Run - Orienteering race 33:16 [5] 5.2 km (6:24 / km) +205m 5:21 / km
shoes: VJ Falcon 07

IOC Bere Island. Middle. Not the best course, had too much gratuitous climb and several dodgy control sites (the controls were in the right place (or nearly) but the map just wasn't accurate enough). Very happy to run quite well and keep going up the hills as I was pretty tired after yesterday. A few hesitations on the last two where the map was less than perfect so it was useful, having caught ndobbs, to let him do a bit of the work :). Ondrej was once again too strong finishing a minute clear, but I'm happy to finish the weekend without being beaten by any genuine Irish runners :)

Run - Orienteering race 30:00 [5] 4.7 km (6:23 / km) +245m 5:04 / km
shoes: VJ Falcon 07

IOC Bere island. Relays. Ran third leg with Boyzone and Colm O'Halloran. Boyzone had a good solid start coming back just behind David Healy of GEN, he then handed over to Tero for Colm to chase, despite not quite having the pace Colm managed to stay in touch with a good route choice on a long leg and got to the finish to send me out only seconds behind. Managed to keep with Ondrej up the hill (just) and again got a better route on the long leg to keep in touch, but I then didn't have the strength up the final climb allowing GEN the victory.
Good exciting relay and a beautiful day and made better by the fact that we were all quite well matched, but a shame that instead of gaffeling we just had three quite different courses with a few common controls and of course GEN and us ran them in the same order.

Run - Orienteering race 1:17:56 [5] **** 11.4 km (6:50 / km) +445m 5:43 / km
spiked:23/23c shoes: VJ Falcon 07

IOC, Bere Island. Long. Good to be back in West Cork and in real terrain, although Bere island is a little faster and steeper than my favourite areas. Weather mostly behaved part from a short but heavy rain/hail shower towards the end of my run. Started off slow as I was a bit concerned about how I?d cope, but felt good on the first hill so decided to push on. Ran well throughout and kept a good pace until the end, controls were all visible so lost no time on them, did stray off the line a few times, but only lost seconds. Very happy with the way I ran, navigated and with my result.

Warm up/down warm up/down 15:00 [2] 2.5 km (6:00 / km)
shoes: VJ Falcon 07

Jog from the ferry up the hill to the start and back down aftrer the finish.

(rest day)

Still in recovery mode. Bottom of left heel tender today, can't think of any event yesterday that would have caused it to be so.

Warm up/down warm up/down 22:00 [2] 3.5 km (6:17 / km)

Run - Orienteering race 30:00 [4] 4.6 km (6:31 / km)

SYO Spring Cup, Beeley Woods. A very enjoyable course and a much better evening than expected. I like running here, especially at this time of year before the vegetation grows up. No problems, although the map feels skew in plenty of places, just took it easy and used it as a test to see how I may be feeling for the weekend. Not great but not to bad is the probable answer. Will have to wait and see.
