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