Orienteering 1:10:00 [3] 6.6 km (10:36 / km)

O-Intervals on moorland terrain in Mid Wales. Area was fairly hilly and technical but running felt heavy as undergrowth and tussocks were difficult to run quickly through. Satisfied physically but technically not 100% as some errors occurred due to vague rocky slopes, looking for a boulder in boulder fields!
Focused on tough terrain running and scanning ahead to recognise large contour features as "remarkable features". All round, good training session to practice for JHI's.

Hiking hills 5:00:00 [3] 12.0 km (25:00 / km)

Epic walk up Snowdon starting at Pen Y Pass. It's the 3rd of my 3 big walks this year, Scafell Pike was in April, Ben Nevis (straight after the Scottish 6 day!) now Snowdon. Raising money for a charity called Disability Challengers which helps my brother. Amazing views when we got to the top and nicely worn out by the end.

Orienteering race 27:08 [5] 4.6 km (5:54 / km)

Nice long sprint in Southwick military base, Portsmouth. Some fairly runnable forest to start with, but mostly urban building and grass. Felt good and fairly intense opportunity to practice sprint-O. Made one significant directional mistake going to no. 13, losing 30 seconds. Misread the buildings that I thought looked similar.

First time to use Quickroute. It was very helpful to see my mistakes and where I lost time. For example, between 15 and 16 I slowed down mid-leg from 14km/h to 6km/h for 30m. I calculate this means I lost around 20 secs! Makes me think more about the impact of hesitations in sprint races.

Orienteering 2:00:00 [3] 7.5 km (16:00 / km)

Last day of the NOSE 4 day camp in the Jura. The half day included being paired up with my French friend & same age rival Mael Heretier to train with. The aim was set out a control while being hurried by the fact that the other person is waiting for you at the next checkpoint. We swapped this round each control. I ended up whacking my knee on a flat rock while falling downhill but the pain was only shock so no lasting damage. Phew!

Overall, this was the most technical training camp I've ever been on. The real deal! It was a lot of fun to train with an elite club with high standards.
