the throat a bit.

However, all good clean smooth fun except 30’ on a multilevel control with (imho) a dodgy description. But hey.

Main race tomorrow should be fun in the heat. Must remember to start more slowly though.

Edit: Lost 13 seconds on the winner on the first 8:30, then 2:15 (excl mistake) on the next 10:00. Oops.

Another easy Richmond Park run with Abi
Lovely morning and despite the ongoing sore throat, the legs weren't too bad. Would be nice to properly recover for the City Race on Saturday though.
