Orienteering race 50:50 9.39 km (5:25 / km) +181m 4:56 / km

Compasssport Cup, Tankersley, Short Brown.
Always enjoy running here despite all the paths,probably because there is just about always enough going on to keep you thinking. Unfortunately a lot of my focus today was on how long my shoe would stay together (not long enough).

No notable errors but a lot of small bits and lost focus several times due to the shoe. Sole came lose about a quarter of the way around (thankfully just the studs, the foam below was still attached) so ran with it flapping for a long time (had tried to tape it together before starting and that was all that was keeping it on). Eventually lost in on a steep climb about three-quarters of the way around and had to run on a slick from then on.

Thankfully still able to do enough to help FVO to yet another win and my 8th time scoring for the winning club (possibly the only record (?) that I may have in British orienteering?). Actually have more than that, as that's over the past 11 years and I think FVO won the three prior to that as well?

Trail run warm up/down 10:00 [1]

I have 5 hours from breakfast until racing and I still mange not to have quite enough time to do a good warm up.

shoes: Salomon Fellraiser 2016

With Greg on a loop around Baildon Moor. Nice loop, not much in the way of hills which was a bonus as both of us were feeling rotten. Another nice day.

Trail run 1:29:13 [2] 16.1 km (5:32 / km) +395m 4:56 / km
shoes: Salomon Fellraiser 2016

Run from Faye and Greg's new place, very nice out on to Baildon Moor. Very nice route (apart from the two short stretches on the road over moor as it was fierce busy). Legs felt horrible though and was glad to finish even though not putting much effort in.

Road bike 33:15 [2] 12.95 km (2:34 / km) +32m 2:32 / km

IW. Yep.
5 PM

Road bike 31:19 [2] 12.74 km (2:28 / km) +47m 2:25 / km

HFW. Had a discussion with a taxi driver who overtook me, then slowed and stopped int the middle of the road, without indicating or looking in his mirrors while tapping on his sat-nav. According to him cyclists think they own the road.

Road bike 29:52 [3] 12.92 km (2:19 / km) +35m 2:17 / km

IW. Somehow it was a little damp in the trail this morning. Don't know where that came from.
7 PM

Road bike 31:40 12.79 km (2:29 / km) +57m 2:25 / km

HFW work in the dark, only the back-up light but fully charged so it actually did a decent job under the trees along the river.

7 AM

Road bike 31:26 [3] 12.93 km (2:26 / km) +33m 2:24 / km

IW. Another 100% gorgeous morning. Beautiful. Found GD44 at out bike rack at work, poor man must be losing it as he works elsewhere - maybe it was more than just his elbow that was damaged when that dog knocked him off his bike?
5 PM

Road bike 28:04 12.72 km (2:12 / km) +47m 2:10 / km

HFW. Weather still awesome. Moving okay as well, but finding it hard work. Needed to as only just made the evening run in time. Highlight of the day was getting a personal request of Daniel to 'like' his Facebook page - how could I refuse a teammate?
6 PM

Trail run 1:14:39 12.06 km (6:11 / km) +196m 5:43 / km
shoes: Salomon Fellraiser 2016

MDC run from Marcross along the heritage coast to Witches Point and back. Lovely sunset and moon over the cliffs. Tide on it's way out but not quite enough beach in places so plenty of rock running - must make sure that we do this in the daylight next year - though I did kind of like running on the beach in the moonlight.

7 AM

Road bike 30:51 12.97 km (2:23 / km) +32m 2:21 / km

IW. Much colder than expecting, even some frost in the parks by the river, plenty warm enough in shorts although gloves with fingers may have been nice.
5 PM

Road bike 27:47 12.71 km (2:11 / km) +47m 2:09 / km

HFW. Traffic heavy but moving, legs not so heavy and actually moving okay, pushed on quite a bit.
