Orienteering race 38:44 [5] **** 5.4 km (7:10 / km) +130m 6:24 / km
14c shoes: New sneakers

British Relays. SYO team with Cathy and Kim.
Wanted to run first leg because I felt I needed the extra motivation to race hard and I haven't started first for a while. Ran the first part well, just going for it basically and more confident in my navigation after yesterday. c7 was in the green, I had a longer gaffle there than some and got caught up by a couple, but we went into the green again at c9 and this time my gaffle was shorter, so I got away again. Then ran hard for the final few controls.
Cathy ran 2nd and had a mostly steady run, then Kim had a blinder to bring us into 2nd place. Another silver for SYO!

Orienteering race 1:10:10 [4] **** 9.5 km (7:23 / km) +220m 6:37 / km
25c shoes: New sneakers

British Long Champs, Culbin East (Scotland).
Steady to the first 3 controls, then lost time (2.5mins) on c4. Was very close but decided to run out to a track and check I had gone in off the bend. This was safe but took time, maybe should have just run around a bit first? Then lost time on c5 (1.5mins) as I thought I was looking for a spur but it was actually a gully (I was very close again but just couldn't work out the contours). The rest of the course was drama free but I was a bit off the pace in the end and I don't think I was running as hard as I could have, and I was too cautious coming into controls. Should worry less and just get on with it I think. 8th place.

Running warm up/down 15:00 [2]

Bit of a warm-up. No cool-down as when I finished I got really really cold and stayed cold for ages and never felt like jogging.

Running intervals 15:00 [4]
shoes: New sneakers

Woke up to lots of snow. Not surprised. Went running up Endcliffe after work, it was raining and really cold. 10 x 1min (30secs rec), just a little session before the weekend. Not feeling very good, probably because it was so cold and I can't run in this weather :(

Running 15:00 [3]
shoes: New sneakers

First and last part of the run.

Orienteering (Spring Cup) 55:20 [4] **** 6.8 km (8:08 / km)
22c shoes: o-shoes

Evening event on Tankersley. Orienteering ok, good in the control circle but direction out of some controls let me down a bit.

Running 1:23:00 [3]
shoes: New sneakers

A run with Laura up Rivelin and around some streets and hills. Raining and very muddy, but lots of chatting and some new tracks, so it was nice.
