Circuits 40:00 [3]
shoes: Asics Gel GT 1120 07

ShUOC circuits. Rare (only?) appearance by camel this evening, will it become a habit? Took it easy myself, especially on the cardio exercises. Not many around so very relaxed - MikeS cried off with some excuse or other.

Run - Orienteering race 40:33 [5] 6.8 km (5:58 / km)
shoes: VJ Falcon 07

BEOC Relays, Mens premier with ShUOC, third leg with Will and Danger. Will was a bit wiped out from yesterday but had a steady run, Danger must have pulled up a few places as I only saw Dave Peel and we finished 6th overall, decent but not great result, but we were never going to be challenging for the top. Tired but not exhausted and again was feeling stronger as the course went on, also found the map much easier to interpret today, especially the fine detail.
Looking through the results 4 of the top 6 teams had identical gaffeling throughout the whole relay ? how poor is that on the part of the controller??? (and a bit unfair to the two teams who had to go there own way!)

Warm up/down 10:00 [2] 1.2 km (8:20 / km)
shoes: VJ Falcon 07

Warm up, forgot to warm down.

Run - Orienteering race 1:37:57 [4] 15.7 km (6:14 / km)
shoes: VJ Falcon 07

BEOC Classic, Culbin. Scrappy race technically (far too many mistakes) but happy with the way I ran physically after the past few weeks. Stated off slow as I didn?t want to die again, but didn?t get into the interpretation of the fine detail at all and lost 45 seconds at both 2 and 3 and a further two minutes at 8 when Nails caught me 6 minutes (somewhat annoyed there as I found a control on a feature that was obscured by the control circle ? this is turning to a pet hate of mine and a common cause of lost time, and the most frustrating thing is how easy it is to cut the circle). Didn?t try and stay with Nails and bumbled along for the next few km before realising that I was actually feeling good and should actually run harder. Finished feeling strong and with plenty of energy but with another two minutes lost in the green. Great area for running, very clean and fast and straight was great. Amazing time from OJ, but wish that I had been a bit closer.

Warm up/down warm up/down 20:00 [2] 2.0 km (10:00 / km)

Run - Trail 55:00 [2] 9.0 km (6:07 / km)
shoes: Asics Gel GT 1120 07

Headed up to Redmires to run along to High Neb in the snow, but there was harrdly any up there and none further into the Peaks - it all fell on the eastern slopes. Enough around to be very wet and get cold feet though. Did a loop through the forest at the start which was more open than I was expecting, was completely energyless from yesterdays short run though.

Run - Orienteering race 42:20 [4] 6.8 km (6:14 / km)

SYO Spring cup in Tankersley. Despite an easy few days I still had no real strength and was starting to find the course a long way. A few scrappy mistakes but mostly okay and I can still run at an okay pace but it just feels wrong. OJ, Craney and Nails around in just over 40.

Warm up/down warm up/down 10:00 [2] 1.6 km (6:15 / km)

Warm up around the woods with Danger.

Warm up/down warm up/down 5:00 [2] 0.7 km (7:09 / km)

Very gentle warm down with Camel and Danger.
