10 AM

Running (WU) 20:00 [3] 1.7 km (11:46 / km)

Jog to the start
11 AM

Orienteering race (White Rose Long) 1:01:00 [3] *** 6.0 km (10:10 / km) +40m 9:50 / km
spiked:8/12c shoes: INOV 8 x-talons (Blue&Pink)

Actually had a nightmare... by the looks of things so did everyone else though. Made 3 bad mistakes. Course was only meant to be 3.6K but I ran 6K. Took 11 minutes to #1 as I misread a veg' boundary as a light green block of forest further on on my map, mistake due to lack of concentration.
Spiked the next 2 controls, which were quite hard and I was pleased. Then went on to take 14mins to the next control. Basically lost the will to live after that. Messed up #8 as well as I was a bit too high. Managed to still hold on to my win overall. Lost by 10seconds!! this day.

Jog to start

spiked:13/14c shoes: INOV 8 x-talons (Pink&Yellow)

Course was 3.1K, running up in the W16A class. Probably my cleanest run I've had in a while, was really pleased. One minor 30-40second mistake on #5 because I didn't see the control in among the brambles.
3 PM

Running warm up/down (Sprint WU) 10:00 [3] 1.0 km (10:00 / km)

Some sprints and jogging around etc
4 PM

Orienteering race (WR Sprint) 8:21 [3] *** 1.3 km (6:25 / km)
spiked:18/19c shoes: New Balance Vazee Rush

White Rose Sprint, forgot to start my watch so started it 1/2 the way round the course. On the wrong side of the building for #1 but other than that a clean run.

Orienteering race (Night Score) 32:00 [4] *** 4.3 km (7:27 / km) +50m 7:02 / km
shoes: INOV 8 x-talons (Pink&Yellow)

White Rose Night Score Event.
The first half of the score I was really proud of, ran hard and fast and nailed the controls. Only my second ever night event too! Then there was 2 bingo controls in the middle of green forest and I messed them up badly. Ended up not even finding them! Then made a stupid decision and went the long way round to the finish and ended up late, obviously a tired mistake. Positives to take from the first 1/2 though!

Running (Ypres Run) 32:30 [3] 6.0 km (5:25 / km)
shoes: New Balance Vazee Rush

Pre-breakfast run along the canal and past Menin Gate! Was really hot running even though it was quite early. Had no idea where I was going so had to keep stopping and waiting for my dad to catch up ;) It's not every day you can run in a place as beautiful as Ypres!!!
6 PM

Swimming (In the Sea) 1:00:00 [1]

Went down to the beach and had a swim in the sea, it was actually really warm in the water! Nice way to end the holiday.
