Orienteering race 1:36:00 [5] ***** 14.1 km (6:49 / km) +360m 6:02 / km
spiked:20/32c shoes: VJ Falcons

BOC classic, Pwll Du, South Wales. Area was much better than I was expecting and not quite as fast. Rough in sections but the majority was clean, not too steep either. Old mine working with lots of small detail that was impossible to read on the 1:15000 map. Had the most scrappy run that I've had for years, lost the best part of 4 minutes in silly things (two bad route choices and controls that I just couldn't see) and a further three in three very stupid mistakes. The type of area that everyone was going to lose time on though so was quite happy with my position (7th, 10 minutes down on OJ) if not my run. Ran okay but never felt strong, had plenty of energy when I finished.

Warm up/down 10:00 [2]
shoes: VJ Falcons

Didn't leave enough time to warm up as well as I should have and had sore toes at the end so never got as far as warming down.

Trail run 56:30 [3]
shoes: Asics Gel GT 2100

Redmires to Burbage mines and back along Stanedge edge. Beautiful day. Slow run with Matt, still felt a bit tired but probably more to do with lack of exercise over the past few days.

(rest day)

Should have gone for a run. Wanted to work instead but ended up doing neither. Don't feel good about it.

Circuits 45:00 [4]

Well tired this evening, none of my body was up for it. Took it as easy as I could without copping out. Lovely day but spent all of it in the studio - this weather better last past the end of term...

Warm up/down 15:00 [2]

Orienteering race 32:35 [5] ***** 4.8 km (6:47 / km) +150m 5:52 / km
shoes: VJ Falcon 07

IOC short. Lovely area and another great day and courses. As per yesterday, the map had plenty of quite serious errors, but thankfully I didn't get too caught out by them. Not quite so happy in the leg department, my calfs were tired from the rough ground yesterday and I felt as if I had no strenght on the rough middle half today. Also made a 1.15 mistake on the long leg and lost another .45 on getting bad running through the thick bits of trees on 8. Ran much better at the beginning and end section of the course. Won again but shouldn't have with a run like that, Niall was a happy second. Toes now really sore, should have worn my old pair of shoes.

Warm up/down 15:00 [3]
shoes: VJ Falcon 07

Warmed up okay but failed on much more than a walk to warm down - toes were hurting though.
