Orienteering race (Brindley Blue) 1:15:00  *** 8.8 km (8:31 / km) +140m 7:54 / km
ahr:158 max:173 (sick)
Learned at 8:30am that we had to go to Manchester today, so added a side trip to Cannock Chase Walton Chasers event on the way. Arrived 2mins before EOD ended at 12 (comment was, "you just made it, with your car arriving in the carpark sideways". Hmmmm). Lovely sunny day, bitterly cold wind tho. Start official warned us that a control had been stolen, so we didn't have to visit that site. Turns out 2 controls had been stolen, and 5 more controls were in the wrong place by up to 100m bc the Printer had used the wrong file after the remap. Bit hard to void 14 legs so results were left as is. Dave & I each lost about 15mins bc of it. I found the waist high heather tough going in the open areas, and much of the forest was shin high brambles - pretty much had to just divert to the tracks to move fast. Hopefully JK areas aren't like that (& the organisers get it right!).
I have picked up yet another cold too, razor blades throat last night/today and really struggled running as HR was high.
