(rest day)

Needed a rest day after getting home. Training tour ended up being fairly low mileage because of the problems at the start of the week, but still crazy tiring

Saturday Dec 9, 2017 #

Forest-O 50:00 [3] 6.9 km (7:15 / km) +150m 6:32 / km

Newborough again (tour champs)

Borrowed distance data from Paul and guessing (maybe charitably) the time. Pretty shocking run, giving up the will to race after Bigby caught me, plenty of errors and some slow running and low motivation. Sad times all round, but its not possible to look sad in the Dan hat, so instead I was happy.

Running warm up/down 5:00 [1] 1.0 km (5:00 / km)

11 AM

Forest-O 1:16:30 [3] 9.3 km (8:14 / km) +50m 8:01 / km
shoes: VJ Bold 8

More Newborough, because the weather was too grotty for Gwanas. Shame cos I liked Gwanas at JHIs, but then not really cos this forest is class. Orienteering fairly badly through periodic hailstorms, but enjoyed it.
1 PM

Forest-O 20:37 [3] 2.9 km (7:07 / km) +20m 6:52 / km
shoes: VJ Bold 8

5 PM

Sprint-O 9:00 [3] 1.0 km (9:00 / km)
shoes: Asics GT-1000 5

AlcO, abso freezing in my binbag. Felt grotty at start, end, and every point in between. Creds to winner Tim who's clearly been well trained by Oxford ;)

11 AM

Forest-O 1:16:31 [3] 10.2 km (7:30 / km) +90m 7:11 / km

Made it to the second day at Newborough. Bunch of lovely courses in a candidate for best orienteering area I've ever been to. Made up for the last three days of stomach and neck pain, and general lack of training
2 PM

Forest-O 26:03 [5] 4.5 km (5:47 / km) +20m 5:40 / km

Bigby's sprint format at Newborough, kept with Paul and Aidan at the front and slowly shaking off Tim and Ben as the course went on. Lost contact a few times to retie shoelaces but made up ground on their mistakes. Got into the lead off a misplaced control with two legs to go, but ended up 3rd courtesy of my lack of sprint finish training.

Even better fun than Aidan hyped it up to be. Impressed.

Forest-O 16:18 [2] 2.0 km (8:09 / km) +20m 7:46 / km

Control collecting, tried to do it all off compass just out of interest to see how bad bearings are at the moment.

Achilles started to twinge towards the end so stopped and walked it.

(rest day)

Walked 2/3 up Snowdon, bailed cause of storm caroline and weird neck situation, other CUOCers continued because rest days are for the weak.

Tuesday Dec 5, 2017 #

11 AM

Forest-O 21:32 [3] 2.0 km (10:46 / km) +30m 10:01 / km
(injured) shoes: VJ Bold 8

Woke up and cracked neck, holding it at an angle all day because straightening it out was too painful.

Situation made better by not missing much - extremely poor quality skog at Llyn Elsi. Bailed on the training and went home after one exercise. The area was actually unusable.

(sick) (rest day)

Very painful stomach woke me up early and didn't get back to sleep. Figured it might be the same thing I've had two or three times before where it gets unreasonably painful for half an hour or so and then goes away very quickly. Given I'm still lying in bed and it still hurts, this must be something else.

Not how I wanted to spend training tour's first day at Newborough
