Saturday Mar 27 #

Orienteering (Turf) 2:33:11 [2] 7.0 km (21:53 / km) +25m 21:30 / km

Family turf sesh; dragged BiL and the hobbits out for a wander, to boost their total and get myself an Assist medal

Started in Bonnybridge, along the F&C towpath to the Wheel, and back via Rough Castle.

Spotted Rosco flying along on his one-man attempt to repatriate Falkirk for the Stirling Massive. Hobbits were keen to knock him off his bike and make him hand over his zones, but I pointed out that Highway Robbery is a crime, and, bearing in mind that their faither is a polis, it may not be prudent to assault passers-by, particularly when I know them. Thugs!

Rosco, if you get mugged by two feral children on your way home, I know where they stay, and have written them out of my will
8 PM

Orienteering 18:21 [3] 2.4 km (7:39 / km) +40m 7:03 / km

Second effort of the day, round the town centre loop that Rosco had kindly cleared for me.

Broke into a shuffle at one point - new course record!

Friday Mar 26 #

Orienteering (Turf) 1:57:23 [2] 8.07 km (14:33 / km) +110m 13:37 / km

Easy pace round Polmont to boost the "unique zones" total for this round. Cracked level 32 with my last take, One zone failed to register.

Still haven't figured out an optimal route for Polmont - lots of fiddling around.

Thursday Mar 25 #

Orienteering 56:02 [3] 4.86 km (11:32 / km) +40m 11:04 / km

Late out, as (once again) forgot to plug the data hub in last night. Fud!

Camelon Road to Rosebank, up the towpath to Lock 16 and home via Bantaskine.

Wednesday Mar 24 #

Orienteering (Turf) 26:03 [2] 2.4 km (10:51 / km) +40m 10:01 / km

Town centre loop, clockwise this time.

Two and a half minutes quicker than on Saturday

Tuesday Mar 23 #

Orienteering (Turf) 3:02:02 [2] 11.64 km (15:38 / km) +75m 15:09 / km

Rambling turf through Camelon, picking up some new zones for this round. Emerged at the Wheel, short excursion on Union Canal, down via Tamfourhill to Lock 16, to Rosebank and home via Dollar Park

Monday Mar 22 #

Orienteering (Turf) 1:11:02 [2] 5.58 km (12:44 / km) +60m 12:05 / km

Last night-shift for three weeks, so hopefully can get a bit done going forward.

Round Callendar Park, taking it back from Oopadoopra, with a sidebar to the high station and long tunnel for some extra points.

Met a lad in Callendar Park who was surveying a wayfaring trail for local schoolkids - maybe something FVO can pick up on after he's done?

Sunday Mar 21 #

Orienteering 2:21:05 [2] 9.37 km (15:03 / km) +140m 14:01 / km

Nice day for it.

Fancied a "proper" session today, so opened with the northern half of Callendar Park. New route into Laurieston - not efficient, as it involved another 80m of climb compared to the north/south approaches.

Westquarter, Redding and home via the southern half of Callendar Park.

Think the queen must be due to visit Westquarter, as there were a lot of union flags being flown.
